What a strange world we live in. A world full of illusion. The entertainment industry is a great example of this. The women we laud as the most beautiful are mostly made of plastic and the men we hail as the most masculine or macho (rappers) are significantly gay. But they don't tell us that. They project a false image that we buy into and would do anything to emulate. Why can't everyone just be real. It would make life much simpler. That's one of the reasons I moved back to Africa. To get as far away from the madness as possible. It's crazy here too. A woman with natural hair is often looked down on, seen as less attractive and told to go get a perm.
