“We are black children and that’s for sure,” she sings. “Don’t take from us our right to live.” Drop mic.

“They say [black girls] are ugly because they are black,” MC Soffia tells Nós, Mulheres da Periferia. “They shouldn’t accept that. They should accept who they are. … do not be ashamed.” #Damnstraight

Besides racism, she sings about beauty ideals, education and all the women she admires, most of whom she learned about in history class like Frida, Clementina de Jesus and Cleopatra.

BTW, her pink bow IS on point.
