    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Dr. Phil had a show on today, about changing one's race, to be attractive.

    He featured Asians wanting eyelid surgery, so they can look more western.

    He featured an Italian, that wanted a nose job, because his was so big.

    He did not feature one Black Person, even though we collectively change ourselves (hair and skin), to appear closer to white.

    It's as though us doing this, has become so normal, that no one notices (or cares about) our self-destructive behavior.

    In addition, if he had Black people on there, talking about they hate their own hair or color, it would have to be mentioned that this mind-set is rooted in slavery (which all of white america has benefited from). While all the other examples he featured, could arguably be considered, individual choices ... with no historical influence. So no, i guess he aint finna tackle this problem.

    It's ours. If there is anything done about it, any attention given to it, we must do it ourselves.

    :heart:

    Greetings Mother Destee,

    I'm amazed myself at how well this trend has been moving along. Take a look at South Korea for example, the center of a plastic surgery boom. And why? Because Koreans have an "eye" complex. Everyone is running out to erase their slanted eyes to appear more Caucasian.

    And for years Michael Jackson has been ridiculed for lightening his skin color. Yet Black Hollywood has been doing this for years also.

    It is up to us to corner this problem, isolate it, study it and come to the proper overstanding. Black goes so well with everything. But a blonde weave with blue contacts isn't always cute. It seems like most people these days, feel better if they can pass for white, no matter the race.

    It could be because, if even for positive or negative reasons we give Whites far too much attention than they deserve. Yet I often wonder, if we could build a conversion booth, where all one had to do is step into it, we would be transformed into a desired result. I wonder how many of us would choose to be White.

    In the future that conversion booth will be the Doctor's office. As they learn more and more about DNA, and what can be changed- it may be possible to "graft" ourselves into Whites in the future. And if that be the case, it may be karma as well. Because being "white" for a price won't work out well for real Whites. If Tyrone down the street can become Tom from accounting in 2-3 months. Then the question would be, which white is right?

    Humm, sounds like I have another good story on my hands.

    I dont watch DR PHIL so I will take your word for IT.

    My question is WHY NOW?

    Why are MANY people CURIOUS in CHANGING their RACE more so PUBLICALLY with a NATIONAL VIEWING AUDIENCE?

    This stuff is INTERNAL STUFF. It was PRIVATE STUFF back then.

    Just like PORNOGRAPHY was PRIVATE STUFF. Now mainly SADISTIC WHITE MEN have GRADUATED from the regular PORN STUFF to SAME SEX PORNO and again they graduated from there to CHILD PORNOGRAPHY and graduated from THAT to actually SEDUCING and SNATCHING young CHILDREN.

    I am not talking POOR WHITE PEOPLE. The background of many PEDAPHILES are from PROFESSIONAL and GOVERNMENT CLASSES. And so are their FAMILY MEMBERS and COMMUNITY.

    What happened?

    Now its PUBLIC STUFF for the NATIONS eyes and ears to BEAR. It's almost NORMAL as SEXUAL PREFERENCES.

    Now is it TIME to BRING it EXTERNALLY. Have we now been SCHOOLED ENOUGH to want to GRADUATE.

    This is SCARY STUFF.

    But I know its their OWN BODY and their OWN MIND can do as they PLEASE.

    Oh well.

    Greetings all - I'm new here. I didn't see an introductions thread so forgive me if I've made a faux pas here but I've recently become aware of the subject of this thread and found it very strange myself.

    I've read about the (recent? I don't know) trend of Asian people - even those in Asian countries - undergoing plastic surgury to modify their eyelids. Reports from those who have had, or who support, such procedures seem to indicate that it's not being done for the sake of "Westernization" so to speak as much as it is to create a "more expressive" or "friendlier-looking" eye. This could be biased information on their part though - the sources of these reports include a clinic that performs such surgeries. I can't seem to find the link now as it's been over a week since I saw it. Sorry for not providing a link.

    Again, I don't know what makes a double eyelid (one with a fold on the upper eyelid) more "expressive" or "friendly-looking" than an eye characteristic of some Asian people without the fold. I don't watch Dr. Phil or Tyra so I did not catch any details exposed there.

    One thing that should be mentioned is that a double eyelid is not exclusively non-Asian. Many Asian people - predominantly female Asians (at least in the South Korean population) have a genetic double eyelid like Whites, Blacks, Native Americans, Arabs, etc. So a case could be presented that those undergoing eyelid modification surgery are doing so to look more like a certain segment of their own population, rather than to appear more like members of the western population, caucasian, whatever.

    I'm not making this case myself - merely stating the possibility.

    Did the people featured on Dr. Phil claim to have undergone the surgery with the express intent to appear more caucasian specifically?

    HWD, you're probably right and I think they're dying their hair blonde to look like some naturally blonde asian group I saw on discovery channel. :rolleyes: not even, they are trying to look like u.

    I saw this on cnn once. one asian girl said asian women that were considered beautiful had wide eyes, and she wanted to be beautiful too so she got the surgery

    "Did the people featured on Dr. Phil claim to have undergone the surgery with the express intent to appear more caucasian specifically?"
    They won't admit it, instead they'll say stupid stuff like
    wide eyes look more "expressive" or "friendly-looking"
    straight hair fits my face better
    I look better with platinum blonde hair
    straight hair is more manageable
    light skin is more feminine
    blue eyes bring out my inner demon. lol j/k

    Non-white people will even hold true to that which is as insidious as race. Race is Racism. If you are a member of a race you are a race-ist.

    How is it that we, a people of all time, accept that we are members of a race...a concept that isn't even a thousand years old? Are we so hopelessly dependent on the dream to be like those who mistreat and oppress us? The ones who call themselves white? They claim to be a race and tell us that we are like them and like children we fashion our ideas after theirs we fashion our thoughts after theirs we even fashion or behavior after theirs. Like a child who likens themselves after adults we act it out. We hold dear the concept of race to us. To relieve our minds of our longing to be like them we will shout down each other...to be part of it...to be part of them...to be them. A race of black people? How insideous.

    We are black people. We are not a black race. We are victims of race.
