This is one of the most insulting things that I have ever seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dip a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on for a couple hours and then have audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard every joke about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel so bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( and many other foreign continents/nations) proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media) but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture just to have white women play the role of an “African Queen” proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people.
grosss no way
I’m having issues w my old job. They fired me without any kind of notice and I’m asking for a month’s comp bc there was no notification. But they are misinterpreting and saying the reasons of termination were just. Whether or not you have reasons or not, you have to give me notification. Right? Anyone know? Anyone know any labor lawyers who can help me out ?
"Some are born with busts, some are born with butts, but whatever makes you feel confident and like loving yourself more, be proud. I’m all for it. ”
I was born with boobs (bigger than what makes me feel good and confident) I dont know what to do besides wearing sports bras everyday.
Cooking!! Same ingredients. Just different methods. Nomsssss
Sometimes I want to go to culinary school. Cooking and learning about cooking and learning about food and its history is so fun and intriguing to me
I should blog more
Looking back at my personal tags I see that i used to write quite often and I barely blogged when I was in my relationship. I didn’t even get to blog the good times, our break up, and whatever we have now.
And other new things
Home is where the heart is
I used to say you were my home.
Okay so here’s something that I feel people never take into consideration when using this example- if the cup was full prior, and you poured out half of it, it is totally valid for it to be seen as half empty, and if prior the cup was empty, it would totally make sense that someone would view it as half full. So be aware that past experiences have an affect on how people view things and you telling them to “look on the bright side” is just another way of saying “conform to my mindset”.
You are wonderful.
You totally killed it
