Uplift One Another

Something I see too often. Black people talking down on other black people. 

I do not understand how an entire race can be screaming for social and racial equality, yet, hate their “own” people.

My husband is a black man [obviously] and our son is biracial [again, obviously], and we get called out of our name over and over online. Do you know who it is by ? Black people. My husband gets more hate from other black people than any white people we ever come across. 

So I want to know, how can an entire race want social and racial equality from other races, yet they can’t even love other people of color or themselves ? 

This same post could go for women. I see women [no matter their race] talking down on each other all the time. 

We ALL need to build one another up, stop breaking each other down. Love yourself and then love others. 

I do not want my son growing up thinking he has to hate one side of himself. Does he choose to love the black side, or does he choose to love the white side ? I do not want to have to explain to my young child these things. I want him to love and be loved, like everyone should be. We WILL teach him to love himself first and then exude that love onto others. 

Everyone should be treated equally, we all deserve love. We should not have to ask for it.

  1. So well put! Our two oldest girls are thai and Irish/Scottish….beautiful almond eyes and red tinted curly dark hair. The oldest of the two talked terribly about her Asian heritage for years of her youth…and she got it from her mother, who was born in Thailand. It broke my heart. I’m so thankful she has grown out of it, her mother has not.

    1. I truly wish people could see that until they love themselves, and their heritage, others will not love them. If I walked around hating myself others would not love me, because I would be unreachable in the aspect of acceptance and love.
