Can we be friends?
Hello, everyone I hope you are all doing fine. On this post I am going to write about something that I find very controversial and I would really appreciate if you engage me on your thoughts.
So I heard somebody say that some skinned women cannot be friends with light skinned women because of jealousy. Apparently dark skinned women are always jealous of light skinned women therefore, meaningful relationships cannot be achieved.
On the flip side, some people argue that some light skinned women like being friends with dark skinned women so that they can ‘outshine them and thus boost their self esteem.
I honestly think these are false misconceptions that people use to fuel the toxicity of colorism. I am dark skinned and I have heard and still have light skinned friends whom I really love.
I think friendships based on genuine love and appreciation supersede these standards that people set especially when it comes to girlfriends.
What do you guys think?
See you on the next post. Bye!
