All it needed was a little groovy love.
I love it!
Hi Tee here. I live in the states. I live in New Orleans, but am currently attending college in small town Iowa. It's a very humbling experience. I have finally accepted that I am the most happy when I am me. Who is that? Well I guess this is a journey of self-discovery for the both of us. I not only want to find me, I also want to shape a better me. A me who is not afraid of being the weird, wildly romantic, passionate, brown human being that I am. Then again; these are all just adjectives.
Just so we’re all clear on what we just read. Black people make up 22% of the poor but only 14% of the government benefits. Meaning, 8% of poor Black people are not taking government benefits when they need them.
While, white people make up 42% of the poor but receive 69% of the government benefits. Meaning, there are white people who are classified as middle class who are receiving government benefits.
…but welfare queens and stuff.
The question why I would LET Willow cut her hair. First the LET must be challenged. This is a world where women, girls are constantly reminded that they don’t belong to themselves; that their bodies are not their own, nor their power or self determination. I made a promise to endow my little girl with the power to always know that her body, spirit and her mind are HER domain. Willow cut her hair because her beauty, her value, her worth is not measured by the length of her hair. It’s also a statement that claims that even little girls have the RIGHT to own themselves and should not be a slave to even their mother’s deepest insecurities, hopes and desires. Even little girls should not be a slave to the preconceived ideas of what a culture believes a little girl should be.

Someday, someone is going to look at you like you’re the best thing in the world.
