Grab bag: pigmentation, eradicate, writer, unfashionable – by S

Leave a comment

“Unfashionable.” “Strange.” “Weird.” That’s what they have named us, those of us who’s pigmentation is missing from our skin. Many have slandered us, people call us names, they stare at us like we are aliens. It feels like the world wants to eradicate us. Like albino-ism is a crime. Like our lack of colour in the skin makes us inferior. That’s why I became a writer. So our story could be told.
