Yes, When I was younger I got bullied. People made fun of me because I was really dark and really tall. And as a result I use to brag a lot.
They’d be like “You black as hell” “You so black ugh”
Compare me to any black dog they saw walking by.
And I’d be like “Yeah well thats because I was in Jamaica on vacation for winter break while you were here freezing, where were you?” “Yeah well I was in miami at the Ritz Carlton, where were you?”
some people think its funny.. but you don’t know how many people there are out there HURTING because they just want to be beautiful… because they were told that light skin was beautiful.. because they see it EVERYWHERE that the lighter the better.
Its bad enough that racism is something that even exists .. but racism within your own race? how DUMB is that?
I didn’t always love my complexion.. Who likes being made fun of. But I learned and my mother taught me to love myself.. and as i grew up I stopped caring about those ignorant comments.
I’m more than proud to be the complexion i am .. don’t try to fit in.. STAND OUT.
