Black Skin Collection

“Be comfortable in your black skin. If someone finds a threat in it, then they should visit their psychologist.”

This quote has become quite popular in the Black Community. Thank you. So, I’m making interesting items available for sale SHOP: www.mittaxinindlu.store

—-BACK STORY—-

I wrote this quote at a time when there was a particular woman who just could’t stand my Blackness. She even hated the half blackness in my mixed-race child.

In my existence, I have lived a life of zero discrimination. I have dated other races. Had a child with a white person. Had friends from different parts of the world. Loved and embraced foreigners. People of different religions, races, genders, and dis/abilities. I have many gay friends.

My lifestyle is in itself very inclusive.

Now, I have paid a price for mixing with others. I have been ridiculed for mixing with people of different origins, beliefs, or nationalities. But, I took it all in because I am not ashamed to be seen with people who are different from me.

People’s differences do not intimidate nor offend me.

So, when I experienced such a discriminatory behaviour from that woman, I knew that it was her psychological status that was the problem, and not my blackness.
