Or maybe white supremacy is the problem and euro-centric beauty standards have been forced on black women for centuries?
you realize there are other countries in Africa than Egypt right? not everyone descended from Egyptian royalty
You don’t get to degrade black women while passing up and ignoring the fact that great black women in history were strategically erased like it’s our faults we don’t know.
And pointing to egyptian queens, I get it, I used to do it. I understand why you are doing it but really there are millions of outstanding black women in history that are there that YOU don’t know about either.
so erm, instead of coming for us, how about you read a book. You are a part of the problem.
Who’s this stupid bitch defending her ignorance? She prolly has a Marilyn Monroe tattoo
Hey there. You make two assumptions. One that I’m ignorant about black history/culture. I’ll admit for years I was. Like you all I thought that black women’s greatness in history was comprised of was Egyptians greats, Harriet Tubman, and the few acceptable black women that we are permitted to learn about in the US ED system.
The thing is, and I’ll continue to say it, if you actually read what I posted before you’ll see again that there has been a great effort put in to conceal what happened in black history after slavery and civil rights.
I get why black folks covet Egyptians. I really do. For a lot of us it was the first time we saw ourselves outfitted in history in something besides chains. Our parents and grand parents, different 90’s hip hop groups, and the little that we learned via pan african community events would teach us that we came from kings and queens.
And while it’s possible that some of us did, by focusing soley on Egyptians we miss out., ignore, and erase every other country/society within the continent of Africa.
So back to the picture…the comparison doesn’t’ make sense. You called me dumb yet you missed out the fact that if Ankh nation were trying to come for black women for being ignorant about our culture a better comparison would be Dorthy Dandridge, Ella Fitzgerald, Pearl Bailey, Ethel Waters, Ruby Dee, Hazel Scott, Eartha Kit, Dihanne Carroll, Beah Richards, oh and of course Maya Angelou.
I’m not going to call you dumb though. You didn’t know about most of them for the same reason that the OP made this just horrible comparison in the attempt to shame black women: Ignorance.
But you’ve got a list of names to research now. I suggest you get into them, especially considering it’s more likely you are related to one of them than Cleopatra.
how are you going to pretend to be here for black women while calling one a stupid bitch? weak
I’m not sure why you’re even comparing the two but besides that…women can like whomever they want and they’re not the problem.
