West Indian Thought: I really hope that this generation will be the one to stop promoting bleaching.. But first, we need to tackle colorism.

Stop cracking jokes and supporting vines about dark skinned ppl bleaching or hiding from the sun.

Stop requesting a “brownin” and ridiculing dark skinned women.

Understand that those who bleach are probably hurting and going thru some serious self hate.. They need healing, not shaming.

Idk about any other ethnic group.. I can only speak for mine. But we need to eradicate this bleaching thing. And to do that, we need to recognize the effects of colorism and do right by our people.

TBH, I'm still bitter from when american kids treated me like shit cuz im Jamaican

Im sure lots of people went thru a similar experience tho.. Being made fun of for ur culture only to have the same people love it years later. Like.. U were mocking my food and language and now u want me to teach u to cook jamaican food and whisper patois in ur ear? It sucks balls.
That’s probably why I don’t fw anyone from middle/high school. Shit makes my blood boil.
