Palapala Magazine: Indigenous Nudity, Viewer Discretion Advised: Desexualized Images of Black and Brown People

What I am against is the double standard. When a show comes on TV documenting nudist colonies, why do they not show their indigenous living? Why don’t they show these nudists in their innate, indigenous nudity? Is Western nudity more sacred than other forms of nudity? Why place one form of nudity on a moral pedestal to be revered as if sacred while showing the nude bodies of young Kombai or Masai girls irreverently on TV as part of the landscape?
