Black is bold. Black is beautiful. Black is beauty.
Often times, Blackness is not depicted as a symbol of beauty in the media. Instead, the media portrays Black people as ugly, dirty, and incompetent. We, Blacks, often times perpetuate these negative stereotypes by internalizing these messages. Mainstream has illustrated such a beautiful and powerful race as ugly and inferior out of fear and intimidation. Thus, these illustrations are derived from pure ignorance. You have heard the saying, "people fear what they don't know." It breaks my heart to see how easily we, as Blacks, fall into the traps of the mainstream worldviews. Therefore, at times, I will post photos of Black beauties (males and females) in a hopes to redefine the standard of beauty- Blackness!!! I therefore ask that you view these pictures from a different framework, knowing the meaning and purpose of this blog. With this aim in mind, I hope that as you continue to follow and support my blog, that you will see growth and progress in achieving such measure.
