The skin your in.
Growing up I always heard jokes about the way that people look. Your momma so black, Your so ugly, and such all coming from someone who looked just like the victim they were taunting. I don't even remember looking into the mirror to really examine or care about my appearance until I was 14 years old. Before then I never cared about my looks. This was 9th grade when classmates would taunt me for my complexion or my large nose, being too short and skinny. It's sad that we are judged by the characteristics that make us who we are. But Why? Why do we feel the need to judge others by the way that they look and not put as much emphasis on ones attitude or character. Are we really that shallow. I guess the answer is yes. The first thing that is known of a person is what we see outward. In most cases we don't get to know someones personality until after we feel that they are even worthy of our time. As I matured I truly understand the meaning behind sayings like everything that glitters isn't gold and don't judge a book by it's cover. Because they prettiest people can be the most dysfunctional and cruel individuals. I'm not saying that attractive people are bad, I just think before we dismiss someone because of the way that "WE" feel they look, we need to take the time to get to know someones heart first. Everything else should be secondary or better yet a non mother fucking factor! Peace & Love Jewell
