Ask A Black Chick Podcast Ep.2: I’m A White Ally. Is It OK For Me To Use The Term #Blackgirlmagic?

What’s Happening

Hurricane Irma

Hurricane Irma has ripped through the Caribbean and has reportedly made Barbuda inhabitable which is completely mind blowing. Unfortunately, it isn’t done and is on it’s way to Florida. I’m hoping and praying that Irma slows down by the time it hits Florida. For live updates and to watch the track of the storm, click here for Hurricane Irma updates.

Bey Day

Beyonce’s birthday was on Labor Day so we all enjoyed a wonderful, nation wide holiday. Her family and friends put together this awesome photo array honoring her iconic look in Lemonade. Take a look at Beyonce’s family and friend’s gift to her here.

First Trans Model for L’Oreal Fired

Munroe Bergdorf was let go from L’Oreal because of her Facebook rant that stated that all white people are racist. It was a problem.

This Week’s Question

Christina Asks:

As a white ally and supporter of #BlackGirlMagic, I’m trying to educate myself as much as possible so here’s a question! How do black women feel about white people using the label “Black girl magic” to talk about the issues brought forward by the term and to celebrate black culture?

When is it OK and not OK for white people to use the term? Is it OK, for example, for me to talk about novels by black female authors and refer to them as “Black girl magic”?
