Model has brilliant response to someone who said she’d look hotter if she had lighter skin

Model has brilliant response to someone who said she'd look hotter if she had lighter skin

Mimi Mbah is a 19-year-old student and aspiring model from Gaithersburg, Maryland.

As an aspiring model, Mimi is, well, stunning, and also has to share a lot of photos of herself online.

Last week, some of Mimi’s photos were shared by @_AFRICANS_, a Twitter account that celebrates beautiful people of African origins.

There were loads of positive responses, but – because this is the internet and racism is still alive and well – there were some unpleasant ones, too, including one tweet that read: ‘[If] she was lighter, she’d be fire’.

Mimi refused to accept that sh*t.

She quoted his tweet and added her own comment: ‘No thanks. I wouldn’t trade my skin color for the world! Still [fire] tho’.


That tweet quickly racked up more than 21,000 retweets, with loads of people praising Mimi for her brilliant response.

‘When I first saw the tweet , I was disappointed,’ Mimi told ‘I have heard it before when I was younger but I didn’t think people still think that way at this age

‘I’ve not always been confident with myself but the older I grew, the more I learned to love myself and stand up for myself.

‘I’m glad my tweet got the attention it did because now I have a lot of darkskin girls in my dms and mentions telling me how much inspiration that comment was to them.

‘It’s just nice to know that my confidence could help others.’

Mimi hopes her tweet and her online presence will continue to spread a simple message: ‘I want to tell all my darkskin women to stay positive and love themselves.

‘Dark skin is not a crime and they are beautiful the way they are.’

Bravo to that.

There are others spending top dollars to live in your Melanated skin...

She look just fine with the skin she was born in... that melanated gold standard.
Not all are caught up in colorism,love the skin you are in. There are some vile forces out here who will seek to break and destroy her self worth out of jealousy or their own self hatred... psychological warfare!    

Fight back with love of self.
