Have you all had the issue of trying to explain to your S/O or Husband that black women being treated as less than beautiful because of the color of their skin is a thing? My husband really can't see it. He thought Oprah's "Dark Girls" thing was silly and didn't understand why it was even a topic of discussion. He was later shocked at our friend's sister for saying that she'd always had a problem getting men just because of how dark she is.
Each time it comes up, I give him my incredulous look and assure him that it IS a thing that a lot of black women experience because of the color of their skin, how they choose to wear their hair, how many curves they have, etc. Granted, many of us get over how the rest of the world judges our beauty, but that doesn't mean it wasn't a process. What worries me is that because he doesn't get it, he may write it off if our daughter ever comes at him with issues she has/feels because of the same thing.
What are your thoughts on the issue? Is there any advice on how I should handle this with him when it comes up?
