You need to go learn the difference between opinion and fact. Skin whitening is also a billion dollar industry. There is a world outside of the US.

People bleach to whiten their skin......for them, the whiter, the better. I would know since I am from Asia and know more about this....:)

It is funny, the word "karma" is written on top of our icon and yet you say such disgusting words. I hope you know how karma works:)

Also, pale white skin IS beautiful. Just like how the moon is pale and beautiful.

Of course all skin tones are beautiful. I never said anything bad about darker skin tones, it was you coming and saying "tan is more beautiful than pale skin and that is a fact". That is very hurtful.

I think karma is both what you say and what you do. Words are like knives and can cut someone.

you know what I apologize but I thought you were just another racist attacking black people! That's all we see on this forum talk about " words cut like a knife" hell most of the white people that come to this forum are mean as hell calling us hurtful names so in turn we fight back!

I am sorry that so many people are racist, but I certainly was not trying to be racist. I am not even comfortable talking about this in an African American Forum. Most black people don't care if white people tan or don't tan, lol, like there are more important things out there.

It is very strange....I have found that a lot of forums on topix are really unhealthy and dumb.

I can say what I want just like you and common sense will tell you that if I'm getting attacked I'm going to talk shi right back! I know exactly how karma works do you? I personally don't think you understand what it means. Pale white skin is not beautiful it's the person that can be beautiful. Again you trip on my comments YET all the idiots talking crap about darker skin gets a pass? Don't be a hypocrite

I personally don't think you understand what karma means as well. If pale white skin is not beautiful then dark skin is not beautiful as well....no skin color is beautiful, considering it is the person that is beautiful.

KARMA has nothing to do with skin color that's for sure!! When it comes to beauty a person has the right to their opinion if something thinks that pale white skin is ugly that's their business just like you get racists on here saying that we are TURD color and calling us TAR colored. That's their opinion as well we all have our preferences and opinions.

Who said anything about Karma being related to skin color. No shit people have their opinions. If people in Asian countries prefer pale white skin and view it as their standard of beauty for thousands, then that is their preference just like how you said. Nobody is wrong when it comes to preferences, like or hate whatever skin color.

Tanning won't save you when the ozone dries up. Lol. You can't get what god didn't give you naturally. I love my melanin. The best thing god gave us was melanin. It's the way he protects us from the real weapon of mass destruction. The Sun.
Tanning is gaining more melanin in the skin, even for those with light skin.

You're born with more melanin on the skin already because your ancestors "tanned" all day, every day for thousands of years in Africa, near the equator.

Others can get the same if they remain closer to the equator for hundreds or thousands of years: Look at Indians, or other Asians in South East Asia.

It's called "environmental adaptation," kid; stop thinking you're special, when you're not. ;-)
