Latifah Damali: ‘Pretty for a Dark Skin?’ | Spoken Word

Adesola Ade-Unuigbe



We stumbled on this beautiful spoken word clip by Latifah Damali and we just had to share. The video is just 1 minute 44 seconds of beautiful words.

It’s called ‘Pretty for a Dark Skin?’ and basically it revolves around getting complimented in such a way that reduces the value of the compliment.

Latifah Damali states, “To my dark skin girls, LOVE yourself and RISE! Your dark skin is such a PRIZE! When will you REALISE?”

    This should be emphasised more on Nigeria mistresses: they do not cherish the skin and the fact that they are Africans!
    A short story: My name is Seun Idris. I have always lived in the imagination of being a white,despite the fact that I am male,I loved the whites’ skin. Not until I realised BLACK has a long way to go,then,I embrace my complexion and my ethnicity.
    Nigerians,mistresses especially,be proud to be black!!!

    Its appalling to think of the effects how brainwashing people with the most silliest idea of what is beautiful or not goes a long way from generations to generations and people accept and live with such idea. If people can come up with such idea of what is beautiful and people believe that then there is something really screwed up in the human mentality. Also, I think racism is a serious mental illness.
