    RE: RED GYAL OR DARKIES WHO SWEETA?????????

    I have to confess That i will recognize a light skin Trini girl before a dark skin one simply because my eyes aint that good so ill will most likely see brighter things before darker things. This have affected me with my lightskin,afro-centric girlfriend and getting watch sqrew face by them darky dem. It has nothing to do with them personally because it have much better looking dark skin girls than light skin, and better looking light skin girls than dark skin too. But it just simply come from my mistake of first recognizing lighter skin girls because i dont have great sight and i am mostlikely to recognize beauty on brighter things than darker if they were standing together in a crowd.


    But you should see dem Yardfouls does bleach dem skin to look white,
    Check this article from a Jamaican newspapers:
    Bleaching Their Way To Beauty
    By Merrick A Andrews

    Pretty Tamara Richards believes that white people have all the advantages in the world. She believes that white people get jobs easier, earns the highest salaries and attract handsome and wealthy men.

    But there’s one little problem: Tamara is just about four shades darker than the typical white woman and just barely graces the “browning” category among her black people.

    Her perception is that the fairer you are, the more likely one is to become successful socially, economically and romantically.

    The 18-year-old Jamaican has always wished she had a lighter colour. So to solve her “problem”, Tamara is using skin-lightening creams.

    “White people get the better things in life, yes,” she says. “You have a lot of advantages when you are white.”

    In this Caribbean island of 2.6 million people, health authorities say hundreds are skin bleaching and the problem is that many people misuse by overuse skin lightening creams, which are prescribed at low doses to correct uneven pigmentation.

    However, the products, many of them manufactured in North America and Europe, are sold over the counter throughout the island, the Caribbean and the world.

    Dr Neil Persadsingh, a leading Jamaican dermatologist and author of the book Acne in Black Women says some of these creams work by killing melanin, the substance that lends skin its pigmentation and protects the skin from the cancer-causing ultraviolet rays of the sun. All people have melanin in their skin; the more melanin present, the darker the skin.

    In addition, he says, the preparations contain large amounts of hydroquinone–a white crystalline de-pigmenting agent that is fatal in large concentrations. Victims will suffer from nausea, shortness of breath, convulsions and delirium. Damage to the skin–wrinkles, severe acne marks–may be irreversible after prolonged use.

    Sheena-Kay Morris, 16, who also lives in McIntyre Villa, a ‘ghetto’ or garrison community in the volatile capital Kingston, hasn’t used the creams for almost a year now.

    However, her complexion has gone unusually pitch black with bumps on her face and shoulders.

    Dr Persadsingh says some of the products contain steroid and hydroquinone, which are mutagenic. This means they can cause changes in the body that can lead to cancer. Many users, he notes, find their skin gradually becoming darker when they quit using the chemicals, and some develop a scaly layer on their skin. Few return to their original skin colour once they have used skin lighteners.

    “The prolonged and continued use of these creams will lead to a face looking like greater,” warns Dr Persadsingh.

    “When we are faced with this type of damage there is nothing that we can do except to advise the patient to live with their condition,” the dermatologist says.

    For Tamara, who also lives in McIntyre Villa, skin bleaching is just as popular as keeping afloat with a popular fashion trend.

    Like many youngsters her age, the older women influenced Tamara in her community. She got hooked last year when she bought a steroid cream named Movate at a wholesale store in downtown, Kingston.

    The results from bleaching her skin evoked mixed reactions from her male colleagues. “Some of the men say I look pretty and I should continue. Some will make fun at me, say you look like a monkey and call you ‘black-white’,” says Tamara.

    “It’s the ‘in’ thing. It makes you look cool and pretty, it takes out the black heads. It makes it smooth,” she says. “But it tones down your skin and makes it light and cool,” adds Tamara, a high school graduate who wants to pursue a career in computer technology.

    Tamara lives with her stepmother and father, who don’t seem to care about what she’s doing. “They don’t say anything,” she says.

    ‘Household’ bleaching
    If you happen to take a walk into any inner-city community on an early morning don’t be surprised to find several girls with powdery or painted-looking faces. They are bleaching.

    Apart from the traditional skin lightening creams, some Jamaicans use toothpaste, curry powder, milk powder, household bleach and cornmeal.

    These products are cheap and effectively cool, users say. “The toothpaste and the bleach lighten your complexion,” explains Tamara. “The curry powder brings out the beauty and the cornmeal and milk powder makes your face cool.”

    Dr Persadsingh says: “Jamaicans perceive that when a product burns it can clear the skin. That’s why they use toothpaste, curry and household bleach as a base for lightening the skin.”

