This generation is doomed.
Not the babies just being born but the ones in grade school right now, these 90’s babies. They got the game, the players, & life in general all effed up!
I was doing my usual peruse through the Shade Room & came across this:
MiMi put it nicer than I EVER could have! My response would’ve been along the lines of “Oh you poor, sad, ignant, misguided child! You should use the same phone you used to type that bulls**t to google ‘braids’ or ‘cornrows’, see who’s pictures pop up, learn something & then #sitdownandshutup”
So child -lawd I hope that’s a child & not somebody grown- you mean to tell me that you grew up with the Internet, have it at your fingertips, but you REFUSE to use it!! Google is not your enemy! & she’s always free .99!!
From Kendall Jenners “bold braids” to Kim & Khloe’s trendsetting boxer braids
*insert the most dramatic eye roll ever seen*
Just because your “fave” wears or does something doesn’t mean they’re the originators. Hell just looking at the Kardashian-Jenner clan from the first years of the show to now you can see there isn’t much original period!
& no, I’m not hating. From time to time I too find myself keeping up with the Kardashian’s. The problem is when we (African Americans) do something it’s less than but when a white woman does it it’s now “trendsetting, unique and bold”!
If you walk up to a random black woman on the street 9.99 times outta 10 she wore braids as a child, has some right now (under her weave counts) or plans on getting some for the summer.
Amandla Stenberg said it best but the main thing I want y’all to do is your research before you try to come for somebody -keyboard killers & thumb thugs especially!
Oh, also I need you to know & recognize that #BlackGirlMagic is real. We are beautiful, our hair defies gravity, our melanin is popping and you’re mad. We don’t need your permission to do or be anything & whether have agree or choose to be bitter this movement ain’t goin nowhere.
