From my Affirmation Collection - The "Melanin Poppin" Beaded Choker.

I love the Melanin Movement. Finally I can talk about my skin, or my ethnicity without the label police getting angry that I'd call myself black, or god forbid African American. I, like many people born in this country have roots from other places. Mine come from Jamaica, and of course before that Africa (and England because, well you know).
I, for just this second, am happy that we came up with the idea, and it wasn't just some label thrown at my community to sate our hunger for respectful recognition.
