    Defines your "real" beauty?



    The kids won't be white. How early should they start "whitening"?

    Just doesn't seem white, er, right.

    White skin has always been popular because historically the Whiter you were the less likely it was that you worked outside for a living and were part of the Ruling Class.

    My Professor told this joke in a class I took some 30 years ago:

    He said that in the 60's a Black guy asked him during class if "Black was Beautiful". He said "No, Black is NOT Beautiful. White is not beautiful either rather the dark brown skin tone that I HAVE is Beautiful!" :D

    Or we could just let people make their own decisions. Leftist hand-wringing about people not fitting into the cultural stereotypes the left assigns them is not required.

    OK, rdean. You get on a plane, land in Mumbai, and start announcing to them how racist they are for using whitening cream. Then report back to us on your success.
