I feel you on that. I am proud of my skin. And you are right — light skinned women just have to be light. They don’t have to be especially beautiful and she is a perfect example. The crazy thing is — she is not even actually Black. She is only Latina but describes herself as Afro-Latina. It makes no sense for her to compare herself to other women’s skin color. Too often, men turn down dark-skinned beautiful women just to be with someone of a fairer complexion. I want to keep speaking out about this issue because it really needs to stop. Thanks so much for sharing your story and reading. I appreciate you ♥︎
