Apparently Kathy Griffin looks amazing rocking red lipstick. But black women can’t, because we’ll look silly.
And according to A$AP Rocky, the fact that we black girls might take offense to that makes us “too sensitive.”
Let’s just add that to the list of things that we’re “too much” of. Like angry. And ratchet.
But anyway, back to A$AP defending his comment about dark women and how they should never wear red lipstick.
“Black girls just, ah man, went crazy. They just took it how they took it…Black girls, you know how sensitive they are, but they our sisters man. It is what is man. I come from a black home, so I know how sensitive black women can be. Especially when you talking about they looks or something like that. You can’t say nothing about they glasses, they nails, none of that because then you’re a womanizer or you’re a racist.”
Maybe you’re right A$AP. Maybe I am just in my feelings.
So, let me just shut up and add that to the ongoing list of things that I can’t do, like…
Wear pink lipstick
Rock blonde hair
Shave my head…
Or, grow my hair naturally…God forbid a black girl have an afro and not a perm!
And of course, wear red lipstick
I got news for you, ladies. Rock on. We slay in whatever we wear. So this list…
