fickle-indigochild asked: It clearly states in your sidebar that this blog is for "uplifting and encouraging dark skinned black girl" so maybe the people in your inbox are trolls starting trouble? They say the cold makes all the crazies stay inside with nothing but boredom to tend to lol.
Yeah I know -__-
I’m legitimately tired from all the trolling. I won’t even be answering anymore of those. I think I’m done for the night lol.
olablackenbeauty asked: Hi, Thank you so much for posting my pic, was wondering though, y did you go "awwwww" :) x
Because your afro! It’s gorgeous!!
unrivaledbeauty asked: Your blog is the GREATEST. Despite what anonymous are saying, I love how it's just about black women. It's upsetting how society views/treats black women & has made a lot of women uncomfortable with their dark tone. But your blog embraces it & shows just how beautiful black women truly are. Wine fine indeed :)

Anonymous asked: Did u hand make ur theme?
Actually no I purchased it, but I might as well have honestly! I did SOOO much html editing. Like you don’t even know! :0
I’m sure we’re all very aware that Colorism is an issue affecting several different cultures and communities—apart from the black community. Personally, I hate the concept of discriminating against anyone from any background because of their natural attributes. This blog is designed to empower dark-skinned black women of African descent. I actually am one, and that’s what I relate to.
For those that see this blog and conclude that black women should not be empowered and that another race should, you may be missing the point. I strongly suggest that those who would like to see a different demographic create their own blog dedicated to the topic of their choice. That’s the best way to make a difference :)
Stay empowered, xoxo
bile-glitter-storm asked: south asian here. im sorry you keep getting posts about how this blog doesnt have south asian women. this blog is primarily aimed for black girls, this space should be respected and not invaded. yes both black and south asian women face problems with their dark skin and the eurocentric white skin beauty ideal but our experiences from our communities are unique and different. black girls have it much harder than south asians tbh. keep running this amazing blog and poc solidarity always
YOU. YOUUUU. Are my favorite ask of the day.
Thank you. This is probably the most important concept that has been sent in today.
