But in that coming day no weapon turned against you will succeed. You will silence every voice raised up to accuse you. These benefits are enjoyed by the servants of the LORD; their vindication will come from me. I, the LORD, have spoken! – Isaiah 54:17
Shopping While Being A Black Christian
Whew… This is a post I really kind of do not want to write because again… I am private. This is for my African American followers! So, as some of you know I am multi-cultural. My man made me take a DNA test because he did not believe I was fully black (he was right). I swore up and down I was all Black but apparently not. The test confirmed that I am Nigerian, Irish, British, Mayan, Argentine, Native American, Bolivian, and Peruvian among some other things.
Follow along as much as you can while I write this.
So I have natural hair (which is why he thought I was mixed because of my hair). My hair does this thing where it is like straight like white people but half-way thick like I am Black… Yeah. But anyways, I was praying and one day God begin to speak to me and he said “stop using the conditioner that you are using because it is racist”.
So, as I am praying, I am sooooo stunned. Because I’m like God, but I have been using it for years. Fastforward as I am doing some shopping, the Lord told me to look at a particular section and it was the “Ethnic” section and there it was … A horse shampoo in the “Ethnic section.” Then God told me to walk to the other “regular” section where typically people of Caucasian descent shop at. To my surprise all the minerals and things we as Black people need for our hair is in their shampoo… but not in ours… we get a horse for our hair products, and they get flowers and watermelon.
The reason I did not want to write this is because I do not tell people what I personally use because some people online are simply weird. But God wanted me to say this. There is no reason that black hair products should have animals on it such as monkeys and horses… But the others do not. I am going to put a picture to show the difference. We need to stop supporting these so-called beauty companies that compare black hair to animals.
Father, help me to simply focus on you. In Jesus Name, Amen.
