GABRIELLE UNION: THE VALUE OF DARKSKINNED WOMEN
When asked what kind of girls her stepsons were interested in, to her surprise all the girls they showed her was light skinned. When asked were there any dark skinned girls they thought were beautiful their answers simply were “No!”
Gab talked to her boys about beauty being on the inside. But what’s sad is that they didn’t even recognize her beauty, one of the most beautiful women in the world!
“Colorism” amongst our people is more detrimental than racism. As much as we want to forget, slavery haunts us. Even to this day the stereotype of light skin being better and socially accepted is still prevalent and is a secret driving force behind our disunity.
