Ok so @cocoxluxury asked the most amazing question that people skip over when they inquire about my vitiligo.
What are my experiences being that I've lived through 3 different stages of a human being.
I've been treated different based on my skin complexion, although having Vitiligo wasn't easy people treated me like I had a contagious disease.
Now with me being lighter, I get different shit depending on the ethnicity of the person in front of me.
Many Asian people have come up and caressed my skin (1st of all, if you ever see me in person please don't do that) it's just weird lol
They ask me if I'm gonna be all white, I respond Yes their response "Lucky You" 🤔
Many Caucasian people engage with me and ask if I'm Mixed? and sometimes even begin to name a couple ethnicities they think I could be mixed with. My response "I'm black" them: oh well you're so pretty, you look so exotic 🤔
Hispanic people, no lie I can be with my noticeably black family or friends and they will speak English to them but speak Spanish to me. They think I look like them. Lol 🤔 Some black men say they wanna date me because
I don't look all the way black.🥊🥊 A lot of times people question if my kids and family is really my family because I don't look like them. 😢
DON'T GET IT TWISTED, I GET SO MUCH LOVE, SUPPORT AND POSITIVITY FROM ALL ETHNICITES and I'm grateful for all of it. Not every encounter I've had is bad, not everyone is ignorant to my skin condition but they are all different for me. I wish skin complexion didn't matter so much when engaging with other humans. It should be all love no matter how light or dark a person is.
