THREAD: The Disgusting Culture of Self-Racism in our Own Homes.

“Don’t drink tea - you’ll turn black.”

“Don’t go in the sun. You’ll darken and no one will marry you.”

“Wash your face with milk to become whiter.”

A True Story.

An acquaintance once told me a story:

She says, “I once walked in on a friend crying in the bathroom. She had cream all over her face, hands and neck. Different products. She was about 10 years old. She was trying to wash the color of her skin away.”

At ten years old, this girl felt so ugly because of her skin color that she felt the need to apply creams.

And who convinced her of this? Not a police officer or any troll hiding behind a screen on the internet.

No. It was her own family. Her own relatives. Her own blood.
