This is a call to action for colored girls who have contemplated giving up on the media when the colorism has been too much! This is a call to action to BOYCOTT the NWA film.

For centuries women of color have had to endure negative depictions of themselves in the media. When the NWA casting call initially made its rounds, I was horrified at the caste system (because that's exactly what it is) that had been used to objectify and demean African American women of color.
Join me in BOYCOTTING this film to send a message that African American girls in ANY color range are not "D girls." As a young black woman who grew up with very few positive images of darker black women on screen, I believe it's up to our generation to send a message that the lack of ongoing positive representation will NO LONGER BE ACCEPTED. Black women are here and we've BEEN here and we are in no way subordinate to other women.
This is an issue that should affect ALL women! If your feminism is not intersectional, then what is it? Stand up for what is right.
