#LightSkinnedGirls I felt being included in Light Skinned Girls was appropriate because colorism affects ALL women of color. I don't consider myself light skinned, but I am in an industry that has tried to lighten my skin and eyes in publications and promotional materials because they thought it would make me more attractive. I hoped to convey that separating sisters of color from one another is not just divisive, but more importantly, it weakens us when we should be natural allies, working together to achieve more for ourselves, our families and our communities. People who are mad because they think I think I'm light skinned only prove how endemic these tired boundaries truly are. My baby sister's lighter than a brown paper bag, so is my grandmother. My mom is dark skinned and I'm somewhere in between. All of these women are me, and I am them. <a href="http://www.voice-online.co.uk/article/tatyana-ali-considered-light-skinned" target="_blank">http://www.voice-online.co.uk/article/tatyana-ali-considered-light-skinned</a>
'Tatyana Ali is considered light-skinned?'

Vote Tomorrow! You have no right to be mad about what's going on in Congress if you don't cast your ballot tomorrow. Mid term elections are vitally important. Don't let misinformation, criminal voting laws or apathy get the better of you. Voting during the presidential elections isn't enough. We have to show up tomorrow if we stand a chance at shaping our own future. It's called self-determination. Tune in not out.
If you have questions about your voting location go to:
