A Skin BLEACHING Family??! Jamaica?

I heard of this! 3 yrs ago I visited Jamaica(my country) and people came up to my sister saying how in the country, people bleach to get her complexion.

but WATCH THIS! it disgusts me!!!

Yeah all I could think was DUMBASS...she said "oh its the style" wth!

and the little boy wants 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

    I saw the Tyra Show (since I'm in the state) and was shocked.

    It's sad but understandable with some things that happens.

    I hate the very concept of 'bleaching' it shows a lack of self esteem and the absence of self worth. We should celebrate who we are, our uniqueness. It always amazes me that caucasians will spend hundreds of dollars on tanning products and burn all day in the sun to look like us. They put collagen in their lips so that it can be thick like ours, they invest thousands in the Brazilian Butt Lift to have some junk in the trunk. Yet, here we are putting our health at risk to look like them.

    I must admit that in Jamaica bleaching is a fad. Unfortunately, both men and women engage in this dangerous behavior. They look quite ridiculous with clear faces and dark arms and legs.

    I don't know what it will take for our people to realize that we were fearfully and wonderfully made by God and we should love who we are, just as we are.

    You should read Laura Jefferson’s book "Skin Whitening At Home" ( I saw it's also available in electronic format +video: ). After 8 weeks I managed to get my skin a few tones whiter and I also got rid of freckles.

    The method she teaches in her book is natural, inexpensive, and is readily available in most homes. You could even find some ingredients in your own backyard. The most wonderful thing about the method she shares in her book is that it will help you whiten or lighten your skin pigmentations, freckles, age spots, acne marks, dark underarms, melasma, or your overall skin color easily and naturally without breaking your bank or producing dangerous side effects. Good Luck!

    This is sad how people are not happy with themselves. I hate the stigma that being dark is ugly. Look how they turn brown sugar into white sugar, brown rice into white rice. We need to look within ourselves and see how God made us wonderfully and marvelously into his own image.
