Again, in one of my prior posts I spoke briefly about how the beauty of African-American women is sometimes overlooked or only one aspect of our culture's beauty is displayed in the media. Many rap videos today feature women who are either not African-American (i.e. exotic) or the women are a lighter complexion. It is very rare that you get to see a woman with a darker complexion play the lead role in rap videos or just in society period. However, Kendrick Lamar is one of the many few rappers who actually has stood behind his words concerning the fact that there are beautiful women of all races and skin tones. Brittany Sky was chosen to play the lead role in Kendrick Lamar's "Poetic Justice" video and the world has been buzzing about this beautiful girl ever since.  Being a young woman with a brown skin complexion myself, it's so refreshing to see women with my skin tone and darker being appreciated and not considered automatically unattractive because we do not possess a lighter complexion. Beauty is something that isn't limited to one size, gender, race or skin complexion. Whatever people thought before about women with darker complexions is about to start slowly changing.

When u put the term light "Vs" dark continues it as a BATTLE. My point 4 poetic was to spark the idea of making it an EQUAL. @missinfo
