Mary J Blige, The Hip Hop Icon ***messymandella***

   “The Queen Of Hip Soul” will forever be timeless. Mary J Blige changed the game with her trademark fashion and imitated hair styles.

 

 

Rashida Jones created a nostalgic 1990’s music video as a representation of our women in music.

 

I posted the video below on this website in a previous  post.

TLC, Eve, Lil Kim, Faith Evans, Total, Brandy, and Aaliyah will forever challenge beauty stereotypes.

Women challenge ideologies  of fashion or beauty standards with  unapologetic expression. 

Don’t be mislead by a superficial  definition of what constitutes as “sexy” or “beautiful ” in our culture.

 

 

Our ethnic beauty traits are admired and often duplicated.

Celebrate your heritage.

Women are obsessed with excessive tanning, lip injections, and butt injections, just not our ethnic hair…

Nappy hair is not the celebrated look…

 

Brainwashed

 

We as a society can’t judge black women that wear long silky  weave, when apparently Society views ethnic hair as a curse.

Ladies of all races, admire your distinct genetic traits.

 

 Nappy hair is not a curse, but we have stepped into this racist mindset that it is… 

 

You  are beautiful regardless of your hair weave or your nappy hair.

 

Ladies,

No matter what others believe, listen when I remind you that your crowns will  fit comfortably on the top of your weave, braids, or your curly afro.

You will blind the world with your light.

Keep doing you!

Always wear your crown like our Queen, Mary J Blige. 

 

 

This is what  sexuality and greatness looks like… 

 

Excellence

I Didn’t Forget You Girls! We Still Need To Bring Back Our Girls***messymandella***

We teach our young girls to run if you feel threatened and scream! These kidnapped little girls that are maliciously apprehended in day light do not have the opportunity or support to do so, by their government.

These little girls are taken from their mothers and fathers in broad daylight. These girls are terrified, some never even experienced their first menstrual cramps or a chance to understand their transition into womanhood.

A majority  of  these kidnapped girls are still losing their baby teeth and are too powerless to do anything but cry. If families contest the kidnappings they are executed and sometimes their huts are destroyed and burnt to the ground.

Families have to keep migrating with their few belongings and in poverty to save their little girls. The families are powerless against machine guns and a militia. Even as adults we can’t fathom being sold into sexual slavery without a prayer of glancing into our mother’s or father’s eyes. Imagine our little girl’s  nightmare!

Our little girls deserve love and prayers, because no one should never have their innocence stolen. I know it will haunt you forevermore.

We pray but now it is time for action. These little girls and let them live as children and experience their God Given right for protection, undying devotion and a playful childhood. Every little girl  and boy deserves that…
