Teyana Taylor visited the White House in the spirit of Angela Davis and slayed
I’m convinced Teyana Taylor has a direct line to the ancestors. Beyoncé has the same direct line, so when she told us all, “slay trick or you get eliminated,” Teyana took it to heart. The ancestors blessed her to go forth and flourish. And to honor them, she made 2016 her little bitch.
Her latest slay may be her best. Or at least it’s my favorite. On Thursday, Teyana accompanied the Cleveland Cavaliers on their visit to the White House. Her husband Iman Shumpert is the Cavaliers shooting guard. Teyana strutted in the White House with a big ‘fro as an homage to former Black Panther Party activist and educator Angela Davis. You can’t tell me that is not the ancestors guiding her.
But that’s not all.
Teyana also wore a burgundy pantsuit — an obvious nod to Hillary Clinton — and stood in front of the picture of Clinton hanging on the wall. “Walked up in da White House like…#WhoGoneStopUs,” she wrote.
You thought she was finished? Nope. She had to get the most out of that ‘fro and pantsuit! In a second Instagram post, black and white photo, she holds her fist up. She made her homage to the revolutionary Angela Davis clear by quoting Davis in the caption. “I am no longer accepting the things I cannot change… I’m changing the things I cannot accept -Angela Davis.”

They may never let her in the White House again, but it was worth it. Besides, after January 20, I don’t think she’s going to want to go back anyway. This is what you call getting in formation.
