I don’t want to be Jada Pinkett Smith but I listen to and read her take about skincare, hair and family life….she is on top of her skin care regimen and holding it down in her hood. She a sista from Baltimore, Maryland….it is a daring move on her part to get on the cover of a magazine naked. Jada is obviously a women comfortable in her own skin……now I need to go slather some oil on my body and stand in the mirror to emulate this pose.
As quiet as it is kept….this race thing between black women and non black women should end. No matter how much bantering and conversations the media have about the war about color…you never can change your skin color..PERIOD! All women should embrace themselves and be comfortable in their own skin. As dark skinned as I am…if I was not careful and avoided the dark conversations from folks within my own community, on the radio and magazines; I would be a wreck. Thank goodness for folks who I have surrounded myself with…..who are all beautiful people. I can honestly say I never had the opportunity to get caught up in the negative stereotypes about being black and the banter about being a black women. Now what folks say behind my back….who cares! Imagine the white women who skin is soo pale that it burns when she goes outside….that can’t be good but ain’t nobody having those conversations…uh huh! Embrace your race and inner beauty….looks fade over time!
