    This is difficult. Being a positive person, I believe strides have been made in addressng the issues you discussed. However, and I am only speaking from the perspective of an American. We still have so much further to go. I have entered Sephora with my daughter, who has an olive complexion and she has pointed out fair skinned women have more options available to them. As for advertising/marketing they are completely lost. Too often I have felt commercials
    are dumbed down for minorities. So we still have a long way to go.

    Myself, I believe there is beauty in everyone. I have dated women of all sizes, shapes, and complexions. My mother taught me to look beyond the exterior.
    I always have said the difference in culture and appearance is what makes us unique, interesting, therefore beautiful.

      The world would be far more boring if everyone looked the same. I see this on Instagram where a lot of people try to create the “IG look” – it’s becoming predictable and unoriginal.
      Strides have been made, but I also think many companies are just doing things differently now because they’re worried about being called out online. I think if some brands could, they would go back to using one type of model for advertising.

      Thank you for reading and commenting Andrew. Happy Monday 🙂
