I love how shes defending her cover art & pointing out the difference in the reactions to hers vs these model chicks. Shes telling nothing but the truth & not backing down about why she put it out or apologizing & thats whats up! I highly support what shes tryna point out & more people need to standup & point that shit out too. Especially these celebs that have such a strong voice.

Girl meets world addresses Cultural appropriation

Anonymous said: I wanted to say, that the only reason people think varieties like AAVE are inferior or deficient is because its something the black community uses. There has never been or will be any scientific evidence that its an illogical variety of English. It has its own documented phonological and syntactical rules, like every other variety and it fulfills its purpose as it meets the communicative needs of its speakers. Standard English isn't the norm because it's "right", its simply the most powerful..
