In the African American community traditionally there are things we discuss amongst ourselves (like a big, private family) and there are things we let the public in on. Well back in the day there was an undertone of racism among blacks based on "light-skinned" blacks vs. darker skinned blacks. Now a recent study stirs up the pot suggesting that people of mixed heritage are seen as more attractive. Well from a perspective of world beauty Aisha Ray, Indian model and actress is supposedly one of the most beautiful women in the world, while Halle Berry continues to top the list in the U.S. Whatever happened to the Naomi beauty in contrast...I still think black is beautiful in all it's shades. But how do we collectively come to terms with our variety and except that we are the bomb from blackberry to butter creme?
