MY HEART IS MELTING
the concept of the project makes this 10x more beautiful
“My series presents the truth about the sensitivity of boys, especially boys of color. It is important to have images that positively portray boys of color because they are stereotyped in ways which lead people to believe that they feel less pain than other people. Their negative depiction in popular media contributes to a lack of empathy for them and robs them of human qualities. My images show that boys of color are people who feel pain just as strongly if not more than others. Like flowers, they are beautiful and must be protected. Please do not step on them.”
SUPPORT SENSITIVE BOYS OF COLOR 2KFOREVER
