Skin Whitening…Self Hate or Beauty Tool

A short film on skin whitening in India and the effects of colonialism. Skin whitening is a deep issue for more than just Africans and Black/Brown Americans.

Do you desire to be a lighter shade of your beautiful brown or black complexion? If so, why? Do you feel that skin complexion gives someone a boost in society or holds them back? Share your thoughts on this topic. No opinion or thought is wrong…..

World Food..A Delicacy For Some

Now I am all for trying different foods from other cultures but this has totally ended my desire to buy ANY asian food. You might say that I am stereotyping all asian dishes. After seeing this video, and others where rat meat is cooked and disguised as chicken, I will now be preparing my own chicken friend rice. Of course made with chickens that aren’t feed animal byproducts, hormone and antibiotic free, and no alterations of ANY kind.

If this is a special delicacy for you, then EAT ON. I’ll politely pass.
