Ok ever since i was a child i would see people like these, individuals of a dark ethnic background...bleaching his/her skin for reasons still unclear to me. I was told however that they did this to be desired more. Being close to light -skin or white was preferred because people would accept you more. There was a thread on here the other day about "racial preference" being another way of being racist. I believe that this might be an effect of such prejudice. Now look at this individual...I always thought he was soo handsome and very attractive. But i dont know why he did this to himself....then i remember what type of society we live in. One where self worth is still measured by ones skin tone. This individual......im at a lost of words....sammy sosa....i have lost respect. In order to be more white he bleached his skin...permed his hair...and put in light brown contacts....this is the result of color picking. People need to learn to accept themselves. The aim of the thread is to explain why individuals resort to skin bleaching.
