Light Skin vs. Dark Skin
The debate has raged for many a years about the color of skin. When I was growing up the light skin fad was in. I, being of dark chocolate persuasion, was looked down upon. I felt ashamed of my color growing up because I was made to feel unattractive. Its' hard as a child to understand beauty as subjective and relative to what an individual considers beautiful. Now that I have matured, I embrace my beauty, I know where it comes from...within. Inner beauty shines bright, there is no denying it when you've meet someone who emits an air of confidence, and poise. There really isn't a debate when it comes to light skin vs. dark skin, its about what's beneath the complexion that really counts.
