"Home is a place we all must find, child. It’s not just a place where you eat or sleep. Home is knowing. Knowing your mind, knowing your heart, knowing your courage. If we know ourselves, we’re always home, anywhere."
The Wiz (1978)
But there isn’t a singular look for African women and girls
Somali bantu women
And many more….
"Don’t wear a hoodie if you don’t want to be mistaken for a criminal and shot."
"Don’t get drunk at a party if you don’t want to be sexually assaulted."
"Don’t argue with a cop if you don’t want to get killed."
"Don’t walk home by yourself if you don’t want to get raped."
Victim blaming 101: Everyone should live in fear from ever doing anything.
Some white woman just asked me (awkwardly) for a foundation that was MY skin tone and red or pink lipstick because she was going to an Africa themed party.
Someone give me the strength to keep my hands to myself.
YOOOOO did she just ask…
I work at a makeup counter -_-
THAT BITCH IS GONE!
Literally pushed out of the store after leaving me with this little gem:
Manager: Ma’am, you cannot ask a black woman for the supplies for blackface-
Her: It is a COSTUME! Like, why are you being so damn difficult!? It is a party for AFRICA! I have to be black, OBVIOUSLY!?
Me: Can’t you be a lion or something? They live in Africa-
Her: Don’t be stupid.
Manager: I know your intentions, and we don’t do that here. Please leave.
Her: I’m really sick of you guys playing the victim here. You’re acting like I asked for a Hitler costume!
Me: Security, can you please do something?
Her: *being pushed out* I should have NEVER asked a nigger for help! All you people do is complain about everything and sit on your asses with no jobs, lazy people!
Me: You are AT MY JOB RIGHT NOW, you crazy bitch!
In short, I am REALLY over some white people today.
You handled that so well. Frankly, I would have had my foot in her ass.
What the actual fuck. Folks are rather brazen these days
'Can’t you be a lion or something? They live in Africa-'

OMG!!! Help locs girl find her cousin. This is LEGIT. Please boost!
the way I see it, “black pride” (or any sort of “minority” pride movement) means “I am proud of who I am DESPITE those who have told me and my people that whiteness is superior” while “white pride” means “I am proud of who I am BECAUSE whiteness is superior” and that’s why it’s ok to say one but not the other
