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.

How did a ballon get up here?? No ones been up here for how long and suddenly, BALLON??
This is turning into some kind of adventure or something//

(( The balloon is protecting you. It is secretly an element of power that protects you from bees.

// the fact that its purple is enough for me to believe that XD Well I’m back to my room now and I’m safe from the bee’s. Woo!//

(( The taint has protected you.))
