I just had to share this pic that I saw on Facebook yesterday and posted on my page. This picture just makes my heart swell with joy for two reasons. First,
I always love seeing a little girl who adores her daddy and a daddy who
adores his little girl.
But second … and this is what inspired the title of this post … look
at Sasha’s hair. Which one of us doesn’t have a similar pic of us
playing at some time, some place, hair everywhere … and having the time
of our lives? To see this captured moment … the daughter of the President of the United States of America,
not perfectly coiffed, but looking just like “every little black girl
USA,” shoot, “every little black girl” period … no facades … no pretense
… no dolled up, whitewashed version of a black family that is “safe”
for public viewing … feels like a really existential moment in time. I
feel it in my bones. I feel it in my soul. There’s about to be a paradigm shift mannnnn!!! We are here, we are black, we are women and we are worthy just the way we are!!
That is all!
