    Colorism is disastrous for black women and black girls.
    Colorism is the more insidious form racism.

    Dark skin is just ugly to society and they know it. It makes you look dirty. Dark skin resembles a slave look. The coarse hair also resembles a slave look and that is why most black woman don't wear their natural hair texture. It looks unkempt and unprofessional here in America.

    I understand you were born this way and it's not your fault, but America made it this way and it will forever be. Dark skin will always be looked at as being poor and low class no matter how you look at it. Be careful who you have children with. You don't want any dark ones with coarse hair. There are no products for that type of hair. None! White America doesn't even understand how to go about making certain ingredients to fix coarse hair. Thank God for hair relaxers.

    Don't do this to your children or they will be judged by the world and treated as second class citizens. There is nothing you can do or say to boost their self-esteem. That is suppose to come within…..I believe American Slavery embraced these beliefs somehow. Dark skin people are automatically set in a certain category when they are born into this society and there is nothing you can do to change, but tell yourself you are beautiful so you can feel better about yourself.
