Dead Toubab Clothes


Ever wonder what happens to all those clothes you donate to the poor people of Africa?  This is it.  They are sold in the market.  The people want "Western" clothes, and they are free/cheap to the seller, so they are less expensive than going to buy cloth and taking that to the tailor.  The locals call them "dead toubab clothes", because they can't imagine people getting rid of nice clothes like this unless the owner had died.
