My Mama had a melanin offshoot of the amino acid tyrosine.

Eumelanin is the dominant form of melanin found in human skin.

It shields tissues and DNA from radiation damage by UV light.

My MAMA is so black when the lights are off,

We could notice a pearl necklace hovering as she smile!

My MAMA was so white everyone knew she was part of a Greek Goddess! Her name was Achelois, the minor moon goddess whose name means “she who washes away pain”.

My Mama is so damn white,

My Dad is so damn white,

My sister and brother are so damn white

Should we be ashamed for our whiteness?

My Moma is so olive smooth with golden undertones

It reminds me of the Olive leaves peacefully blown
