Je regarde ma peau et je pense à ce que je suis, je touche mes cheveux et je me demande ce que je suis. Autour de moi plusieurs types de personnes; des militants pro Afrique, des assimilés, et beaucoup de nuances entre ces deux opposés.
J’aime ce que je suis autant que j’aime ce que les autres sont, mais souvent je me demande pourquoi est ce que nous les noirs sommes si durs avec nos semblables. Je repense au regard surpris de cette jeune femme noire lorsque j’ai répondu “oui” après qu’elle m’ait demandé si je pouvais être avec un homme très noir. Je pense également aux réflexions telles que “tu ne vas pas te coiffer?” alors que je prends du temps pour mes cheveux, comme si garder ses cheveux naturels était une chose étrange. Je pense enfin à cette obsession pour le teint clair, au point ou même des gens qui affirment et clament leur identité noire utilisent des produits éclaircissant… je ne dis rien mais je vois tout mes amis.
Je ne juge pas, éclaircissez vous la peau si cela vous plaît, faites vous tissages si vous vous trouvez plus jolies avec, défrisez vos cheveux si c’est votre style. Nous sommes libres de nos choix, mais ne dénigrez pas ce que Dieu à crée et ne pensez pas que vous critères de beauté sont universels. Teint clair, teint chocolat, teint noir charbon sont tous synonymes de beauté.

I look at my skin and think about who I am, I touch my hair and I wonder what I am. Around me several different kinds of people; pro Africa activists, assimilated, and a lot of shades between these two opposites.
I love what I am as much as I love what the others are, but I often wonder why we black people are so hard with ourselves. I think about this surprised glance I had from a black woman when I answered “yes” after she asked if I could be in a relationship with a very dark skin man. I also think about these remarks like “you won’t do you hair?” whereas I take time to style it, like if it was a strange thing to stay with natural hair. Then, I think about this obsession for fair skins, to the point where even people who claim their black identity use skin lighteners … I don’t say anything but I see everything my friends.
I don’t judge, lighten your skin if you like it, do your hair extensions if you think you are more beautiful with, relax your hair if it is your style. We are free to make our choices, but don’t denigrate what God created and don’t think that your beauty standards are universal. Fair skin tone, chocolate skin tone and charcoal skin tone means beauty.
