Maybe I Just didn’t know ….

Ok maybe my parents protected me too much. or maybe I just was blind to what was going on while growing up. Or maybe I was just not letting it get under my skin by the racist things that was said because I thought of it as a joke because i thought no one would really say something that fucked up to hurt my feelings. Or maybe I was around the right people at the time. All I know is growing up(around all kinds of people from different backgrounds and colors) I never worried about getting arrested or shot down or harmed by anybody let alone the police because my skin is a couple shades darker than the other kids around me. I mean really although I was the only black kid in a lot of my classes it NEVER bothered me or anybody else around me. I mean I got joked on more for sounding like a little white girl than actually being a black kid. People liked me because I was just a nice kid, fuck my color. Maybe because I was surrounded by people that was more like “what do you mean she can’t because she’s black” than “oh you can’t because your black”. Like seriously everyone I hung around had to be freakin’ color blind or something because it was NEVER about color but it was ALWAYS about whether you was nice or not. I guess now it’s hurts to know that there’s not a lot of people like that anymore. Your race matters to them when your walking up to shake their hand or wave to them across the room.
Honestly I just miss the feeling of not worrying about my color , I miss not having to worry about my brothers because they get stopped/picked with a lot because of their color , I miss feeling safe , I miss my color blind childhood.

fucknoselfhate:

friendly reminders:

dark skin girls can be mixed
dark skin girls can have type 3 hair
light skin girls aren’t always mixed
light skin girls can have type 4 hair
just because they are dark skin doesn’t mean they are rude, violent, ghetto or ratchet
Just because they are light skin doesn’t mean they’re weak, stuck up, or rude.
