Que tal peeps!

WARNING! This video may be sensitive to some ppl.

This video to me was very interesting. I live how they spoke about being a darker skin tone in all races not just African American. Honestly, every where some one deals with the societal issues of having darker skin. I know in my family we are mixed in come in all shades, so within the family I never seen colorism. But outside I was often questioned how could mi abulea be mi abulea since she is Mexican and I have a deeper complexion (even though she is a darker Mexican woman). Or why my cousins and I look a like facial wise but are different shades of brown or why I had long wavy hair with deep brown skin and my cousin had coil like short hair but she was toffee colored. Outside of our home my family and I felt with this issues. I remember someone thought I was Eastern Indian when I was in college. They could not understand why I had long hair and how I got into a private college. They said Indian kids were smart so I must be Indian not African-American. When I told them I identified as a Black Latina then that really confused them. But even people who are from Latino community or Asian community deal with these light skin vs dark skin issues. May ppl don't know this. But you see skin whiting creams advertised in Africa, Asian, and now it's trending in America! Kpop I love but they do uphold light skin and even still in American culture. Personally, as the new generation coming up we need to learn from the mistakes of the older generation. Colorism is one thing we need to end. A person's character should not be based upon the tone of their skin, but the actual person.

I'm tagging all my peeps cuz I think yall can handle this video. If not your cup of tea sorry in advance.

This video is very very very true. I personally am really white, but I live in Rhode Island in a relatively Puerto Rican, Columbian and African American city, and even the dark kids make fun of other darker kids. Im also made fun of for being white as I was the ONLY 'white' person in my class at all. I remember there was this really dark kid in class and one day kids said 'Hey Steff' (that's my name) 'Ambdoul is your slave and you're the slave master' Like WTF. That really irritated me to the point because it was rude towards me and the kid. Another time on a feild trip we passed big fields and one of the girls said 'Hey Ambdoul look its your plantation' and everyone laughed except me and my friends. Because me personally being the only 'white' person knows how it feels to be discriminated against for being light skinned. But I'm sorry. NOBODY should go up to someone and tell them they found their plantation, that's plain out disrespectful and disgusting for the person to even say. 'White' people also get hate, I'm French, Canadian, Native American and Chinese. The kids in my class won't shut up its either I get good grades only because I'm white or I'm stereotyped into the classic white person 'nerdy' type and it truly sucks and hurts to constantly be called names. So I understand.

This made me cry a bit. I'm light, my sister is a darker brown, since we're mixed race babies, and I can't think of having her go through all that discrimination for her skin tone, which honestly, I find very attractive and beautiful. I see darker tones of skin as a symbol of strength and resilience even from a young age, because I'm exposed to beautiful people of colour with hearts of gold almost everyday where I live, my dad included.

I love my blended family. We are like Cold Stone Creamery - just toss in a little bit of this and this and ๐ŸŽ‰poof๐ŸŽ‰ a brand new flavor for your ear. We come in every shade and hair texture. And we love each other like mad. We just want crawfish and zydeco for a bon temp fais do do (good time party). We are first and foremost as all people, beings. We respect and love each other they way beings should - there is only one race - human. We all learned that in Junior High. ๐Ÿ‘ฌ๐Ÿ‘ญ๐Ÿ‘ซUnity. ๐Ÿ’™ Love. โœŒ Peace. @baekyeol27 Wow. SMDH. And we keep saying this generation is different. What are we really sending kids to school for? We aren't showing them the truth and how to be better versions of themselves; how to understand and decipher the 'isms and eliminate 'isms. Saddened to read you had to experience that...maybe the Universe allowed that in your space to use you as an agent for change. Props to you for knowing that what they were saying to you was hurtful and unkind and improper. We will make a difference. Namastรจ.
