I?m going to tell you, though, even the tights are pink ? the color is actually called European pink and is meant to blend in naturally with the white girls? skin. But when I put those pink tights on, you can see my brown skin coming through. I told my ballet teacher that I wasn?t even tryin? to wear pink tights because they are not made for me to wear. How am I gonna put those tights on and pretend that my skin doesn?t show through?? reported?CBS News.
