Describe yourself and describe the rest of the world. I am simply the skin he never fit in. The poetry she always found the power to preach. The never ending story of which they are in constant search for conclusion. The silent soldier slowly learning to speak.

As I look back on my life, I realize that every time I thought I was being rejected from something good, I was actually being re-directed to something better.

I Felt the need to do a drawing of Afia Melanin encouraging a young black girl to be confident with her natural hair style. This stems from me seeing negative comments lately on social media about Jay-Z and Beyonce’s infant daughter, who's hair is often styled in an afro hair style. I was disgusted at the fact that most of the comments came from black people themselves. Have we become so brainwashed that we've forgotten what our hair NATURALLY looks like? These are situations that would definitely piss off Afia Melanin. See Afia in action along with the “BlackGuard” at http://www.bosccomics.com/

 I highly recommend reading the entire article.

only 8% of films star a protagonist of color
of the 8 protagonists of color, all are men; 6 are played by Will Smith and 1 is a cartoon character (Aladdin)
0% of protagonists are women of color
