"So what if you're black, it's what's inside that matters"
You think you’re being nice but really you’re just insulting me.
You say it like my inner beauty makes up for lack of outer beauty.
I find beauty in the blackness of my skin.
I find beauty in the way it melts into the shadow in the dark and the way it radiates light in the sun.
I find beauty in the fullness of my lips and my gravity defying hair.
I love the blackness of my skin so go away, for your pity is misplaced.
