Hello my Beautiful Fashionistas,
I hope you are all doing great,
2020 has been a very emotional and overwhelming year so far and after dealing with the Covid 19 pandemic for the past 3 months, the World is going through another Big Moment and no matter how unconfortable some people might feel about this topic, Racism and racial profiling have always existed and it is time for a Real Change.
One thing I love about blogging is that not only we get to share what we love but we also get to express how we feel. I truly believe that being authentic with our feelings is essential in this superficial World.
Finding the right words can be difficult, especially if you are a White person and I totally get it,
but if you care about others, you cannot stay silence.
We all have a unique voice and it is our responsability to make it count.
So today I would like us to get a little personal here, let’s talk real talk my friends !
As a Black woman and a Black entrepreneur I have experienced racism many time in my life but I never thought I needed to talk about it, because it was just the way things were and to be completely honest with you, the last thing I wanted was pity or empathy from others but this does not mean I was not deeply hurt every time it happened.
If you have not been physically attacked, don’t complain because it is not worth it and you are better than that.
This is how my parents raised me and I know it was for my own good.
I think We, People of colour, just learned to work twice harder to succeed and to do our best to stay away from trouble.
Today I think it was not necessary the best way and as a Mother, I pray for a better future for my child and every decision, every action I take is to make this possible.
Because after all, Being Black is all I have always been and will always be.
To all my non-Black friends out here who have been speaking loudly against racism for the past days, I see you, I respect you and I Thank you for your support. Continue to educate yourself, to get involved and to support diversity in the blogging World.
There is still so much work to be done and I sincerely hope that when BLACK LIVES MATTER will no more be trendy, when we will all get back to regular contents, YOU will still care because this is not a sprint, it is a marathon.
For those of you who don’t follow me on Instagram and would like to, I would be more than happy to connect with you :
