Y’all are wrong for saying Pearl Thusi is lying for saying she was bullied for being light skinned has a child. I grew up in the rural areas and I was called “inkawu”, “ilawu” “nobomvu” and most of the times I was told “awukho mhle qha wenziwa kukuba mhlophe”. So I believe her.

Pearl Thusi wants to deny that her skin gives her privilege when she’s just as irritating as Ntsiki Mazwai but who’s the social outcast?
Cause nobody wants to listen to a “whining” Black, dark skinned woman. But everybody is giving PT a platform, thus validating her experiences
Pearl Thusi and other people with similar skin tones were definitely teased growing up. However, they were also praised. Even today they are teased…and also praised. Please leave us alone now.
