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.
"Light skin v.s. Dark skin"
"Stereotypes such as Light Skin Vs. Dark Skin within the Black community are cancerous, dangerous, and shape how we view ourselves and our people. Fortunately, we can solve this problem by teaching and mentally reshaping how we’ve been trained to think and behave"
Ben "Teflon" Walton
Summer or winter, sometimes skin can use a little pampering. For centuries, herbs have been used for just that purpose – and today, we’ll talk a little about a few useful plants for the skin care tool kit.
(Disclaimer: This program is not meant to discuss medical information, diagnosis or treatment for any medical condition. Its purpose is for entertainment, and to encourage the listener to research further into the subject of herbal skin care.)

Skin Color, whether we want to believe it or not, is still the elephant in the living room in the hearts of Black people the world over.
While many Black people will readily cry out at the first sign of what they may feel is an encounter with racism, some of those same individuals will execute the same twisted mentality when dealing with people who are of their own race.
Other races of people will look on from the outside of this type of hypocrisy and remain befuddled as it just doesn't seem to add up properly.
How can one complain about being prejudged because of the color of their skin yet turn around and do the same damn thing to some of their own?
Most would agree that this behavior has been internalized after being made to believe that we are truly inferior after hundreds of years of mental indoctrination while in slavery.
This is the case all the way up to the present time with the media brainwashing that continues to perpetuate these foolish myths.
Too many Black people are buying into this hook, line and sinker!
"SOME" Blacks who are of a lighter skin complexion can oftentimes feel superior to those who are darker. Many (BUT NOT ALL!) darker complected Blacks feel as sense of inferiority when compared to the lighter skinned Blacks when it comes to the expected treatment that they feel they will get when going up for a job or being considered by a potential romantic partner.
Let me officially say that THIS IS NOT ALL!
But many of us who are truly conscious and know better can sometimes slip into this twisted way of thinking in our everyday lives.
While many will defend those hateful practices of plastic surgery to alter their features or bleaching cream to lighten their skin, the fact of the matter is that self hate is a huge business and those who seek to profit from it is are all wolves in sheeps clothing.