    Why people bleach
    Health care professionals and social commentators in Jamaica view the trend with dismay, for example numerous reggae songs censure the practice, such as the early 1990’s hit “Dem a Bleach” by Nardo Ranks.

    Health officials say skin bleaching in Jamaica dates back over decades. Over the last five to ten years the practice has been increasing significantly, says Dr Clive Anderson, dermatologist and an executive member of the Jamaica Dermatologists Association.

    “There’s a large segment of our population who are convinced that being lighter in complexion is to their advantage, socially in terms of their relationships and economically in terms of getting ahead,” he said.

    Dr Persadsingh shares the same sentiments. He said some women don’t know why they are doing it. “Some girls feel that with a lighter complexion, their prospects in life would improve. Some are bleaching their faces and when they are asked why they have no answer.

    “I have been told that men are responsible for the girls bleaching their faces, as all men only want ‘browning’ (light skinned women) and do not like black girls. This is rather nonsense of course. Some people even claim that the girls are bleaching now because of slavery and that the white people are to be blamed. Again, what utter nonsense,” Dr Persadsingh scoffed.

    Media advertising worldwide greatly enhance the stereotypes that light skinned people are advantaged socially and romantically.

    In Jamaica, advertisements like these are not broadcast, printed of aired often, but the few depict light skinned women saying for example that “Vanishing Cream fades dark spots and freckles, lightens and brightens skin to a smooth radiant glow.”

    An article on the web site www.africana.com said: “One Kenyan TV ad features a young woman staring lovingly at her boyfriend in a college cafeteria. Another pretty woman with slightly lighter skin walks by, upon which the man jokingly asks the girlfriend how he can tell the woman that she is the “most beautiful girl I have ever seen.” Devastated, the young woman responds to a voiceover advising her to use “Fair and Lovely,” a skin cream promising “special fairness vitamins” and guaranteed to lighten her complexion in just six weeks. The young woman uses the cream and, sure enough, keeps her man.”

    Health authorities
    The Ministry of Health (MOH) in Jamaica has released a list of banned beauty products that have been in circulation for many years. A MOH spokesperson says that it’s hard to clamp down on the culprits, because they continue to change the name of the products and distribute to street vendors.

    The authorities have so far seized creams such as Movate, Reggae Lemon Gel, Top Gel Plus, Omic Gel Plus, Lemonvate Cream, Tropesone Gel, Tropesone Gel, Gel Plus, Neoprosone and Pro-Beta-Zone. Some of these products cost as much as US$9.

    “The Association of Dermatologists has no empirical data on the problem, but it is certainly hundreds and thousands of people who are doing this,” says dermatologist Dr Anderson.

    He adds: “This is something we (dermatologists) are seeing daily. I would say a good ten to 15 per cent of the patients we have been seeing have been doing this.”

    The MHO has appealed to citizens to stop misusing these drugs as they were putting themselves at serious risk and overburdening the health system as they sought to treat the damage done to their skin by the creams.

    However, this psychology for social acceptance, more opportunities, and improved self-image, is already epidemic. From as young as ten to as old as 40, many are still using it.

    “Why? It’s your face, it’s your body, and you can do anything with it. I will stop bleaching when I want to stop. I know what I am doing,” says 36-year-old Trisha Smith, a veteran skin bleacher, whose face is distinctively clearer than the rest of her body.

    Merrick A. Andrews is a Jamaican journalist currently based in Montserrat at The Montserrat Reporter as a Sub Editor/Reporter. He is a former sports reporter, lifestyle reporter and Youth Link magazine coordinator at the daily Gleaner newspaper in Jamaica. He is the chief coordinator of the Caribbean Media Network, www.caribbean-media.net, a communications point for Caribbean journalists.

    RE: RED GYAL OR DARKIES WHO SWEETA?????????

    Hey Islandmix, i am back, well i must say that the reason most people will notice first a light skin person over a black person is because according to me the lighter a person is, the faster one's eyes will drop on him/her. but that doesn't mean that this person is more beautiful than a darker one who doesn't get any regonition at all. if a dark person has an ugly nose, it will be the fisrt thing that people will notice, but if a light skin person has an ugly nose, it will take more time to be detected. That happen to me this summer, my cousin in law has a new girlfriend from Toronto and she looks nice and everything, but when i looked at her more closely i was so chocked to see her teeth.... HORRIBLE!!! I am pretty suer if these teeth were on dark skin girl everybody would noticed them a mile away. but it seems like the light skin and mix people attack sympathy, people would say she/he has ugly teeth, but she has real nice hair.For a dark skin person it will only be: she/hi is ugly.
