“I am tired of feeling the pressure to alter my own ideas of style, beauty, and art to fit into European standards and ideas. I am tired of seeing “1 black, 1 asian, and 1 spanish model” to represent all people of color. I am tired of my own people feeling like they have to change themselves in order to make money. i’m tired of being made to feel like everything black is bad. I am tired of complaining about it and tired of hearing models, stylist, muas, photographers, hair artist, and other creatives complain about the way things are and no one is stepping up to do anything about it. sometimes you gotta be the change you wanna see.” ~ Phelora Elle via Tarrice Love
