Before




After

Does anyone like her before (original dark color) or after (lightskinned color)?

It looks very natural and she doesn't appear washed out. I just wish i knew what she did to get to that color. Obviously, she would get waaay more attention in her after pictures.

Anyone who's bleached their skin (and I know quite a few). It NEVER looks Natural. Even here, you see her weave, and the skin is way too uneven and I know no lighter skinned woman who has that tone naturally. Yuck. She should've just learned to love herself.

I always bristle at the sight of bleached skin. It's so depressing that "light is right" is so prevalent to the point where people are risking permanent damage (scarring, uneven tone, even worse) all for the sake of being "beautiful." Your dark skin was already beautiful. Hell, your light skin was already beautiful. Why is that so hard to believe?

Agreed. +10000

When I take the train in the mornings, you can see some who bleach their skin, like their neck is a different shade than their face, their hands are different colors.

Like who cares if you're not mainstream. Find someone who will like you for you. Especially if you are someone with your own preferences.

Bleaching your skin doesn't mean that more guys will like you. As a black woman I find it really sad that people feel like they have to do that. I used to think I was ugly because I am not white and that no guys would ever want me. Now I have developed more confidence and I am in a relationship with a wonderful man that loves me a lot and finds me beautiful. Nyanna, if you are an actual black woman and not just a troll who makes threads/posts for laughs, I hope you work on being more confident in your skin.

I happen to think her coloring looks very natural in the after picture. People are only saying negative things because they know she bleached.

Less acceptance by other races (even those inside your race)
Poor service when you go dining, retail
Less overall respect by society

Its not just about finding a man, but the fact that universally many people find lighter toned individuals less threatening and they tend to be much more accepting of them.

I think you're right! She is actually gorgous.

If you could change your race, would you be happy to be a Hispanic girl or an Asian girl?
