People tan to get darker or "blacker" - to look better in their eyes because they think people will find them more attractive(might even help them in a job interview).
do tanning whites feel a lower self-esteem than their non-tanning white friends?
and skin cancer is a serious problem.
same arguement both ways.
If tanning or bleaching or straigthening or curling is not for you or me-----lets not take away what may feel right to someone else.
You question my intelligence yet you are the one accepeting a double standard-------you accept whites making changes(and even say it is healthy(wrong)), but you won't allow blacks the same right. So now you must choose------is it right or wrong for both groups? or up to each individual to decide?
It is the acceptance of double standards which has held women back for so long.
