Being a “Black Racist Superstar” Is Not Fun, However, Being a “Superstar” Isn’t All That Bad
Ezinne Ukoha

I just read about a very dark skinned top model (Nyakim Gatwech), that happens to be trendy and promoting empowerment for black people in US. I thought it was kind of pink-press condescension — appears in Daily Mail — but after I’ve read part of her story — she is from South Sudan — I realized that is not the same being grown up in Africa or US, dark skinned people (afro, latin, indian,...) keeps being “gently” oppressed or relegated to some x-american cliche that makes white people feel comfortable. Are voices like yours that resonate and inspire to keep looking to the issue even if we see some advances in equality and Human Rights for all. Thanks!
