I was reading lately that people in India and Africa by skin lightning and bleaching kits at extremely high rates, because “lighter is better”.
On the flip side you have Caucasians tanning themselves because “tan looks better”.
The crazy thing is there is health risks for both trying to lighten and darken skin tones! But it is amazing what people will do to “look right/better” and to “fit in”!
So if there are some dark people are trying to lighten up and some light people are trying to darken up you would think the people in middle with medium skin must be laughing their arses and/or shakin their heads unable to grasp it all!
What a wierd world we live in.
