Dikecam Kerana Perbezaan Kulit Anak, Wanita Ini Bangkit & Beri Penjelasan

Isu warna kulit sering menjadi buah mulut orang ramai. Kenapa ya kalau seseorang itu berkulit putih, cerah, terus dicop sebagai cantik sedangkan bila seseorang itu berkulit sedikit ‘tan’ akan dipanggil Dayang Senandung?

Apa pula perasaan ibu apabila lihat anak berusia setahun jagung terpaksa menghadapi stereotaip ini oleh insan jauh lebih dewasa hingga menggangu keyakinan diri mereka? Lebih-lebih lagi asyik dibandingkan oleh kakak sendiri yang berkulit cerah?

“Assalamulaikum, so today I was attacked by our netizen regarding to the issue rose up in instagram/fb. It seems like I’m at the wrong side since I stood up for my kids about comparing skin tones.

“As far as we concern, comparing skin tones had been a big issue in our country now since I also been asked by few strangers regarding to the different skin tones inherited by both my kids. Some of the netizen really ‘care’ abt us family until they left negative comments for us.

“To be honest I’m so speechless & disappointed bcs definitely you people don’t really get what i was about to deliver & highlight here. I stood up not because I denied what Allah had given to me or tak bersyukur or else but I wanna stress here that comparing with other is not good for the growth of the kids.

“You may ask the person who had this kind of history & struggle to live in other people’s expectation, yes they grew up tapi they might be lacking in self confidence! Thats is my point here.

“It’s definitely nothing to do with Im trying to viral my kids or even to crave for an attention etc because what’s the point of possessing a degree holder if I acted in such behaviour?

“Some mentioned also there is no difference between both of my kids, dua-dua putih! Thats not the issue, because literally we posted picture on socmed like IG/FB/ when we already done with balancing the light, the contrast of the picture etc right? So do I. Thats what you guys saw in my accounts.

“But, the truth is both of my kids is totally different from each other in terms of everything & the most obviously is their skin tones,and i really love this fact!!!

“Thats what Im saying, please stop comparing & terima your kids or even your friends as they are. Everyone is beautiful anyway.

“It’s even heartbreaking when you as a mother saw your kid is struggling to make herself look like her sister.

“She resisted to wear pink because people said pink look bad on a tanned skin ppl, she get her shower like for 1 hour just to sental her body & what do you guys expected if you are her mother?

“I love both of my kids & i stressed here that stop comparing because it will down-grading your kids & please dont judge before you do really understand the point. It showed your level of mentality.

“Thats all. Explain in english just to SEEK & CRAVE for your understanding if explain in malay karang orang salah paham lagi. I rest my case,” tulisnya.

Bagi MH, sudah tiba masanya untuk kita ajari masyarakat bahawa semua orang mempunyai kecantikan yang tersendiri tidak kira apa pun warna kulit. Sudah-sudahlah stereotaip yang orang kulit putih ni cantik. Ada jugak orang kulit ‘kurang putih’ ni cantik.. tengok sahaja selebriti Bollywood, malah artis-artis tempatan seperti Nabila Huda pun, cantik je kan?
