Pearl Thusi-“I can’t change how I look”

Even though on-screen character and TV presenter Pearl Thusi has developed a thick skin with respect to cyberbullying, the colourism hate she gets on a daily basis does affect her.

Pearl lifted the cover on her battles of continuously attempting to prove herself because people accepted she got various gigs because of her skin tone.

In an emotional interview with media personality and performing artist Khanyi Mbau on Behind The Story on BET, Pearl broke down about the hate she still gets within the industry and from individuals of the public.

“Because they are light-skinned that’s why they are where they are. Yes, there are privileges, but let’s also look around who’s giving those privileges to them and why they exist in the first place.

“You can’t take those people because they are easy to abuse and they’re in your community and they are accessible and they say, ‘Yes because you’re light-skinned she thinks she’s better’. No, let’s go back to the source on why we have an identity crisis and why we look different and why we are the way we are.”

Pearl included that she doesn’t get it why South Africans, primarily black individuals, toss despise on one another when “we [are] supposed to be on the same side as a country, people and race”.
