     Whether you're white
               or black, or biracial, or check "other"
                     love and accept yourself, because
                           despite your feet of clay, you're beautiful
                                    and spectacularly unique.

     Be comfortable in your own skin
                 but refuse to be a prisoner in it.
                          Be whoever you want to be
                                  without worrying about...
                                         what people think of you
     Their opinion is irrelevant
               Don't waste your time and energy
                         justifying yourself to anyone
                                Embrace your individuality
                                    Embrace your foibles because...

                                  they make you all the more human!
