Today I choose to be black.
I think that’s quite a sentence, given the current state of the world. When you’re born, you don’t get a form to fill in to decide your ethnicity, skin colour or gender. You don’t get to say you’ll grow up to romantically love the members of the opposite gender to you. This is the reason I believe everyone should be treated as equal. It’s not a choice, and even if it was, why is it OUR business? Everyone deserves kindness.
Still, today I choose to be black to once again celebrate the Lelutka Nuri head, and the Glam Affair skintones that have been increased for extra black tones, and they’re all beautiful with a different undertone. I still believe more work needs to be done to incorporate more tones, much like the RL makeup industry SL seems to be lacking.
Make it a beautiful day, Spoonies. You deserve it. xoxo
