You know It’s crazy to me how African Americans use to get mocked for our melanin, body curves, nice voluptuous butt and fuller lips by other races. And now we see the next girl down the street and celebrities doing extreme measures to achieve the same looks we get made fun off.
People are tanning or sun-bathing so much just to get a darker skin tone & don’t get me started on those butt injections that ladies get, making their butt perky and round but have two skinny legs attached to it *sigh.*
Kylie Jenner for example, finally admits to having temporary fillers to achieve the fuller lips (Link attached above). Fans of hers have tried getting those plump lips by participating in the Kylie Jenner Challenge, which is where you suck in the air from a shot glass and sometimes has resulted in some damages (DO NOT TRY THIS).
Can you imagine all the diseases or body disporportions that can result from these temporary dangerous decisions of body manipulation.
Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with getting a little nip or tuck here and there, but I believe it should be for medical purposes only. Nothing seems natural anymore.
Like J. Cole would say: “Love Yourself or Nobody Will.”
We have to teach our young ones to love themselves, appreciate what God has created and how they shouldn’t be easily influenced by what they see on the media. Lord help us all!
