“One of those is clearly Caucasian”
Aishwarya Rai, Kareena Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut 
Karisma Kapoor, Shruti Haasan, Zarine Khan
All actresses/models born in India to parents who were also born in India (or Pakistan), in a narrow view of “race.”

- Bill Nye: Race is a Human Construct (and don’t look at the comments; it’s the usual cesspool of bigots) 

Ideas on “race” have been in slow development over the years, but colourism is a real thing (often with roots in imperialism, especially as Western ideas of beauty began to intrude upon countries). 
The 100 Years of Beauty: Philippines has a jarring jump where April Villanueva (who has light/medium-toned skin) gets her skin darkened for the 1910s-20s aesthetic, then becomes powder-white when US/European colonial interests make a stronger influence on Philippine society in the 1930s (more in the research video). 
Two more examples of skin tone variation between famous women in countries where colourism has become prevalent in celebrity culture (ie, it was a lot harder finding photos of a dark-skinned Korean actress than a light-skinned one): 
Koreans: Song Hye-kyo and Lee Hyori 
Filipinos: Valerie Garica and Nicole Scherzinger (active in the US; Filipino father, Hawaiian/Samoan-Russian mother) 
Variation in skin colour across a “race” is as real as variation in eye colour (”oh, you have brown eyes? I guess you’re not a real Caucasian”). 
Colourism also pervades a lot of modern beauty marketing. 
What’s underneath your dark skin? A prettier, lighter version of yourself! Everyone should strive to be more fair and lovely because only then you’ll be happy with your flesh prison!!

Policing: your muse @MuseMiski FollowV Instagram deleted my picture- read below. Ig musegold musegold musegold I took this last November, in a moment of celebration for finally finding pants that fit both my waist and hips. This celebration was cut short when enough ppl reported it for @instagram to take it down. Usually I wouldn't address this- but here's the thing: I'm covered from head to toe, and yet my picture was seen as "inappropriate" enough to get deleted. My whole life l've struggled w/ body image issues & only in recent years have I come to appreciate my curvy body. Being a curvy Muslim woman hasn't been a easy journey. l've been made aware my whole life that my body takes up too much space and evokes negativity from mean aunties and men alike. If my hips weren't as wide, would my picture have ever been taken down? Probably not. This is the double standard in the Muslim community, as well as beyond the Muslim community. Curvy is tacitly seen as immodest-- sexualized by default-- so my photos as a curvy hijabi consumed and seen as obscene. For centuries now, men have been policing women on how they should act, dress, speak, etc and this incident is just another example. I don't believe in comparing myself to other women, because they're not my competition, but the harsh reality is that it's easier to be a slimmer hijabi wearing this same outfit. I'm tired of being told I shouldn't wear certain things because I'm not a size 4-6, a size range l haven't fit in since elementary school Growing up I never saw anyone that looked like me in the media and I definitely didn't see a black, curvy, hijabi-- and still haven't to this day. Representation is important to me Seeing women like Serena Williams, Ashley Graham, etc., feel beautiful in their skin is a inspiration to all in a world that tells women the opposite. I come from a community where ppl who look like me are not visible and are constantly shamed. This is my body & I'm not hiding it anymore to make others comfortable.

 Although Google did not specifically
 mention #BlackLivesMatter, there is little
 doubt that the recent outcry against state
 violence and injustice influenced Google's
 philanthropic initiatives. Feel free to direct
 people to this story whenever they ask
 what good things protesting has produced
 Tell them this is the reason social action
 and unitv are important
 Plus, when wypipo find out, we're gonna
 need all the help we can get mopping up
 the white tears

