Lighten Up

The Journal Times has a blog entitled "Black girls under pressure to be lighter." They are not allowing reader comments, but I will.

While I know it is unhealthy for anyone to not like their looks, I can't help but think we might have stumbled on to the solution for the desegregation issue.

That is just a joke. Lighten up will ya.

Black women are pressured to lighten up, and white women are often working to darken up via a "tan", hmmm ... what does it mean?

Too many people are not grateful for what they have been given. That is what it means to me.

OMG...I feel absolutely ridiculous. I read this blog this morning and after reading it I went to the JT site to read the article. When I saw it was a video I decided I didn't feel like watching it so I went on to something else. All this time until now I thought this was about black girls wanting to be thinner (lighter). God do I feel stupid.

This is off topic...but I wonder if anyone in Racine has written or covered the Long Beach, CA hate crime attack on three white women? I heard about it today and it happened last October. What a stunning contrast the black community has taken about this attack on the white women, and the alleged Duke rape case.

Yeah, and pale and rose people buy suntans in tons. Oh, we are so easily taken - wonderful isn't it.

Short but great post
