Founder of ‘For Brown Girls’ Passes Away at Age 22 of Apparent Suicide


The 22 year old who founded For Brown Girls as a way of celebrating black women has passed away at age 22 of an apparent sυicide.

Karyn Washington founded For Brown Girls, then launched her #DarkSkinRedLip initiative after rapper A$ap Rocky cautioned dark skinned girls against wearing red lipstick.  The mission of both endeavors was to encourage darker skinned women to celebrate their beauty.

She described how she came to create FBG:

When the blog was initially created, my cousin and I were dealing with self-esteem issues relating to our complexion and we would vent to each other. Through talking it out and building each other up, we felt better but also didn’t like the fact that we were even having these feelings to begin with. We also realized that other girls may be going through the same thing and wanted to use Tumblr as a means to vent, encourage others and overcome. Since then, I have gained a greater passion for the cause and helping others.

Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you’ll make a dream last
But dreams come slow, and they go so fast

You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you’ll understand why
Everything you touch surely dies

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!  How could you?  So beautiful but so damn sad.

Happy and sad love stories, all in the same breath.

Shadowlands. Can I tell you how this movie breaks my heart in a million pieces and just leaves it out in the cold? When I was going through my Anthony Hopkins obsession phase I watched it like once a week. Its in my Top 5 movies of all time now. I hate that there arent more scenes on Youtube.

"Elmo" accuser recants story. Says relationship was "consensual and adult". I am baffled, boggled, and saddened by this entire story. My hope is that is untrue as I have always seen Kevin Clash as a positive role model for young kids and it sucks that his entire career could now be irreparably damaged. makes weird noises and it doesnt just sound like rain anymore but also static and I cant listen to it : (

Dont want to write the next Hotch/Megan story. Its sad and I have enough sad with the story I’m working on now. Hey fluffy bunnies, where are you?

I just got the story of why the Megan who lives in my head hates her father so much. It made me sick to my stomach. Sometimes these characters have some very sad stories to tell. I dont know if I can even write that one.
