“To perpetuate an idea that the most flattering picture of a black actress is one where her blackness is altered is straight up racist, and if you don’t see that, then you’re frankly part of the problem.” -Julia Sonenshein, The Gloss ... this is fucking bullshit
Very Rare image of Henry II (972-1024) King of Italy and Germany also Holy Roman Emperor during the time of the Ottonian Dynasty. From the Sacramentary of Henry II (1002 -1014). Undeniable proof of so called black presence throughout Europe.
but like this "all women are pretty" phrase trend confuses me bc it's so passive ? it's a passive attempt at creating ~*equality*~ when really these issues need to be centered on equity. yes, all women are beautiful. just like yes, all lives matter. but our priorities when decolonizing should not be set on focusing on this obvious notion but instead prioritizing those who don't conform to the eurocentric standards of beauty this phrase normally ignores, you feel?
