I don’t care about 1) celebrities 2) fashion 3) make up routines 4) waist trainers or anything else BUT I’m deeply interested in what it takes to challenge (at the very least) what is socially acceptable- to feel and discuss. Do we gotta make a trap song about fighting for social justice? Is our threshold for pain so unbelievably low that we can just sweep Ferguson under the rug? Why is it socially unacceptable to demand basic human rights? Not because we’re black but because we’re human. Are we that tired? Or are we a generation of cowardice adults? Just curious.
Determine what is for the greater good. Stick to it.
RIP Trayvon Martin
gives me chills
He didn’t do a damn thing wrong
I’m gonna reblog this every time I see it because never forget.
Happy Birthday, Trayvon.
iqianamcleod asked: I am 4 months in with sisterlocks, if i wanted to go smaller would it be possible to do so?
Yes you can make them smaller using the “splitting method”. I don’t recommend using the splitting method unless but the Sisterlocks are huge. The reason is that sometimes the trade off os too great. So you may have smaller locks but it will definitely compromise your grid and it’s continuity. When you split a Sisterlock in half, one Sisterlocks will be short and the other long. You would have to wait until the shorter lock caught up with the other. That’s pretty awkward.
I suggest combing them out. Not at once but one at a time. This way you can get a fresh start and skip the process of the split which can be pretty annoying. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need more information.
Good luck to you!
A beautiful Sphinx created by Kara Walker which perfectly captured the exploitative servitude (mammy) and hypersexualization of Black Women in America. The best part is the clear vulnerability in the face of the sphinx. Photo’s can’t capture the full range of emotions here but I feel fortunate to have had the opportunity to witness her work in my lifetime. #karawalker
