“You’re to pretty too be African”

People always say that I don’t look African!? But I ask myself how is someone supposed to look African? Are we all supposed to be ugly? I wouldn’t say that all Africans are beautiful, but most of them are. I know that it’s not there (people) fault that they think Africans are all sort of thing, it’s the social media that show them how our ancestors were, so they still think that’s how all Africans look like. In this world there is people that will look beautiful and there will be some that don’t, no matter what race you from. That’s just how God decided to great human beings.
