Why do teachers profile students based on their appearance? As if appearance dictates their intellect. Why do teachers think that a student with dreads and gold teeth can’t articulate their words? We're taught to express ourselves but when we express ourselves in ways that aren’t appealing to the eye of the white man or white woman then we are no longer intelligent. Or so they thought, wear your hair natural black king, wear your hoop earrings and bangles black Queen. Do what makes you comfortable and never change who you are to appeal to those who don’t know you are well rounded, brilliant and black. Let’s debunk the narrative that you have to look a certain way, talk a certain way, dress a certain way to be accepted. Let’s continue to be Unique and change America’s view of perfection.
