http://www.examiner.com/x-17746-Phi...-Sammy-Sosa-stuns-many-with-his-new-skin-tone In summary of the above article, former baseball player Sammy Sosa has undergone a "skin rejuvenation" procedure, and as a side effect, it has lightened his skin considerably. A quick Google search (sammy sosa bleached skin) will reveal that every nation on the planet is buzzing about this, from Canada to India to Korea. The change in his skin tone and the new green contacts he has...smh. I know it is his life, his money, his body, but it sends the wrong message that people of color want to be as close to white as possible. Someone once said that athletes don't always make the best role models. They may be right about that.
