It would appear that the young girl participated in a modeling group at her school; however, things unfortunately went poorly for her, and her confidence was severely damaged. It is speculated that the school expelled the little girl because they do not want girls with dark skin to model and they only want females with fair skin to do so. The little girl's mother was left in a state of heartbreak since her daughter enjoys modeling and had hoped to be a part of the group, but she was turned away because of the color of her skin.
It is quite upsetting to think that some people still have an issue with persons who have dark complexion.
The elementary school has crushed the little girl's hopes and aspirations by making her feel ashamed of having black skin and being a small girl.
People are still really shaken up by what happened and are pleading with the mother of the child to take the situation seriously. Because it is racist to choose only light-skinned girls for modeling and exclude dark-skinned girls, South Africans want the little girl to be reinstated into the modeling group. South Africans believe that it is racist to choose only light-skinned girls for modeling.
