Skin lightening is a HUGE thing is Asia — see Fair and Lovely — and it has less to do with…

Creatrix Tiara Girl, I have the same problem! Yet, I still like my skin and my features and my hair, so it’s not me. After finding all of these people saying they feel ugly for being dark, I feel that it’s because they have an insecurity that makes them think only white people can be creative or talented or funny. So if you come along and are dark with no white features and you’re successful, it makes people really angry.

Because if you’re dark and smart and people like you, then it’s not the color but the person. You know what I mean? It’s like, in their hearts, they don’t believe they can be equal, and neither should you.

Most of my jobs and opportunities come from white people. I accept it and am grateful. Maybe one day, before I die of old age, black people will like me and hire me, too. Maybe. But probably not…LMFAO!!!
