Dark & lovely

The crippling obsession with skin color or “fairness” isn’t limited to South Asia, but wherever it surfaces it can deeply impact self-image, professional success and the search for a lifelong partner, particularly for women.

It’s wonderful to see celebratory images of darker-skinned South Asian women and men combating this shadeism/racism through the new Tumblr “Dark, Lovely & South Asian.”
