Do you think that looking like a clown with a blonde wig and blue contact lenses is a fashion statement or a sign of self-hatred where deep in your psyche you wish you were white.  Maybe it's a need for attention, such as when you dress in a very revealing manner, for shock value ( or because you don't think you can turn heads without shock value).

Well, on some people, it make look nice, but when you have thick african features... it looks ridiculous to me.   Ya look like a damned CLOWN.  It's an embarrassment.   There is a difference between risky fashion and self hate.   When you wear your make up too damned ashy,  you wear blue contacts and blonde hair that clashes with your skin tone, your thick, wide African features scream for color and texture, yet you choose SILKY and SHINY.

No matter how hard you wish, no matter how much you paint over your beautiful dark skin and cover your kinky hair with silky, shiny european textures... no matter how many pennies you throw into the wishing well,  THIS WILL NEVER HAPPEN

People will look at you and turn their head because you look more like a RODEO CLOWN

but if that person is happy with blonde hair and blue eyes...why are you so upset about it? i mean ppl experiment with different looks and thangs all the time lol. if its not you lookin ashy with blue eyes..its all good. i dont know maybe cause my hair has been all the colors of the rainbow(i was and sometimes still am such a rocker)...i feel like everybody need to express themselves.

i just dont think its always self hate...unless they come out and say it. lol its just so weird, i never see this in real life...just only read about it on this site..is this someone you know personally or just random ppl in the street? and why you look so angry in that pic, girl smile Big smile

I wear turquoise contacts. Cause I'm legit blind. So I like experimenting with colors. I've had green and hazel too.

I want blonde hair on my head. Because I just retired some crazy orange and pink and now I'm missing my blonde. But I don't want platinum. I want a pretty honey blonde



*scraping pennies for my next LW*

There is someone I had in mind when I vented, however it's not directed at any recent poster.  " It would be foolish of me to strong assumptions  based off of one photo."   (clears throat).    There is a list of things that I have observed over time that makes me sure that some people who do this actually wish they were white and are ashamed of their african qualities.     It's actually quite disgusting and if I listed all the evidence then you would see where I was coming from.   

I understand a youngsters need for attention.  I understand those who want to be like Nicki  ( in my era, it was lil Kim and Punk),  with all the crazy hair and contact lenses.  It's fun!  I get it.   Obviously it's not a natural look.  I understand Emo and the Vampire movement.... I get all of that.  Some of it looks great!   But, when you are 30 something... maybe one should at least consider basic rules of color matching or risk looking like an old fool.  Furthermore, why would you intentionally subtract from your beauty and make yourself appear less attractive instead of grabbing all the sexy points you can get. 

If you think that self-hatred based on white supremacy is a figment of my imagination, think again.

This is the KIR section where you speak your mind but remain respectful, right?   REAL FRIENDS DO NOT ALLOW FRIENDS TO LOOK LIKE RODEO CLOWNS.

I don't see anything wrong with people I guess we are refering to African American woman wearing blonde hair, colored contacts or what ever. I have worn a blonde combo before and while I have never worn blue contacts, I have worn hazel, green, gray and dare I saw violet contacts (lol what was I thinking with those violet eyes LOL). I think people like experimenting with different colors. I have never personlly wished I were a different racethen my own and I can't imagine the other people I see out there in world think that same way. Now I know the OP was referring to woman, but what about men that like to wear contacts and have blonde hair and stuff? And I am not just referring to homosexual men but your football love straight dude.

not sure if its self hatred, some folks just make very bad beauty and fashion decisions. Everything doesn't look good on everybody and alot of women (both white and black) should realize that.

I believe people can wear what they want but there is something about blue eyes that just gives me the creeps. It can be a white person or black but that color just looks so strange and spooky.
