THIS IS SO FUCKING IMPORTANT!
black ballerina excellence
So gorgeous and elegant
Why is this important? i see a girl doing ballet, stop outlining difference, its important we just admire the skills, and afore mentioned ellegance
First of all shut the fuck up and have several seats
and heres why in Michaela’s own words what she had to go through beig BLACK and still goes through
When she was around 8 and rehearsing for The Nutcracker, just a few days before the performance she was told, “I’m sorry, you can’t do it. America’s not ready for a black girl ballerina.”
For Michaela, “to say this to an 8-year-old is just devastating. It was terrible.”
When she was 9, a teacher told her mother: “I don’t like to put money into black dancers because they grow up and end up having big boobs and big hips.”
The dancer looked down at her petite figure and protested, “I don’t have boobs. I don’t get it.”
Instead of getting her down, “It makes me more determined,” she said. “Because I’ve been through so much, I know now that I can make it and I can help other kids who have been in really bad situations realize that they can make it too.”
This is why it is important, for little Black girls to see a black ballerina made it despite being discriminated against because of her skin color!!!
