SELF-LOVE is a GREATER force than SELF-HATE.

Who taught some of you to hate yourselves that “dark skin” was/is seen as a lower part of the ladder? Who told you that fair skin was beautiful while most of you are darker skin in your countries and that anything other, you must hate? Why hate 90% of yourselves to look like people who might not even like you? Self-hate is the most incredible recipe for stupidity. Have you ever wondered why some people want to be (you) dark, brown or tan?
