CrespoSOM: The Beauty Within

Fui marcada hoje numa publicação pelo Facebook da Nina Silva e da Elizandra Souza (obrigada!) com o maravilhoso vídeo do Dead Prez, uma homenagem à beleza natural da mulher negra, e uma homenagem doce e bonita, daquelas que emocionam.
Então tô aqui compartilhando mais ainda... THE BEAUTY WITHIN!

“Dedicated, not to America’s Top Model, but to the natural girls right next door. How they say in Avatar, ‘I see you.’”

This Hollywood world so pretentious
Every other girl got a perm or extensions
But you don’t even rarely wear lip stick
Still your beauty is a natural mystic
Indigenous, strong check bone from your lineage
Not what the main stream image is
Natural hair is your heritage
But to see it without chemicals
Is as rare as the pyramids
I was coming from the gym again
Bumping 2Pac, never call you bitch again
She crossed the street, melanin glistening
Felt the energy, something ’bout you so interesting
The prototype Eve, from Genesis
Ghetto empress, Nefertiti resemblance
So sweet, so street and genuine
Real Black Girl, I salute your existence
I could see us just kickin’ it
Building an intimate friendship, more than just hittin’ it
Down to earth, like greens and cornbread
She don’t need no weaves or contacts
Not judging other girls that got that
I’m just saying, you the truth, never doubt that
‘Cause you got that

Beauty’s within, not just on the surface
The skin that you’re in, you’re already perfect
They ain’t got nothing on you, baby
Nothing on you, baby
Beautiful girls come in all types of flavors
When you love yourself, it’s always gone be haters
They ain’t got nothing on you, baby
Just keep doing you, baby

This is going out to my African queen
Dark skin, light skin, everything between
Looking so good when you step up on the scene
Smiling so sweet, so fresh, and so clean
Even though we don’t see you on the flat screen
Ain’t no doubt about what you got in them gene’s
I don’t mean denim, it’s your family tree
Yeah, it’s all about Red, Black and that Green
For Cheanesa and Felina
And for all the pretty little girls
Going out to my momma, my favorite woman
And for all the women in the world
No, they don’t love you on the radio
And they try to play you in the video
But you so beautiful and natural

E abaixo, mais uma versão de clipe da música que tá rolando no Youtube.
