Mind Of A Mofo

Adina Shianne - 17 - LONDON - Profesional procrastinator

Apparently, women of color were wearing their hair in such fabulous ways, adding jewels and feathers to their high hairdos and walking around with such beauty and pride that it was obscuring their status. This was very threatening to the social stability (read: white population) of the area at the time. The law was meant to distinguish women of color from their white counterparts and to minimize their beauty.

» I love this special. I can watch it over and over again. Watching beautiful powerful black women celebrate and honor one another was so … I cannot even describe my feelings of pride and self-worth witnessing that. The Church Sunday bit was one of the most electrifying things I’ve seen on TV. It reminded me so much of Sundays at my church when I was a little girl.

Jesus sat down and ate with sinners, prostitutes and tax-collectors, did he not?

Doesn’t mean he approved of what they were doing, but it also didn’t keep Him from loving them.
