COLOR is something that normally evokes emotion or a mood. IE. RED is known to be hot and sexy. YELLOW deems happiness. etc. But what happens when we look at it from a different perspective... as in, 'the skin pigmentation of a person'.
How do you think dark skin models are viewed in the modeling industry?
I think dark skin models are viewed as less desirable than a light skin model. We are only picked for a video or a gig if the artist ask. If not, they're going to go with a light skin model and now, more than ever, Spanish and European models are getting picked over black women in general.
