Hoodia Diop – The dark-skinned model in the world

I’m always happy to see that those of us with darker skin can be well-represented…Hoodia Diop sets a beautiful example, like Alek Wek before her.


Meet the most famous Senegalese model, her name is Hoodia Diop, for extremely black skin color, she received the nickname of β€œthe goddess of melanin.”Her skin has such a rich black color that it seems that it is colored artificially.

      Definitely! I’m always happy to see that we darker-skinned Sisters can get some awesome representation…it happens so rarely! We need love, too…

      She certainly is! So many darker-skinned women are unfairly overlooked…it’s something that I’ve fought my entire life.

        And I don’t understand why. White women often look boring to me. But maybe that’s just because I am as pale as you can get.

        Societal conditioning, I suppose…I don’t know why people can’t appreciate all of the beautiful colours of humanity’s rainbow.

        Call me a dreamer, but I think someday we’ll all learn to do so. πŸ™‚

        As John Lennon said so eloquently:
        “You may say that I’m a dreamer…but I’m not the only one – I hope someday you will join us…and the world will be as one.”

        I relate completely! Someday, someday…

    As my Dad used to say “The Blacker the berry the sweeter the juice. If the berries too light it has no use! “

      Co-sign with that – your Dad was a wise man!

      I always hated it when guys would say, “Wow – you’re beautiful…for a BLACK GIRL!!!”

      I’d always think “WTF? Why does my dark skin exempt me from being beautiful?”
      Ignorant assholes always make themselves known, in no uncertain terms!

        WTF indeed… What kind of idiots would think that? never mind, saying it out loud… Well, at least you knew right away that you were dealing with some dough heads, and could simply say: Next!!!!

        LOL – exactly! People like that, I just say: “See ya…wouldn’t want to be ya!”
