    Growling up in a majority white town and school, I began to hating my own skin because I don't feel like I'm black enough for my own culture. I don't like that certain things, I don't certain things that other black people do. And coming from a bad home, it didn't help my self esteem or my depression

    When an asian says something that is stereotypical about white or black people they are instantly called racist and hated but when some else is making fun of Asians it’s a perfect time to laugh.. I absolutely hate when this happens

    it makes my heart hurt that we cant just accept each other as human beings. when someone said they werent able to feel as beautiful as a fully white woman, it really hit. I'm a fully white girl and I dont feel comfortable or beautiful with myself. I'm not the skinny, bright blonde barbie girl, I'm the chunky girl and to hear other races- people in general say they wish they're something their not just to be accepted in society, isnt okay. we should be able to walk outside and meet a new race everyday, without out us or them being afraid of one another. all of us, as whites, blacks, Indians, hispanics, asians, need to ban together and grow bigger than what the past was and obliterate the racs stereotypes, because its just pushing a society farther and farther from each other. we really need to get our act together

    The only reason I wanted to be white, was because I was tired of black girls at school making fun of my natural hair. They would always call it nappy or told me that I needed to put a perm in it. I would purposefully wear box braids for months, because I knew that once I took out and the humidity hit, it would make my hair poof up again. I liked how white people's hair was always straight. I also wanted to be Hispanic because the guys who I had a crush on liked Hispanic women. As I got older, I wanted to be more black. I would get made fun of for how I enunciated my words. People thought I was white by the way I spoke. Now that I'm in my adult years, I'm proud to be in the skin I'm in.

    I'm actually white and these last few years I've been thinking "Damn I'll never be as beautiful as a black woman". You ladies are wonderful, your culture is amazing and yes, enviable.

    PS I'm not wishing to be black, I know you all go through things on the daily that I probably couldn't handle. I'm just saying non white people are incredibly attractive and so interesting and bad ass :) Its awful what some societies put you through

    Tell you what guys, love yourself for the way you are. We are all unique in every way. Different race, different gender, different religions, different DNA. It's amazing to know that you exist in this world filled with people you can be friends with. You are a specific person in this world with your own stories. Be happy with what you have and love yourself. You are so beautiful and people words shouldn't effect you. You are special. Be proud to have all these differences because you are important in this world and you are put here for a reason. 😊💕

      Why i bet it's gorgeous. Don't ever speak like that and always love yourself. Brown skin is beautiful. I don't know what's race you are but i am black and i have been lucky to have never really been judge for my skin majorly. Not saying it doesn't happen cause it does. I was just saying that because u feel so horrible for people with these views you are as good and worthy as any other white person. No race is higher than anyone. Your skin and everything about you is amazing and gorgeous and look in the mirror and tell yourself that everyday. Build up your confidence sweetie. Your amazing.

    For almost my entire life I wanted to be white. I knew I wanted to be an actress ever since I was around 8, but I’d never seen a black woman in movies, or back people in general in movies, so I believed it wasn’t possible. I’d learnt to hate myself because of the colour of my skin, wishing I’d never been born this way. I didn’t want to be seen as a black person who wouldn’t be able to get a job because of it, or be judged just because of how I look. It scared me. Now, I’ve learnt to I love my skin colour, and now that I see more black people in movies and portrayed in books and much more in the world, I’m more comfortable with who I am. I still have moments where I wish I could change it, but I couldn’t be more proud of the colour of my skin.♥️👩🏾

    When the first confession said “I wish I could just be white” tears started flowing. Like I felt that and its heartbreaking to know that minority’s feel this way about their skin color. Honestly, everybody at one point or another thought something along the lines of “why am i this color” and it just hits home because it’s actually a struggle we all have been through.

    I wish I weren't white. Not because I want to be tan or darker or anything like that. I'm not a white American, as I'm from Norway and I grew up with Norwegian culture, but at the end of the day, I feel like I don't really have that much culture. I just wish I'd be allow to be proud of the way my skin is, instead of being told that I should be 'ashamed for being white' due to what the European colonists did. I never talk about this as the friends I have are mostly poc, and I'll feel bad about what I say as I'm by proxi the one who's the most priveleged whether I'd like it or not. I hate feeling like this, but I can't feel proud of my skin anyways. I see pages on Instagram where people who are at least 1/4 Asian send in photos of themselves and they're told how beautiful they are related to ethnicity, which I fully support. I'm trying my best not to sound disrespectful, I just don't know how to say it all properly. In the end, it may be connected to the fact that I don't wanna be alive at all...

    I've never had a problem with my brown skin or my curly hair and I love myself as an individual, but I do not love black people because of all the pain they've caused me. I don't identify as black partially for that reason and the fact that I'm adopted and don't know my full ethnic background. I hate the fact that even the so-called black community expects you to be a certain way just because of that god awful label. I hate the hypocrisy of a community that's always crying about acceptance and representation doing the opposite whenever someone isn't what they expect.
    I hate the oppression of racism, colorism and all the labels and attempts to box people into limited minds. I can't wait until the day comes that I am truly free.

    i'm half asian and half white. I had problem with that in elementary school (they tagged me Chinese. In negative way. I'm half Korean though) which made me a very shy and fragile child. I didn't communicate with my Asian family much but my white family. I was always treated worse than my siblings because of being shy, calm and restrained (typical asian traits that worked in my place). My white uncle had some talk with my grandma about my mixed origin. He doesn't look in my eyes to the present day.

