From the time I can remember I saw black folks who wanted their skin a lighter shade.
I have always stated that I am black and I dont see the sense in try to make my skin lighter.
Recently I saw a documentary on skin bleaching in Jamaica and I was really appalled.



BLEACHING EPIDEMIC INNA JAMAICA ! !.. WHOLE BAGGA FOOLISHNESS!!


Cake Soap: Skin Bleaching in Jamaica (Documentary)


I am not oondemning them but I feel so sorry for them. Interestingly enough one of Jamaica's Reggae Artist Bob Marley penned this song.

Redemption song
Bob Marley - Redemption Song Lyrics | MetroLyrics

Two lines in the song

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery
None but ourselves can free our mind.


If we do not like who we are, do we expect others to.

Symbol of American the feeling of inferiority is still with us. There was a time here in Barbados when only light skinned people could work in the banks and it most private companies when the black educated found work those who were white and light skinned did not want to work there. (The whites whether they are from here on overseas still control the banks. ) This goes to show that we have to re-educate our people> The educational videos for children focus on lighter skin.

Some parents were responsible for this sense of inferiority. If a black woman happened to marry a lightskinned man you would always find the darker skinned one did chores that the lighter one refused to do. The lighter one was treated in a special way. These people forget that the light came as a result of the white plantation owners raping most of our ancestors.

No wonder white folks believe that we mimmick them and make them feel superior.

A vigorous educational campaign is needed.
Thanks for your links.
