The Black body, more so of women, have stood on the opposite side of the narrow Eurocentric standards of beauty. Black hairstyles have defiantly rebelled against and even when straightened added creative magic of Blackness and Boldness. 

Black hair, whether relaxed or natural, locked or shaven is beautiful. Black women are beautiful.

* are mean to their mothers
* are against feminism
* only want you for your body
* will/are leading you on
* think you owe them something
* think they are entitled to your body

When will Hollywood realize “black” films have widespread appeal?  (via micdotcom)

If we define a “black movie” simply as any movie where at least two of the lead characters are black, then some of the films that were (surprise) box office hits this year include: Ride Along, which earned $134 million domestically; Think Like a Man Too, which opened at No. 1 this summer; and About Last Night, a remake of the 1986 romantic comedy originally starring an all-white cast, which pulled in an impressive $25.6 million on opening weekend. The most unexpected success story was The Best Man Holiday, which opened at $30 million in December 2013. As NPR asked, “Why on earth would a $30 million opening for an ensemble romantic comedy with a largely African-American cast that includes some very well-liked, telegenic actors be beyond fantasy?”

There are accepted revolutions, revolutions which are called revolutions; there are refused revolutions, which are called riots.
