Black Women wearing weave does not equal self hate.

I hate defending this over and over again. I have been natural for 8 years. Didn’t do a Big Chop or rock a Teeny Weeny Afro. I didn’t go natural because my hair was damaged or did not grown. I only wanted to stop getting relaxers because I did not get them often and I hated chemical burns.

While transitioning and even now I like to wear weave sometimes. Sew ins for me are a great way to give my hair a rest. No I don’t hate that I don’t have hair like Rapunzel nor am I covering up an insecurity. I simply like weave. That’s its that’s all.

It’s only black people especially Black men that have this stupid theory that a black woman wearing a weave mean she does love herself. Newsflash WE ARE THE ONLY WOMEN THAT WEAR WEAVE! Whether you believe it or not white women and other women that are not black wear weave as well. They’ve done it for years. How come they don’t get the backlash for it? Why is that white women can dye their hair blonde & it’s not frowned upon? I’m thoroughly confused.

Stop with the brain washed theories. Black women are unique when it comes to our hair. We are versatile when it comes to styling it. We do not hate ourselves. We love being able to switch it up to express who we are.

Day 1 of Twitter and IG Detoxing

Say what you want but being Black is the Shit.

Often imitated. Never duplicated.

Everything is better in Black.

We are more than what the media makes us out to be.

Mike Brown jury gets extension, charges for Ferguson officer may be delayed until January

A St. Louis judge has granted an extension to the grand jury that has been tasked with deciding whether to charge a Ferguson police officer in the fatal shooting of teenager Michael Brown. The jury now has until January 7 to decide on an indictment.

St. Louis County Judge Carolyn Whittington made the decision on Tuesday to extend the deadline, St. Louis County Director Paul Fox, reported CNN. The jury’s regular term was set to expire on Wednesday.

The grand jury is to decide whether to charge Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown, a black teenager who was unarmed at the time of the shooting.

#ArrestDarrenWilson, #JusticeforMikeBrown

This is how justice is meted out for Black people in this country. This is completely disrespectful!!! Judge jury and murderer are all complicit in this.

Imagine some unarmed white kid getting by police—and I say imagine because that’s what you would have to do because it never really happens—and the prosecutor refuse to follow general procedure and bring charges…then they ask a grand jury to bring charges and they delay for months …then the deadline comes and they just extend it some more…A BLATANT FUCK YOU to the family…

How would white people react??!!

No justice for us! I hope you all get the message because there’s no subtlety in it…no nuance…just a blatant “fuq you!!”

Still only three fifths…
