What is INTRA-RACISM?
  (make-up tips included!)

This is actually a pretty common unspoken question. Is having dark skin pretty or not? The average Caucasian tans very often to get a "dark" glow and that is considered beautiful. However, within many other cultures, the darker the skin, the "uglier" the person. No one really says those exact word, but the media rarely ever displays beautiful "dark" women of any ethnicity. There have been numerous occasions where television stations have chosen a "lighter" skin person, simply because it is deemed more pretty and acceptable to society.
Everyone is guilty of this unspeakable tragedy, not just one culture. Blacks are their own worse enemy when it comes to separating themselves from one another because one person is darker than the other. The history of this stems from the American culture of "lighter" being prettier. Blacks started to dislike one another based on the shade of each of their skin. If you were not lighter, you were not as pretty. Lighter skin was deemed as being closer to appearing "white." During the slave days, many blacks would deny their heritage at an attempt to escape slavery. If you were "light" enough, you could fool (almost) anyone.

How can a black person fool another
 person into believing they are white...or not black?
Isn't it obvious?

Yes and No. It depends on who is looking at them. In our society, people who have darker skin have been given the name as "all looking alike." If you are not apart of a specific culture and you have a stereotype of what another ethnicity is suppose to look like, anyone who appears different, you may just mistake them for a completely different race.  But, if you are familiar with a particular culture, then you are more likely to identify a person as belonging to a specific group despite  of the color of their eyes and hair may be.
The truth is, the stereotypes of darker people are so set in stone that people have not began to recognize that their are different features. Instead, when they spot a unique or pretty individual, their first assumption is, they are not black or whatever color they associate with being darker.

Why do all black people look alike?
"Be kind to one another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another,
as God in Christ forgave you













ANOTHER VIEW ON
LIGHT VERSUS DARK!

Dark is lovely and it comes in more ethnicity's than just black. There are PLENTY of non-blacks who have very dark skin, and they are mistaken for being black based on the false stereotypes people have created. America sets the traditional standard for beauty, but that needs to expand. Notice I said EXPAND. I believe that the ladies that are considered beautiful are gorgeous, however, not many other cultures are recognized in addition to how Americans (and other cultures) identify beauties

How does this hurt?

  • Suicide
  • Violence...
And much more!

THIS, BUT, WE CAN CHANGE...

If you happen to be a dark skin beauty of "any" ethnicity, I hope you realize that you are beautiful and sometimes people are not wrong, they are just ignorant to what is around them. Love yourself, and you will began to notice that people will become drawn to the beautiful person that you are both inside and outside. There is no LIGHT verses DARK...
