I came here just to put a dislike on this video

I recently tried this skin whitening guide “fetching kinkin site” (Google it) half-hoping that it would work since I needed to see my family for the holidays and I wanted to look much better. The outcomes were impressive. In just two days, my skin appeared more youthful than it did for the past 10 years..

So when white guys go to a tanning salon, are they trying to promote "black supremacy"??

So are we just going to forget what the Asian lady about why skin whitening is popular in Asia?

What we finna do: Encourage people to do whatever the fuck they want (just wear spf everyday pls). Tan, whiten, lighten, whatever, as long as you're happy with your skin. And not let BuzzFeeed shove SJW bullshit up our throats and telling us using whitening products are wrong. What we not finna do: eat up their bullshit and boycott companies that make whitening/lightening products. ALSO do boycott companies that market whiteness/fairness as less of a preference thing and more like something that dictates your course of life (getting a job, finding a partner, being loved,...)
IAmJustJack (17 days ago)
I think white skin looks good on me. It's a preference thing. Let us live?

I'm 100% Filipino and I can attest we like pale skin because it is beautiful and it's not about being racist. Also for me subjectively I have used them in the past because it is sunny there and the more your exposed face is exposed to the sun you get sun spots therefore I would want to even my skin ever since!!! Please don't bring other people's culture to correct BUZZFEED, just STOP. There's a reason why the world is big and every culture is unique so please BuzzFeed don't even start caring about other cultures and make it all about racism.

Ive lived all over Asia for the past 6 years and have asked many Asian friends at first. It is a cultural thing, poor people are in the sun more and rich people arent. Buzzfeed SUCKS, try do a little research a little bit. You bring the left down all the time

What these comments miss is that intermalized colorism is indeed a reason (among many) for skin whitening. I know it is on my case at least. Asians from non colonized countries have their own, different reasons, but I and many other people have ours too, however racist or stupid they ultimately are.

So when white people want to be darker/tanned it is not racist, but if others want to have lighter skin it is? What else can we turn into a race issue?

I have never believed that my skin can still become lighter. After trying out this skin whitening guidebook “fetching kinkin site” (Google it), the melasma on my forehead disappeared! This guidebook flawlessly offered a mixture of ideas that helped enhance my dark skin tone. It helped my skin to see a whole new light!.

So if I take a suntan to dark in my skin what does say ?In Asia they did that because culturally farmers stayed out in the sun while businessman stayed inside. They never seen white or black people or most of them any ways. Are you skin Breitner to fix up my complexion .

Does this woman realize how crazy she sounds. She claims that companies are using 'coded language' to reinforce racial bias in skin tone. Does she think that there is a secret racist code we teach to all racists across the world? Or that makeup companies have discovered magic words to make women hate their skin and want to look European? Someone get this bitch a tin foil hat. She either believes in magic or a world wide racist cult that talks in secret code.

Buzzfeed at it again with distorting facts to throw out the word "racism" again. If they wanted to have a serious discussion about people being mistreated for having darker skin in other countries they could have. But they completely missed the point again.

This is one of the dumbest videos i have ever seen. This woman is saying whitening makeup is racist while at the same time saying being white... Is racist. Guess its ok to be prejudice to white ppl, but nobody else. Getting real fucking tired of this shit.
Matilda Xo (8 months ago)
It’s a personal choice. You could say that it’s “black supremacy” if you want to use a tanning lotion. Also stop blaming white people for this. It’s not our fault. They chose to make their skin lighter because they want to. Having paler skin in Asia has always been desirable because it was part of a class system. Just like how in the USA and UK like to be more tan so they can look more summery and exotic or for whatever reason they want darker skin. Like I said earlier it’s a personal choice.

As a fair skin Mexican I have to say that you are throwing shade at light skinned people like there is no tomorrow. White people are people to. White is a race like Black is a race. I know that you are just trying to encourage dark skinned people to stop using whiting products, but that message at the end was hella messed up.

SO THE FACT THAT IN EUROPE WE WANT TO GET TANNED, DOES IT MEAN THAT THIS IS BLACK SUPREMACY? OF COURSE NOT! SO GO BACK TO YOUR HOLE, YOU FEMALE BEAR. best wishes, another female among the many, that is fed up with your bullshit and your tendency to present feminism as misandry and hatred

I feel disgusted after watching this video. It showed how little research you guys did, how you paid 0 attention to what your guests were saying (ESPECIALLY the Asian one), how you decided to put the 'racist label' on something you know nothing about (p.s. Bronzer should be considered racist as well then, wouldn't you agree) and how you ignore the facts that don't fit to your false narrative. DISGUSTING! At the end of the day, BuzzFeed, you are the racist one - and no "white supremacy" bullshit can justify you poisoning the mind of the watchers.

We (asian, especially south east) use brightening/whitening product because the sun damaged our skin, so it isnt because we want to be white ppl -_- ! Because we want to cure the damage of the sun from our skin

I think it's funny that she completely disregarded the valid, cultural and historical reasons why people might use skin whitening products as "racist" even though it has absolutely nothing to do with white people.

Do you guys know a thing called "sunblock"? You know, that things whites use to stop them from being dark? THAT IS SO RACIST ACCORDING TO YOU
Curtis Parsons (1 year ago)
They do realize that in America a lot of white women go to tanning salons or just lay outside to get their skin darker which to most people would be appealing and would be given special privileges, so in the end it is all socioeconomic not some white supremacy ideals of beauty. Sorry just thought I should throw that out there.

White consumers get triggered because is not that they're being the object of racism, but they're afraid to be called racist. Because yes, sadly still on 2018, if your skin is fair your chances to do better in life are bigger in a lot of countries. Like within my country (Mexico) there is a lot or racism and we are all brown mixed race, brown people is racist with native indigenous people and looove foreigners. Is really sad. The more caucasian you look, the better. It fuckin sucks.
