I have to ask where you are from. Sadly, there are many areas of the country (and world) where your social class and worth are determined by your skin tone. I would recommend moving as far away from where you are as you can before it's too late.

My dad is Mexican and my mom is white. My mom used to send me out in the sun full of lemon juice trying to make me blond. Then one day my dad's girlfriend dyed me dark brown. How messed up is that? I hope you get out and see the world soon.
