Pretty for a dark skin girl

Written & Directed by Melissa Strong

This started as an assignment in Richard Lawson’s Personal Development class. My intention is to share my experience that “Pretty for a dark skin girl” is a back handed compliment. Does that mean dark skin girls are not usually pretty and I’m an exception to the rule. We have to stop doing this segregation to each other and unite as one. Being insenitivitve one should just get over it and work harder is dismissive. Ignoring that favor between us in many aspects doesn’t exist is silent racism .. Words hurt….I just ask that you walk in my shoes.I am not neglecting pain or disrespect light skin women endure…this is just my story with men and my career. I get that I have to work harder to prevail.

Facts don’t lie, according to studies 4 out of10 women in Malaysia use a whitening skin product. Three quarters Malaysian men find lighter skin women more attractive. By 2018 the skin whitening industry is expected to be worth $19 billion(world Wide) Colourism is a discrimination based on skin color. That is the dictonary definition For me, I have persoanl stories attached to my meaning ….I learned everyone has a story. I ask that you please share.
