Mihlali N is defs the certified look queen of Mzansi, but she also uses the facility of her social media to spread awareness about issues plaguing society.

In this week’s critiques, the YouTube sensation shared her opinions on black empowerment. The star said she had encountered an individual saying that disclaimers that show a preference for “black-owned” are “racist”.

However, the make-up guru was definitely not letting that sort of comment slide.

“Someone just said ‘preferably black-owned’ is racist, haha they hate anything that empowers black people,” wrote Mihlali.

Many agreed with Mihlali, sharing their own thoughts on racism that’s still rampant in 2021. However, some users disagreed with Mihlali’s take.

This isn’t the primary time Mihlali has commented on issues within the black community. The star has also addressed how parents recoil from conversations about relationships, leaving scars on the lives of these affected.

The influencer’s comments came after SowetanLIVE reported that a 12-year-old girl was allegedly subjected to brutal sjambokking by her mother and her live-in lover for “kissing” a boy.

“Black parents would rather beat their children to death than normalize having conversations about sexuality and romantic relationships …” Mihlali wrote.
