Using the word White Supremacy will not be wrong which has been fed to our generation for a long period and we also try to imitate them be it clothing, lifestyle or even skin tone. We know in reality that it is impossible to change the skin tone unless you have resources like Michael Jackson (even he cannot tolerate his real skin colour), but still we run after fairness creams.
Cosmetic companies have made a fortune out of this mentality. I don't have to look far as my real brother used to apply fairness cream to look fairer but in reality he looked uglier.
It is easier to accept yourself as you are rather than trying to imitate someone else and become a monkey. It's lack of self acceptance that cause you to value yourself based on your skin tone rather than your skills and individual traits.
Looks matter but without skilla and self acceptance they are just a gift wrapper.
Live before you leave.
But many people feel that by using these products they appear better. The business organisations in this line of activity are exploiting the weakness of the people and making good money. But this fact is not understood by many of us. We spend money on that.
We can use some naturally available material which will help us to maintain our body naturally and without any problem. Turmeric, Coconut oil, milk, cheese etc are good for painting the skin properly irrespective of the colour of the skin.
