She Looks Like a Burnt Monkey.

Vineland, NJ.

Just one of the many comments I would get growing up in a predominately all-white Catholic School where I was the only black and dark skin girl in my class.

Keep the conversation going - comment and discuss with your thoughts

    SMH so sad. And you are absolutely gorgeous!!! I had a little girl point to me in the store and say monkey. Wonder what her parents are teaching her??? Hopefully one day this ends

    …you can imagine how many people may have been destroyed emotionally by comments like that. Hate/ignorance adds a vicious element to interpersonal relationships. The key is not to fall victim to it – you have to be higher without being arrogant…which is hard(easy)
