Watch What This Mom Does When She Discovers Her Little Girl Is Being Teased For Her Dark Skin

A few days ago I wrote a post entitled, Telling Dark Skin Women They Are Beautiful Is Not the Answer to Colorism and I got a LOT of flack for it. But I stand by it. Black Women are more than beautiful, so when we discuss colorism, telling us we’re beautiful really doesn’t combat the issue. Children, however, are a different story. Children, especially in this day and age, need all the validation they can get. I know I surely needed it when I was growing up.

That’s why this mom’s response to her daughter being teased about her skin color is so incredibly moving. Get the tissues out, folks!

  • the other day on the bus, my kiddo was being teased about her dark brown skin. it wasn’t the first time and it won’t be the last. this morning we did a little self-love exercise. i wrote some positive things on sticky notes and had her stick them to her mirror one at a time while reading them and saying “i am.” my daughter is sensitive and i love that about her. as we raise her, we are doing our absolute best to make sure that her sensitivity is matched with confidence and self-pride. i didn’t have anyone doing this with me when i was growing up—and i hope it makes a difference as she goes through things that may be hurtful, difficult, and uncomfortable. our children are our reflection. we must do our best to demonstrate greatness and show up for them.
