I sat in the bathtub with tears streaming through bloodshot eyes. The smell of Clorox bleach burned my lungs. The fumes had rendered me dizzy and nauseous. I finally succumb to exhaustion after scrubbing my skin raw. I was determined to wash this black off of my skin. My twelve year old mind couldn’t comprehend the fact that the same product that whitened my mother’s clothes would not do the same for my skin. All I knew was I wanted the pain to stop. I wanted the bullying to stop. I wanted to be accepted like the other kids at school with lighter skin tones. Most of all, I wanted my daddy back.
My father walked out on us when I was nine years to be with his Caucasian side piece. Her skin was the complete opposite of my mother’s deep mahogany complexion. I could only conclude that if my mother was lighter, he would have stayed. It was her fault that he was gone. I will never forgive her for him leaving us or for cursing me with her black skin.
