    All this "there are some beautiful dark-skinned women out there" sh*t is ridiculous.

    All dark skinned women are beautiful.

    This is not my opinion, this is fact.

    I am an African woman.
    Member of the Black Concsiousness Movement.
    This is disgusting.
    Garvey, Biko, Selassie, Nkrumah, Malcolm X are all rolling in their graves to see such a mighty race fallen to such depths.
    It is repulsive.
    We sit here and fight about our issues among whites....it is repulsive.

    If these women knew their history.
    --Knew what it meant once to be African, Ku****e, Hermite...they would not be using White-Man-Witchcraft to **** with their skin.

    Melanated women.
    We are God.

    Some people are simply not happy with the tone of there skin. I feel sad for black people who feel the need to bleach there skin but its all personal choice. Some people just aren’t happy with themselves full stop. They have nose jobs, boob jobs, tattoo there eyebrows on wear fake lashes etc..

    yeah, but when people whiten their skin, they do it because white skin is considered more refined by many cultures--asia especially.

    whitening skin makes some people looks better, just as tanning makes some white people look better.

    yeah, but, thats not he point. skin colour is not who you are. if you want to whiten or darken skin tone, it makes no difference.

    Maybe so, and I do think by bleaching your skin as a black person all you are doing is reinforcing what white people thought about us in the first place but at the same time in today’s culture people are so unhappy with so many parts of there body I wouldn’t say its just about race anymore its just another thing for black people to moan about. “ohhh I’m 2 dark” “I wish I had lighter skin” “I wish my nose was thinner and straight” and then white people go “which I was a bit darker” “I wish I had a bigger bum” “I wish I was curvy” “I wish my boobs were bigger” “I wish my lips were bigger” just be happy with the body you have!

    meh it swings both ways - a lot of white women see the need to tan and a lot of white women see the need to bleach. If you ask me , both are stupid and probably dangerous. At the end of the day it's personal choice. I can't imagine that a black woman with bleached skin actually looks white anyway?

    so what did ALL white people think of blacks?


    but i agree, its easier to be happy with what you have. but if people do want to lighten their skin, i'm not sure why it should be tied up with what rich colonial elites thought of colonial subjects.

    Well they thought we were ignorant, stupid and good at labouring lol and wanting to bleach your skin is pretty ignorant of everything that black people have been working hundreds of years to change. Imagine Mr.King could see that 21st century girls want to bleach there skin he would be so disappointed in what we have become but once again its all personally choice. I’m not saying that white people think that now but during the slave trade this was the general view.

    Seriously, I think it's pretty superficial, you should be proud of who you are ... but you don't know what experiences have led her to believe that being black disadvantages you, she could have a perfectly valid reason.

    200 years ago when slavery was abolished most white people had never even heard of the slave trade.

    i doubt most white people had even heard of africa, let alone had opinions of black people.


    slavery was a business partnership between rich white slave traders and dominant african tribal leaders who sold their captives-- before rich white elites started buying slaves from africa, it was poor white people who worked the plantations.

    all slaves throughout history-black or white- were relegated to lower status. it has nothing to do with skin colour. skin colour was simply a way to identify slaves in america because the slaves at that time happened to be black.

    But bleaching her kids skin at such a young age is right? Regardless of this 'valid reason'?

    I'd understand..say her kids were older of an age say 18..possibly 17 where they can make up their own mind..but thats frankly ridiculous..

    In regards to her..thats her own choice... but the kids aspect is overly wrong imo.
