These dark skinned chicks stay losing. One minutes they mad at light skinned and white people and then they like "fucking it where the bleach cream at" I think we all show love the skin we are in. Colorism is something else

Doesn't matter what color she is, she's still black and still a bitch no one will like. Ask Stacy Dash:

She has dark skinned hurt & rejection. I know & got over it. She is very ugly on the inside. She should focus on that

Dark colored woman are usually teased from siblings, they play ground, elementary school and part of Junior High. By this time, they have a complex before reaching adulthood. I know someone that calls his sister blacky...she is eight. The parents never said shit. I corrected his behaviored quick! I asked him if he would like others to sort to name calling? And how he will feel? Explaining words are hurtful and at times people can't move on or developed when this is constantly told to them. He understood he is 14....But his entire family are dysfuntional..mainly the parents that stay high blowing weed all day

I am a medium brown, Werther's Original http://www.werthers-original.us/ colored African (aka black person) and would love to be darker, but fuck putting any extra effort into tanning. Whatever tan I get from just being out in the sun is good enough for me. I'm not ruining my skin with that mess.

How does skin bleaching even work? If a white person uses tanner, it doesn't make their skin darker, it just paints a colour on top of the skin. What is bleach doing? Turning the top layer of already dead skin a lighter colour? It can't change your DNA...

@7:51pm the only ppl who actually have to put any effort in tanning are Caucasians. It's THEIR skin that actually gets ruined from it because of the lack of melanin.

k rutledge said...

Dear azelia, please bleach that bottom lip.

@8:30 with the tanning.

NO. That's why a higher % of black people diagnosed with skin cancer die compared to white people diagnosed. Because black people think they can't get skin cancer, so they don't get checked. PLEASE RED THIS:

http://www.skincancer.org/prevention/skin-cancer-and-skin-of-color

"Caucasians are the primary victims of skin cancer. However, everyone, regardless of skin color, can fall prey to it. Unfortunately, many patients and even some physicians are under the impression that non-Caucasian people are immune to this disease. That is one reason people of color are diagnosed with skin cancer at later stages. These delays mean that skin cancers are often advanced and potentially fatal, whereas most skin cancers are curable if caught and treated in a timely manner. Tragically, this is what happened to legendary reggae musician Bob Marley: What was dismissed as a soccer injury under his toenail turned out to be an aggressive form of melanoma that ultimately caused his death at 36. Mr. Marley’s story reminds us why both medical providers and the public need to be educated about skin cancer and skin of color."

9:50 please provide a link WITH PiCTURES of black ppl with skin cancer....Not mulattoes but actually black ppl. And while you are at it, post a link of the percentage of black ppl that actually died from the sun's rays. So far Bob Marley is all you can muster and he did NOT die from skin cancer from tanning or the sun---please stay on topic.We are talking about the skin and the effects of tanning---WTF does Bob Marley's toenail have to do with this?

@12:31 There was skin cancer under that toe nail. The skin cancer killed him. Because cancer doesn't care how much melanin you have. Black people get skin cancer. Fact. You don't have to believe me. Facts are true whether you believe in them, or not. Black people get skin cancer, and they die from it. That's how cancer works. Fact. Do your own research. You need to learn how.

The point is don't tan. Wear sunblock. Skin cancer kills people.

1:12 man your skull is THICK!! I will state this ONCE AGAIN----this brief topic is about tanning and WHICH RACE OF PPL THAT SUFFER THE MOST FROM EXCESSIVE TANNING AND SUN EXPOSURE! Not once did I imply that blk ppl do not get cancer or die from it. You seriously need to focus if you are going to argue a point---your debate skills are horrible!

Anonymous said...

1:30am tell that to the millions upon millions of black African and Indian ppl who havr no idea what sunblock is and never suffered so much as as a bruise from being cooked in the sun. You know as well as I do who sunblock was made for.
I once spent 8 hours on beach ( I fell asleep) my skin didn't even peel. Myself and all my blk friends do NOT burn in the sun---it loves us!

To each her own so they say, but Azealia looks way better with her natural skin color.
