Juliet Ibrahim "Men just use girls for a period of time to show off"

“Men have that mentality, they just use you for a period of time to show off but when it comes to making you a wife, it’s a problem. And I have a lot of mixed race friends that go through the same problem…till now".

Though she does not believe her fair complexion got her extra favours in her rise to the top  as an actress, musician cum philanthropist Juliet Ibrahim is of the view that men are quick to use and dump fair girls.

“Being mixed race has drawbacks in a wider context too. What people refuse to see is that when you’re mixed race you don’t have everything come easy to you.

“I have that issue with guys. They think you’re so pretty and attractive, you’re always going to have other guys come around you and you can never be trusted… you can never be in a serious relationship,” she said in an interview with this day live.

According to the mother of one, men only want to show off their fair girlfriends but when it comes to choosing them for a wife, they turn to look elsewhere.

“Men have that mentality, they just use you for a period of time to show off but when it comes to making you a wife, it’s a problem. And I have a lot of mixed race friends that go through the same problem…till now".

Citing a situation where her complexion did not be of help, she said; ““No. No, I don’t think so. Because of my complexion, I’ve suffered a lot. If I have a role to play, say the lead character’s parents are black, they’ll tell me because I’m mixed race, I can’t play the role, I have to play the friend of the lead character and they’ll bring a dark-skinned girl to play the same role.”

Addressing the perception that she became who she is today because of her complexion, she said; “So the complexion doesn’t do anything different for you. I go through a lot of issues as well but I don’t let my complexion be the major thing. It’s my talent that will speak for me at the end of the day.”
