Apparently I’m a chameleon. I look innocent enough for predators to ask me out while asking my age, but also able to give a good enough death stare to ward them off busse when they’re creeping on pubescent school girl.

I must utilize this power.

Anonymous said: You could try ink to dye the braiding hair I think there's a tutorial on YouTube

I was thinking of using a dye to give it a similar honey/orange undertone my hair has now but thanks I will look it up.

Under French colonialism, Haiti was a worth a fortune in enslaved human beings. From the French slave owners’ perspectives, Haitian independence abolished not slavery, but their property and a source of common-wealth. Unfortunately, history provides us with the exact figures on what their property was worth; in 1825, “France recognized Haitian independence by a treaty requiring Haiti to pay an indemnity of 150 million francs payable in 5 years to compensate absentee slaveowners for their losses” (Schuller, 2007, p.149). The magnitude of these reparations not for slavery, but to former slave owners, plunged Haiti into eternal debt. Eve Tuck and K. Wayne Yang, Decolonization is not a metaphor (via mahakavi)

This what I tell people when they ask me “if Haiti gained it’s independence why aren’t they more self sufficient? “
