I Blame The Black Man For Why Black Women Bleach Their Skin

When I was young, growing up in Africa in a country where lighter skinned women are the epitome of beauty, I once asked a woman whom I looked up to why women with light skin were considered more beautiful than women with dark skin. Her answer was straightforward, “Because men like women with lighter skin if you are dark, men won’t find you attractive”. I remember looking at this woman confused because that ...

Dear Single Girl, I don’t know you personally, yet, but there are a few things I want to tell you with the hope that I will get to know you some day.

That’s My Opinion: With people like us, Ghana needs no Enemies

So far, we have proven beyond reasonable doubt that we can 'do bad' by ourselves. It is however, my hope that, there is a generation coming up that will see through what is going on, discard the manual we are using to cause the mess and come up with a workable manual that is solution oriented.
