rip nelson mandela. (1918 – 2013) he fought a good fight, but now he’s at peace.
i’m not as sad at his death since it wasn’t a tragic end.
he was older and you have to expect it was coming. he did good while he was on this earth, changed the world, became the first black president of south africa, and is cemented within the history books.
for that i pay my respects.
the coming generations will learn about this great man who fought for what he believed in. i’d say he had a good run, don’t you?

she also pondered why these sistas in the industry always dye their hair blonde? i often wondered myself because many of them looking stunning with darker hair.
before we hung up,
she said i should thank my parents i am able to “pass“. “life is not to kind to dark berries,” she said.
that part left me confused…
… but i got it.
i wanted to say it hasn’t got me a job,
i started to wonder if the lighter the skin, the more open the magic door of acceptance?
according to her,
be amazing if you “pass“?…
