What's there in skin color? Does it matter what color someone has? Does it show the characteristic of someone? Okay,what are colors? Colors exist in different type.Red,yellow,blue..just to name a few. So skin colors are just like those colors.We can accept different colors in life but then why we tend to discriminate people who have dark complexion?If you can accept red for your curtain and green for handbags,why can't you accept someone with dark complexions? They just have different type of color than us! So what's the big deal?
Recently I have came across someone who make a very immature remark on skin color.According to that person,educated girls don't have fair complexion and fair looking girls are not educated meanwhile the other side are expecting a girl that comes in a package! But what's even more appalling is that most of the 'educated' guys (by the way,they're few exceptions) making way for their parents to make this kind of mistakes!!!So there's no difference between these people and those early American who discriminate the Africans.
Even babies are not spared from this issue. As soon as a child is born,the first question that would be asked is whether the baby is fair or not,not even what gender the child belongs too!!!One of my aunt actually applied Fair & Lovely cream to her newborn because her baby has dark complexion.=.=''''
And the cosmetic manufacturers are not helping at all.They often display advertisement that shows the fairer looking girls are more appealing and will receive more marriage proposals than the dark skin girls.
So,this is what we gonna teach our children?
I guess its the time for us to act like humans,real humans..
