US diplomat raises eyebrows by asking whether Afghans know about ‘#BlackGirlMagic and the movement it inspired’
A U.S. diplomat raised eyebrows by publicly asking whether Afghans are acquainted with “#BlackGirlMagic and the movement it inspired” and whether women and girls in that nation “need a similar movement.”
“Are Afghans familiar with #BlackGirlMagic and the movement it inspired? Do Afghan girls need a similar movement? What about Afghan Women? Teach me, ready to learn,” tweeted Karen Decker, Chargé d’Affaires of the U.S. Mission to Afghanistan.
Decker included the hashtag “#BlackHistoryMonth” and tagged Beyoncé, Lizzo, and Regina King in the post.
