Race & Beauty

Yesterday we covered race & beauty in my Race, Ethnicity & Culture Class.

The video below is a documentary of a model trying to make it big in Fashion Week. It’s shocking to me that even this day and age we struggle with racism.

There is a misrepresentation of what it means to be fit and healthy. Most girls are aiming for skinny.

What I want for myself is to be in MY best shape. Every one has a size that their comfortable and confident in. Go for that.

There will never be another woman who owns the look, the personality and experience that you do. Those ingredients make up the recipe that defines who you are, and it’s your gift from the Lord—own it. ~ Candace Cameron Bure

  1. I love the quote, no owns my look like I do! I like that! 🙂 Beauty is all about race… cause beauty is determined by what race is on the top of the racial hierarchy. That is why right now… it mostly looks like having the features of a tall slender caucasian woman is the model right now.
