She has criticized white celebrities' cultural appropriation of black women's hairstyles before, wondering: “What would America be like if it loved black people as much as it loves black culture?”
So when Kylie Jenner rocked cornrows in a new Instagram photo uploaded on Saturday, using the caption: "I woke up like disss," some might have expected a response from Amandla.
Unfortunately, Kylie's new hair also coincided with the trending hashtag #WhiteGirlsDoItBetter on Twitter.
The hashtag was met with pushback due to claims of its racial insensitivity.
So when someone commented #WhiteGirlsDoItBetter on Kylie's Instagram, Amandla jumped in with a response.
when u appropriate black features and culture but fail to use ur position of power to help black Americans by directing attention towards ur wigs instead of police brutality or racism #whitegirlsdoitbetter
