Colorism


Colorism is a prominent problem in my community. It stems from slavery and still influences the Black community today. The media feeds into this problem. I have an issue with urban music videos including the HMI. Why most of the time the female lead is a fairer skin woman? This seems to be the standard for most music videos. It is rather annoying. Beauty comes in many shades. We need to make a change. The music artists must start including all shades of black women in their music visuals. I do respect the musicians that show variety in their music videos. Nonetheless Black is beautiful.
