Brownish Blackish #AtoZBloggingChallenge #B

My take on the prejudice faced by majority of Indian girls as the beauty standards in our country are still governed by colonial mindset

Brownish or blackish
Or maybe wheatish
My skin is honey golden
Or maybe a dusky gold

Whatever it's tone
It is just  not enough
Because beauty is white
Brown only ugly and dark

Pristine cold plastic
The white is idolised
Coloured real warm
The brown stands ignored
