New Trailer: ‘Orange Is the New Black' Season 2 - June 6
"I have to learn how to say no a lot. Life is too short for anything else."
Introduce yourself! S: I am Sarah Nicole François, I’m from Mars and I’m just passing through this planet right now. I’m a writer, artist and a designer of a clothing brand called 000sportwear.us//…
as I mentioned before, I didn’t really get a chance to delve into the topic like I wanted to. I just briefly mention that I didn’t consider myself “natural” or a “naturalista,” whatever my words were, in the few questions about my hair that I was asked.
but if you read the comments below, it definitely didn’t stop people from “feeling some kind of way,” as expected.
give it a read and lets discuss!
(special thanks to my interviewee Meosha!)
it’s very true that certain textures are privileged over others, I still hear the words “good hair” within the natural community and cringe internally. Hearing some comments about black women in regards to their hair is so fucking sad and depressing and the “movement” does nothing to bolster them at all, just reinforce tired tropes. I’ve heard my stepmother, who has relaxed so aggressively for years say, “I can’t have those nigger naps” and I felt so fucking sick…it was that same attitude that went towards myself when I was forced to relax my hair as a kid. I think representation is what matters, more women with all textures feeling comfortable about their hair, and being given a space where they can feel that. Within the natural hair community issues of colourism are easily glossed over (And instead reinforced)forgetting that they influence our perceptions of our natural hair and react badly to those not ready to take the plunge.
Fuck ‘em. When I was featured, the commentary got disabled due to the amount of negativity coming in stating that I was ‘just a pretty face’ and that I didn’t give any ‘hair care advice’. Bear in mind that I stated that I just don’t care for my hair the way that some do. It’s all fucking bullshit. Set aside my boo Sarah’s explanation on why she excludes herself from the ‘naturalista’ click, it’s bloody ridiculous that people can so readily jump down her throat because she’s beautiful AND clearly, strongly opinionated. It’s a hair blog. And it addressed her hair. Period. The fact that an explanation had to follow her statements to put readers at ease is farty bird crap. The fact that people addressed her body and her looks is an even bigger pile of warm shit. People like that can go suck on each others’ natural poof until it’s nice and moist. *takes last drag from cigarette, throws on ground, snuffs out with shoe and walks away*
LMFAO YOU CAN ALWAYS COUNT ON YAGAZIE TO GO ALL THE WAY THE FUCK IN
Jibril - Tangul - I wasn’t paid to say this: Zanerobe maybe makes some of the most comfortable pants in the industry. Aside from that the ‘sureshot’ waistband pants are super versatile. Today Jalan and I went a bit relaxed/ethnic with these but I can definitely see myself wearing them in a weird/ avant-garde style. I really enjoyed shooting this and hope you like it as much as we do. Have a great day, unlike us, we have to go to english class and listen to our teacher explain why we should indent! lol, peace!
