Yes, there are now women out there who are changing their race as casually as they change their purse! These are not your usual common cases of over tanning or wearing a blond weave. These ladies are causing much controversy and uproar amongst both black and white people.
Racial identification is not always external for everybody. Some people just consider themselves to be plain old human beings! Be gone those stupid boxes that make you check what race you are. It should be one box only that says “HUMAN”!
Anyway, let people be who they are! They have the right to do to their own bodies as they wish. We don’t exist in this world just to please other people!
FROM WHITE TO BLACK
Martina Adam aka Martina Big aka Malaika Kubwa
Martina Adam, I love this woman. I really just can’t get enough of her. She fascinates me, I just want to crawl inside her head and get lost in that empty space! Martina Adam, a flat-chested pale skinned German woman had always wanted to look like Pamela Anderson as a teenager. She then underwent 25 breast implant surgeries to proudly obtain the title of having “the biggest breasts in Europe”!
The former flight attendant, who changed her name to Martina Big, proudly struts around with these gigantic basketballs on her chest. That’s gotta take some serious balance. And still, plans to go bigger! She has accredited herself as a talented singer, model, and actress. God bless her heart (hopefully the doctors can find it if ever necessary). I like her video, I think it’s cute!
Martina soon becoming bored with the breast implants alone, decided she really needed to discover her true SOUL. She went seeking on the horizon for a more exotic look.
Anybody know what is hanging off her bikini bottom?
Martina Big, aka Malaika Kubwa, soon found what she was missing. Bye bye, Pamela Anderson look, that was so yesterday! She decided to become a black woman. Who knew you could even do that! She had three melatonin injections in her stomach last year to make her skin black. The injections apparently made her eyes turn a dark brown and her hair start growing out a “curly black” as she describes it.
She got a full on weave of African textured hair and plans to have surgery on her face to have her nose widened. In addition some butt implants, which I think is sensible as it might help her balance out her boobs.
Malakia’s favorite slogans “Bigger is better” and “Black is Beautiful”, seem to work for her. She finally managed to have the best of both in her “Big Big World”! You can read more about Ms. Kubwa at www.martina-big.com.
Martina gets a lot of hatred directed towards her, but she does not let it bring her down one bit! I say congratulations, Martina and keep on being you. I think you are a full on black woman now and a very strong one at that. You have to deal with resentment from both races and that can’t be an easy thing to do. STAY BEAUTIFUL!
FROM BLACK TO WHITE
Black women flock by the thousands towards that jar of skin bleach…
It is far easier to find extreme examples of black women whitening their skin than white women blackening theirs! No, supermodel Alek Wek did not bleach her naturally very dark skin and I’m glad she didn’t. I know I have raved on about Martina, but I admit I am a bit of a hypocrite when it comes to the other way around. I am still 100% in the belief that people can alter their appearance anyway they want to and should not receive slack or judgment about it.
We change our hair color, our eye color all the time – at least I do. Science and technology now have allowed us to dramatically change our skin color, so what is the big deal?
Now, I can play the devil’s advocate when it comes to this controversy. Skin bleaching in the US is almost like a major slap in the face towards everything that black people have suffered and fought for. They literally shed blood to provide a more liberal pathway for future generations of color. As a thank you, many of their predecessors are now trying to turn white which definitely does send out a strong message!
We do have strong role models like Alek Wek, Lupita Nyong’o, Nyakim Gatwech to name a few. They proudly strut around, with a self-confidence that cannot be bought in a bottle of bleach cream. They love to embrace their beautiful black skin in a world that still mostly rejects the very dark.
I love this look – just gorgeous!
Skin lightening is very subjective to me. Sometimes it turns out looking good, other times it turns out looking plain weird. Ashy, not really white more of a translucent shade of gray!
These results are just hideous. None of these women look like earthlings anymore. It’s like the Black version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, where the aliens messed up and forgot to bring the melatonin with them!
What shade is this? I’m not sure white people are even that white unless they have become corpses! Lil Kim, looked so cute in before picture before she went and turned herself into looking like a white tiger (minus the black stripes).
It reminds me of The Omega Man with Charlton Heston! A futuristic movie where he is trying to escape a deadly plague. Pam Grier stars as his love interest and co-star. This 1971 movie had to predict what was coming in the future!
Before the Plague!
After the plague!
It is not to easy to accumulate many examples of skin bleaching turning out well. It only seems to happen with wealthy celebrities who were already light skinned, and really didn’t need to go any lighter as they had beautiful golden toned skin already. At least they knew when to stop!
Stacey Dash and Iman differ in this group as these two were fairly dark, but they’re lightened brightened skin seems to have made them both look younger than their years.
Tyra, Beyonce, and Rhianna, although still stunning, didn’t need to mess around. They looked like faded versions of who they used to be. They were good role models for young medium skinned girls to look up to. Now there doesn’t seem to be any medium left in Hollywood. It’s either super dark or super light!
Dangers to be aware of before you bleach your skin
- Skin whiter than Nicole Kidman’s contrasting with African features. Looks weird.
- Thinning of skin
- Uneven Color Loss
- Blotchy appearance, Redness, and Intense Irritation
- Dark Grey Spots
- Skin Cancer,
- Increased Appetite and Weight Gain,
- Kidney Damage
- There is a difference between Bleaching and Lightening Creams. Both have dangers, however, the ones that say “lightning” are less severe. Avoid any with the ingredients hydroquinone (now banned in Europe) and Mercury (banned in the USA).
Safer Natural Methods
- Lemon juice (use carefully)
- Raw potato
- Aloe Vera
- Coconut Water
- Healthy Skin Regimen
Most importantly, do your homework if this is a route you are determined to go. Do not end up like this!
