This may come as a shock to some black girls and women so brace yourself:
You are not white, have never been white, and will never be white
Now….stop and breathe deeply
As a black girl or woman, you have dark eyes. That’s a good thing, as dark eyes are a dominant trait. Blue, green and grey eyes are the result of a recessive trait. Okay?
Now get over it! Be happy that you are who God made you.
Every now and then you will run into a black person who has blue, or hazel or green eyes. Some of us have such people in our families. And that’s fine because it’s natural.
What is NOT natural—and what is dangerous, is when black women make attempts at turning their eyes blue or green. Not only does it look crazy, but it can cause blindness.
Check the sad story below:
NOW….this is not the first time I have asked black women to PLEASE stop trying to emulate the eyes of white women. GO HERE to read about a black woman who went to Panama to get some blue eyes and ended up practically blind. And also check out THIS article about another black woman who is fighting to save her vision after she plunked down THOUSANDS to have her eyes dyed blue!
****By the way, I DO NOT blame the 14 year old little girl. She is a child and does not know better. My fault is with parents and other adults who allow this nonsense to take place. Let’s keep that little girl in our prayers.
