Nicki Minaj speaking up about the backlash she received for her “Anaconda” cover. There will forever be a difference in how black bodies are viewed even when being marketed the same way. When black women show their bodies they are hoochies and hoes. But when white women show their bodies in a similar or even more revealing manner it is ART or fine. It can be sold in stores, seen in households without a second glance. I’m not agreeing or disagreeing with women showing skin but pointing out there’s no difference between the two. Intersectionality is real. Hard out here for black women. Feminist movement never claimed us.

Y’all don’t understand the importance of this image right here. Y’all don’t know the strength that lies within a mother lap, a mothers embrace. Nothing in this world can compare the peace of mind you get when you put your head in your moms lap and just rest. Just look at this picture, the child looks so at peace, as if nothing in this world bring harm upon them and the mom knows this, just look at her, the mom knows that on her watch, nothing can harm her child. 

Respect and love and mothers yo.

"When I got back to school from learning how to braid hair in Kenya, I also decided it was going to be my side hustle. I was going to make some money braiding people’s hair. So I went through the great trouble of creating a poster but I just didn’t have the heart to charge anyone so my friends would make appointments with me and I would spend the weekend braiding their hair, and I just couldn’t charge them so I never made any money from it."Lupita Nyong’o for Vogue [x].
