Dark Skinned Women With Natural Hair Cannot Wear Red Lipstick

ImageAs a dark skinned woman in America, I’ve been told plenty of times that red lipstick or any lip stick color in general would not be suitable for me because “lipstick wasn’t made for dark skinned women.” It’s shocking to know that this stigma against black women is still alive and well. In America’s eyes, it’s bad enough that I cursed myself by returning to my natural locks, but now I’ve decided to wear lipstick? How tragic! *insert sarcasm*

Even abysmal rapper A$AP Rocky has gone out of his way to share about his disgust of darker women wearing red lipstick. One may think, ‘oh who cares about the opinion of some rapper guy,’ but the truth is that he is only regurgitating what he has been taught all of his life–dark skinned women are ugly.

Well I’m here to prove that this statement is a complete and utter lie. Any shade of the spectrum can wear any color lipstick they want because all shades of brown are beautiful. For far too long, darker women have been oppressed on their choices to do what they want with both their hair and faces and I’m not gonna take it anymore.

It really does not matter how anyone feels about my choice and other dark skinned women’s choice to wear lipstick. If we like it, we’ll wear it with our faces beat for the gawds! And you can continue to be mad…from OUTSIDE of the club 🙂

Creating Natural Hair Barbies

Finding barbies with natural hair is almost impossible, especially when we want our little girls to love and embrace their hair textures! Luckily, I found this video on how a woman changed her Barbie dolls hair from straight to kinky. Maybe you can do the same for your daughters doll.

Natural Nazi’s

Natural Hair Nazi’s have to be put to death in the name of natural hair. A natural hair Nazi is a person or group of people who have converted to natural hair and are so pro-natural that they offend others with their actions. These are the people who go around policing others based on how they wear their natural hair and to be quite honest it’s getting completely out of control. Whether a person straightens, colors or blow dry’s their hair is none of your business and it does not make them any less natural than you are. Some people take this ‘going natural’ thing a little too far. If you want to police someone, police yourself and learn how to mind your own business.Image
