s/o to the black girls who wear bindis, henna, headpieces, and Arabic name necklaces but scream cultural appropriation when a white girl acts up

you ain’t exempt

errr, Africa has all of that. So no, sit down.

I’m dying.

Its an overbroad statement when you make statements so general they lose their meaning.
But even if were going to limit this to idk north ameican black women excluding the bindi i still dont think this is a black and white issue. For ex.
muslims all over the world use names that are arabic in origin muslims in west africa arent and werent an exception and since a third of those enslaved were muslim arabic names among african americans isnt a new thing eveb if it isnt the norm. So using these kinds of sweeping statements isnt effective are useful imo.

…And we have henna, headpieces etc. like this is what happens when the media and people homogenise a whole religion to just one region of the world, like the fuck, black african muslims exist.
