Anonymous said: I'm East African, from South Sudan actually. Why do people think all East Africans are these curly haired goddesses with light skin. They only show them.
I blame rappers like Drake for this. Drake is infamous for fetishizing light skinned Ethiopian, Somali, and Eritrean women in his music. Safy-Hallan Farah wrote about this in her article “Poetic Justice: Drake and East African Girls" . Also, I blame the white supremacist media. xx -C
