I don’t care whether you’re from Kazakhstan or Malaysia, China or India, whether you live in Europe or America or Africa. If someone tells you that you are worth less than them, look them in the eye and laugh.
We have the richest history, the most beautiful art, the least explored history.
We built and destroyed empires, survived war and revolution. We have destroyed stereotypes, created music, lived our lives to the fullest we can with oppression and racism lurking around every corner.
We have the power to over throw the world and change society, and we must not, can not, let the world dim that flame we have inside us. We must shed those western ideals of pale skin, high bridges noses and big eyes.
Our skin represents the way we have can change, a beauty, our noses won’t break so easy in a fist fight, our eyes, keep the sand from entering during a sand storm.
They would have broken, had they faced what we must fight everyday. Asian girls, you are beautiful, do not let them decide what is beauty. Decide for yourselves, make the decision to look in the mirror and see a beautiful person. All of you.
