    I have beautiful brown skin. Not dark, not light but right in the middle. I used to catch a good amount of shade whenever I was with my light skinned friends. I wish we can all just agree that we’re all black, we come in all beautiful shades and we’ve all been made fun of for something. My husband is light-skinned and when he was growing up he was bullied for being light. So we’ve all had it bad.
