Colorism is good

 

 

Gwendolyn Bennett

To A Dark Girl


I love you for your brownness,
And the rounded darkness of your breast,
I love you for the breaking sadness in your voice
And shadows where your wayward eyelids rest.

Something of old forgotten queens
Lurks in the lithe abandon of your walk
And something of the shackled slave
Sobs in the rhythm of your talk.


Oh, little brown girl, born for sorrow's mate,
Keep all you have of queenliness,
Forgetting that you once were slave,
And let your full lips laugh at Fate!



 Αποτέλεσμα εικόνας για To A Dark Girl

Σ΄ ένα μελαψό κορίτσι

Σ’ αγαπώ για το σκούρο σου χρώμα,
Και για τη μελαψή στρογγυλάδα του μαστού  σου.
Σ’ αγαπώ για τη τσακισμένη θλίψη της  φωνής σου
Και για τις σκιές που κατοικούν στα ατίθασα ματόφυλλά σου.

Κάτι από αρχαίες ξεχασμένες  βασίλισσες
Ελλοχεύει στο λυγερό, χαλαρό βάδισμά σου
Και κάτι από τις αλυσίδες  του σκλάβου
Σπαράζει  στο ρυθμό της φωνής σου.

Κοριτσάκι μου, γεννημένο για να συντροφεύεις τη λύπη,
Φύλαξε την αρχοντιά που διαθέτεις
Ξέχνα την αλλοτινή σκλαβιά σου
Και σκάσε ένα πλατύ χαμόγελο στη Μοίρα!


Μετάφραση: Βασίλης Μηλίτσης και Gerontakos

A song is about Colorism

 "Pretty For a Dark Girl" 

Music video and music single Lyrics by Lulu Fall, music by Lulu Fall and Kris Johnson

 Performed by Lulu Fall with the Kris Johnson Group Video, directed and edited by Christen Cofer

This song is about Colorism. It highlights the harsh prejudices and stereotypes that dark-skinned women and girls face interculturally, specifically in the African American community. As a dark-skinned woman, Lulu Fall pulled from her personal experiences, testimonies from female friends and family, and social media community to shed light on such a taboo subject.
 "As a child, I was teased because of my skin color and for having African parents. As an adult, I was told I my beauty was an exception for my skin tone, because dark-skinned women aren't considered to be as desirable. This song sheds light on Colorism. This song empowers Black women, and all women who were discriminated against because of their looks. This song is about me."
