Dark Skinned 

I don’t care how anyone else feels about it. Brown skin is beautiful. I used to have a hang up about people calling me dark skinned. I would always say, “I’m not dark, I’m brown.”

And I am brown. But in that rich, creamy brownness, I notice a few blemishes and flaws. Flaws that wouldn’t be visible if my skin was darker. 

Then I see pictures of women like the one above, and I instantly want to go sit out in the sun for a few hours to get that same look. 

Dark-skinned people are beautiful.
