It has come to my attention the people feel entirely too comfortable asking beautiful women of color questions about their looks. Here’s a short list of questions NOT TO ASK, because it’s none of your damn business.

  • Is that your real hair?

  • What do you use on your skin?

  • Where did you buy [insert anything]?

  • Where are you from-from?

  • How much did [a thing on your person or in your proximity] cost?

It’s important to know that these questions are only appropriate in certain context, but not from strangers who feel the need to violate your personal space with dumb ass questions.
