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. 

Disgusting and ridiculous. There are, as mentioned, plenty of black models and those girls deserve to get work. (Although I wonder how many black women - and men, for that matter - try to go into modeling and simply give up).

Sherlock is in his Mind Palace again. John watches him in silence. The way his chest moves with every breath, the way his hands dance around him ocassionally. He mouths some word over and over again, probably in search for a link in that big brain of his. Oh, how beautiful he is. John's fingers find his way into Sherlock's curls. John does this sometimes, touch him, when he's like this. Just a caress, really, enough to feel the softness of his hair for a moment. Nobody will ever know.
