King Leopold turned his "Congo Free State" into a massive labour camp, made a fortune for himself from the harvest of its wild rubber, and contributed in a large way to the death of perhaps 10 million innocent people. "I was so moved, Your Excellency, by the people's stories that I took the liberty of promising them that in future you will only kill them for crimes they commit." John Harris, Missionary in Baringa. #Maafa #Africa #African #Congo #DRC
I know a foolproof way to make a bad house in minecraft look nice: Step one- build it high up, floating, on a cliff, on stilts, I don't care. Step two- section off space for bedrooms, storage rooms, a kitchen, a useless bathroom, whatever. Step three- add as many decorations as you can. If the floor is made of dirt, plant flowers. Hang pictures on the walls, add paintings, flowerpots, banners, tie iron golems to the fence. Ta-da! Enjoy your lovely house!
This cool toned palette would look stunning in any season, but has us dreaming of an elegant winter wedding! Plum is such a luxurious and versatile colour, so it's a great choice for your bridesmaid dresses - pair it with soft lilac florals to dial up the romance. If a purple dinner jacket isn't quite your groom's style, a silver grey suit with statement plum tie or pocket square fits just as well with this beautiful colour story. Touches of white in your cake, bouquet and stationery also…
I walked into the Women's Room, I loved getting my nails/feet done. It was relaxing and the ladies who did the mani/pedicures always had great stories to share. I tie my hair in a messy knot and sit in a chair. In the middle of my pedicure another girl walks in. ~Penelope
