It’s a sad day when a 6-year-old is bullied to the point of feeling depressed. Nevertheless, a mother’s love can soothe any wound.

Briana Hampton was disheartened to hear that her son, Isaiah Hampton, was the victim of bullying because of his dark skin. The concerned mother, and model, took to Instagram to share what she did to help her little one make it through school days.
“My son has been bullied at school and kids have been teasing him about his dark skin,” Briana told her social media fans. “Me and my husband @_latruth always say, ‘Son you’re handsome and those kids are mad they’re not you.’ Today, I found the perfect song to tell my son how much I love him! I love you, Isaiah. You’re handsome and chocolate. The ladies love chocolate men too. Ain’t that right, ladies?” Indeed! Little Isaiah was so overwhelmed by the song and his mother’s affection that he began to cry uncontrollably. Take a look at the precious video of the mother singing ‘This Is Why I Love You’ by Major and embrace the waterworks that follow!
Colorism has been a hot topic this year. In addition to Briana Hampton shedding light on the issue, Erica Campbell’s daughter, Krista Campbell, also touched on the topic during an episode of We’re The Campbells. Krista expressed her struggles to feel beautiful from the inside out all while being overlooked by boys. The teen stood her ground that her mom, in all of her love and encouragement, did not fully understand because of Erica’s lighter skin tone.
Briana Hampton may not have understood it all, but she definitely hit the soft spot in her son’s heart. The concerned mother also inspired artists to give words of encouragement to little Isaiah in addition to calling for an end to racism and every other form of the act.
Briana gave thanks to those who supported her in the quest to put a smile back on her son’s face. “Thank you guys for keeping me uplifted and uplifting @princeisaiahhampton,” the model shared on Friday. “I truly appreciate every single one of you, and I won’t give up this fight! #stopbullying.” We agree! The bullying must end.
