“I want to get rid of my yucky color skin”
Rachel Danhires

Please teach your beautiful son to love himself and why. Give him the survival tools he already needs to survive in this society. It’s important he knows about slavery and why it occurred, racism and why it exists, discrimination and why it still exists. Teach him why it’s taken so long for America to have its first Black president and why its such a great honor. Teach him about all of the other brown skin people who have made such tremenduous impacts in this world. Teach him the truth about life; teach him the importance of difference and not feeling ashamed because ther is none. Teach him and your youngest son the importance of them having each other’s back because they are brothers (period)!
