Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.
I hate comments like this. Blue Ivy is not even 3 years old yet and people are telling her to do her hair. is she suppose to have a weave or straighten it? no. her parents are embracing her natural hair and she looks adorable regardless of how her hair looks. she is a child!!!
Since when the fuck is an Afro not done? Y’all niggas better chill on that child’s hair.
Have to agree on the first comment although I will say simple ponytails and braids are natural styles that they can do to her hair, they don’t have to perm, relax or straighten her hair, when a lot of people say “do her hair” we mean a damn ponytail or a cute braid style. Just because she’s Beyonce don’t mean I’m going to agree with everything she chooses to do (or not do) You don’t see North West hair undone. #JustMyOpinion. #SorryNotSorry
What an ignorant anti black response. Do you feel powerful tearing down black children?
For the record, the majority of the pictures of North West show her hair NOT styled or “done”. You are upholding Eurocentric beauty standards and anti black racism… Congrats. North has hair similar to her mothers, so of course it stays straight on her head. Blue Ivy’s hair is natural with a tight coil pattern and the majority of the pictures that include her have her hair in specific styles. The choice to leave your hair in a natural style doesn’t mean it’s not done or professional. Both babies are beautiful and that is exactly what they are BABIES… Who the hell are they trying to impress; You? I promise you that Blue and North would consider you irrelevant in the grand scheme of things.
I mean you may as well say “black hair is ugly, beyonce keeps her hair in a blonde weave why can’t she put a lace front on her child’s head and black features are ugly” because that is what you meant.
There are plenty of other things in the world to worry about…. Like ferguson, global warming, food/water supply, and why your edges just can’t seem to grow back. Have several seats and reevaluate, thanks.
Minaj’s perspective has always been multi-dimensional; she comes forward as an immigrant, as a black woman, as a female rapper, as a sexual being, as an artist, as a storyteller, as a survivor, as a bad bitch. She comes forward in order to tell her own story, be it one of domination or declaration. Minaj has even come forward as a feminist. She’s actually done it over and over again. And yet, instead of simply embracing her own discourse on the topic, feminists often can’t wrap their heads around it.
