You cannot let the media, the school, and the society that we live in raise our young Queens. It’s essential to build self-love into our children because the system is designed for us to hate ourselves. It’s not enough to just tell your child she’s beautiful. You have to SHOW her, TEACH her, and INSPIRE her to love herself. Her household should be a safe house and instrument to combat white supremacy and its constant promotion of European beauty standards. Everything starts at home, Black Parents need to be giving their child Dolls , books, and stories that reflect your childs image. Stop giving them White dolls and paraphernalia that help feed them the idea that they aren’t as beautiful. Yes it is that SERIOUS.
