Greetings to all of my angels!
“SAY IT LOUD…I’M BLACK AND I’M PROUD” and that I am. As you may or may not know I am of African decent and I consider myself black. I love my black sisters and brothers.
However, it seems that a lot of my people don’t feel the same. It is alot of self hate and colorism going on within the black community agmonst each other.
Oh how I greatly dislike these hashtags. We as a people need to become united because at the end of the day we are all catogrized as Black/African American. I have a lighter skin complexion and I have an afro.
People call me a contradiction. I get offended when people say that. How the hell am I a contradiction if this is how my hair grows out of my head?
I guess Willie Lynch did a good job keeping us divided. My hair has caused contraversy throughout my life. I’ve been riticuled and teased for wearing my natural hair. Isn’t this world messed up?
Its only been recently since I’ve seen a rise in naturalistas in the black cmmunity and I blame that on the documentery Good Hair.
“I hate black people,” -Black Person. Everytime I see that tweet it makes my flesh crawl and my eyes tear up. We need to do better.
If we can’t love ourself, how can we expect others to love us?
