Snoop Dogg’s daughter, Cori Broadus, is only 17 years-old, but she’s wise beyond her years. Cori has always been what one might consider the “red-headed step-child” in her family. She bears a strong resemblance to her mother, but her complexion is the darkest in her immediate family.
And as we know, Colorism continues to be a problem in many communities. Even Djimon Hounsou’s son has expressed his desire for lighter skin (read about it HERE). And as much as we can profess that kids who are taught self-love at home won’t have these troubling desires, we all know society glorifies light skin. Children do not live in a bubble, and the outside world has a way of creeping in and undoing some of the work done at home.
That’s why Cori’s latest Instagram post was so very important. Read it here:
As a dark skin woman myself, I can tell you that I’ve only learned to truly love the skin I am in in the last decade. When I was a girl I would have greatly benefited from a famous person my own age denouncing colorism and declaring that black is indeed beautiful.
Hat’s off to Cori for realizing what has taken many of us decades to learn.
