One's superiority must not be based on their skin tone. A person isn't superior because he/she has a fair skin and a person with darker skin shouldn't be treated as inferiors. We should be aware that colorism is an issue that everyone must be concerned of. A lot of people suffer from this, and not all of them have the courage to speak up. And as a person who experienced this predominant issue, I can say that it is not a joke. We must learn to appreciate and let everyone treat each other equally. Discrimination based on skin color is an issue that must stop. 

I am a girl who is a morena or a person who has a dark skin. I am a victim and a witness of this issue. When I was a kid, I used to hear words from my relatives and few classmates/schoolmates that they did not like my skin color. They would always ask, "bakit ang itim mo?" or "ang itim ng batang are a!" in an insulting way, of course. Until now, I would hear these phrases, not just from them but also from strangers and some people that I know. Some of them would recommend me to buy products that would "help" me to have a whiter skin, which I did not consider at all. Yes, I lost confidence for that reason. I cried. I wouldn't want to be included in pictures. I hated the way I looked like. I would only smile at them forcefully.

You see, colorism has a big impact in oneself. It can cause a lot of things, whether it be losing confidence, hating the way they look like, and worse, causing this to mental health. All of us has its own skin color and all of us are beautiful. Let's stop colorism. Let's make each other feel comfortable of their own skin. Let's support each other's back. Let's encourage everyone to terminate this fair skin superiority. Colorism is not a joke. Victims of this issue shouldn't be ignored. They must be heard. So please, LET'S TERMINATE THIS ISSUE NOW!
