Colour Me Mine

Post by Thandie.

There’s definitely a mini revolution going on when it comes to colour.

And it’s challenging what we rate as so-called ‘beautiful v ugly’. Of course, there has never been a way of rating these definitions, they’re subjective. There’s no wrong or right when it comes to being anything at all. But when it comes to ethnic oppression there IS a right and wrong; which is why definitions in our value system need to be all-embracing.

I feel that’s why colours in general are being appreciated in a whole new way. Take nail colour – greens, blues, browns, greys – colours that may have once been called dreary are the choice for hip people from NY to Lagos. No longer are we sporting red and pink to beckon the attention of other cutiepies – now we’re making statements with colours as a way of communicating our individuality, wit and stance. Statement rather than Acquiescence.

Or, you just really like green, brown, black and like the way it looks with your outfit!

Either way, we’re doing more of what we want, and what we WANT is changing – broadening, evolving, progressing. And we’re more respectful of the wants of others, more tolerant. We have to be, we’re a global village now. No matter how thick and tall Trump wants to build his wall.

Wear what you want. Show the world who YOU are.

Respect is the new Sexy.
