didn’t know ancient egyptians looked like mayo…

RHAMSES IM CHOKING LIKE THEY DIDNT SEE THE STATUES OR NOTHING

Ok but of course the servants and thieves are black ok i see yall

Brown Jesus from Palestine, what the fuck is this!
Tuya and Zipporah are Sub Saharan unarguable black. Like you Zipporah’s familial descendants are still living a pastoral life in the same place she was from, and they still look like her.
Queen Tuya is black, in fact her tomb was found after the front load of white supremacist archeologist raided Egypt, so surprisingly enough her features were kept in tact on all of her antiquities as was her full name which also described where she was from…modern day Ethopian/Chad/Sudan area.
No matter how much fake tanner, pretty pretty hair pieces, faux box braids Sigourney will look ridiculous.
So it’s real nice to know that every reoccurring woman of visible East African descent is non existent and every male of visible African decent is a poor criminal. Awesome, and super accurate.

Ebola Updates - Here’s A Summary Of the Latest News Concerning the Ebola Outbreak in West Africa.
As reported earlier, the current outbreak of Ebola in several West African countries is the deadliest on record.
The first wave of this outbreak first occurred earlier this year with confirmed cases in both Guinea and Liberia. Now, currently in its second wave, a senior official at Doctors Without Borders has described the outbreak as being ‘totally out of control’ as the death toll from the virus continues to escalate and has so far claimed close to 700 lives.
In recent news, health officials working to address and contain the disease have become infected with the virus resulting in the death of Liberian doctor Samuel Brisbane and Ugandan doctor Simon Ajok. Brisbane is the first Liberian doctor to die from the illness. Now, two American health workers Dr Kent Brantly and Nancy Writebol have both tested positive for the disease. Both are in isolation a treatment facility at the ELWA hospital in Monrovia, Liberia. Brantly and Writebol are said to be in stable but serious conditions.
Previously, cases had been announced in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone. However, last week the first Ebola case of this outbreak was confirmed in Lagos, Nigeria, after a Liberian national that travelled on a yet unnamed airline collapsed at the Murtala Mohammed Airport and was rushed to hospital. Doctors confirmed he did have Ebola and within days, he had passed away from the disease. One of the local airlines in the country, Arik Air, has now banned all flights to and from Liberia and Sierra Leone.
A woman with Ebola on Sierra Leone has been tracked down by officials after she was forcibly removed from the hospital by her family.
According to The Guardian, the west African outbreak is the first time that Ebola, which was first discovered in what is now the Democratic Republic of Congo in 1976, has appeared in heavily populated urban areas and international travel hubs. The mortality rate of the current outbreak is about 60%.
There is no cure or vaccine for the virus.

Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou. Untitled (Vodou Series), 2011.

Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou’s photographs of the people of Porto-Novo, Benin (formerly Republic of Dahomey) are drawn from street life, his friends, family and studio customers. Benin is all about colour – Porto Novo is like a visual assault.In Leonce’s impressive portraits, wild combinations of locally designed Dutch imported textiles create extreme gradations between background, foreground, person and clothing. Leonce is part of a generation experiencing rapid change and his photographs capture the energy and unfettered zest for life of a people caught between tradition and progress.
