  3. You know I do try to use this thread for what it’s actually for sometimes…..So…here I go again with another eyebrow raising topic.

    I want to preface this by saying that I read about this “trend” happening in Japan a while ago, but I hadn’t mentioned it here yet. Today’s the day. SMILES. Please read the article at the link below and then chime in with your thoughts (if you choose to).

    As a person of color, I’m not offended by this “trend” I’m more so amused bordering on concerned.

    As I said on Facebook, I want to tell these young people so bad that “being black” baby boys and baby girls may be something you see as trendy and hip, However, it’s really who/what some of us Actually Are. If you want to embrace “blackness” truly, then embrace it in ALL of its forms…..not just hip-hop. We are are a culture that’s rich and deep on so many levels in so many aspects. I know that may be a little deep for some to grasp, but this is what it means on the real. Then after you’ve seen what it means to be black up close and personal (in all of its forms), ask yourself again young person, do you TRULY want to be black? Cause I could tell you what it’s really like if you just really want to know. Got L-O-T-S a stories. Lol.
