you look good to be dark-skinned

the following vid just BREAKS my heart! reminds me of being told (more than once): “you look good to be dark-skinned”

what are we teaching our babies?!?! why are we using someone else’s standards of beauty to define ourselves? when do we start LOVING ourselves and stop beating ourselves?

i am too appalled right now to craft an intelligible response… until then, watch below…

    It’s called self hatred. As they have children and get older they will understand.. They’re entitled to believe what they choose, but listen to the streets when they talk because this is how many of them think.. This also comes from somewhere… And know that many of us act the way they do because of the image that we have of ourselves.. Peace.
