Is it really just because the color of my skin? I tried to imagine what it felt like to feel so superior that if someone was not one of my people, that person would be hardly worth anything. Even the idea had me gauging and left perplexed on the idiocy of the human mind. My sister and I had a shop in a famous e-commerce website where they claimed to especially support and welcome artisan with handmade item. Even though we’re not poor but there are days when I still ate just noodles to keep me going. About a half year ago, our account was suddenly suspended without any explanation. We wrote asking the reason, no answer. We wrote again after a few weeks, still no answer. Finally after our third or fourth attempt to reach their customer service, we gave it up and just let our shop froze. It was encouraging to know that our shop still got visitors even followers even though our status was questionable. So at the beginning of the year, I gave it one last time and wrote to them again. Finally an answer! Even though it didn’t make sense, but they said there was some doubt of our product being handmade. So we gave them the process documentation they requested, bought fabric, made pattern, took pictures and still they’re not convinced. They wanted more pictures. So we did just that, we gave it even in details just to make sure. But then now they’re questioning our billing information, which by this time I began to smell discrimination or even criminal act might be involved in this. Because I heard about theft identity and no matter how ridiculous someone would even consider stealing one of our identity but we didn’t rule that one out. The bottom line, today I tasted the first significant implication of how the color of my skin can become the judgment in someone’s eye. I believe in Karma, my friend, regardless of how many of us think we can get away with it since it was such a small thing… those lies, those petty acts… we won’t win. I made mistakes, you made mistakes, no one is sinless in this world. But I chose to be different from those who liked to hurt others just because… It’s a choice. How you act, what you say, the give and the take, every little piece in our life that got broken and fixed again were made from our choices to stay true to who we are. Ugly, beautiful, discriminating, stupid, brilliant… we are.