I want to tell you why your fat acceptance movement is complete bullshit.</p><p>See that photo on the left? I was 160kg. That’s 352.7lbs for my American lovers out there.</p><p>I did not know I was 160kg. I didn’t go near a scale. I had gorgeous blonde hair extensions and jeans with chains and a leather jacket. I thought I was heaps fly. I could not see the girl in that picture… until I was tagged in that picture on Facebook.</p><p>I cannot tell you how long I cried for. Hours? Yes. Days? Probably. Weeks? It’s likely.</p><p>I went to a doctor to see just how much I had been putting my body through. I was 21 at the time. He told me that he would be very surprised if I made it to 30, as my back and my organs were already struggling, coupled with the fact that I have some blood issues anyway… I was just putting a lot of stress on myself physically.</p><p>So I learned how to eat. I learned the value of protein, the implications of sugar and the fun of a cheat day. I started watching my portion sizes and keeping my water intake up. I went on short walks - nothing too strenuous. Really, I didn’t put a whole lot of effort in at all. But the weight started falling off.</p><p>I remember the day I sat down comfortably at the Imax theatre in Sydney. I wasn’t sitting right at the edge so I didn’t get stuck. I was completely in the seat and it was incredible.</p><p>I dropped 50kg in 6 months without even trying.</p><p>My weight has fluctuated randomly since then, and I haven’t quite hit my goal yet, but I have never gotten near 160kg again. I used to work out by putting the weight I had lost in a back pack, but eventually it got too much and I was really hurting myself. Do you even understand that? I couldn’t even carry my own weight once I didn’t have to.</p><p>I spend a lot of time preparing food and working out, because nothing terrifies me more than going back to that.</p><p>Tumblr, I’m going to tell you what 160kg was like.</p><p>Some mornings, I woke up and my back had seized - I couldn’t go to work because I couldn’t walk. If it wasn’t my back, it was the unbelievable chest pains. I had so much trouble finding clothing in a size 24. And I’m going to be honest - sex was REALLY difficult. I was engaged to a wonderful man at the time, and I didn’t have the confidence or ability to take charge in the way I wanted to and he wanted me to. Plus, not to be crude, but certain positions were completely out because my fat got in the way. It’s something I STILL get unbelievably self conscious about - even though my situation has changed dramatically.</p><p>Sometimes, if I sat on a chair, I was afraid it would break. I spent a lot of time absolutely constipated because of my poor diet, and the flight up to my unit was the hardest thing in the world. I made frequent excuses for myself - including the age old “But I EAT REALLY WELL AND EXERCISE” yeah, if doritos were a vegetable and The Sims were a full body work out, I had those bases covered. </p><p>Everything hurt for no damn reason sometimes, and I was light headed and just plain sick so often it started to feel normal. My joints felt like those of an 80 year old woman. I was desperately, unbelievably unhappy and suicidal.</p><p>I want to share another thing with you before I get to my overall point.</p><figure data-orig-height="669" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bdac2b93e81c9510e85a028dbaa8b1b2/tumblr_inline_nkriomLjPH1qewkfa.jpg"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/e7fdfb0105839463248b6fc4d41049e1/tumblr_inline_p95dlnmZ1g1rw09tq_540.jpg" alt="image" data-orig-height="669" data-orig-width="500" data-orig-src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/bdac2b93e81c9510e85a028dbaa8b1b2/tumblr_inline_nkriomLjPH1qewkfa.jpg"/></figure><p>That was the first picture I EVER took of my full body after dropping that 50kg.

Being thin is not a privilege - for some of us, achieving it is damn hard work.</p><p>I’m still overweight, and I know better than to demand someone find me attractive, or to get angry at someone for making fun of me with their friends. I also know better than to let it derail me or destroy me - rather, it fuels me.</p><p>Your fat acceptance is bullshit. You’re telling women to accept a body that is killing them. You’re telling women it’s ok that you’re a massive drain on the medical system, as long as you think you feel good.</p><p>Fuck your movement.

Even when I was little, born from a family with ‘big bones’ and the like, my pixie stick thin mother would go on and one about how I’d lose the weight, how I’d learn to grow and make myself feel better about myself because I was thin like she was. I heard this every day from the time I was 6 years old, until I turned 13, and she became obsessed with the fact I was fat. A 13 year old girl, at 5’4 and barely topping 120lbs and my mother was going on about the tiny pooch on my belly.</p><figure data-orig-height="428" data-orig-width="247"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/2eb30b3664d95a329db59f92c469a06f/tumblr_inline_nn5t96DPv91rk2r40_540.jpg" data-orig-height="428" data-orig-width="247" alt="image"/></figure><p>I grew, and when I turned 17?

Does this mean I am happy with my body? Absolutely not. But this does mean that while I work my ass off with yoga, exercise, and a healthy diet, my body has metabolized itself comfortably at a level that is way above the norm I had expected.</p><figure class="tmblr-full" data-orig-height="540" data-orig-width="720"><img src="https://78.media.tumblr.com/69e00bd6324528a5f1c828d5fdda5aaa/tumblr_inline_nn5t9oPWIa1rk2r40_540.jpg" data-orig-height="540" data-orig-width="720" alt="image"/></figure><p>Reading stories of weight loss success are a pleasure for myself.

You worked for how you needed to look because you suffered remaining as you were. You body was killing you, yes. Don’t shame people who choose not to. There should be no thin shaming, fat shaming, or praise for either. Why say this? Because body positivity should be a norm for everyone, no matter the shape or size. If someone chooses to be a danger to themselves weight wise and be proud of that fact? Its not your job to go on and on about why they should change that. No one is going to work themselves change but the one who needs to change in the first place.

You’re a disgusting liar when you seek to deceive others that way to validate yourself.</p><p>Yeah. Shame on me for thinking that mentality is wrong. I’d rather be that cunt than the cunt who encourages women to remain unhealthy.</p></blockquote>
