still in denial - gabourey sidibe

something is very, ever wrong with this cartoon drawing of gabourey. what happened to her beautiful dark skin?

respectfully, i have to say this artist at is sending that same-old message, perpetuating the same-old stigma that light-skin is better...that dark skin is socially unacceptable, a lesser. my daughter wouldn't be too happy about this...

I have to say I see an amateur with a colored pencil at work here. Colored pencil anything is a long shot for effectiveness, and it was never going to work for this actress. Burnt umber watercolor would be my vote.
