Watch This: ‘Dark Girls’ Documentary Exlpores Black Self-Hatred
This is a clip from the upcoming documentary exploring the deep-seated biases and attitudes about skin color particularly toward dark skinned women, outside of and within the Black American culture.
Sadly, this isn’t just an issue in the Black community, it’s a problem with Asians and Latinos as well. This white worship is the result of colonialism where being dark skin was seen as low class and unattractive however, people need to wake up and realize that if we were all meant to look the same then we would. Ironically, even white people want to get darker.
Will people ever wake up? It’s hard to have faith considering that this has been a problem in the world for centuries.
This film will be released in Fall/Winter 2011. You can “Like” the Dark Girls page on Facebook, and will be updated with news there.
