Notice how it is mostly the pale skin people who was trying to leave Cuba?. Did you know that under white control s Africa. It was Castro who sent troops to Angola to stop them ( the white S Africans army) invading that country, and his love for Mandela is timeless.…Just a little bit of knowledge..

Amazing and mind blowing.…. I know that black culture is hidden behind the curtains in many brown countries, I just never realized to what extant.

I definitely was not expecting to see so many beautiful black people, with every tone imaginable, in this Hispanic country.

I feel the same feeling I felt when I saw that ancient Chinese people, dating before the Chinese we’ve grown to know and still love, were brown with afros.…a mixed feeling of joy and sadness, because I now know our people are hidden everywhere.

L O V E this editorial. Also, in general although porter is a relatively new mag, there content is by for more diverse and features mature women often.

I mean Black mags aren’t event doing pieces like this! Shame.
