La ganadora del Oscar Lupita Nyong’o se manifestó indignada luego que una revista retocara una fotografía suya para la portada.

A través de su cuenta de Instagram la actriz dijo que aunque creció pensando que la piel clara y el cabello liso era lo ideal según los estándares de belleza, ahora es consciente de que sus rasgos naturales también son hermosos.

“Ser presentado en la portada de una revista me llena, ya que es una oportunidad para mostrarles a otras personas oscuras y en especial a nuestros niños, que son hermosas tal como son”, escribió junto a la gráfica.

Sostuvo que si le hubiesen explicado que su fotografía sería alterada, no hubiese participado, “habría explicado que no puedo apoyar ni tolerar la omisión de lo que es mi herencia nativa con la intención de que aprecien que todavía hay un largo camino por recorrer para combatir el prejuicio inconsciente contra la tez de las mujeres negras, el cabello estilo y textura”, finalizó.

As I have made clear so often in the past with every fiber of my being, I embrace my natural heritage and despite having grown up thinking light skin and straight, silky hair were the standards of beauty, I now know that my dark skin and kinky, coily hair are beautiful too. Being featured on the cover of a magazine fulfills me as it is an opportunity to show other dark, kinky-haired people, and particularly our children, that they are beautiful just the way they are. I am disappointed that @graziauk invited me to be on their cover and then edited out and smoothed my hair to fit their notion of what beautiful hair looks like. Had I been consulted, I would have explained that I cannot support or condone the omission of what is my native heritage with the intention that they appreciate that there is still a very long way to go to combat the unconscious prejudice against black women’s complexion, hair style and texture. #dtmh
