I know growing can be tough, since the world is filled with bullies!
Many kids suffer in silence, but on a recent episode of TV One’s new reality show, We’re The Campbells, Krista Campbell — the eldest daughter of Mary Mary star Erica Campbell and producer Warryn Campbell — opened up about being targeted because of her skin color.
During the episode, Krista tells her mom that when she was in the fifth grade, a few girls at school called her “darkie” and refused to play with her, and the traumatic moment has had a lasting impact on her self-esteem.
Erica did such a good job of reassuring her daughter that she is beautiful and I just wanna let all our followers know that if you know someone who may be dealing with similar issues that I recommend reading The Shes by Terrence Terell. It’s about self love and loving the skin you’re in.
