If you don’t reblog this, I have no faith in your humanity whatsoever.
He’s off on an assignment sanctioned by his government to invade a country where people of the same age of his son will be shot to death in night raids and massacres will go unreported but pictures like this one will keep popping up on TV, social media dashboards and timelines to garner misplaced sympathy with a machine that uses people to kill people.
I am always amazed by how easily people fall for this kind of bullshit. More like if you don’t reblog this, I have faith in your ability to see through media propaganda that glorifies invasions and occupations by showing an Empire’s soldiers with their children but never showing the people they kill in Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan and beyond.

Ugandan model Kiara Kabukuru in an editorial for Elle (US) in June 1994 titled ‘Field Of Dreams’ and photographed by Gilles Bensimon in Marrakech, Morocco.
This is one of my most favourite fashion editorials as rarely do we see these carefree ‘shoots involving dark-skinned black women, and whenever Western magazines shoot in foreign locations involving local subjects in the ‘shoot, they are often merely used as agent-less props which is not the case in this spread.
There’s also the inclusion of Africans of different hues in an African location, which I love.
However, I’m yet to discover the name of Kabukuru’s photoshoot partner.
oh this is PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Aah! So amazing :D
