Somalia isn’t a monolith. There’s great variety within the looks of what a ‘Somali’ looks like. There are ethnic Somalis (not even Bantus) who have broader noses, coarser hair, darker skin complexions, and even average sized foreheads lol

Can you all stop perpetuating the lie that ALL Africans are poor?

And that ALL Americans are rich/middle class?

Stop believing everything you see in the media. Some places in Africa are very poor, but some places are not poor at all. Just like there are some places in America that are very poor, but some places that are not poor at all. A few pictures and videos from the media about “how poor Africa is” should not determine how you view that entire continent because if that were the case, many would assume ALL Americans lived in poverty based on the few pictures I’ve shown you. Open your minds.

Recently got these braids thanks to 2jam4u making me feel really confident! I hated them the first day but I quickly got over it and fell in love with these badass braids. These are different styles I plan on rocking.

I went natural and stopped chemically straightening my hair in December of 2012, and I’m beginning to love my natural hair! And I’m a big fan of blackout this is my first one and hopefully not my last! I hope everyone feels beautiful and remember anyone who hates on you is just jealous of your melanin ;)

I appreciate Lupita so much. Representation matters y'all ! It really does. Idc what anyone thinks, but, Lupita changed a lot of lives of little dark skin girls. She’s so beautiful ! I can tell you right now that thousands of girls are waking up more confident than they were before, because of this lady. From the skin, to the short natural hair ✨ she’s ICONIC

How many likes/reblogs can this true defenition of beauty get? No makeup no nothing just pure natural habesha (aka Ethiopian/Eritrean) beauty 😲. Most importantly you don’t have to be a super model or have the latest make up to feel pretty. A simple, poor girl can have this much beauty. Wooow 😍 Yes ethiopian and eritreans can have blue eyes. 😉
