Jamaican dancehall star Spice calls out the hypocrisy of people who discriminate against dark skinned women in her new music video "Black Hypocrisy".
Many in the Black community say Spice is a hypocrite for bleaching her own skin, but her light skin is just an illusion created with makeup and lighting.
The Love & Hip Hop: Atlanta star calls out dark skinned sistas who use potent medications and skin creams to strip out their melanin so they can fit society's standard of beauty.

Spice goes on to sing in her native Patois language:

Proud a me color,
Love the skin that I'm in
[Burn] racism, demolish colorism
