Black girl, white skin

 Dear fab lady,

This is a letter from me to you, with all my love:

It has continually surprised me how I see people (men and women) with parched skins; darker knuckles and knees, black parches on the sides of their faces, etc
This is clearly a sign that unless the person has some skin defects, he/she is “bleaching”
Some call it “toning”, “enhancing”, “lightening” etc. The truth however is that it is “bleaching”—meaning--to whiten by exposure to sunlight or by a chemical process.
