A young Nigerian woman, Mariam Besty Sule has opened up about the rejection and mockery she has been facing due to her dark skin.
According to Mariam, the society has made her so uncomfortable in her skin that she resorted to editing her photos before posting them on social media platforms.
Mariam also stated that she lost job opportunities due to her complexion and some people jokingly call her names like “black board”
“I’m very uncomfortable in my own skin, I edit my pictures lighter than my skin color because of how the society makes me feel about it,” she wrote on Thursday, February 18.
“A lot of time I was called different names as joke, but I noticed I was actually affected by it.. the ridiculous jokes of “black board or color of their black shirt” or you’re too black, I can’t give birth to a black child.
“I’ve gotten rejected for jobs because of my skin color and got insulted jokingly.
“Stop saying hurtful things to black women under the disguise of joke because they are colorist statements and you are a colorist,”
“Black is beautiful and I’ve learnt to love it and you will respect it.
Black is beautiful and deserves to be in all shows!”
