Our family is a beautiful rainbow. We are pink with brown spots and brown with pink spots.
We are just a family. I didn’t “rescue” anyone-we gave each other gifts. I was given the incredible gift of love and diversity, and they got a family who loves them and can appreciate them. Just like all families, each individual brings something different to the whole. My first son is empathetic, my second son is a great athlete and my daughter is beautiful and caring.
It’s not about surviving being black, It is about realizing how wonderful it is to be of African heritage and how wonderful it is to be of Scottish heritage. I tell my daughter how beautiful she is while I put on my makeup and tell her how lucky she is to have such gorgeous mahogany skin.
She understands this is just one of the the many joys of being black. Anyone who can’t see that is just not looking.
And no disrespect Chris Rock- She does have “Good Hair”. It is as beautiful as the rest of her.
