    WOW​
    i’d like to read this………..​
    She looks totally DIFFERENT! Like its a dramatic change.​
    oh wow​
    You have got to be kidding me​
    Wow. I mean, people can do whatever they want, but wow. She was pretty before the surgeries. Wow. I feel so sorry for her.​
    I immediately had to to google this because … wow, there’s so much happening here. Everything I’m reading just makes my heart hurt even more for this woman. Lighter skin and changed facial features did not make her happier - in fact, she attempted suicide not long after this was published. Really though, my heart. I hope she finds peace.
    Socially induced body dysmorphiabut racism doesn’t affect our mental health. Oh. Okay.
    Exactly. Whole nations of people bathing in skin lightening creams because they don’t feel attractive or attempting to attain the eurocentric beauty of some media starlett….The chosen light skinned queen of the era.
    Kids picking on others for big noses and lips. Being dark or having kinky hair… This kind of bullying just doesn’t spontaneously generate.

    I assume both pictures are pictures of the same woman and if so then this is ridiculous. Tired of being ugly? Nah, looks like she was tired of being black. Unfortunate indeed.

    WOW!! :eeek:



    'how her man loves her more now???'

    he's got to be a white boy, for her to think she was ugly in the first place because she was kinda dark skinned. If he is black, he needs to be thrown over the fence at the bronx zoo with a bottle of clorox bleach where they keep the lions and let him try to convince the lions of how ugly they are and how they are in need of bleaching.

    :eeek: They look so different as night and day
    her before pic if you look close she was a beautiful shade brown skin
    and the after pic made her look half dead / like a mix child because you
    can see the black in her as well something else and shame on her man
    I'll see if he like her 5 maybe 7 years from now when her skin change from the bleach
    while she walking now thinking she pretty on the outside them man made dies/ bleach
    chemicals........NO it's not safe nor good for the skin or a sistah of sweet beauty !

    here's why !!!!
    hydroquinone cream, skin bleaching meaning that it prevents skin from making the substance
    giving skin its color. ... In the bone marrow, long-term effects such as aplastic anemia and acute
    Hydroquinone is a very powerful chemical that it used as the key ... Bleaching creams work by
    stripping the skin of its natural pigmentation. scary !!!!
    hydroquinone and toxins like mercury can cause serious harm to the under skin that will rip and kill
    the cells often within days you will need face cream/ make-up / blush and all kind of stuff to cover
    the broken skin yuckkkkkk!!!!
    In an allegedly post-racial society,it stil telling us that light skin is still put on a pedestal ... wow!!!!
