Grazia Magazine Edits Lupita Nyongo Dark Skin & Hair. She Calls Them Out by WotzupNG: 3:20pm On Nov 10, 2017
Hollywood Star Actress, Lupita Nyongo has taken to Instagram to call out Grazia Magazine for editing her dark skin and and kinky coily hair.

The Actress appears on the cover of the magazine but the pictures used by the magazine appear edited. Her skin was lightened and her hair smoothed.

Her post on Instagram:

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women's complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh

Everything to a black man has the racist or prejudice undertone. We don't see beyond our nose before screaming either of this two...it's normal to edit a picture meant for the cover of a Magazine. Her dark skin tone wasn't edited to white complexion, and it wasn't edited to a fair complexion either, so I see nothing wrong in the finishing touches they gave her skin. Were you expecting them not to edit the original picture? Their crime here is the fact that her lengthy kinky hair was edited to low-cut. The management of the Magazine are really insane if that was done without her consent.

Why nt leave Hollywood dear Lupita? White system deliberately hunts nd misrepresents people of color. And they love it when u complain coz it gives them this feel of power over you.

They have been doing it for centuries. Starting with sculptures when they break-off noses that are not pointed. With paintings, they "whiten" paintings to convert a black person to a white person.

My dear Black Model, if you are told that you are pretty, remember the mark on your forehead, when they play tricks on you.

She's very proud of her skin colour. Nice one.


Don't mind all these Ngwa and Calabar girls bleaching away their skins.
