#wakecreateINSPIRE -My black-iranian sister Yara Shahidi ❤
This daily inspiration corner, was inspired by the beautiful Yara Shahidi. I love how she uses her platform to inspire and embrace multi-cultural differences.
My thoughts below:
-Media plays a powerful role in how minorities are displayed. With so many lives lost because a person appears to be more dangerous because of a skin tone, is probably the most obscured thing ever. Yet, think about the labels we place on people because they look different, what if the shoe was on the other foot. What if you were mistreated, and assumed to be up to no good, because you have a darker skin tone.
Let’s be the kings and queens we were born to be this week, and not let the media influence our behaviors and thoughts. You are more than what someone thinks you are.
<3. I read somewhere we are afraid of what we have never been exposed to. <<<<get out of comfort zones. & #live
