I was doing my random Facebook roaming yesterday when I ran across this video on several of my friends pages. “Dark Girls”, I thought, “hmmm what could this be about?” So I clicked on the video and I was taken back to my childhood, when I was made fun of and not feeling pretty for being a “Dark Girl”.
This documentary sheds light on what many “Dark Girls” and dark men face every day. Men and women who don’t feel accepted because of their skin color and wish they were lighter to be considered pretty and handsome. If you never realized this issue went on, it can be quite eye opening. Seeking God and realizing that He made me beautiful just the way I am made me get past my dark skinned insecurities. It’s very important to be happy with who you are and who God made you to be. Who cares what the world thinks, they’re not perfect anyway!
