Is White Better? The lighter you are does that make you prettier? Smarter? More desirable. Many women of color are using bleaching elements to make themselves lighter. And if they are not using the chemicals they may also be doing it by photoshopping to make them appear lighter aka whiter. What does this do for a woman's self esteem? Where is this coming from?

Talking about Colorism Out in the Open
For centuries, there has been a divide within the black race. That divide is of complexion; dark skin blacks and light skin blacks. This divide can be referenced as far back as slavery. As we all have been taught, the lighter skin blacks were hailed worthy to work inside the kitchens or waiting on the slave owners, where dark skin blacks were used in the cotton and tobacco fields. That was the very beginning of a social divide that remains today.On this episode of Hot Topics Talk Radio, we’re going to tackle the topic of “Skin Bleaching”. Thanks to our listener and friend, Karla G, we are bringing this topic to the forefront with the questions of why are so many dark skin blacks willing to put their physical well-being at risk for the sake of having lighter skin. And, is there a cultural disconnect that comes along with skin bleaching? Join us on Friday, February 8, 2013, where we’re going to dig deep into the topic of SKIN BLEACHING: Hating the Skin You’re In. 8pm PST/ 10pm CST/ 11pm ESTCall (646)200-3148 to listen or voice your views.

On this International women’s day we would like to spot light the dangerous trend of skin bleaching among African women, and even the men. Skin bleaching – the practice where dark skinned people use whitening and various exfoliation creams to lighten their skin color is an alarming trend that is plaguing people of native African communities around the globe. The negative medical consequences of severe burns, damage and likelihood of developing skin cancer does not deter people from this practice which leads us to believe that the problem runs deeper than just a poor trend choice. Studies have shown that people repeatedly make such poor choices to secure acceptance, love and regard from their society revealing a deeper problem of low self esteem, self and worth. Today we will explore the origins of skin color, the clinical functions of skin, how the concept of “colorism “ evolved and trends that lead to lighter skin being perceived as better than darker skin. We will examine the dangerous trend of skin bleaching and the dangerous consequences that may arise thereof. Finally we will look at ways we can teach our children some self esteem and self worth.
Please call with your stories and comments on this dangerous trend of skin bleaching across the African continent. We would be glad to speak with you.
It's hard to miss all the rave about the newest LifeWave creation that was just released: Alavida Skin Care line. I've tried it myself and I've gotten a ton of exciting feedback on facebook from those who have tried it out. What really surprised me is the best benefit I personally received had nothing to do with skin (I'll tell you more about that during the interview).
The coolest part about Alavida package is the Alavida patch. It stimulates the production of Epithalamin, a peptide in the Pineal Gland that tends to be low in people and is a potent antioxidant.
When I posted this on facebook, I immediately received pictures of reduced wrinkles, fading aging spots and several comments on how it improved facial complexion and even softer skin around the roughest areas (including the elbows). Oh, and these results were all 3 weeks or less!
I decided that I had to learn more about how this technology works, so I was able to schedule a LIVE interview with the Founder of LifeWave -David Schmidt- to come on my radio show to discuss:
How does Alavida work and how is so different?
What did clinical studies reveal about participants who used Alavida short-term and long-term?
Who is Alavida designed to help and what can the average person expect in 3 -4 weeks of using it?
Be sure to call in to the show for the LIVE Q&A portion at the end of the show.

WHY IN THE AFRICAN AMERICAN COMMUNITY DO WE HAVE THIS SELF HATE AND HATE TOWARDS OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS? THESE ARE MY QUESTIONS THAT I PLAN ON TACKLING AND HOPEFULLY ANSWERING!
