[SWIPE]🎉 To the Young, Beautiful Black girl with 4C Hair modelling for H&M:
Nothing is wrong with your hair! Thank you for wearing it with so much pride and dignity. Please understand that as black people, our everything has been policed, demonised and ignored for centuries by white supremacy.
This is our hair without products and styling, we look just like you! You are beautiful with or without slick edges.
We must say however, that there has always been issues with black models/actresses etc. Not being treated equally and having to bring in their own foundations and do their own hair or be left with extremely damamged hair because the industry refuses to hire black stylists.
The context of this shoot was for kids to be shot with “after school hair” and this picture is so familiar!
Let’s not pass on to the next generation these conformist ideologies. Remember, a law only just passed for black people to wear their hair naturally ! It’s actually mad.
We are rebelling by simply being OURSELVES. We love you sis, shine bright 🥰🥰🌹🙌🏾
