Bullies Harassing

Harassment can come in different forms. This behavior can make people feel uncomfortable or upset. I think it is also a form of bullying. People can be harassed for many different things.

When They See Us

Who are they? The white people? The Hispanic people? The black people? When they see us, they automatically stereotype us if a crime happened in the vicinity, we’re in… The police, THEY.

Fairy Tales

We all have a theory on how we will find love, get married and have kids. But it doesn’t always work out that way. I’ve heard this saying “If you want to hear GOD laugh, just tell him what you have planned.” I’ve heard so many stories of girls planning their weddings since they were […]

Colorism

I was watching my ratchet tv as usual on a Monday. As I am watching Love & Hip-Hop, I hear Spice say she wanted to change her complexion to have lighter skin. She seems to think black people with lighter skin are privileged. Changing the color of your skin will not change the fact that […]
