    ... its hypocrisy

    You are quite ignorant - how do do ethnic minorities have inferior complexion?
    I already explained why.

    I am curious about your username. You do know that Cleopatra was white don't you ? She was Greek, born in Greece and part of the Greek hellinistic aristocracy ?
    She was born in Alexandria, Egypt.

    Complex, not complexion. Not that I care or agree.

    Yes your right I stand corrected, however she was still decended from the Greek Hellinistic aristocracy.

    I think it's a really sad state of affairs, and scary how much some people feel the need to conform to the typical view of beauty. From the other end of the extreme I'm pale and don't follow the tanning brigade, I think it's sad more people can't feel confident enough in their own skin to love what they have.

    One thing I would say is that aside from beauty in the west typically being a white person, there is also a subculture amongst black people (some, not all) that dark skin blacks are less attractive than light skin blacks so there isn't just the one perspective.

    that's fine, you don't have to accept it. in my personal opinion, its terrible to see many great places like GB struggle with multiculturalism; turning it into a burden instead of a benefit. The onus of the responsibility is not only on immigrants to integrate, but also the government. We're far from perfect in the "Melting Pot" across the Atlantic, but I think that Teresa May's harried crackdown on immigration is more reactive than proactive. And that immigration could have been dealt with better by the last Government.

    Also, Cleopatra may have been Greek, but Greek is not a phenotype or race, it's a nationality (and a language). There are ongoing debates about whether or not she was black or partially so, but based on what Ive learned, I think that she was.

    Also, in a very loose sense of the word, can't a Native Briton also be an ethnic minority?

    But that doesn't have anything to do with the documentary. Take a peek, you might like it NBG

    I don't accept your interpretation, it is an attack on whites pure and simple.

    And yes I do believe multiculturalism is a threat to white society and ethnicity.

    No, look up the definition of Native or indigenous.

    So, basically, naturally "brown" people are disgusting now?

    :erm:
    Don't take it the wrong way natural brown people are NOT disgusting. Thats like calling many of my very close friends disgusting including my family. I'm not rasict at all.

    :confused: All i'm trying to say is too much tan that makes you look like an orange with bleach hair is very stupid. Why will someone look like that.

    Whether being white, brown or black you should be proud and be who you actually are. :cool:

    No, he had vitiligo, try googling/youtubing about it. It is a very rare condition. What I believe Michael Jackson did was when it got to an increased stage, then he started bleaching his skin and making himself 'whiter'.
    so i was half right then!

    i don't see any comments saying anything about hating black people. just some comments about not understanding why some black people want to attempt to be more white.

    Pretty much yeah
    No one can really know the extent he had it, although it's been recognised he had it on his arms. It might not have even affected his face, but he could've bleached all over so that his face and body matched. No one wants to walk around with different colours for different body parts
