She does to me

Obviously, YT girl's skin is more natural looking-lacks the grey overtones

But they have similarities--big African featuers/super pale skin
That's who she instantly reminded me of when I saw her photo

To hear BHM tell it this ain't so.
Only AA's have identity issues...


many chinese adopt/take on western names too. Ive had a chinese girl named Huiping say "call me Jennifer" and heard Huaiang asked to be referred to as "Harry", because its 'easier'

I dont know if the name thing is "self-hate". I just dont know...

....yes, there are very serious health risks, including a range of life-threatening dermatological issues..
plus, blood/skin infections...permanent loss of skin elasticity resulting in severe premature wrinkles....the list goes on

It's a shame b/c she was so pretty pre-"toning"

Why are Nigerians so much more obsessed with Western standards than other African countries?
Its not only Nigeria its all over Africa and any other country that have dark skinned people. Carribeans, cubans, brazillians, phillipineans, the list goes on...


...she said more than other African countries though
