This is Nyakim Gatwech.
Her name is Nyakim Gatwech. She's a South Sudanese model who was told to bleach her strongly dark skin by an Uber driver. What struck me about this story is the level of racial ignorance and slave mindset that still exist in the world today. Society continues to associate 'dark' and 'black' with ugly/degrading/unwelcoming & 'white', 'light' and 'fair' with beautiful/cheerful/embracing. It's a sick phenomenon that bothers me and continues to divide, destroy and disconnect Black America. Anyone that doesn't think this lady is stunningly beautiful & gorgeous should be drug tested!! . . . #QueenOfTheDark #TheDarkerTheBerry #MelaninPoppin #BlackIsBeautiful #AfricanPrincess
A 24-year-old South Sudanese model who is making waves in the fashion industry with her sumptuously dark skin.
She was once asked by an Uber driver to bleach her skin because she’s too dark. This depicts how brainwashed we are when it comes to skin colour, where being dark is viewed as ugly or degrading.
Of course, she did not pay attention to the Uber driver and she’s making waves in the fashion industry.
Check out some of her pictures and be graced with the beauty of her dark skin.

"I was asked the other day "how do I feel about being nick name queen of the dark?" My answer was I actually like the name there is nothing wrong with darkness and to be call queen is just Cherry on the top. Black is not a color of sadness or death or evil its just the way it has been portray for so many years. So I am the queen of the dark who bring light and love to those around me❤️😍🙏" #queenofthedark #queenkim_nyakim #knowthyself #blackisbeautiful #darkness
