When you have to tell your employer about themselves & their stinking negative behavior and they then carry on like FUCKERY , like your talking crazy, its your fault they are acting like that towards you.

Iko and Eko twin albino brothers.
Have U Ever Heard of the “Muse Brothers”???
George and Willie Muse, albino brothers living in the rural South during the late 1800s, is stirring.According to accounts, the brothers were kidnapped as boys, sold off to a local carnival sideshow and paraded around the country.The brothers were tricked by a bounty hunter working for a sideshow promoter and taken away from their mother. The man told the brothers that their mother was dead.

The brothers learned to play guitar and mandolin, which became a feature of their act. Amazingly, they were never paid for their work and it was rumored they were sold among other promoters like slaves.
Lew Graham, a manager for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, marketed them as Eko and Iko, the “Ambassadors from Mars” discovered by spaceship wreckage in California’s Mojave Desert. The name would remain with them until they retired.In 1927, the brothers were reunited with their mother, Harriet. The Ringling circus came to Roanoke and Mrs. Muse tracked down her boys. The reunion was bittersweet, however, as she couldn’t keep her sons from returning to the circus. Mrs. Muse fought for her sons and their freedom, enlisting the help of a local attorney to sue Ringling for back pay and for keeping the brothers in bondage.Ultimately the lawyer won a settlement for the Muse brothers and from then on they were paid by the circus.Missing the road, the Muse brothers rejoined Ringling and were able to earn enough money to buy their mother a home. Mrs. Muse died in 1943.The Muse brothers continued to perform and as they reached towards the tail end of their performing life, they were reportedly happy.
The brothers, who never married, retired in 1961 and lived the rest of their lives in Roanoke, Va.George, the eldest of the brothers, died in 1971. Willie lived until the age of 108, passing in 2001.

This is one of the most insulting things that I have every seen, it makes me so mad I actually want to cry. I can’t believe magazines think that they can just dipped a woman in brown paint, give her clothes from my culture to put on and have the audacity to call her an “African Queen”. Growing up I heard so may jokes about Africans and saw the negative stereotypes portrayed by the media that tried to make me feel bad about where I come from. Yet Ive noticed when fashion magazine want to do spreads portraying poise and exoticness they often turn to Africa ( proving time and again that Africa is more than the negative images you see in the media)  but this time, to try and take parts of my beautiful culture and have a white women play the role just proves that beauty cannot be seen in our countries/cultures unless it is represented by White people. 

y

middle eastern and Moroccan??? a)the middle east isn’t africa and b) there are no middle eastern or moroccan models?
