Being a dark coloured skin black girl in society comes with a lot of misconceptions. Growing up you might have heard quite a few of those misconceptions I will remind you of one familiar one,  dark skin don’t crack black women don’t get skin-related issues so it is good for them to stay under the sun. How about that yellow bones are more beautiful and exposed to more opportunities?

Well, ever since  Zozibini Tunzi has been crowned Miss South Africa she had not enjoyed her first month as the reigning queen in Mzansi simply because she is constantly criticised for her skin colour.

She had chosen not to comment for over a month now. I guess now she has heard it with the mockery. Tunzi took it to her social media to remind us all that black and brown skin will be always be beautiful no matter who says what.

I just want to take a moment to dedicate a post to the unkind comments that I have been receiving about my blackness since my crowning. To comments that are aimed at all brown skinned girls at some point in our lives. Not because it hurts me or gets under my skin, but because I see an opportunity to educate and speak out on a serious issue. When people say hurtful, negative things about black women and black people in general I do not quickly take offense and here’s why. Society has previously been programmed in such a way that there’s nothing beautiful about being black. The furthest you are from being fair skinned the uglier you are. That unfortunately has been the universal standard of beauty and it is very difficult for some people to unlearn it. I am going into Miss Universe with hopes to shatter whatever misconception and stereotypes people have of beauty. These comments are exactly why we should keep inserting ourselves in spaces where we have been told we do not belong and we will never make it. It is up to us re-write the narrative. To whoever else thinks that black is not beautiful I cannot wait for you to experience the depth and magic of a black woman. I am a daughter of the African soil and I am beautiful. See your face reflected in mine❤️ #misssouthafrica #missuniverse
