Black History month huh? Well, everyday is Black History for me. So from time to time I may go off on rants such as this.
There’s no doubt I am a avid lover of black history, always have been. In everything I do it’s at the forefront of my mind. Contrary to popular beliefs, the most unique aspect of our culture is not our rhythm but our creativity. All individuals are a big bundle of past experiences. Same thing is true of cultures. All Jewish people aren’t good businessmen, all Asians are not good at math and science, and all African Americans don’t naturally have soul but we are amazing people. That’s why is infuriates me to see all the coonery and buffoonery and yes, I am aware it’s not just limited to the Black community but because I’m a proud Black woman I’m only concerned with the way our culture of people are viewed. If our strong black leaders from the past (who are no longer living) were to see the disgusting, demeaning, and socially irresponsible images out there today they would be utterly ashamed and disgusted considering their main goal was to uplift, educate and empower the people. SMH. I’m pretty sure this isn’t why they put their own life on the line. Have self pride and self respect for yourself or no one else will either.
Buuuuuut on a lighter note, I scored these fabulously comfortable jeans from my local Goodwill store for only $12. I was sold when I saw the embroidered flower patterned design on the lower legs. Of course I paired it with a graphic tee, Malcolm X … my most favorite individual from history. I must say, I do love my Black History and Political tees. I get them from http://www.artistictee.com/ladie_s_political_tees
The shoes are from Target and the accessories are from my local flea market. Shades and handbag are from Korea and of course I always do my own hair :)
