This will continue to be a subject that i will not shy away from.
humans come in a wide array of beautiful and amazing shades, but the laws of human rights are "black and white." so why do certain entities continue to disregard its blatant violation?
i am a mixed race citizen, but the color of my skin has allowed me to be witness to the deep-seated racism that plagues the human psyche. i live in compton, california, i grew up around foreigners of all races, and my godmother is black (which i just found out this year! i honestly thought she just had a rocking permanent brazilian tan 🙈), but my skin is light enough for people to be "comfortable" enough to say things that have seriously questioned my faith in humanity.
my son is a mixed raced, bilingual child who does not speak english yet. every day i worry my husband might be targeted by police because of the way he looks (his skin is light, but he still looks hispanic, and he's been put in handcuffs and in the back of a patrol car for no reason on more than one occasion). i worry for my family, and for the family of every non-casper looking citizen.
my neighbors are all beautiful people, and the fact that the lightness of my skin might trick them into thinking i harbor any ill will makes me beyond sad and frustrated for them. as much as the ignorance of people in this worlds creates fear, if you want people of color to know you're their ally please don't be afraid to vocalize it. show the world you're a beacon of hope, or a voice of reason in these troubling times. don't leave to the imagination what might cause confusion or harbor resentment. if you don't, what are we to think?
i may not be targeted personally, but my family has been and i've witnessed racism, and i understand the depth of fear and trepidation which people of color endure constantly. please know that i am not against you, and i will not be.

It's funny how much parenting actually exposes our own areas for personal growth 🦋 my daughter was really upset the other night. we had just said good night and shut the door. she seemed a bit off but didn't say anything. 10 minutes later she came running out crying and landed into her daddy's arms 💓 so we asked her what happened. she sobbed so uncontrollably we couldn't understand a word she said! so daddy kept cuddling her, but i wanted to understand. so i asked her questions like: "why are you upset?" and "what is making you cry so much?" 🤔 ... she said she had a horrible day, but i replied with "you we're smiling all day! we played on the trampoline and watched a movie and you were so happy." she gave us a last cuddle and went to bed 😴 but i felt weird about it, and still didn't understand what happened. after a bit of google searching (what would we do without you google?! 🏄🏾♀️) i realised that i needed to help her process her emotions. i'd asked the wrong questions and i also had watered down her feelings. my daughter does need to grow in her own emotional self awareness, but i as a parent also need to create a space and non-judgmental space for her 🌈 so the following night she brought it up causally. i then asked her what was she feeling, and she said "frustrated". and i asked her what made her feeling frustrated, and she said it was because she had a bruise on her foot and daddy told her to keep putting ice on it, but she was tired of it. i then said: "yes that is frustrating to keep putting ice on it." i validated her feelings 💐 i then asked her, once she realises what she is feeling, what she could do next. she then came up with a solution 🤸🏽♀️ it had a beautiful ending! and i've learnt a big lesson as a parent. we so naturally want to comfort our children when they're feeling sad. but it's also important that we help them recognise their own feelings, understand what is causing them to feel that way, and come up with solutions to help themselves to solve the dilemma 💜 emotional intelligence is one of the best skills to have as adults and it's something i'll continue to work on myself everyday. enjoy your #friyay! love to you

My kids have been complaining about their teeth yellowing a bit, and i'm sure our summer brushing routines were not the best. we grabbed some charcoal today and added a little orange oil. i couldn't believe how much whiter their teeth turned out! you should give it a try. i had to beg my daughter to allow me to post this photo 😝. #oilfunclubkids#oilfunclubbeauty#oilfunclubkim
