I felt loved and you could see it through the windows to my soul.

This is my crown.

I trust that your windows show me truth. You don’t have to say anything with your mouth.

Michelle replied that the dangers of the Presidency were not novel. “I don’t lose sleep about it,” she said. “Because the realities are, as a black man, you know, Barack can get shot going to the gas station”—certainly the first time that this particular demographic truth has been enlisted as a reason to be optimistic about a black man’s prospects.

Barack Obama’s Safety

Michelle know.

#what a heart-breaking reality we live in

She 100% right.

This level of bluntness from the white house is kind of unprecedented.I guess the Obamas are tired, too.

What’s difficult to digest is this “praise” of all things black - from cornrows and large booties to acrylic nails, door-knocker earrings, and tribal fabrics - only becomes “chic,” “trendy,” and “epic” when worn by white women. When these same cultural markers are on black women, they are “ghetto,” “urban,” and “ratchet” - meaning, unpretty.
"It’s offensive," said Doreen E. Loury, director of Pan-African studies at Arcadia University. "The natural beauty of black women that has been historically demonized and classified as unattractive, is now the runway’s hottest new swag. And it’s not even being celebrated on black bodies."

and words like “ghetto”, “rachet”, and “thug” take on more “funny”, positive meanings when applied to white people. A white thug is being funny/ironic, while a black thug gets shot by police.

Whipped Green Tea & Coconut Oil Moisturizer (Light)

Having scraped out every last bit of coconut oil, it was time to whip up a replacement. A gallon-sized Costco tub is better for hand access but not so much for a tiny bathroom. Which brings us to a perfectly good invention: green lotion. Something that’s totally awesome for your skin.

You might remember green-tea infused oil from this SPF lip balm. I love this stuff. You get the benefits of coconut oil and green tea all in one. Coconut oil hydrates without clogging pores, and green tea can actually reverse sun damage. Whipping it makes a nice frothy texture that’s easier to apply and feels less greasy (if that bothers you). And did I mention that it’s green? No it won’t turn your skin green, but it does make me smile every time I see it.
