black girls are so pretty like wow kudos to us
if a white girl said this it’d be considered racist
but why they gotta fuck with us though. they don’t understand SHIT. therefore, they shouldn’t say SHIT. PERIOD!
i want a close group of conscious girl friends with natural hair and protective styles, who swear by coconut oil, love vegetarian recipes. we can twist each other’s hair at night and protest social justice together. we can paint and do each other’s box-braids. go thrifting…
Can we cheer each other on and give each other praise on the streets?
Today, my hair looks like crap. But when I went to the mall, one woman yelled out “Yes! I love the natural! It looks so beautiful!!” To be honest… That really made my day and caused me to feel good about myself.
So can we start doing this? No matter what curl pattern or length, let’s cheer each other on and give out compliments! We should uplift each other!
cultural appropriation is putting fireflies in a jar
and letting them light up your bedroom
as you drift off to sleep.
and when you wake up all the lights have flickered out
but only when you’re older do you realize
you slowly suffocated them so
that you could enjoy their glow.
Okay. I feel like everyone should get over the whole white girl wearing Bindi thing. You’re mad because it’s religious, but the jewelled ones aren’t even religious. It’s the red dot that is strictly religious. Almost everyone in India wears bindis and I can assure you not all of them are Hindu.
I’m Jamaican, should I tell anyone who’s not African to take out their dreads? I’m Christian, should I tell anyone who’s not Christian to never wear crosses because it’s an important part of my religion? Lol, you’d think I’m crazy right? So where do you get off saying that about bindis?
