Ok so I guess I was inspired to write this because of my friend Drea’s status on facebook about things we hated about ourselves growing up, I believe. This topic just had me really thinking.
I came to a debate of:
In the “Black” world being skinny is looked down upon a lot of times. If you don’t have alot of “meat” on the bones or a big booty, you are not accepted a lot of times. Growing up, I went through a lot being a skinny girl, I was not the girl that got her crush….*tear*, but that’s life and all I can say is “look at me now”. If I flip the script and you look at the “White” world, skinny is the way to go, thick white girls are looked down upon, like totally.
I am just trying to figure out how it is that by just being a different race, different sizes are acceptable and unacceptable?
