Goths of colour

I myself am a dark skinned goth. I've heard people make fun of me because of that but I never really cared because being that different always made me feel unique :P . Anyway I thought I was the only "black goth" in the entire world as some people of colour feel alienated from embracing a subculture where everyone is expected to look pale as a ghost but it seems I'm not the only one. I've been looking around on the internet trying to find some infos about "non-conventional" goths (also called interracial goths or ethnical goths) and I ended up in this wonderful essay written by a dark skinned goth called Lucy Furr. I suggest you all read it.
it's long but it's worth it. It will totally make you understand what goth is and why ANYONE can be goth.

"Goth Culture has no reason to be racist, elitist or anything else completely obnoxious. Otherwise we become a mirror of that which we most despise." - Lucy Furr
