So I saw this picture on my Twitter and instantly felt sad. As a darker girl, I felt so sad that some one could think this way, being darker is not ‘dirty’ or 'inferior’. No girl in this world should have this notion of her self that her skin or body is not beautiful…this is what happens when we separate our ourselves into groups of dark skinned v light skinned. The melanin in our skin is so beautiful, do not let the society’s view of beauty make you do something so drastic…that can cause cancer. Every 'skinned’ is beautiful no matter what, as long has you are human…you are beautiful. And to my fellow darker skinned girl..you are beautiful, you are sexy just has any other light skinned girl..do not make something like skin make you feel inferior.
