“I wanted to present myself to the world without a filter. And that meant being honest about my own insecurities, my own shortcomings and my own mistakes. Which I found surprisingly easy because that’s just part of who I am. I’m an openly flawed human. So, in accepting this honour, it is important for me to acknowledge all of the fans and young people who I celebrate my successes with — they’ve given me the power to be honest about my personal experience with body dysmorphia, therapy, online bullying and mental health issues. It quickly came to my attention that so few influencers were actually willing to talk about their flaws, and that’s an idea that I wanted to challenge. And that’s when I realised how important it was to say authentically myself. Imperfect but still powerful.”
A lot of black people have some internalized anti blackness going on and…its sad. Literally none of these kids hair looks brushed. However, people are only having a problem with the girl who has a 4C hair texture. Where is the outrage for the rest of the children? Or are they allowed to have a messy after school look bc their textures are acceptable? Everybody else’s hair is just as messy as hers. Y'all just don’t like 4C hair in its natural form. Y'all dont like it when its not slicked back, or brushed, or frizzy or all of the other things that 4C hair is sometimes. If you have this mentality and you yourself have the same hair texture???? I hate to break it to you, but you have some issues with your texture that you want to push onto this girl. Yall are outraged bc a child dare have natural hair without a crap ton of products? Bc yall dont like the fact that this is what natural hair looks like on a child after they’ve been playing all day? Yall can hate your hair all you want, but her hair is fine. H&M is right. Let kids be kids.
anyways FUCK h&m for promoting “”sustainable and conscious”” clothing when they still participate in slave labour. the % of recycled material in those clothes is less than 1%.
you can read the full sustainability report here. keep in mind their fair wage and child labour projects are listed as “on track” with no clarification of what exactly they’ve done or are continuing to do-and they’re still sitting on $25 billion of potential clothing waste from factories alone.
it should go without saying: don’t give them your old clothes for that 15% off voucher. donate them to a local charity (not the salvation army).
