Women of Color on the Eurocentric Beauty Standard

I love this mini-documentary. Eleven minutes and more than worth your time. In the video, women are discussing the racist implications of the beauty standard that demands whiteness and privileges being lighter. They also take on the term “exotic” and the class implications in many places due to skin colour. Fair or Not? The Snow White Complex is a full 11 minutes of important viewing.
