Easy to understand for the ladies. Aside from Michael Jackson, have there been many dark-hued men who've tried to do a lot of skin-lightening? I remember that Sailer said that Sammy Sosa did it ...Dan recently pointed out that it is not an exclusively female thing. In addition to the most notorious example, Michael Jackson, the aforementioned Sosa, and soccer player Neymar (also via Steve), Al Sharpton, David Dinkins, James Earl Jones, and Vybz Kartel (a real stand up guy!) appear to be bathing in alabaster.
Are there more instances of high-profile black men possibly aspiring to put on permanent whiteface? I'd like to collect them, with illustrations, here:
|Neymar Silva Santos|
|James Earl Jones|
Excerpting from a BBC article, Dan writes:
"The World Health Organization has reported that Nigerians are the highest users of such products: 77% of Nigerian women use the products on a regular basis. They are followed by Togo with 59%; South Africa with 35%; and Mali at 25%."
Its similarly huge in Asia and India.
If it is not a major thing in America, then America would be the exception.
