    Stunning, its so important for our little girls to see such beauty, confidence and intelligence in another dark skinned girl. They should always be proud of their complexion, their hair and all the beautiful features they are Blessed with.

    This is so “STEREOTYPICAL” There are some very Beautiful Black women who wear no wigs, or fake additives to appeal there appearance who long deserves this type of quote unquote “BEAUTIFUL” title. Again we are undermined again in ways we miss the underline point!
