1 point@Delano that huffpo article stems from a Sun article from 2016 https://www.thesun.co.uk/archives/news/1176905/exposed-sweatshop-slaves-earning-just-44p-an-hour-making-empowering-beyonce-clobber/ The Sun a British equivalent of the New York Post, is a step above the Inquirer (barely). It is fascinating just how many outlets have written articles on the Sun's article -- quoting sources 2nd hand even huffpo failed to link directly to the source article. In other words this is all gossip. Do I think Bey would use slave labor for her clothing line. Sure, but I don't think she is involved in that level of decision making. While I don't agree with judging people based upon their looks. I agree more with @Pioneer1's assessment of Bey setting the a eurocentric standard for beauty that does not serve Black people... but I would not be surprised if she were not involved in the decision making for her own look.
1 pointThe Facilitator/Counselor Edition of the collection Psychoactive Poetry, as with my earlier collection Hoisting a whirlwind, is formatted to be used as a poetry therapy and creative writing resource book. It includes an Introduction which furnishes the intellectual and spiritual context of the poems. There are instructive suggestions on the use of this book by counselors, as well as by creative writing teachers. The "invitation to write" feature at the base of each poem makes this a unique and invaluable resource in either setting. Of course, none of this rules out simply reading and enjoying the poems. This new edition will be available for download as of August 7, 2018 at: https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/88130