    I don't know if this happened to you as well but I remember so clearly that when I went to elementary school I never asked myself why this person had specific characteristics and why this other person had others (e.g. being white/black, christian/muslim). I live in Italy so we're predominately white but I had classmates from Eastern Europe, Brazil and Morocco and I never ever saw them diffently. And I recall never understanding my parents' prejudices about them because to me they were the same as me. I think that we should learn this from children...

  • Shannon& Jason Kuether 03/17/09

    "Desirable as a White woman" is a horrible way to feel about yourself😢. As a White Woman I can tell you wholeheartedly that being white or a White woman is NOT cracked up to what it is made seem like. Caucasians get flak like every other race does on Earth. Yes the flak we get isn't QUITE AS MUCH other races but it's still there, if you were a white person you might not get treated the way other races do but you will STILL have the feeling you have now as the race you are.
    I'm not trying to sound like im trying to make it seem like white people get all this negative towards us like other races because I SURE IN HELL AM NOT!! I am just being honest and saying it REALLY is not this great amazing thing to be white cause A LOT of people hate white people as a whole because of what our ancestors did decades ago or what some white people are doing thesr days and it DOES NOT feel good to be lumped into a whole cause of what a percentage of whites have done to other races. I'm just being honest and saying how I feel because other races say they DO NOT want to be lumped in with all the bad people in their race but in the same breath will lump white people into a whole.

    It's intriguing to me that in all the commentary rhetoric below that I've read so far, I have yet to see anything mentioned at all about Asians and Asian/American racism.
    In the U.S., views toward Asians are translated differently than most other ethnicities. Most people I think would say that Asians only hear positive racial stereotyping. It may be true to an extent, but it also unintentionally hides a lot of the negative. Growing up as an American Asian halfsie, I was never really gave thought to my ethnic heritage until high school. But to my friends, I quickly became part of the “Asian” crowd. All and any jokes or cracks made about Asians being smarter than everyone else, always being good at math, being made of rice, etc. were directed at me just as often as full Asians. I didn't mind it at all, and found it funny most times. But as years went by I began to feel pressure from such comments to “fit” the Asian mold. If I ever did something “unasian” or say something unasian like “I don't like seafood” people always questioned my tastes, likes or dislikes with the comeback “why not?! your Asian aren't you? ”
    I've felt like my caucasian side is totally invisible.
    I can relate to how the mixed girl in the video feels.
    When i'm visiting family or friends in Asia, it's as if all they can see is the caucasian blood in me. The fact that I am not full Asian gets in the way of me being fully accepted a lot of the time. And critical comments can be harsh and frank since that's culturally acceptable in some Asian countries.
    Bottom line-even though i'm personally very comfortable and in love with my ethnicity mix, on a strictly race basis, I feel like I never entirely belong to either world and yet am never seen for both at the same time either.
    Where do the halfsies and the mixes go? What is our “race”?

    This is so sad. I feel so lucky for living in a diverse area that isn't violent against Asians. And I would never know what it's like hating having dark skin because I'm pale. All shades of skin are beautiful and tell a story, of love, of humanity, of culture, and history. That's all I can ever say, I have no idea what it's like to be any other "race" to be any other color, to have even a little darker skin. And I know that, but everyone must learn to come to terms with something about themselves.

    idk why these ppl think being white is perfection. I mean there are plenty white girls/boys that aren't the best in looks. Forget about looks for a second and just embrace who you are. You can't change it and if you keep gawking over how you will never be as beautiful as another race then you will never find urself beautiful and you live continue to live life thinking ur ugly when rlly ur not.

    Somebody for who i tried to be the best version of myself and do my best, one day told me "I would not want to have kids with dark hair"
    - I got dark hair, Brown eyes... Not typical in my country. He is blonde. And he prefer blonde girls.
    So, in his eyes i will always be worthless and not good enough. And i dont deserve to have family with someone like him.
    And he was my perfect one... His words destroyed me. I think about it every single day, how worthless i was for him. I love my type of beauty but every single day im afraid that one day, i will be again trated like that...
    And today, he have two kids with light skin, blonde hair and blue eyes...

    I’m white, but sometimes I hate it because I get reminded daily of what my race did to people of color. I am not proud being white and if I could change I would, but I cannot. I cannot go back in the past and stop slavery and if I could I would, but it is impossible.

    I'm white and I had friends that were of darker colour that made me feel so bad for my heritage and would call me names in their native language that I considered quitting my favourite sport.

    Why can’t we all just be identified as Americans. We seem to be too distracted by the fact of beingwhite, black, Latino, Indian, Asian, etc. We forget who we truly are which is and will always be Americans. We get so caught up in race we forget the most important thing about us and which unifies us all which that we our first and foremost Americans. I think that us putting Race/Nationality is one of the biggest or maybe the biggest reason for the racial divide in this country.

      Tell that to members of the Apache, Arapaho, Cheyenne
      Comanche, Kiowa, and various indigenous tribes for they are the original inhabitants of this land known as America.
