Have you ever watched the light from a candle in a dark room? Absolutely
astounding! The light is so warm, radiant and entrancing. A little flame can
amazingly light an entire room even with just a small flicker. That's me— Merlot. I
am like the flame of a candle. I am hot, fiery, warm, candescent, and I have the
personality that can light up an entire room, no matter how dark, with just a flicker
—a smile, a warm hello. I often wonder, Where does the light come from? How
did it get there?

... and middle class is the “hidden transcript[s]” . . . of femaleness, the
womanhood invariably and historically celebrated in academe. In striking
contrast, Black womanhood is often presented as the antithesis of White women's
lives, the slur or the “nothingness” . . . that men and other women use to
perpetuate and control the image of the “good girl” and by extension the good
woman. (p. 82) Specifically, Black women compared to their White female
counterparts are considered the “dark ...

[Girls] were out in the morning by nine o'clock you know, eight-thirty, nine o'clock.
It's like most of the girls that I would have been hanging out with, we would all be
there . . . and the games were all predicated on rhythm. [You] jump to patterns.
You were cool and you had rhythm. (Personal interview, January 2, 1995) Liese's
words call attention to the way language about rhythm keys into the social
consciousness surrounding youth and black popular music culture. Being cool—

dark? To you? Tom: Some ain't. I ain't see no pretty dark girls yet. Q: What about
hair? Tom: Long. I like it long. Not that kinky stuff either. No weaves. No gerry
curls. Q: Can you deal with someone with a gerry curl? Tom: Yea, as long as they
don't have hair as short as me. I got more hair than any girl in the classroom.
That's a shame. Except for Dee and Sally. Anthony has similar preferences: Tony:
Long hair, nice personality, stay fit, well-dressed, church going. That don't mean I

ordinary clothes rather than school uniforms. 'I heard someone say,' muttered
Katherine, 'that it's War and Peace.' 'They'd want men ... for battles.' 'I asked
Simon, but he thought it would be boring.' Liv often thought that Simon was
Katherine in reverse: pale eyes and dark hair to Katherine's dark eyes and pale
hair, indolent where Katherine was always busy. She imagined that they had lain

Really, he behaved more like a proud grandfather than a father. Her mind dwelt
on her youngest son Sunny, now so far away in the United States. He had
chosen to marry a Tamilian girl who was his colleague there. How could he bear
to throw himself away on such a dark girl when there were so many beautiful, fair,
pedigreed Malayali girls (or European girls for that matter) who were waiting to
be asked? Not that it was the tradition in Kerala for the boys and girls to ask each

The universal gender classification, “girl,” is white. In all three of these successful
series, a default girl (or two) is implied and she is white. That is the norm and that
is what is acceptable. Anything else is niche. If it weren't for YouTube, I would be
extremely pessimistic, but I'm not anymore. YouTube has revolutionized content
creation. If it weren't for YouTube, I would still be at studios trying to convince
executives that Awkward Black Girls really do exist. If it weren't for YouTube, I

The bathroom didn't feel so bad anymore. My body felt worse than before with all
the pills I took, but I didn't care. My thoughts were clear of Mom, and the best part
was I wasn't alone. The girl in black even gave me two more bottles of pills for
later. When the bell rang, we walked out of the ladies room giggling with each
other. We walked to my locker first to grab my physics book. Each girl that
crossed our path looked at us, flipped their Barbie, blonde hair and smirked in
our direction.

Affirmations for Girls of Color Donnamaria Culbreth, Julie Jung-Kim, Ada
Elizabeth Culbreth. Colorism involves distinctions based on skin color (light,
medium and dark) and results in the favorable or unfavorable treatment of
individuals based on the lightness or darkness of their skin color. With its
foundation deeply rooted in white superiority, white supremacy, white privilege,
racism, prejudice and stereotypes, colorism is complex in nature, occurs
interracially and intraracially, and is ...
