Just to let you (the world) know – I am still all BLACK! – Unapologetically BLACK*
I like my baby w| baby hair and afros. I like my negro nose w| Jackson Five nostrils.
In a country, in a world filled w| hypocrisy.
Blackness is not what whiteness considers virtuous. But yet, our culture, our skin color, our beautiful features are mimicked by those same person’s who hate us – but are so, and have been, infatuated w| everything that makes us divine.
Beyonce is in solidarity w| her fellow black women – and men.
With the Tidal (the music streaming service owned by Jay Z and friends) announcement on Friday, $1.5 million will be donated to the Black Lives Matter organization as well as other civil rights groups including: New York Million Hoodies, Hands Up United, NY Justice League, the Oscar Grant Foundation and the Trayvon Martin Foundation.
This is exactly what we need from our black celebrities – awareness, open discussions, conscious music and attributions to our communities.
