    We are sad to report that Karyn Washington, founder of “For Brown Girls” (FBG) and the #DarkSkinRedLip Project has passed away from an apparent suicide. Washington, from the Baltimore area, received kudos from so many black women after launching the #darkskinredlip project after rapper, A$AP Rocky, said red lips on dark girls don’t mix.

    Thousands of women posted photos of themselves proudly rocking their red lips.

    Washington’s mission behind FBG was to celebrate the beauty of dark skin while combating colorism and promoting self love! FBG was created to celebrate darker shades of brown- to encourage those struggling with accepting having a darker skin complexion to love and embrace the skin they are in.

    It is disturbing to see this very beautiful young lady killed herself probably over her self consciousness pertaining to her beautiful dark skin. Let me say this Darkskin people are the most beautiful human beings upon the Earth. As a lightskin male who has white and black ancestry I can attest to the envy that is felt by whites and people close to white towards darkskin people. It is nothing more than fueled pride because we are taught the backwardness of White being superior, when in fact Dark skin is the most cherished skin complexion. Not saying that any human being is less than another because where there's a will there is a way.

    We must reverse this ugly trend that has been ingrained for centuries and return to Big Mama Africa and start again to love ourselves. This society will continue it's onslaught against the fragile psychology of African children born here. It's a shame small African American babies want not a black barbie but a pale one. This is because everything in this civilization is against them from images, socialization and social hierarchy that puts the darkskin child beneath all the others as ugly and unwanted.

    We lightskin people must give up this nonsense as well because we are dark people in majority. If we didn't mix at all most lightskin couples would produce a darker and darker children over time because we are a Black race. This absurd idea that we are this mixed blend naturally is just that absurd.

    As further speaking actresses like Halle Berry and Karen Washington are disgusting mulattoes. Halle Berry who is of mixed race is only called black by the one drop rule. She gives a bad name to blackwomen when she played some whiteman's sluut in Monsterball. Also Karen Washington plays the whiteman's sluut in Scandal. This women are lightskin and don't have to suffer the societal consequences that darkskin women suffer because the darkskin women are the majority and the real target of this mass psychology designed to make Africaness look ugly. I thought I would explain why so many of darkskin women are hurting because of the half white women are paraded around as the model of Blackwomen.
