[ # ] Dark Girls sheds new light into colorism
June 23rd, 2013 under Oprah Winfrey


Tonight at 10p the documentary Dark Girls makes its television debut on OWN and it is a must watch by all. Dark-skinned African American women tell their stories of growing up with darker skin and feeling the prejudices from people of all colors, but mostly from their own. Before I watched this documentary by Bill Duke and D. Channsin Berry, I had no idea colorism existed. I see people as one skin color, so to find out that people have self-loathing issues because their skin is too dark was a real eye opener. To hear what they have gone through and to hear what they did to try to change their looks saddened me. Hopefully this documentary will change the way people think and show people that you are beautiful no matter how light or dark your skin is. That is how it should be because when we are dead for while our skin all looks the same, non-existent.
