Unless you have been under a rock ,you will have notice the uproar from Loreal Transgender Model Munroe Bergdorf putting white supremacy on blast and the backlash from what she wrote on her facebook page .In relation to how she feel racism aka white supremacy effects people of colour worldwide.
I have made a video on my thoughts but I missed I few points ,I would like to address this in this blog post.
I feel like her comment which were ” Honestly I dont have the energy to talk about the racial violence of white people .Yes All white people ”
Is nothing compare to Cheryl Cole being employed by Loreal as diversity model even though she was convicted for aggravated assault and accussed of racially aggravated assault.This is a great crime to me then a few words written by a traumatized person of colour like Munroe Bergdorf after seeing white supremacist kill people for trying to get rid of white supremacy.It seems like white mainstream society doesnt want to know about people of colours pain, just about white people pain.
It is amazing the amount of white people making video’s about Munroe comments but not calling out Loreal double standards on racism.
What I have learnt from the experinece of Munroe ,is dont bite then hands that feeds you, unless your are prepared to be fired for speaking up against injustice.
And that Loreal is still a white supremacy beauty company that is happy to employ racists and thugs like Cheryl Cole if they promoting white supremacy but not brown skin people who complain about the effect of white supremacy on people of colour.
I havent been a fan of Loreal for a long time, they are forever been accussed of racism aka white supremacy from bleaching Beyonce in beauty ads to not emloying people of colour .The list of there crimes is endless and they have lost court cases due to there racism.
You’re worth it – if white. L’Oréal guilty of racism
I feel like this is one global white beauty company that doesnt need my money .I feel like they are part of the problem not the solution and dont care about the injustice of white supremacy as long as they keep making money.
I feel like Munroe ever though I dont agreed that all white people are racist is proving just how much white supremacy runs the world and how much many white people arent ready to give up there white prilvege.Many of them are part of the problem not the solution .And dont really care ,what effect it has on people of colour or how angry it makes people of colour .
I feel like Munroe has taught me to press on with my dreams of starting my own beauty brand in the future .And to keep vlogging and blogging as my story is important as a women of colour.I think the only way to rid the world of white supremacy ,is for us people of colour .To tell our stories and not wait on white people to get rid of white supreamacy .
I also think Munroe is having the last laugh ,as she now been offered another makeup brand contract with illamasqua ,which accepts her just as she is and doesnt expect her to keep silence over white privllage and racism.
Well done to illamasqua for standing up to injustice and racism.
