1 light skin judgements Thu Jan 13, 2011 3:39 am
i was viewing a forum discussion in some other forum. and i was very dissopointed by the response of majority of people who replied to that topic.
a female asked such simple questions "what is your favorite lightening products, and if it really works, what is the price of this product and where can i get it in the UK" so forth, she mentioned that she was using a cream that burnt her and wants to get somthing better and all that etc....i couldnt reply either hence im not a member but i was amazed but people who are too ignorant in life
people were writing things like:
love the skin you are in, you black girls are so fake, be yourself, why you wanna be white, why are you n*gga people so fake, why do you want to be someone you are not... who told you white is better? and some even mentioned dark models who've made it successful being dark...etc and the list goes on there was 11 pages full of replies and swearing at each other in the forum WOOOOOW...thats quite low..
before i tell you how i felt about those silly comments i need to thank, moderators,administrators and anyone else thats making this forum possible with lots of peace in here.
my point of view is:
i understand that it was a general forum no wonder people who are not interested in that can say what they said...
firstly this girl never said she is black, white,mixedrace, indian, red, blue, hispanic, asian etc
so why did they have to turn a simple product question into a racism discussion?
ANYONE CAN CHOOSE TO LIGHTEN THEIR SKIN. PEOPLE NEED TO BE MORE EDUCATED ABOUT THESE THINGS!!! BLEMISHES,BURNS, ACNE, SUNBURN, DARK CIRCLE AROUND THE EYES,WRONG PRODUCT USE...etc
why dont people pass judgement on a girl trying to tan her skin (again, anyone can CHOOSE to tan their skin). what happened to YOU HAVE ONE LIFE TO LIVE AND DO WHAT WILL MAKE YOU CONFIDENT...??? if you love how your skin, your body weight, your breast etc looks then you leave it as it is and EMBRASS IT. if you dont like something about your body you do something about it before you hit the road of depression, low self-esteem etc isnt that what life is all about?
who am i to judge what my fellow friends,and acquiantance is doing? if they are doing somthing to their body and im against, all i have to do is not follow what they are doing... even if i choose not to lighten my skin, i am still not perfect and i am not GOD to judge you. so someone who chooses to lose weight doesnt love herself? everyone that decided to use hair dye doesnt love their hair colour? someone with a bad smile who doesnt like their teeth and AFFECTS their confidence and decides to get it fixed means they dont want to accept and love what god gave them???? come on....
it is really sad how judgement is thrown around so easily without thinking twice...
i had a friend (she also lightened her skin as i do) and she said OMG "nicki minaj is so fake...breast,nose,hair,skin etc,teeth, curves"...since she is a friend i was brutally honest with her. i told her "you are not any better, live your life and dont pass hate around, its not helping you in anyway to better your self when you pass useless judgements"...she started laughing but i know she was shocked i said that.
really, to stop judgements its starts from every individual to stop saying bad things about others, plus if these stars dont do all these implants then TV will be boring, talk shows will be boring...
id understand if its a 2years old girl wanting to lighten her skin or to get breast implants...but ones you are older to do what you want to do why judge?
think about it....if we should be embrassing ourself the very same way we were born, why do we wear clothes? why do we take a shower? why do we buy soaps, deodorants for our armpits? why to we put mosturizer on our skin not to feel dry and cracked skin etc....why do people smoke or drink alcohol? we were not born with beer bottles in our hands or cigarettes!!! why do we style our hair?why to we WASH OUR HAIR...and so forth...
tell me what you have experinced or friend? or what is your opinion on such things...
