Mo’Nique wants young sistas and “queens in training” to stop wearing bonnets, slippers, pajamas, and blankets in public.
The legendary comedian and actress was moved to share her message after she went to the Atlanta airport to catch a flight to Mississippi and caught an eyeful.
Auntie Mo said:
As we began to walk through the airport, I saw so many – actually too many to count and too many for me to tap – but, I saw so many of our young sistas in head bonnets, scarves, slippers, pajamas, blankets wrapped around them…and this is how they are showing up to the airport.
She went to say…
And the question I am having to you, my sweet babies – when did we lose pride in representing ourselves? When did we step away from let me make sure I’m presentable when I leave my home? Let me make sure I’m representing the family I created so that if I’m out in the street I look like I have pride in myself.
