Before you get pissed off at me. Black is beautiful! NO MATTER THE SHADE. I love our melanin and how we can create multiple shades of beauty. Let’s be clear but let’s talk about the fact dark skin women may not always have been viewed as beautiful to society. Fuck them! Period love yourself no matter what “shade of black” you are.
Recently the beautiful Jamaica artist and Love And Hip Hop star Ms. Spice revealed photos of herself with much lighter skin then normal. This shocking the world and causing an uproar. Spice deleted all pictures of herself when she had darker skin and posted a picture of her as a light skin women.
She working on a new project and released a music video called Black Hypocrisy. Where she speaks on how people told her she’d go further in her career if her skin was lighter. How many other darker skin women have been told this? How many young girls have been pick on for being darker in skin tone.
The Jamaica artist new music video express how she was told she was inferior to other’s based off her skin tone. The most shocking part is she explained it came from other Black people. We all know in the Africa American community there’s a “light skin vs dark skin race war”. Literally we as people have been taught to believe lighter complexion people are superior to dark complexion people.
