ON FAILING AT COPYING WHAT WE WORSHIP




Feeling Rebloggy
"I also understand that most people are not upset when [Li'l] Kim and people like her take drastic steps to look like the light. bright beauty queens we worship at the expense of dark-skinned black women, but that, in all of their efforts to look exactly as we wish them too look, that they failed.
Shave off the sides of your nose, but not so much that you look unnatural.


Lighten your skin, but avoid all of the harmful side effects of chemical skin lightening and make sure you get a Rihanna skin tone, because if you fuck up and end up with the Vybz Kartel we’ll never let you live it down.



Add mountains of weave, but only if it mimics the hair of a mixed race woman, not a eastern European one because that’s going ‘too far.’


Add and subtract body parts, but don’t be too drastic so that we might be able to pretend it’s natural.

Wouldn’t want to be greedy in your conformity to white supremacist beauty standards, right?


We are more upset with the limits of modern plastic surgery procedures than anything else."

Sooo,
if Lil Kim had been born in 1984 instead of 1974
putting her at 18 years of age
in 1992 when plastic surgery, weaves, and lace wigs were becoming 
more and more advanced, 
she'd be closer to the acceptable zone?
