While walking errands on my lunch break yesterday, I passed a beauty supply store and saw this:
I almost walked by, but something in me was disgusted enough to stop and snap a photo.
This product is boasting an increase of beauty.
Is the woman not pretty enough because her skin is darker?
Sure, we’ve had this conversation time and time again. Some of our people have been conditioned to think that lighter is right or anything close to white is better than being dark.
I’m tired of it all. My black people are beautiful regardless of skintone; whether high yellow or eggplant.
Let us love ourselves.
