We asked our Instagram followers to complete the phrase “My dark skin is…” and we were overwhelmed and surprised at the responses we got. Its safe to say that, in spite of all the adversity black people have faced in 2016, we are still #blackandproud. How black people manage to be so resilient and so robust, we can’t tell for sure. But maybe, it’s in our SKIN.
Here are some of our favorite responses:
“Its exuberance is powerful and Its boldness is gold! ?”
“The gateway to a majestically kingdom where even mighty warriors are subdued. A place away from the turmoil and disaster, a place of eternal refuge”
“Absolute perfection and Everything that everyone else wish they could have”
“Everlasting truth, of our youth.”
“A melanated wonder soaked in sweet sweet Honey”
“A mixture of melanin and goddess!!”
“Its exuberance is powerful and Its boldness is gold!”
“Sometimes an unfortunate roadblock, but a personal trait I’m loving & taking pride in, more & more each day.”
“Resilience and magic”
“Black magic mixed with miracles”
“Only on my forehead chin and butt. I just wish I was one tone whatever tone I don’t care but evenly toned ?”
“God’s BEST creation!”
