I have a niece, a beautiful 5 month old baby girl. I love her dearly, but she scares me. I'm scared for her. Scared for her to grow up in a world where sun-kissed individuals like herself are seen as inadequate for no reason other than the ignorance of millions of people. A world were she and her future boyfriend will be questioned as to why they are sitting talking together four blocks from their house.
It makes me sad, it makes me afraid, and it makes me angry.
