I Am Free - Willow Smith
Interesting change for the young artist. Interesting message, overall I like the change in dynamic.
I really like this. I REALLY do.
what i don’t get is why people want to hate on her so much, or question her parents, her dress, her hair, etc.
i mean, look at her. look at how happy she is. look at how beautiful she is. look at her. isn’t this what we want for our children? isn’t this is what we wanted *as* children? is that what we want for our young Black women? our daughters, our sisters? isn’t this what we fight for? to be heard, to be open, to be honest?
to be free?
I feel like she was channeling Alanis. Great song. The fact that adults are quick to criticize, chastise and demean children for doing things that they couldn’t do or weren’t allowed to do is telling.
