The amount of bleaching products being advertised and used in third world countries is very saddening and is an example of colorism. I have a lot of dark skin friends who are girls, and let me tell you how sad it is that so many people cant see objective beauty behind a dark skin. Or how black women are seen as a lust object instead of sensitive, caring and lovable women. Me and my sister were talking about this quite recently, we are both caramel skinned. Its kind of silly because even though we are also black, we also experience that even within the black community being a "light skin" with 3B hair has its benefits in many ways those friends of mine dont have. Very disheartening. Colorism is like a global virus and no culture is spared from it. From India to China, Africa etc
