No matter how much I tried to convince myself,tell myself I'm not ugly, not too fat, not too short but in reality I am. I am ugly, I am a bit overweight, I am short and most importantly I am Black. that Day...when they made a racist reference toward me and laughed so hard,I felt ashamed. Hiding my face,I wiped away the tears but they were quickly replaced by newer and warmer ones.I felt sick and unable to breathe. I wanted to tell someone but I was...Ashamed. ashamed
