“You’re pretty for a dark skin girl” 


Man it amazes me when people give genuine backhanded compliments. To say  your pretty for a (insert physical description) it is hurtful. What that person is really saying although your features are not “commercially” viewed as beautiful, you are making it work. Really? I have heard it too. Even though you have freckles, your pretty. Or hearing she has a pretty face for a “fat”girl. We don’t have to make beauty conditional.
