Fair or Not?: The Snow White Complex

Directed by: M. Hasna M.

“Fair or Not?: The Snow White Complex” is a documentary about Eurocentric standards of female beauty that are held across most (post-Colonial) cultures. 

Some of the topics covered: Skin color preferences in relation to class/culture, the media’s role in exacerbating internalized racism, skin bleaching products, exoticism of dark-skinned women, and the phenomenon of tanning amongst White women.

WATCH THIS NOW. WATCH IT.

This video is making the rounds again and I’m reblogging it once more because it is very important! 

Watching this again. This is one of the cornerstones of the problems most darker-skinned WOC face in terms of beauty standards and self-image.
