Think you cute because you’re lightskin?

I see so much divisiveness among black women due to colorism. I remember growing up and girls automatically not liking me just because of my complexion and me feeling the need to reel in my personality as not seem as though I’m trying to be “better” than others. As an adult still seeing the same issues amongst black women breaks my heart.
