June afternoons 😴 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ idk if it’s the skincare or the self love, but I’ve been feeling so pretty in my bare face. I just put on mascara and earrings today & im like oOh. actually it must be quarantine 😅
Back with a new video on YT today sharing my thoughts on BLM & humanity’s current lesson that we’re being called to learn. Sending you healing energy 💫 Follow @shoplavendaire for more resources & action steps as we continue striving for progress
Muted & listening. I will not be posting my regular content from June 1-7 (on YT & IG) in an effort to #amplifymelanatedvoices ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is a time for us to listen, learn and seek to understand. A time to practice nonjudgment, empathy and compassion. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I will take up less space on social media in order to make space for those voices that matter right now. To learn more about this movement: @blackandembodied & @jessicawilson.msrd ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Please share accounts we should follow & listen to right now👇
BLACK LIVES MATTER. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It’s painful and infuriating to see the racism, inequality and injustice that exists in our society today. It’s disheartening to read story after story about black people losing their lives, struggling against a system that oppresses them. It’s completely unfair. And this pain goes so deep. I can’t imagine how exhausting it is to be a black person in America. I acknowledge the privilege I have as an Asian American woman, and I want to do what I can as an ally. To the Black community, I see you, I hear you and I’m standing with you. ✊✊🏿✊🏾✊🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Here are some posts I’ve shared on Stories/Twitter this week. Another thing I want to emphasize: FOCUS ON THE CAUSE. Don’t get distracted by the looting, destruction & narrative the media is creating. They want you to feel scared, out of control, angry & senseless. Anything that distracts from the movement & turns ppl against it. Yes, it’s sad that small businesses are being hurt, when they were already hurt by the pandemic. Yes, there are other forces at play (undercover cops, anarchists, people who are NOT protestors but are using this as an excuse to wreak havoc) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Stay focused & conscious. WE NEED TO UNITE & PUSH FOR POSITIVE CHANGE. I believe in the good in our community. I see so many of you caring & speaking up. Thank you 🙏🏼 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you haven’t already, here are some orgs you can support: • Black Visions Collective @blackvisionscollective • Reclaim the Block @reclaimtheblock • North Star Health Collective (northstarhealthcollective.org) • Black Lives Matter @blklivesmatter • Color of Change @colorofchange ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #blacklivesmatter #justiceforgeorgefloyd #antiracist
