Hoping for the day Hoteps stop being self-haters and finally embrace their West African roots instead of regions that have nothing to do with us. They should also stop acting like “ancient Egypt” is the only place remaining in North Africa today.
I added some additional websites as well as languages. Also I would like to state that is in no way meant to be a comprehensive list of all of the languages of west Africa. There are literally hundreds upon hundreds of languages and I cannot find resources for them all. I will keep adding to this list.
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
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.
