“I am thankful that being kayumanggi, brown, or morena never bothered me as a child, I wore it like a cape every single day because it always made me feel like a superhero...made me feel strong and beautiful. My parents didn’t care if we stayed under the sun for too long basta may sun protection kami, or if we looked light, tan, dark, or darker because they still saw us and loved us just the same. I know some Filipinos dream to be maputi, and that’s alright too, preference naman ang kulay kasi, sa totoo lang lahat ng kulay ay maganda, but to me, brown has always been beautiful.
“When people tell me that my cousins and a sister of mine are pretty because they have such flawless light skin, I feel extremely proud and happy as their relative, but then I also tell myself I am pretty with my flawless morena skin, too. I believe that unconditional self-love starts at home, that’s why I am forever grateful to my parents for their kindness and for loving us unconditionally since we were kids. But this is not the case for every one.
“My heart breaks for every human being who are being judged and even killed because of the color of their skin, It is wrong and it should be stopped. Our Black brothers and sisters never said that only Black Lives matter, they know All Lives Matter, but they need help with ‘Black Lives Matter’ because their lives are in danger. And to all my fellow Pinoys who have naturally brown skin, wear sunscreen every day to protect your skin but embrace your beautiful skin dahil walang kasing ganda ang kulay ninyo, yan ay tatak Pilipino,” Geneva posted on Instagram.
In a previous report by KAMI, a video of cousins Geneva, Sunshine, and Donna Cruz singing went viral.
