I needed to hear this today. Brown skin deserves some extra love in these tense times.
This song was music to my ears and my body when it first came out. India Arie's salute to brown skin was so forward, sexy, empowering and outright beautiful. When you're putting vaseline or lotion on your body, do it mindfully. Take your time and admire your brown skin, your black skin, your tan skin. Whatever hue of brown God wrapped you in lovingly, admire it. Feel it. See how it shines when it's all moisturized. Play this song for your lover and give him or her the pleasure of admiring your brown skin.
