For Women Who Want The Ballerific Life!
This weekend I went to Eastern Market (an outdoor flea market in DC) and I got sunburn on the back of my neck and nose. It hurts like hell. I get it often, so I brought some aloe and have it sitting on my desk. So one of my white coworkers walks by and asks why I have it. I told her because I got sunburn. This heifer says o damn I didn’t know black ppl could get sunburn. I said yes, I have skin just like yours. She turned pink and walked away. I often have to educate the ppl in my office of our hair textures about weaves, about films, and I am getting sick of it, Like why are they so insensitive sometimes. I know she is not racist, but she often shows how they serotypes other races, instead of just goggling it, LOL. I feel bad because now every time I walk by her desk she apologizes. But the s*** is getting old. And once I hip her to something she takes it and runs with it. But in the process f**** it all up. I told her the other day to say YOLO. Now she won’t stop ugh! Sorry just needed to vent!
I am black..dark skin and tan not by choice..everytime I say that folks give me the side eye..i love to lay in the sun and believe it or not get darker.

JustMe said:Tan as in, skin changes or tan as in laying out in the sun / tanning bed ?
