The complexion of the black race, with special reference to the women folk has thrown a lot of people into a frenzy of belonging or trying to belong to either “team light skin” or “team dark skin.” Some harbour the thought the male specie might be partial to team light skin and therefore they (team light skin) have all their (the male specie’s) time and attention. This prejudice is so powerful that it creates a controversial segment in the skin care industry. A secret formula was developed to bring willing subjects out of “darkness” into the “light”. I dare say, if the industry ever attempts to turn light into darkness, it would go bankrupt overnight but that is an argument for another day.
There are those who are bold enough to argue that dark is better and the closer you are to your natural state, the more likely you are to rake in admiration and attention. This prejudice has town criers, hashtags and the whole media world screaming into our poor ears, “team melanin, black and proud, chocolate toh bad”…and the list goes on. More often than not, it sounds like a counter attack against the negative perception the western culture has sold Africans about our dark skin, anyway good luck with that, just know the devil is always going to be black.
Amidst the raging war, has anyone stopped to ask why we don’t get to chose the color shade we come in, yet we want to dictate who has what when we pick a spouse, a partner or for some even a close friend? Just as sure as the sun is going to shine everyday, the fact is we are all going to have prejudices or preferences for skin color, whether it is to ensure a better future for our offspring or to massage our ego. But really should the focus be on the color shade or on the health and nourishment of the African skin? Is it possible for every African individual to unite under a different banner asides color shade?
There is a school of thought that says “team melanin” used to do little or nothing to accentuate the texture and look of their skin. Team light skin on the other hand has always been positioned to attract attention, with little or no work needed. This could be the single reason why a good number of Nigerian artistes prefer to use light skin models in their music videos even though they themselves are blacker than burnt dodo. On a more serious note, there are some of us that want to believe team melanin’s grievances against team light skin pushed them to look for a better position and perception. The movement made room for a novel skin category,“team Glow Skin”. This new sect does not base their scorecard on skin complexion but on skin health, nourishment and texture. They believe that irrespective of skin color and prejudices, a well nourished and healthy skin with lovely texture will draw the admiration of almost anyone.
By now you’re probably wondering, if it is possible to move over to from team light skin or team dark skin to team glow skin? Is possible to have beautiful skin that glows irrespective of it’s complexion? The answer is an absolute yes.
