Dear EVERYBODY!

Dear White People

I'm not an animal, so don't touch my hair
#BlackLivesMatter isn't equivalent to the KKK
Just because you have a black friend doesn't mean you can't be racist
Not all black and brown people are illiterate hood rats
Yes, white privilege does exist
Immigrants can't steal jobs you never had
Your people were once immigrants
I'm more than just my skin tone

Dear Black People,
We are colored
We are beautiful
We are intelligent
We are powerful
We are capable
Society doesn't tell us who we are, nor the media. We come from overcomers, the definition of perseverance and strength. We will not accept anything less than ourselves. Because our color is beautiful 💯💪🏽
