Red Hair?

People are always asking me, "Why do you keep your hair red?" Actually, there IS a reason! 
I was bullied about many things during my school years, and some of the bullying was about my skin color. Growing up, whenever I wore ANY bright colors, especially red, I was bullied. I was told, "you're too dark to wear bright colors!" Or more pointedly, "dark-skinned girls shouldn't wear reds, oranges, or yellows." "Pink? NEVER!" 
As a result, I went through a period of wearing all black (Goth). My outlook became very dark for awhile. Then one day, I finally heard what my mom and a few others had told me all along, that I should wear whatever I pleased, and if YOU like those colors, never let anyone else tell you that you can't wear it. YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL with or without the colors!  So... I wear my favorite - red - just to let 'em know! I LOVE ME and feel great wearing any color. Also, I want other girls to know that ANY COLOR goes great with 'CHOCOLATE!'

    The color of you skin, hair, eyes, or cloths does not matter. It is stupid people that treat people different for things like that. My granddaughter gets bullied for being quiet and different (being herself). I am happy and proud of you for realizing these things and standing up for yourself and helping others realize the same thing you learned. You come from a mother with a strong heart. Stay strong and true to yourself. Hugs to you and your mom
