    1. Being Dark Skinned isn’t considered a plus, positive or beautiful in America or other parts of the world.
      As a child I was called ugly, tar baby and bullied for my dark skin. It took me a long time to Love my God given complexion.
      This model is a strong brave young woman.

      1. As most definitely you should, DeBorah. People that say such awful things…..I don’t even know what to think about them. Yes, the model is strong, brave and beautiful, to boot.

      2. Thanks. Sadly those type of negative remarks go back to slavery times and colonialism.
        Unfortunately the mindset is ingrained in America, Africa and the Caribbean.

  1. Yes, this issue stems back to days of slavery as well as our lack of black, beautiful role models in social media. You don’t see this type of beauty on magazines, commercials, etc. It hurts that this is still our reality today. Thanks for the post!!

      1. To be honest, the beauty of the face was what I noticed most. The skin colour simply highlighted that beauty.
        I assumed the Naomi Campbells of this world would have changed that stupid bias long ago. 😦

      2. As a Dark Skinned Woman I can say nothing has changed. One of my earlier posts was about a young dark Skinned girl who was mocked and belittled not only by her fellow students but also by the teacher.
        I went through the same insults during the 60s & 70s.

        This ten year old girl got the last laugh by forming a T-Shirt company called Flexing in my Complexion. She has her own YouTube channel.
        Racism, discrimination, and bigotry are ingrained in most societies. People have not changed from slavery and colonialism times.

  2. I love dark skin. I am actually hating (in a good way) because my black skin is a million different colors. My face is dark, legs is light, arms is two-toned. I’m a mixture of my dark Mom and light father. I laugh at times, if only I was one dark complexion. I love her complexion. This cabby needs to shut his mouth!!
