Until We Make Our Kids Believe Black Is Beautiful, Skin Bleaching Will Continue
Until we start telling our dark-skinned children they’re beautiful and perfect as they are – and believing it – dangerous skin bleaching is here to stay.
By Zongile Nhlapo

Unless parents affirm to their children that the skin they are born in is enough, and beautiful — and they really are convinced of this — we won’t see skin bleaching going away.

That was the collective view held by panellists that included skincare experts, authors and social commentators at a panel discussion about skin lightening in Sandton on Monday.

Earlier this year, we learnt with surprise and shock that some pregnant women in Ghana are taking pills — to lighten their babies’ skins while still in the womb.

“In my opinion every child I’ve ever seen is always a beautiful child. All these kids have gorgeous skin regardless of the tone,” said Danné Montague-King, the global founder of international paramedical skincare brand DMK.

It’s the messages children receive about their skin as they go through life that makes the difference, he pointed out.

“All (are) led to believe that if I’m to be anything in this society, I have to look white because lighter is better. That’s a thinking; it’s not a physical thing or a scientific thing, it’s a thought process,” he said.

It starts from a young age, not only in messages around “lightness and beauty” in media but in everyday references of every “pretty” thing likened to whiteness, pointed out panellist Noxolo Kahlana, who reflected her understanding of lightness where she grew up in Eastern Cape.

“You’d hear for example, if a brand new house is being opened, an elderly person would say this house is so beautiful it ‘smells like a white person’. Those messages are embedded in your subconscious and you want to do anything to be that better, because lighter is equated to something better,” said Kahlana.

And because it’s social and mental thing, it can be and has to be socially and mentally challenged, stressed Montague-King. Once that battle is won, it will likely be easier to conquer issues that stem from this view, including skin bleaching.

It all starts with affirming your kids

“I feel for myself personally, what would’ve worked better and helped me avoid a lot of pitfalls I fell into as a young lady, is being told I was beautiful from an early age, from the purity of love of a father figure (that I didn’t have),” said Kahlana.

She believes that even if people are presented with facts about the damage skin bleaching can cause, it won’t change anything unless they truly believe their skin is beautiful, enough and that their skintone is not a mistake.

The definition of beauty has to include skintone from a very young age, she said, and added that this can’t happen if parents themselves aren’t fully convinced of this fact.

My baby girl has dark skin. Everywhere we go people always say dark dindi elihle, I always question if dark represents ugly. I always tell her how beautiful she looks and pray she never doubts her beauty
Kahlana implored all parental figures to tell their children they are beautiful, and that the skin tone they have is not a mistake, neither does it need to be fixed. “Tell them they are beautiful and make them understand and build that confidence, it will go a long way in the choices they make when they are older,” she added.

“Whatever your natural tone is, is who you are… let’s have it be even and right and not spotty and irregular and let’s not artificially try to change it and endanger it,” said Montague-King.

Yesss!!! omg I wanna teach my lil chocolate babies that their dark skin is beautiful

No light skin vs dark skin foolishness baby you BLACK and you’re beautiful! #black #blackgirlmagic #beauty #blackgirlsrock
We need melanin education

“A lot of money has been made [from] ethnicity,” said Montague-King, and this seems to be more prevalent in Africa, compared to other continents.

As far back as the late Sixties, six out of 10 women in Africa reported using skin-lightening formulas. The products reportedly became the fourth most commonly used household product after soap, tea and tinned milk.

Reports also indicate that at least 75 percent of Nigerian women and at least 50 percent of Senegalese women have used skin-lightening products. In 2013 in South Africa, one in three women reportedly used skin lighteners.

The lack of regulation of many over-the-counter and home products in South Africa is the main challenge, acknowledged Montague-King. These products can contain significantly higher amounts of hydroquinone and mercury than those recommended by dermatologists, and the World Health Organisation has banned these two active ingredients of skin lighteners from being used in any unregulated skin products.

“Pluses can become minuses if the wrong chemistry is used at home or professionally, and skin cannot all be treated alike,” explained Montague-King.

“Melanin is one of the foundational defence mechanisms of our whole body; it’s there for a reason. It allows us to survive radiation. If we didn’t have melanin, we wouldn’t exist.”

“Every time you remove (or greatly disturb) melanin, you scream for hyper-pigmentation later,” he said.

The effects of skin bleaching are well documented, and can result in severe and irreparable damage to the skin in the short and long term, among other things.

