Exotik i am not responded to you anymore. Are u the same weave wearing fool from the other thread who thinks all men dont liek nappy hair? Go take ur non self esteem having self to another thread.

All Africans look exotic. I am not saying anything else to you because you are ignorant.
Re: Nigerian Woman Are More Beautiful Then East Africans by BlackLibya: 4:27am On Nov 16, 2011
So you have not seen the beauty of South Eastern/South Western/Northern/Delta/etc Nigerian women threads at all? Huh Why should they think they are exotic? Okay and a majority of West Africans do like their features while unfortunately there are some that don't same in many places Undecided

because they are? Do you not know that the beauty of west african women was highly sought after in the medieval times? There were several places in Spain and Rome where black women were thought to be so noble. Despite their claims of superiority, the Arabs chose to stock their harems with black women.

It is known that west african women are beautiful, the portuguese and spanish even during slavery with their great hate of all things african were forced to admit the exceptional beauty of certain african nations as a whole.

Also, I see u missed it when I said,

If Ethiopians bleach in Ethiopia(and I have heard they do) I dont care, because in my country they dont bleach nor sell the cremes.



I live in the US, in a city with a huge Ethiopian population.  You're most definitely wrong . . .


Americans bleach sef.  What do you think Ambi is?

Very rare if an american bleaches, I have not ran into any that do. AA's look down on bleaching and bleachers. Even when I went into the beauty supply in my area and when i went to the bleaching cremes the korean lady stopped me and said "no this is just for the african woman."

Harems shocked being a fetish is not the highlight of most people's lives shocked
Black women are not exotic, which implies they are something out of the ordinary, they are beautiful just like all other women.

Im sry im watching this beautiful carribean woman cook on chopped right now.

Yes I do know about the tuccoloeur empire. They speak a variant of pulaar, which is distinct from the pular spoken in Futa Djallon. Kaa haal pulaar? I also know about the Serer(the indigenous senegalese) people and their kingdoms and religion, and I know about the wolof and the fact that they are an ethnogenerated group of people from the fallen Malian empires mixing with the Serer and other peoples.

I know quite a bit, the first president of senegal was a Serer, which is odd because he was also an asimileé and most Serers reject french culture.

I know about Sokoto, Benin, Nok, Yoruba confederacy. I know about the Zenaga who formed the first great Berber empire, and the Shuwa and Bagharra Arabs who combined with the Sao people to form Kanem and Bornu. I know about King Afonso and the Portuguese and Queen Nzinga of Angola. You may not believe it but I know much more about West African and Central African history than I do about East African, although I am aware of the Italian-Ethio wars, the Eritrean betrayal,  Tipu Tip, and the Mau Mau rebellions.

West Africa is the home of the most legendary African empires, they built the largest and most massive civilizations(outside of egypt/sudan), only to neglect them in recent history and have the ruins destroyed. Its annoying that most of the west africans i meet on the street dont know about the various nations that existed before colonialism.

Congrats, Wiki degree is in the mail grin
Which is not unique to West Africa, unfortunately the effects of colonialism in addition to many wars in Africa destroyed some of Africa's great works and not all of it is neglected undecided
Yes and this is true for many groups not just West Africans.

Dude that is such a lie bleaching is a problem in the African American community, which is why every Korean Hair supply store in black neighborhoods is filled to the brim with skin bleaching creams, or only saving grace is that unlike in developing nations the main ingredient in Skin lightening creams, hydroquinone cream, is limited to 2% which is not as harmful or as noticeable shocked Dude come off that mess bleaching is a problem among all people of African descent undecided

Dude I have gone to schools that are 98% black and I can promise you that no one bleached. Bleaching for african americans is generally limited to acne scars. The AA experience revolves around the idea that black is beautiful, black power, and complaining about the white man. Most people bleaching are from the Carribean, Africa, India, or Southeast Asia. I didnt even know bleaching existed until I walked in an African store. In school we are taught that ended in the 1920s

Crayola think what u want. Many men refer to the women of their race as exotic, if u dont like it, kick rocks.

