With some yes this is sadly true but for many we simply prefer a lighter shade for OURSELVES, maybe if lightening wasn't such a taboo more people would know this.
Well Sweety I dont care what people have to say about my skin lightening....I DONT CARE WHAT PEOPLE SAY MOST DARK SKINNED PEOPLE ESPECIALLY DARK SKINNED PEOPLE IN AMERICA COVET LIGHTER SKIN...
if they didn't they wouldn't be making such a big deal when people lighten.
my department psychologist pulled me into his office yesterday and asked me out of "concern" what was happening to my pigment.
And I responded with ignorance "what do you mean?"...he kept going on and on about the dramatic difference and how I looked like michael jackson when he was in the middle of his transformation...so I continued to play dumb
and he was like "no one else has said anything to you?" so I said no..well except for my cousin and boss.. (LIES!!! EVREYONE HAS BEEN SAYING STUFF TO ME!!!)
I made sure to menstion the complements I got from a friend of mine..
and he even said.."some people in society tend to link lighter skin with beauty"
in my mind i was like SOME PEOPLE?????? I'VE SEEN HIS PICTURES OF HIS FAMILY IN HIS OFFICE!!! he is a georgeous man! he looks alot like the rock (Dwayne Johnson)BODY AND ALL the wrestler/actor. his wife is light skinned and so is his daughter so I dont know what the h*ll he was talking about he's one of those people.
people are sooo ignorant...the eye pics up features much better or much more clearly when the individual is light skinned! thus people are able to depict spesific traits easily! rearch has proved it that darker skin, espeically very dark skin tends to startle people and even to an extent tend to make them feel uncomfortable.
I'm not gonna stop I'm sorry....and I think I just might go as light as michael jackson cause my mono just arived today!
