I’ve been meaning to do a post on this two months ago, but didn’t get around to it until now. I just found this out late last year and its also old news (from October 2013), I know very old, LOL! But I found it interesting enough to discuss. Well P. Diddy posted this picture below on his Instagram account which started some controversy:
As you can see a black woman is standing tall in the middle with white women bowing down to her in a circle. P. Diddy captioned the photo, “As it should be!!!!!!” #BlackIsBeautiful” Of course the Batman signals went off some white people hated it (what’s new), some Black people loved it, and a mix of others didn’t know what to make of it. Read more here. Some people say this photo represents white women just simply appreciating the black woman whereas others say that the white women were in worship of the black woman. Those of us who know our history know that white people did in fact at one time worshiped black gods and goddesses, so I would say its the latter.
I have to say that I was taken aback myself, not because of the photo, but WHO posted it. Those of us who pay attention to what is being revealed (and what we see and hear daily) about what goes on behind the scenes in the entertainment industry know that there seems to be an unspoken rule that a Black Man in Hollyweird CANNOT show any type of love, praise, or appreciation toward the Black Woman. In addition, P. Diddy is known not to cast ANY Black Women of ANY complexion within his clothing line or other product ads, which is why I have been given him the side eye for years. Did P. Diddy all of a sudden come into some consciousness??? Whadaya Think?
An image of a brown Barbie doll has surfaced on the Internet, causing people to question whether or not it is supposed to be the next African-American Barbie. The doll is sporting blonde hair, gold chains, cleavage, and two bags that are strikingly similar to the Louis Vuitton monogram multi-color collection.
Many African-Americans find the doll’s appearance offensive, stating that it does not exude the true beauty of African-American women. The truth is, though, the doll strongly resembles imagery of African-American women that is seen in some of the most famous celebrities (e.g. Beyoncé, Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, etc.). The only difference I see between Beyoncé, for example, and the doll is that the doll’s skin color is darker than Beyoncé’s. If we want to change the imagery of the African-American woman, we have to start exalting celebrities and other prominent figures in the Black Community that represent the imagery that…
The first US airline flight staffed by an all African-American female flight crew comprised of Captain Rachelle Jones, first officer Stephanie Grant and flight attendants Diana Galloway and Robin Rogers.
Some thought this was a stunt and some even refused to board the plane, because of an all-African American female crew.
“Some even refused to board the plane”
This is fucking glorious. Take me somewhere, queens!
This is a continuation of my previous post entitled The Original Black Woman: The Original and TRUE Standard of Beauty. The post discussed from a scholarly perspective the Original Black Woman as creatress of the world’s standards and trends of physical beauty, the first model of the feminine physique, the worship of the Black Woman as a living goddess, and the ancient world’s knowledge of these facts and the very high regard the ancients had for the Original Black Woman. This post, part 2 is my two cents on the subject.
Many of you may ask, “Well what the hell happened?” The answer is and should be very obvious to everyone by now…. the SINGLE GREATEST MOST DESTRUCTIVE mind fuck in history that is White Supremacy (racism). The pictures below are the beautiful singer, actress, and model Grace Jones. She has a very beautifully structured face and physique, but according to Euro Beauty Standards she is not beautiful. For years, both Knee-grows and whites have described this woman as “black and ugly” and “resembling a man” (Now I was guilty of this too until I began the process of un-whitewashing my mind and began to really see the TRUE beauty of myself and the Black Woman Collective).
Black Women in general are told we are “ugly,” “undesirable,” and “worthless” when compared to light, biracial, white, and non-white, non-black women, but it is the dark-skinned Black Woman who is regarded (according to racist euro beauty standards) to be the “ugliest” of all. The Black Community’s current standard of beauty is a light-skinned black and/or biracial woman with straight or curly “good hair.” A very far cry from Black Beauty standards of the ancients. Many dark-skin Black Women/Girls report being told they look like Grace Jones; not as a compliment, but as an insult. In the ancient world, Mrs. Jones would be held in very,very,very high regard and I strongly believe that this would be true today if it wasn’t for the White supremacist programming that has so infected the minds of Africans and others on a global scale. Yes, I know that all of this is hard for you all to believe sistas because for sooooo very long we have been told that we are “inferior,” but the Black Woman IS the original standard of beauty (and still is) and it is very well documented.
The dark-skinned Black Woman IS the mother of the Black race and the human race in general. She is the reason why ALL of us are alive, yet she is the most disrespected woman and person on the planet. We can pretty much say the dark skin black woman can bring us in this world and take us all out, lol! I love ALL my Original Black Women, whether they be light, dark, or in between and we ARE the most beautiful women on the planet, but I must be honest. When it comes to Black beauty, the dark-skinned black woman is at the paramount and the rest of us fall in line behind her. Some may get mad, but hey, that’s how it was and it’s how it still is. In ancient times, the blacker the woman the more she was held in high regard, therefore the darkest black women were held in the highest regard. And that’s right, y’all best believe that many people (on a subconscious level) still know this to be true today, but they ain’t gonna admit it, especially the white supremacist cause they have way too much to loose. Don’t let NOBODY fool y’all sistas, lol!
The false beauty standards in the Black Community today are based on false euro ideals of beauty that are rooted in white supremacy (racism) (and it’s byproduct colorism), envy, and hatred. We have been fooled for hundreds of years into believing that our beautiful melenated skin and unique hair textures are “ugly” and “shameful”. Black Women it’s time to reverse the brainwashing and embrace our beauty and celebrate it! I feel that many of us are taking the blinders off and are doing just that. As the system of White Supremacy (racism) looses its foothold on the minds and hearts of the world’s people, the Original Black Woman (especially the dark-skinned black woman) will be upheld, recognized, and acknowledged as the ORIGINAL and TRUE Standard of Beauty once again. Again, I leave you with the words of the late great Pan-African scholar, Dr. Yosef ben Jochannen (a.k.a. Dr. Ben) :
The Afrikan Woman is still the real standard of beauty in the world today.
