The confusion of other people when they look and then judge light skin mixed black girls really does take its toll on self-confidence and so much more. My teenage niece is mixed on both sides of her family, so her skin tone is quite fair. One day my niece joined her classmates dancing to some hip-hop songs and they were all shocked she could move and had rhythm. Eventually the bullying got pretty bad. She is much stronger for it but why should kids have to be subjected to such negative behavior and social trauma? One example is in the black and latino cultures, there is discrimination between the various skin tones. In America, due to colonialism and much more, to summarize quickly, light-skin would be considered more favorable and darker skin blacks would be treated poorly and considered less than…to say the least.
