2) Also, one morning my 55 year old Spanish woman roommate asked me, as I was moisturizing my face, "How do people of color keep their skin so young looking?". She said that she knew two people of color who were around 70 years old and had little to no wrinkles! I just told her that it was the melanin and it was natural. What else could I say??
3) Right now my hair(locs) is very curly. I went to a Chino(a discount store-like Dollar Tree-owned by Asians, their(Spanish folk) word-not mine) and had a 10 minute conversation with the cashier about how I made my hair curly, how long would the curls last, and what would happen if I washed it.....Interesting. I'm thinking about writing a book about African hair and having in translated in every European and Asian language! It's crazy to me that we(people of African descent) know EVERYTHING about them(everybody else) but they know close to nothing about us.
