I had an encounter with a “racist” on Facebook today. I put the word racist in quotations because I find that a lot of these keyboard racists are just that, KEYBOARD racists. A lot of them would not have the guts to say the things they say online to someone in real life. These types of people used to upset me but then I realized that the only person that they are hurting are themselves. Their words aren’t physically hurting me. They are letting thousands of eyes see how ignorant they are and probably disappointing those who don’t share their idiotic views. Here’s how I responded today:
I refuse to let things like this bother me. I have learned to love the skin I’m in. My black is beautiful and no one will convince me otherwise!
