For me? My proudest moments are when DARK-SKINNED women are recognized not for their inner beauty but for their inner BRILLIANCE. Cuz man-defined beauty fades....but! Inner brilliance that black women radiate? Goes on and on and on to the point you can NEVER tell how old a Black Woman is when has reached the tip of her prime.
When I look at Lupita? I see my daughters, nieces, cousins, aunts, grandmothers....and my own mother. I smile cuz I see the hard work in her eyes as I have seen in the females in my family's eyes. It reveals strength, high intelligence, resilence, and courage. This image is universal for black women all over the world. And so to little Lupita I say to you? Bravo young sista, Bravo. But!
