lexxspeaks #CulturalAppropriation series, comin at ya.
Brown women collectively refers to #WoC or #WomenOfColor, non white women in this post. Like I keep mentioning, white people aren't the only ones capable of appropriation, and I've addressed this already, but, in the West, they're the only group with the power to turn other cultures into commodities/fashion (just look at what has happened to Black American culture). People of color do not appropriate from whites in the West. We have assimilated. Please look up the difference. I have SEVERAL posts explaining this.
I'm ending my CA discussion for right now. If you would like more information, please research peer reviewed articles (you can go to Google Scholar to find them. Type in "Cultural appropriation.") or even search Google. You can also look up the wonderful, beautiful, and highly intelligent #AmandlaStenberg (Rue from the Hunger Games) and follow her on IG. She has amazing videos on YouTube explaining what CA is and why it's harmful and goes beyond basic stereotypes. Also look up Franchesca Leigh #ChescaLeigh on IG and YouTube. She now has an MTV series explaining #Racism #Privilege, #Appropriation and more. #WhitePrivilege #CultureVultures

natural_inclination This screen from @chescaleigh latest MTV Decoded video rocked me to my core. Understand the counternarrative she has crafted. It's genius! The backlash she is receiving really speaks to the power of media as public pedagogy. I challenge you to watch the video critically and consciously because these counternarrative acts are important within this culture! http://youtu.be/T-GIveL8tEw #franchescaramsey #chescaleigh #chescalocs #mtvdecoded #ferguson #baltimore #mikebrown #freddiegray #policebrutality #truthinjest #teamnatural #naturalhair #naturalhairdaily #naturalhaircommunity #racism #blackgirlsrock #candid #racialdisparity 2mon

natural_inclination I loved Franchesca's "Sh*t White Girls Say to Black Girls," but when I saw her Huffpost, "From Meme to Social Commentary," I knew she was special. She told my story and the story of so many others. I'm thankful for her wit and intelligence. Her new project is brilliant! http://m.huffpost.com/us/entry/7498150?ncid=fcbklnkushpmg00000047 #geekmode #franchescaramsey #mtvdecoded #racializeddiscourse #teamnatural #naturalhaircommunity #blackgirlsrock #blackwomenrock #chescaleigh #truth 2mon

natural_inclination Yaaassss! @chescaleigh won’t quit! I’m so excited about this series! Racialized discourse meets public pedagogy and pop culture! This is what my research is all about! #geekmode #chescaleigh #franchescaramsey #mtvdecoded #decoded #racializeddiscourse #teamnatural #naturalhair #naturalhaircommunity #naturalhairdaily #melanin #truth #blackgirlsrock #blackwomenrock #racism 2mon
