The perspective of young, African-American girls honestly expressed in the video below called A Girl Like Me. As a blond haired, blue eyed, white skinned woman, I find it sad they don’t realize how much their beauty is admired.
The other day at the gym, this young black women was putting lotion on her legs in the locker room. She had the most beautiful, dark, golden skin. Her image stopped me in my tracks and I just stared at her. Her features so bold, and pure. I was mesmerized by her beauty. I was going to tell her, but I didn’t. I am not sure why. I wish I would have.
