You Can’t Outdo Black People: Presidential Easter Edition

Happy Resurrection Sunday, Saints and Aints! God is good ALLATAHM and ALLATAHM God is good! Yes!

I love Easter, because we get to give Jesus extra praise. But also because it is a day for us to show out everywhere with fashion. It’s like the fresher we are, the closer we are to Him. And Black folks? Well, we step out with a mission to slay people within a 5 mile radius.

The First Couple wasn’t playing with none of us on this Holy Sunday when they stepped out of the White House looking like right. I love it.

President Obama Michelle Easter

Yessss Commander-in-Chief of FRESH! President Obama and First Lady Michelle came through with the earth-tone realness and I’m loving it. Between his cream-colored suit and her cream pumps (COME ON, PUMPS!), I’m getting what I need from these two! Plus, Aunty Shellie’s hair is fried, dyed and laid to the GAWDS of fierce. She doesn’t disappoint.

And there’s something very Chicago about this look. They look like they’re ready to go to a Stepper’s Set, preferably at Club 7. SO CHI THAT YOU THOUGHT THEY WERE BASHFUL!

You can’t outdo Black people, especially on Easter. All over the world, our FRESH is unrivaled. I love us!

    Potus coming through the sanctuary to steal the attention from all the deacons and the pastor too. First Family said they will NOT be outdone this resurrection Sunday. Flotus hair stay laid, it’s like little cherubs descend upon her follicles every morning and press her hair.

    Jesus wore a cloth on the cross and some beat up sandals with a humble robe for most of his life. Please stop using god as an excuse for excessive vanity. And especially in situations where folks spend what they don’t have just to show up to church for a few hours and be seen by everyone except god.

      Right, cause you wuz perched up on his shoulder werntcha? 1. Jesus was prolly making sure that even the poorest of people knew they could access God. There’s a big difference between Jesus and the common person…2. Since when did you get the right to dictate what people spend their monties on? Let black folks walk around looking like refugees and you’ll be crying the loudest about how we are making the race look bad. 3. How you gonna interrupt this swagger celebration to say the most cliché-ist thing in all of negroedom? Cash in your pathology points somewheres else, and take a pastel folding chair with you.

      When I go to praise King Jesus I wear my best. It’s tradition. Sunday was the only day many black folks could get dolled up in the past. So kill that noise.