Anyway, Tyra's show was extremely biased because it acted like bleaching was an epidemic in the AA community, when its a much more serious problem in the Indian/Asian community.

That's not what you said here, you wouldn't be as pathetic if you actually stuck to a point instead of shifting to suit your needs when caught in a lie grin

If its a problem, then at some level it is acceptable to do it you mean having others know you bleach is not acceptable.

Africans make up a small percentage of the population, and those bleaching creams have long been in the beauty supply stores before there was even a sizable African population, who were they selling it to then?

Its not acceptable. On the whole we dont do it, it's not a fad, and we dont call it "beauty creme". We dont write songs about it, nor do we have movies where it happens. In my area there are africans everywhere so i cant answer ur question. All I can say is that I went to a school and nobody did it. Like i said, the korean woman in the store said it was for african women.
Re: Nigerian Woman Are More Beautiful Then East Africans by lakal(m): 11:56pm On Nov 16, 2011
So AAs are all universally proud of their blackness and don't bleach?

Skin color issues are a problem across the diaspora.

from ur article

“I never read the labels,” Mrs. Ross said. Instead, she took her cues from friends, many of them, like her, from the West Indies. “Once somebody told me Fair & White was the one they were using, I’d go to the Korean store and ask for it,” she said.

Dr. Erin Gilbert, a chief resident in dermatology at the State University of New York Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, said that she or a colleague saw a case of severe side effects from skin-lightening creams at least once a week. Dr. Gilbert attributed the frequency, which she called surprising, to the fact that the hospital served an “amazingly international cross section of women of color.”

But many others seek to lighten their entire face or large swatches of their body, a[b] practice common in developing countries as disparate as Senegal, India and the Philippines[/b], where it is promoted as a way to elevate one’s social standing. A small percentage of men in such countries also use the creams.

A salesman at Blessing Beauty Supply, who would give only his first name, Monroe, said the secret to one best-selling cream, [size=20pt]L’Abidjanaise[/size], was that “it has steroids in it.” Asked why he sold prescription medications illegally, he declined to answer

What are you going on about lipsrsealed Yes Black women bleach, you can pretend that its not the case but long before Africans were coming to the US in large numbers, it was not yesterday they just started stocking the shelves.

There was a documentary on TLC with a young Black girl who bleaches, so yes there is media that shows that it is a problem.

You always have one BS anecdote story on standby don't you grin The Korean woman will single you out, and tell you that's for African women shocked grin

Man whatever, like I said in the US when a woman bleaches you won't know.
Fashion Fair, a black owned makeup line, one of their products is Vantex. What is Vantex? A bleaching cream. So obviously they were marketing this product to Africans in some parallel dimension according to you grin

This ad was in Jet/Ebony and judging by the hair it was probably 80's-90's when it ran:


Re: Nigerian Woman Are More Beautiful Then East Africans by anonymous6(f): 5:21pm On Nov 17, 2011
I don't want to intrude in this debate but skin bleaching is all over the diasporia(in the Caribbean, african american community and Black latina community) & it is happening in Africa & Asia; especially in India, Japan, some african countries especially French speaking african countries like Senegal. So this shouldn't be a debate but the difference between Black communities of many different cultures & Asian communities of many culture's(particularly Indians) is that there is resistance of bleaching in Black communities of all cultures but in Asian communities there is no really big resistance it is accepted, they see nothing wrong with it.

Also I must add that it has been mentioned that asians are the biggest consumers & number 1 buyers of Bleaching creams and etc in the world

HERE IS MY THREAD TALKING ABOUT THIS ISSUE: https://www.nairaland.com/nigeria/topic-804407.0.html

Thank you, its a problem for all people of African descent, Black women in America have access to creams that are not as dangerous as the ones Africans and West Indies people use. So they don't get the noticeable "fanta face, coca cola body" look tongue

Its not to knock on Black Americans, since I am one, but to pretend that the thousands of beauty stores stocked to the brim with these things are only for Africans and people from the Islands is a boldfaced lie. smiley
