I wish I could view my kids through the eyes of another race to see how they see them.
When we are abroad the attention they get is ridiculous. I’ve had someone take out a selfie stick and lean in to take a picture without permission. I’ve had someone pull back the hood of the buggy and kneel beside it to take a picture, again without permission. I could go on but I think you get the picture.
Are my kids the only black kids that get this sort of attention abroad? Aren’t black kids worldwide? Sometimes I go into defence mode and other times I’m confused thinking is this negative or positive attention? Either way there is no denying that black is beautiful and as they say melanin is popping!
