And it's not just because of the fake bleached skin either, but the fake hair and plastic surgery to try and hide her negroid traits.

It's a bit disappointing but white features being more attractive than black features has been an ideal promoted throughout the Americas since blacks and whites inhabited the Western continents. Beyonce is taking it to the severe Michael Jackson/Sammy Sosa level here but it's as simple as black women getting perms. The process was torture in the past, I'm not sure it's as bad now or if they have modern "relaxers" that make it easier to deal with but regardless it wouldn't be happening if girls didn't think straight hair looked better. It's a pretty sad thing that people almost never talk about because it's an uncomfortable subject.

well she looks hot either way, so i don't give a sh*t


well, that's not true. i care. maintaining cultural identity is important, if only because you owe your own life to the way your ancestors lived theirs.

that said, i'd say this author has a pretty warped sense of culture. she's right in criticizing the western beauty standard for its impact on how non-western young girls self identify. she's 100% wrong in putting as much stock into skin tone as she does. a betrayal of culture can happen in millions of different ways, and altering skin tone is only one of them. if you want to argue that everybody should be perfectly happy with their race because it doesn't matter, then you've got to recognize the flip side of that; if people want to become lighter, it still doesn't matter. and that's especially if those same girls who lighten their skin tone have a very healthy attitude toward their ancestral culture, in areas that are far and away more important; religious traditions, holidays, profession, general ethics; all of these cultural categories outweigh skin colour by a long shot. as they should, because once again, RACE DOESN'T MATTER.

this has nothing to do with race no more than white people filling up tanning salons does.

Isn't she half white?

She's been acting black for most of her life, it's time to rep the otherside of her color.

The obsession people have with race is annoying as hell.

The only people that actually want to be black are the lamest of white guys.
