The 'Yellow bone syndrome' - A skin deep issue

Written by Super User.

Discrimination based on skin color, or colourism, is a form of prejudice or discrimination in which human beings are treated differently based on the social meanings attached to skin color.

Throughout the numerous pigmentations across the world, the lightest-skinned peoples have the highest social status, followed by the brown-skinned, and finally the black-skinned who are at the bottom of the social hierarchy.

This form of prejudice often results in reduced opportunities for those who are discriminated against on the basis of skin color. In South Africa, the apartheid era emphasized the issue of colour. Blacks were made to feel inferior and denied their birth rights simply because they were the wrong shade/complexion.

The yellow bone phenomenon stems from a black person with a very light skin complexion, the context vary from people who fall in this category would include mixed race or being light-skinned genetically. Black people
come in many different shades.

Yellow fever can be clinically defined as the attraction to beautiful (and sometimes not so beautiful) light skinned ladies. Dark skinned ladies have pressure to keep up with the societal need to fit and therefore, many would go to risky and life threatening measures to lighten their skin just to have the 'right' complexion...

It is sad to see people who are not comfortable in their own skins nor proud of their heritage. We are who God made us through our DNA and genetics.

Woah! I'm really digging the template/theme of
this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's challenging to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appearance.
I must say you've done a very good job with this.
In addition, the blog loads super fast for me on Internet explorer.
Superb Blog!

When I look at your website in Ie, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some
overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
