THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT!
black ballerina excellence
So gorgeous and elegant
Why is this important? i see a girl doing ballet, stop outlining difference, its important we just admire the skills, and afore mentioned ellegance
First of all shut the fuck up and have several seats
and heres why in Michaela’s own words what she had to go through beig BLACK and still goes through
When she was around 8 and rehearsing for The Nutcracker, just a few days before the performance she was told, “I’m sorry, you can’t do it. America’s not ready for a black girl ballerina.”
For Michaela, “to say this to an 8-year-old is just devastating. It was terrible.”
When she was 9, a teacher told her mother: “I don’t like to put money into black dancers because they grow up and end up having big boobs and big hips.”
The dancer looked down at her petite figure and protested, “I don’t have boobs. I don’t get it.”
Instead of getting her down, “It makes me more determined,” she said. “Because I’ve been through so much, I know now that I can make it and I can help other kids who have been in really bad situations realize that they can make it too.”
This is why it is important, for little Black girls to see a black ballerina made it despite being discriminated against because of her skin color!!!
Before she came to live in New Jersey, Michaela faced discrimination in Sierra Leone for her skin, as well - because of her vitiligo, she was often called ‘devil child’. I thought it was a pity that this photo set didn’t any have any close ups of Michaela considering just how stunning she truly is! It is hard to imagine her being considered anything less than an angel! She looks as if she is constantly bathed in golden light, or like the brilliance of her soul refuses to be anything less than spectacularly shining - like it refuses to go unnoticed.
Michaela is an incredibly beautiful human being inside and out and I hope she goes on to become an inspiration and a role model to so many young people who can connect with her struggle to just shine as she was meant to… Young girls, and young Black girls especially, need this kind of positive representation!!

I dearly wish that people would view their bodies as they view flowers…
Skin patches? Birthmarks?
Scars? Stretch marks?
Freckles? Moles? Acne scars?
Missing a few pieces?

my roommate and I met him by accident at a local thrift store in the late fall and we’ve been friends ever since. we all go to lunch at once a week, and he always has the best stories. he’s an incredible person; he’s ninety-four and is extremely open-minded and cheerful and full of life and even still travels freely on his own. “don’t tell anyone, but for my ninety-fifth birthday I’m going to canada!”
this post means so much to me and i have no idea why
you told the entire Internet how could you betray herb like this
