India.Arie Pens Open Letter About Blue Ivy's Hair
Blue Ivy's hair has been the talk of social media and talk shows since her cute coils were first photographed. More recently, with enactment of a petition to have Beyonce and Jay Z comb her hair, celebs and bloggers alike have been offering their two cents on what's wrong or right about little Carter's hair. Well, Madame I-am-not-my-hair has had enough of all the buzz over Blue Ivy's hair, and penned an open letter telling everyone to find some better business to concern themselves with, preferably some that involves becoming a better person. Read the full statement below.
"Why does anyone get the idea that its ok to make fun of a child? In public no less? This celebrity culture that hypnotizes people into thinking a person is LITERALLY NOT REAL because you see them on television is a spell the watcher HIM or HER SELF MUST BREAK. Blue Ivy — is a CHILD. And ANYONE thinking to themselves right now: “But she was born with a silver spoon in her mouth so what does it matter what I say” — Denying ANY PERSON their humanity, is a GAME we should ALL stop playing. WHY? Because it’s the kind of PERSON YOU WANT TO BE. Why NOT be a person who is loving towards human kind as a whole AND people as individuals? WHY NOT be a person protects the hearts of children? I think! all these people making negative comments would feel the SAME WAY if Blue Ivy’s hair were TOO DONE. If she had a relaxer, of Hair pulled too tight at the edges. Being gentle with a child’s hair is simply appropriate – this goes the same for ALL children. Come ya’ll Lol We're ARE better than this."
