Melanin.

They say "folks get brown in the sunshine." Black is not a singular shade, the hues are infinite.

I'm always in awe that I possess this beautiful gift. I celebrate the men and women who share this same gift with me.

How could something so beautiful is seen as not being good enough because of European standards?

God bless melanin.
