Suhana Khan Slams People For Mocking Her Skin Colour
Suhana Khan pens down a long post, hitting back at the users who have been trolling her for her dark skin. She shares the kind of messages and comments where users have accused her of getting skin lightening treatment, says she would never opt for it and is fine in her skin.
She also encourages to put an end to colourism and calls out the hypocrisy of Indian people to racially discriminate brown people based on the tinge of melanin.
Suhana writes on her Instagram,
“There’s a lot going on right now and this is one of the issues we need to fix!! this isn’t just about me, it’s about every young girl/boy who has grown up feeling inferior for absolutely no reason. Here are just a few of the comments made about my appearance. I’ve been told I’m ugly because of my skin tone, by full-grown men and women, since I was 12 years old.
Other than the fact that these are actual adults, what’s sad is that we are all Indian, which automatically makes us brown – yes we come in different shades but no matter how much you try to distance yourself from the melanin, you just can’t. Hating on your own people just means that you are painfully insecure.
I’m sorry if social media, Indian matchmaking, or even your own families have convinced you, that if you’re not 5″7 and fair you’re not beautiful. I hope it helps to know that I’m 5″3 and brown and I am extremely happy about it and you should be too. #endcolourism’’
Suhana Khan is currently studying at New York University doing her major in films. She has made her debut with a short film, The Grey Part of Blue, and also appeared in Cosmopolitan magazine.
Maxwell’s fiance shuts down racist troll after he tells her to ditch Australian cricketer
No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin or his background or his religion. People learn to hate and if they can learn to hate, they can also be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.
The racist attitude to judge people on their caste, creed and colour is still witnessed these days. It is indeed shameful to see racist incidents are present in society.
Why do we fail to understand or remember that there is a lot more beyond skin colour? The only thing that matters is talent, skill, positive thinking, the attitude of the person.
Recently, Glenn Maxell’s fiancee Vini Raman posted a throwback picture with the cricketer on Instagram. Meanwhile, a troll decided to come up with a racist remark on Raman as he mocked her fiance over mental health issues.
Last year, the Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell spoke about his mental health and fight with depression. He even took a break from international cricket before coming to this year’s Big Bash League.
The troll identified as @guru_boy7 wrote: “Ditch the mentally troubled while boy @vini.raman .. You don’t need to feel sorry for the poor dude… Get the Indian guy you sell out”. Raman who noticed this nasty comment shut down the user by coming up with powerful response.
“So, I normally don’t respond to comments like these as I know trolls do it just to get attention. But a 6-month lockdown has left me with plenty of time to educate ignorant morons. Loving someone of different skin colour doesn’t make you a sell-out. Loving a white person doesn’t mean I’m embarrassed to be an Indian. Loving a white person is my choice and I shouldn’t have to worry about what others will think,” Vini Raman took to Instagram to share a screenshot of the troll’s racist remark.
Maxwell and Raman had got engaged in this year’s February. Even Glenn Maxwell was proud of his fiance’s response to a troll. “Proud of you @vini.raman. Some people are just genuinely pathetic,” Maxwell wrote.
