Raising a black boy in America means that you are raising public enemy number one. It’s astonishing to me that the fragility of his childhood is marred with projections because his rate of growth. To me he is 7 but to others he appears to be 9-12. So, imagine having to constantly advocate for his innocence.

With @natalyosmann. #followmeto mysterious Venice. This was the time people thought Nataly was walking naked on the streets :)). Actually she wasn’t - this is just me finding a good angle. First time in Venice and I can definitely say that this was one of the most romantic places we have been to.
P.s I know it is a mask, but always had a feeling that it is looking me right in the eyes, whenever I saw this picture :)

#ⒻⓄⓁⓁⓄⓌⓂ️ⒺⓉⓄ #следуйзамной в Венецию. Помню, как мы бегали по городу в поиске идеальной маски. К нашему удивлению, найти, ту самую, было достаточно сложно. Конечно, они все были очень красивыми, но почему-то казались туристическими. Вам может показаться, что Наташа тут чуть ли не голая, но это не так. Оптический обман :). Это был мой первый раз в Венеции и я точно могу сказать, что это один из самых романтичных городов, в котором мы когда-либо были. Он навсегда останется в моём сердце. ❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍❍ ❝¿¿Какое ваше самое романтичное место?? ❞:)
