Flawesome Life & Style

pretty-period:

"I’m glad that Shonda Rhimes saw me and said “Why not?” That’s what makes her a visionary. That’s what makes her iconic. I think that beauty is subjective. I’ve heard that statement [less classically beautiful] my entire life. Being a dark-skinned black woman, you heard it from the womb. And “classically not beautiful” is a fancy term for saying ugly. And denouncing you. And erasing you. Now … it worked when I was younger. It no longer works for me now. It’s about teaching a culture how to treat you. Because at the end of the day, you define you."

PERIOD!

Dope #Art Print sent to me from @artwhino Gallery. I LOVE IT! It’s so cool. Kinda makes me think of how it must feel to be in a jam & still fabulous. Thanks so much! ♡
