#iwillnotapologizeforbeingdarkskin


So straight off the back of my last post (here), I wanted to quickly acknowledge a hash tag that has been trending on Twitter for a few days now... 

 #iwillnotapologizeforbeingdarkskin

Now I don't know where it all started or what sparked it all off, however despite what anyone may say or think about such hash tags, just by reading some of the tweets and the number of retweets (I hope I am getting the lingo right otherwise my younger cousins will be SO embarrassed) it is clear that self-affirming messages like this do have a place within the black community!

I don't want to go into the politics of it now (too late in the night), but just to appreciate the positivity and  solidarity (which we need more of) and lend my voice to it. I am loving some of the gorgeous pics (men and women) and tweets being uploaded!  Check out some below or simply get on Twitter.







Thanks for reading

Stay confident and beautiful.
