i don’t want to live in a colorless world. if white people [genetics] can get be glorified, can be the norm, can be the societal standard of beauty, can be the ruler, can be what’s sought after (for centuries), how can i be wrong for wanting the paradigm shift to happen. i am not wrong for believing that my melanin should be appreciated & loved universally, not to shame another race, but to UPLIFT my own. i am not wrong for wanting the truth about the DEEEEEP suffering of people of color to be understood, not to erase the history but to change it. i want for people EVERYWHERE to look back at the timeline and celebrate the magnifigance of people of color because of the beauty that prevailed through the culture, despite centuries of oppression. this is what i have finally been able to admit to myself after years of subtle brainwashing. i have realized that living in a colorless world and eradicating race is synonymous with silencing black excellence.
