Social media scrutinize Sho Madjozi, Pearl Thusi and DJ Zinhle’s daughter Baby Kairo over what they call ‘Light Skin’ privilege.
The real problem is that women are valued more when they are considered attractive to men.

Pearl also addressed the issue on her social pages. The television host, and radio personality agreed that the so-called ‘Colourism’ which in this sense is tackled as ‘light skin privilege’ exists.
“Colourism is real guys. I have dark skinned family members. I saw it happen in my own home. It sucks. But please don’t blame me for it. Help me be part of the solution. I will not let you think my skin tone mean I’m a target for your bullying. I will fight back. Count on that,” Pearl Thusi writes.
I lot of actresses are also upset because God keeps choosing me and they believe I’m not worthy.
I know how much more talented u believe you are. All the whispers always make it back to me. I know who u are & I know what u’ve said. I smile & pray God blesses & heals u.
