As someone of Indian ethnicity myself, I often heard advice from my older relatives telling me not to go out into the sun for fear of getting too dark. I saw my grandmother use Fair & Lovely and cover her face with powder to look fairer. When relatives told me that I had gotten ‘darker’ from being in the sun too much, I always used to wonder why that was something to be ashamed of; something to worry about.
While it is true that black people can be prejudiced towards white people, they cannot be racist towards them.
The journey to self-discovery is a long one; one that most people haven’t even begun to encounter yet.
Every so often you come across someone who seems to have it all. This might be an issue among guys too, but I know that amongst girls this is much too common. There’s always that girl that’s more gorgeous, richer, smarter, cooler, and has the guy you’ve been crushing on in the palm of their hand.
