Bianca Gonzales hits back: "Negra" and proud

On Instagram, Bianca Gonzalez-Intal shared her piece on being a #proudmorena and posted her photo from ten years ago.

 A few days ago, Bianca Gonzalez-Intal responded to her bashers who called her daughter Lucia Martine, “negra.” She defended her child by saying that she is a “Pinay and proud just like her momma!”

This particular incident hit close to home for Bianca because she was being bullied for being “negra” back then up to now. With this, she decided to speak up about loving one’s skin. She posted a photo of herself from 10 years ago along with her sentiments on the matter: “10-year-old-me to bullies calling me "negra" be like ?? .. ?? Fast forward to me in my 30s, and haters still bully me "negra."“

She continued: “Na-insecure din ako nung bata ako, until I discovered my talents and built real friendships and realized skin color doesn't matter. The past few days have been so eye-opening, to find out that so many people are still bullied for being maitim. 2016 na, huy! Naniniwala ka pa rin ba na "mas maganda" ang maputi kaysa sa maitim? Pinoy tayo, kayumanggi ang kulay natin, be proud of it! To any young Pinoy reading this, huwag na huwag ma-pressure na magpaputi dahil hindi mo kailangan yan, maganda ang kulay mo. To parents, siblings, best friends, special someones of anyone being bullied for being dark, reassure them that their color is beautiful and they need not be fairer to be appreciated. Whether you're born with dark or fair skin, embrace your color and be proud of it. Wala sa kulay ng balat yung halaga mo bilang tao; nasa pakikisama mo at kung paano mo ibinabahagi yung talents mo na mahalaga. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts and comments, nakakatuwa na madaming#proudmorena!!!!

(I was insecure when I was young until I discovered my talents and built real friendships and realized skin color doesn’t matter. The past few days have been so eye-opening, to find out that so many people are still bullied for being dark-skinned. It’s already 2016! Do you still believe that being white is prettier than being dark-skinned? We are Filipinos and we are brown-skinned, be proud of it! To any young Pinoy reading this, never ever be pressured to whiten your skin, because you don’t need that, your color is beautiful. To parents, siblings, best friends, special someones of anyone being bullied for being dark, reassure them that their color is beautiful and they need not be fairer to be appreciated. Whether you’re born with dark or fair skin, embrace your color and be proud of it. The color of your skin does not determine your worth as a human being; it is with how you deal with people and how you share your talents is what’s most important. Thank you to everyone who shared their thoughts and comments, it’s so gladdening that there are a lot of #proudmorena!!!!)

Are you also a #proudmorena?
