Why are many Black women ashamed of being Black? They wear weaves to get hair that look like other races of women. Most Black women bleach their skin so they can get lighter skin. They want plastic surgery. Why are they ashamed of how they look?
- Most Black women wear weave simply to achieve another hair style, not because they desire "fine" hair
- Skin bleaching isn't prevalent in the Black community anymore, but I hear that it's quite common with East Indians today. . .
- White women get plastic surgery more than anyone else, sweetie. . .
I actually think the weave question is true. Nice hair = straight, soft and shiny. It's a result of white dominance around the planet for centuries, and constant banging from the media as a result. Look at Beyonce and her blonde hair xD.
And it's also true that in India the whiter you are, the prettier (also as a result of colonialism). A lot of dark-skinned Indian women LONG for whiter skin, and buy products for it and whatnot.
OK, not sure if you are just looking for attention w/ this question or not....How can you ask such a non inteligent question like that? Are you speaking from personal experience, do you know of black women even who feel this way? FYI... I love my the color of my skin, but if there is a flaw to it ( i.e. pimple mark, pigment discoloration) which VERY seldom happens =) ...then YES i will go out and purchase some ambi ( i.e. skin fade cream ) to treat my blemish area only. in no way does this make me not like my like my color. it is simply called self maintaining. An why is your question targeting black women? are you some sort of hater or something?
i'm not ashamed...i only got a weave once, it wasn't a full weave either, just tracks, and after that i just got my real hair braided and i'm fixing to dread it up...also i've never met anyone who has bleached their skin and i live in miami where everyone is superficial about looks so you must've just made that up
I'm not wearing a weave, I have worn extensions in the past (not now) but that doesn't mean I'm ashamed of being black and I don't lighten my skin. I have dark chocolate skin and I love it. Some black women are naturally lighter skin they are still black.
