Painful and powerful speech; I checked out the video of it as well.

Me and my girlfrand Jessi Jae Joplin!! Modeling THE COOLEST threads from http://devowevo.com and rocking THE SICKEST kicks by YRU!!

It’s been so long since my last real post but I’m sure you know by now that I’ve just been through a lot of tragedy and am still trying to get back on solid ground. The world around me feels like it’s just shattered over my head. And Im all cut up and bruised. It’s been really hard to find motivation for anything. I’ve been staying in Texas (my home state) for the last few weeks to try and get some normalcy, and I’m beginning to see a light at the end of this tunnel….however dim it may be.

Ok so now that I’ve gvot that off my chest back to the clothes!! I really really love Devo Wevo. I first discovered them a couple years ago when a music producer friend asked me to sing a demo for him but he couldn’t afford my rate (ahem i wasnt gonna charge him anyway but…), so he acyually bought a pair of mary jane leggings from this company and i was in loooove at first sight. And then later I became friends with the owner online and when she came to LA to visit we kicked and the rest is history. These beautiful pictures were taken by the masterly Travis Seale. I just adore how they came out!!

New Generation of Colombian Beauty
People of visible African ancestry are all but invisible in the Colombian media, despite them making up at least a quarter of the country’s entire population. This photo-shoot was made to promote models from the city of Quibdó; the capital of Chocó, which is the Colombian province with the highest population of Afro-descendants per capita.

Oh shucks! Is it inconvenient to love black culture right now? Where did all y’all go? I swore all of you said you believe we are all equal and gotta stop seeing race cause we all bleed red. Please! Come on and join us! Standing up for justice is way more “hardcore” than listening to Jay Z uncensored if you protest until the sun sets. It will be really “edgy” and “hip” to hit the “ghettoest” parts of Ferguson right now! Who’s down? You should braid your hair up and slick your fully-adult baby hairs for some of the peaceful protests, and rallies.. it’ll be so cool, my “nig”! Come on! Let’s be black now!
