xodvf when did you learn to call the land of your birth a third world? why did they teach you to disrespect home? #chlorophyll #melanin #connection #bloodoflife #morealikethanyouknow #afrika #thetropics #botanicals #plants #la #koreatown #palmtrees #greenery #vsco #rp #xodvf 7d

xodvf i love the world of #vintage + #antiques bc it allows one to interface w| #history. as it has been told. and as it truly was. allowing you to imagine the experiences + ideologies + perceptions + lives of those who existed during those eras. #today, i sat under this piece, a 1930's permanent wave machine designed by karl nessler to create permanent #curls on naturally straight #europeanhair. so, while they told|tell you that your #9ether #hair is unfavorable, they went through the extremes of combining a #chemical alkali w| a thermal heat process to achieve what #universe gave you naturally. later, a process known as the relaxer was created to straighten your hair since they could not permanently curl their hair. #perspective #lesson #whatisalteredwillalwaysreturntoitsnaturalstate #nature #alwayswins #goesbothways #knowthyself #naturalhair #africanhair #assaultsagainstmymelanin #xoDVF #staychocolated @africangirllonghair #changingparadigmsandshit #hairhistory 2w

xodvf during the pressurized years when she was in effect battled + labeled + trapped + capped - she started a relief fund in the name of sanity. she collected rare humor + kind words + large-breasted hugs + a variety of pats on the back. above all, she collected the wisdom to know it would eventually pass. #thedaymylipslosetheirguard #quote #heard #universeisonyourside #youtube.com/xoDVF #vlog 12.21.14 #watchthisspace #changingparadigmsandshit #selfie #vsco #xodvf #newness #sooncome #givthx 2w

xodvf bc i'm only suppose to talk about #naturalhair + #lipstick + #wiwt. oh...ok! #gtfoh
a quick response to the "(b)lack" people who can't seem to accept their greatness and serve as defense attorneys for white supremacy. i overstand, it's a challenge being aware when you're sipping that purple high fructose corn syrup ladened colonial juice. #gmoshit #fake #bs
black awareness + black power + black consciousness is anti-white supremacy, NOT anti-white people. know the difference. sharing the truth of #afrikan history + the metaphysics of #melanin + #9ether #africanhair does not inform hatred. and anyone who tells you it does, benefits from your ignorance. know this.
i welcome those who are open to learning, umi appaulds you. be well + journey soulfully + expand + lively up yourselves. #universeisonyourside. #assaultsagainstmymelanin #xoDVF #youtube.com/xoDVF #knowthyself

and we know that....if they can't humble you with the bible, they crumble you with the gun. | weaponry
nah stress up brethren...another world is not only possible, she is on her way. on a quiet day, i can hear her breathing. | arundhati roy, #read #wartalk #universeisonyourside
until the shift....protect. revolt. stand firm. spiritual warfare. arise oshun. arise ogun. keep your peace talks. war. proceed without fear. war.
