Yeah all I could think was DUMBASS...she said "oh its the style" wth!
and the little boy wants girls...wow...mad country!

this makes me ashamed to be Jamaican..and they do this a lot in Haiti, other Caribbean islands, India, East Asia, and Africa! People should be PROUD of their skin! (that goes for light people who burn their skin in tanning salons as well)


I love black people but we need to unite and LOVE our skin!
This is a sad world. The mother is a FOOL...sounds bad, but its the TRUTH
Update: Shanice..I am mixed but I GLADLY Identify as black(Jamaican)

Sara. This is not a FEW people. It is an epidemic among black people..and HOW could I hate these people?..I AM JAMAICAN!!! It's just sad that The view that only European beauty is acceptable has affected so many black people...in America as well!
Update 2: JoinMeInTheMiddleOfExtacy
Ummmmmm OKAY then I guess I will have to rephrase this a lil for you:
"We need to Unite as in LOVING our skin...not being fooled into thinking our skin is unnattractive...."
Update 3: Then this! A Black motheon Tyra's show BLEACHES her three sons skin who are about 5 YEARS OLD!! it's just a clip
