We are firing up a debate about one of the most controversial topics of urban modeling, which is preference of skin complexion (light-skinned vs. dark-skinned).

Skin problems, especially acne, affect our appearance and therefore, our self-esteem. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, 85 percent of Americans experience acne at some point in their lives, 40 to 50 million people have it at any given time, and Americans spend over $2 billion per year treating and preventing it. 62% of acne patients are adults and most are women. Statistics in other countries are not much different. Until recently most dermatologists believed diet has no effect on acne or any skin problem. But is that really true? Find out how you can eat your way to clearer, healthier skin. Find out what healthy products to use that are safe and effective for your skin.
This is the continuation of the discussion
What is nation building? What importance does it have on the PAN AFRICANIST? Really do you all understand that to be a nationalist and not be pro-active as to the only nations we come from on the Continent of Africa is counterproductive? You may have not been born in Africa but your Skin complexion of many shades of EARTH tones declaring your African Nationality without you opening your mouths. This plus the fact that you want Justice for your captivity and slaughter of your ancestors makes you a Pan Africanist.
"The political philosophy of black nationalism means that the black man should control the politics and the politicians in his own community; no more. The black man in the black community has to be re-educated into the science of politics so he will know what politics is supposed to bring him in return. Don't be throwing out any ballots. A ballot is like a bullet. You don't throw your ballots until you see a target, and if that target is not within your reach, keep your ballot in your pocket.
The political philosophy of black nationalism is being taught in the Christian church. It's being taught in the NAACP. It's being taught in CORE meetings. It's being taught in SNCC Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee meetings. It's being taught in Muslim meetings. It's being taught where nothing but atheists and agnostics come together. It's being taught everywhere. Black people are fed up with the dillydallying, footing, compromising approach that we've been using toward getting our freedom. We want freedom now, but we're not going to get it saying "We Shall Overcome." We've got to fight until we overcome." MALCOLM EL HAJI MALIK SHABAZ
Within the African American community there has been an on-going debate about skin complexion preference. Some people prefer light skin, some dark. But why is there a preference? Does one pigment have superiority over another? Is one prettier than the other? Tune into today's show to talk about light skin vs dark skin and where YOU fit in.
M’Hogany is a singer, songwriter, arranger, and former US Soldier. As a child, she was teased for her dark skin complexion. Her mother soothed her by telling her she was not black, she was mahogany—thus the namesake was born. Between the ages of 8 and 12, she began reciting original poems, but never wrote anything down. She was approached to have her poetry published, but her mother declined the offer. Two weeks prior to her grandmother’s death, M’Hogany had a vision to dedicate her completed novel to her. In the wake of her passing, she decided to incorporate her grandmother’s legacy into her writing. Her grandmother was not only the first lady of her church, but she was the head musician. “I had to continue on this journey my granny knew I started. I was named after her because I looked like her, so I feel I have to let her legacy live through me,” M'Hogany said. M’Hogany has also contributed to the Literary Lounge magazine created by Tracie Holmes. “I write the stories that life sings,” M'Hogany said.

The moment Angelica Sweeting heard her baby girl wish her complexion and hair color were different than the reflection in the mirror....she took it upon herself to make sure that she would NEVER utter those words again. Angelica created a doll; Naturally Perfected Dolls. An 18' doll with natural hair...the hair can be shampooed, curled, and is meant to be embraced as a beautiful natural doll.
She started a campaign on Kickstarter raising $23,000 of their 25,000 goal to launch the doll. I'm so excited to have Sweeting on the show. What a beautiful site!!!
