    I'll be watching.

  2. "It is not what you look at that matters, it is what you see"' a quote from Henry David Thoreau. In others words I luv love love my dark skin. What other people think is irrelevant to me. Parents love your children and instill self esteem into them. I experience racism from all races yet the only person that can make me feel inferior is myself. Stand up people and love yourself. Don't let anyone bring you down!!!!

    Self esteem is the key to ending this type of inward and outward abuse! We must learn to love ourselves and instill it in our children…I'll be watching!!
