Negrita / Dear Little Black Woman

In a song by Jennifer Lopez (JLo) and Maluma, released in 2020, JLo refers to herself as “tu negrita del Bronx.” "Little black girl from the Bronx". In fact, the initial title of the song, which turned out to be titled “Lonely”, was going to be “Tu Negrita Del Bronx.” As a result of this, Lonely created a mixed reaction after being released. JLo expressed on Twitter that it is well known that she is a Puerto Rican from the Bronx, and that she has never tried to hide that to take advantage. While some critics considered what was said in the song as cultural appropriation and an offense against black women, others claimed that the term "negrita" is not only translated as an association with skin color, but also as a term of endearment that all the world uses.

One reason is that a real-time list of operational beds isn’t available, which makes it difficult to connect people in emergency departments to care in more appropriate settings. To address the growing behavioral health crisis, the NC Department of Health and Human Services is today launching a new tool to help hospitals and other providers quickly find an open bed where people can get the behavioral health treatment they deserve.
