She's Pretty For A Dark Skin Girl!
I found this article from the Huffington Post By Tameka Raymond (Usher’s ex-wife) interesting… She raises a lot of good points, and brings in a lot historical evidence. This is a well-written piece in which I could feel her pain. It's hard not to agree with the things in the article ,especially the current events that she references, along with her own situation. I want to say to Tameka, Stop Cutting Yourself Down! The character Charlie Brown was once discussing his low self esteem: "It goes back to when I first set foot on the stage of life. They looked at me and said, 'He's just not right for that part' Our self-image is second only to our faith in God. It doesn't matter what others think of us, what matters is what we think of ourselves based on what God thinks! Self esteem has to come from self. That's why it's hard to believe the good things people say about you when you can't see them in your self. Plus, how you treat others flows directly from your reservoir of personal dignity and self respect. It's impossible to "Love your neighbor as yourself' when you don't even like yourself. So Tameka stop cutting yourself down! God made you the way you are in order to use you the way He planned. So, start complimenting Him on the great job He did. And remember, He loves you unconditionally and that' the only reason you need for loving yourself. Check this out: God,why did You make me black?
