The Politics of Girl World (part 3) Lightskinned vs Darkskinned

Hey you guys!

Its ya girl J*P* comin at you with another segment of "The Politics of Girl World". Today we are talking about lightskinned vs darkskinned. Alot of people tend to believe that the fairer you are, the better. Not true. So many women in foreign countries, layon beaches and sulk up sun to achieve those rich darker tones so why are women fretting and bleaching when they are naturally blessed with them. And, why are women trying to convince themselves that they are one color when they are another. Don't get me wrong because all colors are beautiful. Its just something about that gorgeous tanned/bronzed brown skin that appeals to me. I am neither lightskinned nor darkskinned, I am this color:
 (caramel/peanutbutter/brownskinned tone)
Now, If you are this color then you should not go around claiming to be "lightskinned" because NEWSFLASH you're not. To be lightskinned means to have very little-no brown on you. And this color clearly has a nice shade of brown to it. This is my opinion on skin tone classification:

LIGHTSKINNED-very little to no brown
:
 (alicia keys, lauren london, mariah carey)

CARAMEL/PEANUTBUTTER- "light" brownskinned with slight reddish or yellow undertones
 (beyonce**before mysterious lightening, adrienne bailon, ciara)

BROWNSKINNED-a medium brown complexion (milky chocolate/light cocoa/bronze tones)

 (meagan good, melody thornton, asia nitollano)

CHOCOLATE/DARKSINNED- having a rich, deep brown shade (chocolate, fudge, cocoa tones)

 (leila lopes **miss universe 2011, kelly rowland, jennifer hudson)

Now, this is just my opinion but "generally" it is the truth. Now, I've purposely posted 3 different pics in each category. Not just for a full range of colors and whatnot. But, for you to see that each and every one of these women are GORGEOUS. Google image them and you can see that their pics are stunning. And they are ALL different colors yet each one of them is very attractive. So this whole lightskin vs darkskin controversy is nonsense because no matter your color, beauty is achievable.

Its been real,

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
