#reposting what I posted on @bundressed because I AM TIRED!
I woke up this morning to deal with the self entitled bullshit that I would ordinarily have dismissed, covered up or tried to empathise with but I’m done! I’m so tired of pussy footing around fragile privileged egos! And maybe I’ll be shooting myself in the foot and posting on my business page, instead of my personal page but I’m at the point where I don’t need your ‘likes’ to feel worthy of my existence as a #blackbusiness
I am not here to make you justify why you all of a sudden ‘care’. Why didn’t you care in the first place, on just a human level? That would have been a good place to start, because that’s how i start!
It is not my place to educate you about another people’s suffering.... that position can only be held from a place of privilege . Why did it have to take the brutal murder of #georgefloyd at the hands of a white policeman splattered over social media and the consequent collective pain and uprising of our people, for people
to ‘care enough to try to learn!’ That brutality on a physical and mental level happens every day in every country to black people! I’m done with half assed good intentions... All we are asking now is that white people put aside their own sensitivities and really feel why we are tired. It’s raw for every black person ... and why is that ?
We have had enough and quite frankly, I do not have to do anything to help white people understand my pain when the information is there at your fingers tips. Your are essentially asking the brutalised where it hurts and why does it hurt instead of saying we are sorry for causing the fucking hurt in the first place. Be sensitive please! Like I said I am done! I don’t need anymore fuckery on my page... unfollow me if your want to please and thank you!
For those who are still here and genuinely wanting to support a #femaleblackownedbusiness ... here is a beautiful pic from my shoot in Rio in 2015 with stunning model Karina. Unfortunately we’ve sold out of that set by now #dirtyprettythings but head over to my link and check out other amazing small brands. grateful for your love & support 🖤#blacklivesmatter #blackownedbusiness
