While the Cleve­land Cav­a­liers were at the White House cel­e­brat­ing their recent NBA Cham­pi­onship win, Teyana Tay­lor stole the social media spot­light with her proud pose.  She wore a big afro, hoop ear­rings, and bur­gundy turtle­neck and suit — all rem­i­nis­cent of Angela Davis — while pos­ing near a Hillary Clin­ton paint­ing. Tay­lor was attend­ing the event with her Cav­a­lier hus­band Iman Shu­pert.

She also post­ed a black-and-white close­up shot of her get­up on Insta­gram with the fol­low­ing Davis quote as her cap­tion:

I am no longer accept­ing the things I can­not change… I’m chang­ing the things I can­not accept -Angela Davis

Maybe it was a coin­ci­dence that Don­ald Trump was vis­it­ing the White House as well. Or maybe not. Either way, we know who Tay­lor was sup­port­ing for pres­i­dent.

What do you think of Teyana Taylor’s statement?

Inter­est­ing that she would pose with the por­trait of woman who laud­ed Klans­man Robert KKK Byrd 

She also said Mar­garet Sanger was her hero—a woman who start­ed Planned Par­ent­hood to get rid of Black peo­ple

I think her state­ment was cheap! I wish these stars (who would oth­er­wise be flaunt­ing a Euro-style) would stop putting on afros when they feel like being pro-black and/or mil­i­tant. They are no bet­ter than the non-blacks who politi­cize our hair with­out our input or per­mis­sion. I am a black woman with a nat­ur­al hair/afro and I don’t need every­one assum­ing that I’m mil­i­tant. I wear my hair this way all day, every­day, with­out it being some polit­i­cal state­ment. I wear it that way because sim­ply put, it’s mine! Please stop flaunt­ing afros when you feel like being mil­i­tant and… Read more »
