"My name is not Annie. It’s Quvenzhané."
Quvenzhané Wallis (then age 9) correcting an AP Reporter who said she was “just going to call her Annie” instead of learning how to pronounce her name. Never forget.
"You are beautiful. Own it. Walk like your hips move mountains."
Black owned natural hair products/companies »
This is just a reminder that a lot of our natural hair products and lines are owned by white companies and they really don’t care about us, so buy black, it actually goes back into our community!
- African pride
- Soft& Beautiful Botanicals
- Care free curl
- Dark and lovely Au naturale
- Motions naturally you
- Dr. Miracle’s Curl Care
- Sof n’ Free Gro Healthy Nothing But
- ORS curls unleashed (Organic root stimulator)
- Pantene truly natural
- Naturally Silk Elements
There are so many more that can be added to each list. Bottom line, help black business. And an added bonus to helping our community out is a lot of the lines are more natural or Vegan.
More black owned natural hair additions, cus why not?
More non-black owned
Support black business!
Carol’s daughter is no longer black owned??
A lot of shit makes sense now.
"A white student may feel discomfort when it’s pointed out to him how he has benefited from structural racism, but to compare that discomfort to discrimination is a false equivalency. Hurt feelings hurt, but it is not oppression. But hurt feelings can be bad for business. And a lot of powerful people think colleges should act more like businesses. When they do, students act more like customers. And our likely customers might not be amicable to discussions about structural racism. If the customer is always right, then the majority share of customers is more right than the minority."
