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.
