If i were to choose my skin color again, i would definitely choose to be black. Indeed, black is beautiful and unique.
Honestly, i admire black people anytime i see them and i am so proud to move around as a black woman. Sometimes, people have a whole lot to say about dark skinned individuals and most times they even make funny statements like “Don’t you think you should touch your skin a little” “You might use your dark skin to touch me and it might stain my white attire” “Your black is dirty and it needs a little touch” “I could get you a toning cream to lighten up your skin you know”. Honestly, if you are not careful, you might yield to the words they say and probably think something is wrong with being BLACK.
In a world were people are always quick to judging someone and probably make you feel unworthy for your skin type, you need an extra determination and self love to still believe there is nothing wrong with you and you can also be regarded as Unique.
Who said you need to tone up to measure up?
Who told you that toning your skin would make the world not find another defect about you?
Can’t you see how amazing you look?
Why do you have to listen to a world that never stops talking and choose to tamper with your amazingly unique outlook?
Black is unique and as a matter of fact very cheap to maintain.
Black is pride
Black is distinct
Black is beautiful
Black is power
Black is natural
Black is epic
You see ugliness, i see uniqueness.
You see weakness, i see power
You see timidity, i see strength
You see complexion, i see beauty
You see uncleanliness, i see realness
You see low self esteem, i see self love
You see a lady who cannot take care of herself, i see a woman who loves herself regardless of her skin color
She knows she’s not limited by her skin color
she’s aware that society does not define her.
How you see her, does not count because she knows she counts.
STOP THE HATE
STOP THE HATEFUL WORDS
STOP THE DOWNGRADING
STOP THE DISCRIMINATION
STOP THE SIDELINING
STOP THE HURT
STOP THE TEARS
We are blacks not aliens.
BLACK IS EPIC.
