Dark Girls

When we first brought Elian home there were a few people who commented on his light skin. "Wow he is so white! So adorable." I found these compliments extremely disturbing. Is the insinuation that he would be less cute if his skin was dark? People used to say the same thing about me when I was a child. Quite frankly it makes me sick and I think it's a problem that needs to be talked about more openly. This documentary looks like a good addition to the conversation. Let me know what you think.
