It actually looks like she's attempting to make herself look more AMERICAN! Not show off traditional African beauty! Traditionally West African women wear head wraps and braids NOT WEAVES that reach down to their butts!!!!

Since joining Kola's board I've taken up a much more interest in African culture! So when I get a chance I chat a little with some Sengalese immigrants that work at a convienent store near my apartment. To make a long story short they were very please that I appeared interested in their country and yesterday one of the guys even leant me a cd of African music videos.

To my surprise I saw one female singer with a long red weave (like Eve) going down to her breast and some too light makeup.........

Actually ALL the female singers had on makeup that was 2 or 3 shades TOO LIGHT for their skin. I could look at their arms and facial features and tell their makeup color simply did not fit!
