“What was beauty before mirrors?” Fannie’s approach to healing is getting to the source of our problems, leaving no stone unturned. Instead of ‘numbing’ our pain, acknowledge it. Fannie herself is unstoppable in her own healing process with her no holds barred honesty about the pain she has endured being an afro-diasporic woman in the face of the white colonial gaze. Her acute awareness has given her the rare wisdom to understand that she feels the most beautiful, not because of how toned she is in a selfie, her job or who she is sitting next to, but because of the intrinsic value of being herself. This and more truths that need exposing for the injustices that they are: scruffy-chic style and the time and vehicles for healing are privileges of the white, skinny and wealthy in Fannie’s full episode.

    "As a whorney person, this can not be wrong". I love her. She's very deep and self aware. But that statement tickled me. Lol.

    Sister in femininity!
    Ladies, it is such a privilege nowadays to know about our body, natural ways to sail with fertility, …
    I am honestly shocked and disgusted by the idea of pill and available sex equaling penetration only. Are you and your men so uninventive and shy to talk?

    Everytime I come here. It's a blessing. Everyone here is filled with this gorgeous light and love. It reminds me how ridiculously gorgeous people are and how different and beautifully unique. This makes me feel so wonderful.

    Her approach to healing and forgiveness is so beautiful. And I love how toward the end of the interview the perspective changes to the set up behind the camera

    She's so open and accepting of her pain. So often we try to separate ourselves from it, but it and we are the same. I needed to hear her speak. Thanks for this.

    She is a beautiful young sister who not only spoke her truth, but the truths of so many who can relate to her emotions and experiences. So glad StyleLikeU was placed in my YouTube recommended channels.

    this is all bullshit. Get out of your own way. There's so much more than this, you're just not looking for it. There's just excuse after excuse. Yes of course its fine to be proud of your people's culture and to be patriotic, nothing wrong with that, its just theres being proud and then there's the narcissism of this lady. What a pity. You can't help those who dont want to be helped.

    I appreciate her struggle but I wouldn’t call her not skinny.. and I wouldn’t call her black.

    Would we really say she is black? I’m asking not trying to start anything..

    Imagine the work of being in a relationship with her. She is a pit that will never be filled. She is drowning in victim culture. Sad.

    Aren't the speakers supposed to undress when they want and not when instructed like being asked to take off her jacket because she feels hot, what's that?

  • HM Bee

    That was so powerful and amazing. Thank you, all 3 of you for doing this work and going deeper. We all need it. We all need to see others reflecting back the work we are doing within ourselves and see that others are showing up as well. ✌

    Race and culture is a crazy topic in different parts of the world it can be one thing and in another part, its completely different. Im portuguese in the u.s. im considered white, but in Europe alot of countries frown upon portuguese culture, its kinda of looked at has a mixed race. Ive been discriminate against, but in the end i feel like its all up to the individual, how they view themselves is all that matters😍