“Things have to be real, they have to get results, they have to do something, and not just [be about] advertising and money,” said Montague-King.

If you have skin problems, don’t risk irreversible skin damage and other conditions by using an unregulated over-the-counter product that is not endorsed or recommended by any dermatologist. And if you have problems with your skintone, get around people and spaces that can help you evolve into full comfort with the skin you were born with.

About The Million Man March

A Glimpse of Heaven

The Million Man March, Oct. 16, 1995

Inspired and led by the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan, more than a million Black men gathered in Washington, D.C. to declare their right to justice to atone for their failure as men and to accept responsibility as the family head.

On that day, Monday, October 16, 1995 there was a sea of Black men, many who stood for 10 hours or more sharing, learning, listening, fasting, hugging, crying, laughing, and praying. The day produced a spirit of brotherhood, love, and unity like never before experienced among Black men in America. All creeds and classes were present: Christians, Muslims, Hebrews, Agnostics, nationalists, pan-Africanists, civil rights organizations, fraternal organizations, rich, poor, celebrities and people from nearly every organization, profession and walk of life were present. It was a day of atonement, reconciliation and responsibility.

“The Million Man March was one of the most historic organizing and mobilizing events in the history of Black people in the United States,” said Chicago-based Dr. Conrad Worrill, who was a main organizer of the March and the current president emeritus of the National United Black Front.

Congress shut down that day and President William Clinton was “out of town.” Mainstream media in American and media outlets from around the world were watching. The world did not see thieves, criminals and savages as usually portrayed through mainstream music, movies and other forms of media; on that day, the world saw a vastly different picture of the Black man in America. The world saw Black men demonstrating the willingness to shoulder the responsibility of improving themselves and the community. There was neither one fight nor one arrest that day. There was no smoking or drinking. The Washington Mall, where the March was held, was left as clean as it was found. Two of the best descriptions of the Million Man March include the word “miracle” and the phrase “a glimpse of heaven.”

Along with those who attended, many men, women and children spent the day at home watching the event on television and participating in the day of fasting and absence. Workers did not go to work that day, children did not go to school that day and no one engaged in sport or play.

During Min. Farrakhan’s message to the millions gathered in the mall and those watching on television around the world that day, he explained to the world the need for atonement and he laid out the eight steps of atonement. Thus, for the past 18 years, people gather, reflect and observe the Holy Day of Atonement.

At the conclusion of the March, the millions of men repeated a pledge given by Minister Farrakhan that focused on a personal commitment to be responsible and active in improving the Black community. The purpose was for Black men to take responsibility for their own actions and to help develop their own communities, and to atone for their lack of responsibility. Many of the men assembled took the pledge given that day seriously and have been actively involved in making their word bond ever since.

“The March changed my life and my perspective of life in so many ways. I (gained) a tremendous commitment to the betterment of my culture, and a heightened capacity to care and to love. I am now trying to live by the code of honor and the right conditions set forth in the pledge that I took,” said Glenn Towery, owner of Fairy God Brother Productions and Film Company, LLC that produced the DVD, Long Live the Spirit, a documentary about the Million Man March.

“I have formed my own company and am striving to create culturally enriching productions for African Americans and the world. Thank you Minister Farrakhan for being a conduit to God that allowed such a magnificent idea as the Million Man March to come through your person into fruition. Thank you Benjamin Chavis and all of the organizers, planners and conveners of the Million Man March.”

Immediately following the March, roughly 1.7 million Black men registered to vote and organizational memberships skyrocketed—the NAACP, churches and mosques reported huge increases and the National Association of Black Social Workers reported a flood of 13,000 applications to adopt Black children.

The spirit of the March continues to this day.

“Since the Million Man March, October has become a special month for me,” said Dr. Ayo Maat, Organizer in Green and Disability Issues. “During the first march, I kept my children out of school and they stayed up all night and watched the event the entire day without complaint or fatigue. Since then, I have been working to instill the spirit of atonement and uplift of the race.”

“The spirit, energy, and the ideas that were articulated on that day still resonate among the activists and organizers and thinkers and the masses of Black men who participated in 1995,” said Dr. Worrill. “Although it may not appear that the energy and spirit and impact of that day is still with us; it has manifested itself with us today as Black men are engaged in numerous projects inspired by the Million Man March that can be documented.”

In another public display of accountability, the Million Man March was the first ever public march to provide an independent Financial Audit of its operations.
