Misty Copeland is Named First Black Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre

Misty Copeland is truly a Black girl who rocks! She is now the first Black principal dancer ballerina at American Ballet Theatre in the company’s 75-year history.

I follow her on Instagram and I just love her story on how she was told she didn’t necessarily have a dancer’s body. Now look at her! She is proof that you can accomplish your dream if you work hard and don’t give up. She is truly giving girls hope all across the world.

Filmmaker Bree Newsome Takes Down Confederate Flag

Bree-Newsome-arrest

The old saying, “If you want something done, do it yourself,” is exactly what Bree Newsome did. This Black female filmmaker climbed up the pole at the South Carolina State Capitol and took it down herself. Her peaceful approach inspired me and to be honest, it was pretty heroic. Now, this is woman our daughters can be proud to see on the pole. The video below is not only moving, but courageous. What are your thoughts? Leave a comment below.

Same-Sex Marriage is Now Legal in the U.S.

Well, today is the day that many have been waiting for. It is truly a historic day in our nation. The Supreme Court ruled that same-sex marriage is now legal in all 50 states. This decision sent the Internet in a frenzy. As I expected, many feel that this ruling is a huge win and a good step in the right direction toward equality for all.

On the other hand, some people feel that this goes against Christian beliefs, which our country was built upon. However, even some Christians have expressed having mixed feelings. No matter where you fall on the equal rights spectrum, you must admit that America is evolving…the question is, where are we headed? Leave your thoughts below.

Zara Accused of Discriminating Against Black Shoppers

Well, well, well…another popular clothing store is being accused of racially discriminating against Black customers. Reports have been filled stating that Zara discriminates against Black shopper by targeting them as potential theft risks.

Zara is not the first clothing company to be in the hot seat for such behavior and I’m sure they won’t be the last. Will these accusations stop Black customers from patronizing Zara? I wonder if the love for wearing these fashion labels are worth the other labels that are being placed on Black shoppers.
