The ultimate battle between lighter skin and darker skin. Darker skin is seen as 'nasty' or 'dirty' and all over social media you can find nasty little jokes, mainly about women, about darker skin. If you have darker skin you are 'meaner' and you 'tougher' and for some reason these ideas have stuck around until recently with the outbreak of many hashtags such as 'flexin' my complexion' and other skin positive movements. Then on the other hand if you have lighter skin you are not 'black enough' like you can measure a person's 'blackness' on a scale. While improvements have been made, these ideals are still very strong, particularly in the black community. The video showcases my exact feelings to this disturbed mindset.
