We are the people who are darker than blue.....
Sad, isn't it brother? ... Take a look at this:
Africa : - Are We Ashamed of our Blackness - Africa: Where black is not really beautiful
Excuse me for chop and screwing up your post but I had to break it down to better explain my previous post.
First, you instruct me...
This is so sad. Here in Barbados young women are bleaching too. To think that in the 21st century black folks still have a slave mentality and a hatred of themselves. Their love and self esteem for themselves need to be built up. As I watch the news from Jamaica most of the members of parliament are brown or light skin. In Trinidad the leader of the opposition who hopes to win the election next year has been described as too black. to be a Primeminister. Well, well my heart really aches for my people.
I watched the whole video. It was eye opening and informative. I recall when African Americans in the sixty's here were buying and using bleaching cream. Not for all over but I recall more for uneven skin tones. Knees, elbows and such.
I found this article that sheds some very interesting light on blacks in general. It goes into some of the identity crisis issues. Like in the video the social acceptance written about in the article below. Are discussed and outlined in some detail. I read the first seven of the thirteen pages.
While I disagree wholeheartedly about this statement within the article. The article does have some relevance.
