My Black Has Always Been Beautiful

tumblr_mw1pulax2T1rt05vro1_1280I don’t know about you, but I use my social apps to learn and educate. There are so many outlets on the internet, but so little people use it to their advantage. Here’s my attempt to stimulate someone’s mind. Today is Dec. 9, 2013 and I want you all to know that despite all stereotypes, negativity, racism, hate, phobias, neglect… MY BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.

I browsed my social media today & there was a few alarms that went off in my head for a few reasons. There was a video posted where young black children were placed in front of two dolls, one black & one white, and asked a few questions about them.
