You know what pisses me off about the stupid Belo ad and the new Block & White commercial? It’s actually a very personal thing. For most of my adolescent years, no matter what my parents and titas said about morena beauty, all the magazines I read, billboards I saw, “ang-puti-niya” comments I heard, TV shows I followed, they all said otherwise.
I may not be hung up with my skin color today. I’m sincerely proud of it. I love how it’s a part of my whole look and personality. But what does bother me is the number of young brown-skinned girls out there who will have to go through thinking their skin color is wrong or sub-standard before they start accepting themselves 100%. It was a crappy feeling fabricated by advertising, and I hope more people speak about the beauty of our skin. Let’s out-voice the stupid “whiter-is-better” mentality and just teach girls to love themselves, take care of their bodies, be confident, and respect one another.
