There are no substitutes for your unique beauty

June 13, 2012

Each person and every ethnicity has its own beauty that should be celebrated.  I enjoy seeing the Universe’s diversity as I admire the long flaxen hair of some Europeans, bone-straight hair of some Asians as well as the gravity-defying magical hair of Africans like me.  I also find great beauty in the spectrum of skin tones ranging from snowy white to black onyx.  There is so much beauty in diversity and its unfortunate that certain social and historical forces have  led many of us to deny our own beauty in seach of someone else’s through nose jobs, skin-bleaching and other practices.

 I’m thankful for models such as Ajak Deng who demonstrate unapologetic black beauty.
