As always, shout out to Issa Rae for starting the trend and like always this is not against any non-person of color, but by being a person of color I will always root for people that look like me.
If you clicked on the article and watched the quick Target ad you may of noticed a few things.
- Black company empowering Black people
- Follows Blerd’s ideology of P.I.Q. (Positivity, Inclusion, & Quality )
- NOT RACIST
Well now you are asking yourself “Jbreazy, why are you promoting a business in your everything black article?” It is because a month after this commercial appeared it has become under attack on the review sites. Starting Monday 3/2/2020 Honey Pot has had an influx of one star reviews most stating the ad was “discriminating against white people”. During the commercial the founder stated, “The reason why is importation for Honey Pot to do well is so the next black girl that comes up with the next idea she can have a better opportunity.” Racism is the systematic repression of a group of people, not the attempt uplift an underrepresented group. Dear non people of color, rooting for someone who does not represent the majority group and comes from an underserved minority is by definition, not racist.
Let’s catch everyone one up to what Honey Pot is. The Honey Pot, founded by Bea Dixon in 2014 (the woman from the target ad) created the first complete feminine care system that cleanses protects and balances the vagina. 100% natural powered by herbs made by humans with vaginas for humans with vaginas.
Since the online hatred started, sales have begun to increase for The Honey Pot company. I personally went to the local target to try to purchase a couple of the products and donated them to the local women’s shelter, but it was completely sold out. After that I went to the official website to see what other retailers sold this product, and on the website I noticed most of the products on the site were sold out there as well. It goes to show you when actual racist go low, our people will still go high. Its March, which is women’s empowerment month. Bea is pushing for the empowerment of women for the next generation so that they do not have to go thru the hurdles and obstacles black woman have had to face in this and previous generations. Why is this a bad thing? Why is it met with negativity? When will the narrative change? All i know it i will be rooting for you to do well because it’s a great thing you’re doing and not only because you are black.
