...it seems that the world is conspiring in preaching that there is something wrong with Kenyan ladies' kinky hair and dark skin... Their leaflets are all about skin lightening, and they seem to be doing good business in Kenya. It just shocks me. It's not OK for a Caucasian to tell us to lighten our skin... I have never attempted to change my skin. I am natural. People in Europe and America love my dark skin. But here in Kenya, in my home country, some consider it not attractive.
When you flip through fashion magazines like Vogue and only see white models, then you get the feeling on what is happening to black models. It is not fair.
