Dear Kylie Jenner,
You can have whatever your heart desires because of your family’s fame. You throw your money around at big things like fancy cars, vacations, expensive Cartier, big boobs, big butt, little waist, the big lips, the tanned skin, your own makeup line. Magazines say that you invented wigs. Big lips were trending everywhere. Your lips even had its own challenge where people tried to make their lips big like yours.
The same big lips that I was teased about when I was in the fifth grade, the lips that made me feel so insecure.
You are dating a black man, but honey can you love him the way that I can? You are not able to make him soul food, the kind that makes embrace his black pride. He is a king, you are trying to be queen but taking black culture will not make you one.
You, Kylie cannot just go around thinking that it is fine to take our culture and make it a “trend.”
Why is it that you can wear a bra in public and it’s called modern or chic but when I do it I am called ghetto or rachet? How can you sit back and take another person’s culture and not give a second thought about it? Your boyfriend was once with a strong, independent black woman. You took a king away from his queen and decided that you wanted him for himself.
Kylie, you want to be black without being black. Do you know what it’s like to be black and watch your culture and everything that you embrace about yourself become a trend? Trends fade, the African American culture will not become a trend for you to parade around whenever you feel like.
Kylie Jenner, take several seats and stop claiming our culture.
