They tell you to work hard and you'll go far in life.
That is false, when you are beautiful you will go far. The prettier you are, the more successful you will be.
Looks matter more than talent and having connection will skyrocket your entertainment career.
We have seen where dark skinned influencers complain about the unfair treatment, the algorithm not working in their favour and not recognised at at all or given credit.
If you don't have the look you have to work extra hard to prove yourself.
We have seen that beauty standards play a role in the entertainment industry and whether or not you will get booked.
They tell you that sophisticated characters should be played by racially ambiguous actors.
That is the reason lot of people bleach their skin, this happens in India as well.
A black person should not be compared to a mixed race person. More upsetting when they accept a mixed race person to play a black character. That is dismissing black people in it's entirety.
