Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion: 
White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

Do not ask your spirit to heal the body. Ask rather that the spirit teach you the right perception of the body.

I am reblogging this because when i posted this quite a few months back the guy I was with at the time and had been with for over 4 years made me feel incredibly guilty and ashamed of myself for doing so. In so many words he’d told me that my body was only for him to see and made me second guess sharing something I had felt so proud of in that moment. He had seen my insecurities destroy me in the past and to me, it’s a blessing i can love myself now without someone making me guess my art or aesthetic. It’s a beautiful feeling to feel comfortable in your skin. I am proud of myself.

I’m appalled that somebody would make you feel that way or act like they own you and your body. You belong to nobody. And you’re amazing.
