Black people fail to unite one another. We fail to empower and support, and instead seek to tear each other down. The dark-skin vs light-skin feud has been prevalent for such a long time and is sadly still profound in society. Hearing comments like, ‘you’re pretty for a black girl’ or being told that I have ‘butter-skin’ fails to be alluring or attractive. Black skin has a range of different beautiful complexions and yet they remain to be the same on paper - black. I rarely see any other race prejudicing against their own and yet black people continue to do so. Often, I think this comes from a lack of grounding and understanding of your own culture and colour. A lack of knowledge. A failure to accept who you are and allowing consequential feelings of insecurity to stem from this. We need to work on having a united front. We need to work together and respect each other. We need to respect our whole race. Link to this is in my bio.
