Majesty Bahati; Bullying children on colorism

Hello everyone, on this post, I am going to share my thoughts on bullying children based on colorism.

Kenyans have a habit of bullying people online including children. Recently, the netizens bullied Majesty Bahati for being darker than what he actually appears to be.

Below are some comments on the post shared by Diana Marua( mother to Majesty Bahati);

MAJESTY πŸ‘‘ (@majestybahati) β€’ Instagram photos and videos

Kumbe mnakuanga rangi tofauti ni filters tu ndio mob

Mmekuwa weusi haraka aje?

Uko na stress leo mpaka umesahau filter mumekuwa weusi πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

My thoughts

Bullying children due to colorism is very harmful to their self esteem and it can potentially affect them in their adulthood.

People attach suffering and stress with dark skin and that is a stereotype that should be thrown in the bin.

Kenyans need to stop colorism and realize that making fun on people based on their skin tone is unnecessary.
