Thank you for your response. This is a story that is derived from girls I knew and women I know now who are struggling with the issue of light vs. dark. I had my battles growing up but they were induced from comments that were made that referenced my light-skinned mother. This will continuously be a struggle for those who can’t find peace with who they are because they were rejected when they were fragile enough to be destroyed.
