Say NO to the creamy crack!

Say NO to the creamy crack!

Sistas & Brothas, before you do THIS to your daughters pleaseee think twice! WHAT IS THE REASONING BEHIND THIS? ASK YOURSELF THAT QUESTION BEFORE YOU GO FOR THE “CREAMY CRACK” TO PUT IN YOUR CHILDS’ HAIR!!

REMEMBER….IS THIS THE STANDARD YOU WANT TO SET IN THEIR LIVES TO TELL THEM WHAT TRUE BEAUTY IS FOR AFRIKAN GIRLS AND WOMEN?? SINCE WHEN IS SELF MUTILATION BEAUTY? THINK!!!! about it…..

IF you ask me, True Beauty looks like….this!

WE must allow them to BE who they are! without imposing our internalized self hatred upon them. Don’t they deserve that much?

  1. Great post! And so very true!

  2. This is a serious issue, but I hear a lot of people limit this to preference when this effects our youth physically & mentally! If we say we love our children our actions should be proof of it! Very meaningful post.

    • NO doubt sista Akosua! This has nothing to do with preference, because they are not even giving their children a choice. Parents who insist on perming their childs’ hair with harmful and dangerous cancer-causing chemicals are not only advancing a family legacy of inter-generational self hatred, they are also beginning the journey to ill health and dis-ease. So this has nothing to do with preference and anyone who says that is lying to themself and denying the obvious. WE have alot of work to do, and Afrikan mothers especially Must learn to accept that their OWN standards of beauty should NOT be imposed on their child just because they are too young to make their own decisions. They have the right to refuse their hair being mechanically manipulated so that it will look like that of a yurugu female, because our daughters are NOT yurugu females!
