Watch: Colourism - How Do We Define Beauty? #ViewsFromTheBottomUp @Palladium_Boots

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder"...

And why should beauty be in the eye of someone else either than the subject of beauty itself? A personal and imperative topic that we have Sho Madjozi, Sika Osei, Mshoza and Refilwe Modiselle discuss in light of colourism. With the narration of Lee Kasumba, we get to the bottom of where colourism stems from, who perpetuates it and how the regular black woman deals with the pressure. Given that we're all made different, we represent every woman as best as possible in this discussion of "black beauty" and the danger of having an adjective against someone's nature.

What are your thoughts on colourism?
