My name is JaMese Reese, I go by Jay Jay. I'm an aspiring comedian, feminist & activist. A simple girl with a complex mind. I'm in love with natural beauty and natural hair. I reblog things I find amusing plus add the fuckery that is inside my brain. Enjoy all that is me.
Peace & be.
The Afar, nomads and pastoralists, live in the “Afar triangle” (or Danakil) in the Horn of Africa, now straddling the territories of three countries: Ethiopia, Eritrea and Djibouti. Breeders of goats, sheep, camels and cattle, the Afar also ensured once the caravan transportation on behalf of Yemeni merchants between the Ethiopian highlands and the Red Sea. Long Islamized (Sunni), they remain imbued with traditional animist beliefs and reminiscences of ancient Egypt.
[…] Initiated in November 2010, the Afar project is now coming close to its end. It has been a slow motion project made up of patience and impregnation. The photographer made four journeys, spending several months in immersion in the Afar community, sharing their life in the settlements.
[…] According to the photographer, it is “an attempt at portraying the beauty and majesty, as well as preserving the memory of the Afar people and of this region of the world where human communities continue to live according to their ancient cultures and traditions in a pristine natural environment”. Bearing witness, helping understand and inspire action, if possible, but also presenting Africa through lenses radically different than the ‘evils’ (wars, epidemics, famines, poverty…) or some exotic and simplistic clichés through which she tends to be caricatured.
I love it

What the fuck. Why people be retweeting?
Do gay whites realize when they compare the struggle of gays to race they’re ignoring queer black people and QPoC that are more vulnerable to discrimination than they are? No they dont.
I saw these tweets today, but I ignored because I’m trying to change my twitter life. He is trash though. Pure trash.
This how so many potential rebuttals that I’m overwhelmed by thoughts in head. So I’ll just save them for someone who’s not insane and have a small chance at understanding.
QPOC—-you mean black gays? because thats who the twitter rant was directed at.
Ok it’s morning right now and I just prayed, so I’ll contain myself. BUT WTF IS HE TALKING ABOUT? DOES HE NOT REALIZE WE WERE ROYALTY? I need a breakfast sandwich. Ugh!
If you’re suffering from depression and are looking for a sign to not go through with ending your life, this is it. This is the sign. We care.
If you see this on your dash, reblog it. You could save a life.
PLEASE I CARE! I LOVE YOU! YOU MATTER
I care, I may not always know how to say it but I care
