Just lately I have been seeing more and more adverts on the t.v and in the mags about black people needing to wear sun cream to stop themselves geting burnt.

My question is:

Do we really need it or is it just the media trying to make us feel less secure about or skin tone thereby making themselves feel better about needing to use it?

Do any bw or bm actually use it? I know I don't and I'm a light skinned women of Caribbean origin.

No we dont need any sunblock we process the full light spectrum into energy in fact our form of melanin eumelanin is the physical manifestation of the entire elctro magnetic spectrum. meaning we are pure light born into flesh dark matter and energy born. which is why some of our relatives are and most of our ancestors were blue black. from blue black we sexually grafted down to white and complete loss of pure light.

Take notice everyone. This is what drugs can do to your mind if addictions are left untreated.

^^Well that is what I thought but keep your eyes open for the adverts over there in the States because you might soon start to see little black boys and girls being encouraged to rub in that sun cream.

Nivea are advertising the benefits of it for us at the moment. I have to laugh when I see it.

Are yo talking to me? I posted the question due to the fact that all over England at the moment you can see ads for black boys and girls to start using sun cream. I was just wonderingv if thery had started to do it in America and what the reasons behind it are.

So, you were saying?

How come I do not know ONE black person, nor have I even HEARD of any black person, ever to get skin cancer? Why is it that NO black person I know, knows of any black person to get skin cancer? Methinks the sun-cream companies are after our money!!!

Its rare are black person gets skin cancer, but sunblocks makes your skin looks younger as you age, my dermatologist told me this. I use to model a little bit, and I use to use it. It really does keep your skin good.

No, we don't need any sun screen. If we did then Africans wouldn't have survived the harsh hot climate for hundreds of thousands of years, and Africa is hotter than England and the U.S.

Don't believe the hype...smh.

I'm lightskin and work in the sun EVERYDAY and have been for the last 12 years and although I burn, I NEVER had any skin problems whatsoever.

I'm about to go to my girl's home in Trinidad next week and I'll be all up on those beaches of Port of Spain ENJOYING the SUN and not baking like a White mofo, smelling like a tanned pork roast with onions and baby carrots...lol & smh.

BLACK PEOPLE DO NOT NEED SUNBLOCK UNLESS YOU'RE ASHAMED OF YOUR MELANIN ENRICHED SKIN THAT GOD BLESSED YOU WITH !!!

You really have a problem. This forum is for people to pose questions and get a reply. That is what i have done. Personally I didn't think that we (black people) needed to use it but I just wanted to find out what other people thought. Why all the anger?

Get a life and leave mine alone. If you don't like the thread don't read it - simple.

You feel me ?

White mofos love to involve us in their misfortunes...lol.

BE BLESSED WITH THAT MELANIN !!!

.... instead of smearing that slime on your BEAUTIFUL Black skin, trying to impress Massa.

I knew this one Black brotha I worked with about seven years ago who was brownskin (darker than me) who use to use sunblock, looking like a fool and smelling like a damn coconut. He use to hide it in the work truck until I found it. Whiteboys were joking him like a mofo, even me...lol & smh.
