This documentary about skin color and why many dark skin young girls don't think that they are beautiful almost had me in tears in a few spots. It is about the fact that skin color really matters to most people in the world; It allows people to be judgmental about different subjects: beauty for one. Many women and men (famous and non famous) are interviewed and speak from the heart about how they grew up with the stereo type that dark skin makes you unattractive. The film is very well produced and touches on many subjects about why people still see dark skin people as ugly, negative, dumb, or untrustworthy. The producer also gives psychologists, and other professionals a chance to speak on this matter. Explanations of why and how this awful stereo type stemmed from slavery and why it still exists today are offered. I really appreciate the producers for making a film like this and for giving these women of color a chance to tell their stories and face this ugly old world view of beauty and skin color. Everyone should see this film.
