Wow! This is getting out of hand…
See, this is the product of colorism. This is the product of the old “Lighter is better,” syndrome that plagues the African Diaspora, all descendents of Africans everywhere.
This is ridiculous and you know what? It’s not even the white people that is coming down on us for our skin color….IT’S OUR OWN PEOPLE!!!!
We shouldn’t complain about the “white man,” anymore, we’re doing just as much damage, probably even more.
My hope is that this fad does not come into America. My hope is that nuts like Vybez Kartel’s message doesn’t resonate with every person that hears his songs. My hope is that Jamaicans know that their skin is lovely and beautiful.
