Has EP completely flipped out tonight or what? <br />

Did your dad actually say to you that he hates your skin color? I doubt that. He might have said that you need to go outside and get some vitamin D or something to keep you from sitting around the house. What father would tell his daughter that he hates their skin color? That doesn't make sense.

hes been drilling it thru my head thoughout my whole childhood

i love the sun but it works a lil bit.. i eat alot of citrus fruits.. i live in grey cloudy chicago.. gloomy everyday

Best Answer

I'm very familiar with Chicago. I grew up there and so did my lovely, gorgeous, light skinned, black wife. Don't worry about your dad. Some people just have perception problems when it comes to the color of love. You are fine just the way you are.

Best Answer

I agree with King, you are perfect just as you are! Love the skin you are in!

Best Answer

MADW, I ignore people who make comments about my skin tone. I have had people make comments about my height (5'11") as well as comments from my mother about my large breast size. There is nothing I can do about any of these things and even if I could, I wouldn't. I am made the way God wanted me made and if that is not good enough for some people, well then that's too bad for them. I own no shame just because someone else is shameful.

So they're basically trying to pressure you into making yourself more prone to getting Cancer? Sometimes parents are stupid and sadly there's not much you can do to about it. The only thing you can do is realize that your skin color is not something you have a lot of control over. You are still a human and learning to accept yourself is the first step in not needing approval from others. It's hard when a parent is not accepting; you just have to remember they are human and they have flaws too.

That's ignorant. Don't listen to your dad about your skin color, simply call him out on it. There is nothing wrong with being lighter skinned or darker skinned than anyone in your family, it just sounds racist. Sit down with him if you haven't already and tell him that your skin color won't change so he's just going to have to accept it.<br />
<br />
Do not tan, do not fake bake, do not try any cosmetic surgery to get yourself the way your dad wants you to look. This is how Michael Jackson got the way he did. His father hated how dark skinned he was and he went crazy. <br />
<br />
Don't ever think that you need to change yourself for someone else. He just needs to accept the fact that you are lighter skinned and you know what, that's totally okay.
