CNN just posted a story about Skin whiteners being labeled as racist in Asia.
I'm not gonna say "I told you so".
Oh wait, I kinda just did. Didn't I?
Well, I told you that this wasn't a nice thing way back in February. The proof is right here.
I don't care if it's a difference in culture or not. It's discriminatory and it continues society's belief that you must look a certain way to be beautiful.
That is wrong wrong wrong.
Everyone is beautiful in their own way. Brown skin, yellow skin, pink skin; it's all beautifully different.
Let's throw away these bottles of whitener and love the skin we were born with.
It's time for society to teach self esteem rather than an unrealistic standard of beauty.
I'll get off my soap box now.
