Personally if a woman wants to lighten her skin its her business. However, I think this is wrong on so many levels. That society is making more and more black people to feel less inferior & less beautiful because of their blackness.

Why it's time all African countries took a stand on skin lightening creams

Is this different than the people in the west using tanning sprays, creams, tanning booths and laying in the sun to darken their skin?

To be honest all of us are somewhere in the middle. There's really no such thing as a white or black person, we are all shades of brown. This why racism is such a ridiculous thing after all.

Now those purple people... them I can't stand!

Women are just trying to be a little bit lighter skinned than their men. This has been the romantic ideal across most societies around the world for eons.

No to fay shaming, but god dammit if you want lighter skin. Hypocrisy abounds at HillPo.
