It's 2010 and this STILL Happens?

The level of greed and evilness(is that a word? haha) some people have completely disgusts and saddens me. I don't have much else to say about this article, but do some research on the salons you get your hair done at....you never know what kind of people own them. One more reason why I braid my own hair...

Excerpt from Article:
A New Jersey man from the West African nation of Togo is behind bars after forcing at least 20 women to work without pay in hair braiding salons. According to the Associated Press, 47-year-old Lassissi Afolabi, a citizen of the Togolese Republic, was sentenced to more than 24 years in prison after he admitted to smuggling Togolese women and girls into the U.S. from 2002 through 2007 and making the young women, in effect, modern day slaves at hair salons throughout Newark and East Orange, NJ.

I continue to pray everyday for those less fortunate then us. I pray they have strength to get through the hard times..and I have hope that better days will come.
If you think that your life is bad right now.....read/watch the news and see what others in the world have to live and deal with....

Thanks sis for passing this on
