maybe people would pay more attention to me if i had pretty light skin and less ugly facial hair and i was thin and beautiful... oh well

hello i am hearing self hate involving racism and i just wanna say that it hurts my heart so fucking much, but this isnt about me right now. meera, you are fucking BEAUTIFUL. on the outside and on the inside. i dont give a FUCK what the white standards for beauty say, you are 100% gorgeous. and i hope you realize that soon, bc its not enough for me to tell you that. you have to know it too.

i grew up HATING my skin color. hated my eyes because they were too fuckin small. hated my flat nose. i so badly wanted to be lighter, more white passing. and all of that just made me feel so fuckin terrible about my race. im not telling you this to make this about me, im telling you this to let you know i can relate.

PLEASE please please learn to love yourself. learn to love being brown. celebrate it. when white people and even other poc w internalized racism try to push you down, dont let them.

but if you are unable to celebrate yourself at this moment, turn to your brown siblings who can celebrate with you and help you. and turn to the ones who are struggling just like you and let them know that theres a whole community of brown people ready to accept them.

this post isnt just for you meera. its for every brown person struggling to accept and love themselves.

im sorry if this post got ranty or long but i just. im just passionate about this. i dont know how else to put it, but i feel a lot of emotions about this topic.

Yesterday we had a little family get together for my one cousin who is leaving for college soon. It was a lot of fun because my almost three year old cousin was there. It sounds really weird, but I'm really grateful that she's around. I was the "baby" of the family for the first ten years of my life until she came along and changed everything for the better in my opinion. It’s really cool to see her logic in things and how she picks up on everything so fast. When we were playing hide and seek, she’d always cover her eyes so that we “couldn’t see her.” For a while she was leading me around the house, and I showed her how to flip a light switch so that I didn’t have to keep doing it (as she was gravely concerned about ghosts if the room was dark), and she picked it up really fast and went around flipping all of the switches. I taught her how to say my name, and she could do it but continued to call me “Purple” instead. I’m just really glad that I get a chance to be the Tickle Monster and do all of the things that my family did to me when I was the baby. She makes me want kids someday. I love her so much.
