Dark Girls Documentary

Dark Girls: Preview from Bradinn French on Vimeo.

Whoa, watch this please. Did you know how much of a difference it can make for a woman to be a slightly darker shade of black, at least in the U.S.? I had no idea, and I’m a little shocked. I mean, I’ve heard girlfriends mention it jokingly in passing when we’re talking about dating or whatever, but I didn’t get it until I watched this trailer. So upsetting. (via bb-blog).

  1. I am a white (very pale, redhead) 2nd grade teacher in DC. My entire class is African American. I am not surprised at this video at all. The last two years at this school really opened my eyes to this issue and many others.
    I’m alway happy when documentaries come out that open the eyes of people who can’t “walk a mile” in others shoes.

  2. My brother recommended I would possibly like this blog. He was once entirely right. This publish truly made my day. You can not believe simply how a lot time I had spent for this information! Thanks!
