Why Are People After Fair Skin
Cuckoo Devaki always stands out in a crowd because of the colour of her skin. It doesn’t bother her at all. She is optimistic and laughs heartily. She is a connoisseur of music and dance. Recently, Cuckoo, who gracefully rose to the top through modelling and her dance performances, was ridiculed by an acquaintance of mine. He said, "Why does she laugh like this? What does she have to show? Is she showing off her evil-looking black body? She is actually ridiculing herself." He seems to believe that only fair-skinned women are beautiful and brown or black-skinned women are not even fit to live.
On the other hand, Cuckoo is silently breaking the concept of beauty as perceived by our society. She is completely free from the biased thought processes of society. She remains cool when communicating with you. She looks straight into your eyes and maintains her poise. This is possible only because she has realized that the concepts of beauty and ugliness are creations of a person’s mind.
Why do we go after whitening creams?
Colour discrimination is an indication of the existence of an unjust and unequal socio-economic situation. Furthermore, such discrimination is sustained by language and cultural symbols. The concepts like "a crow can never become a crane by having a bath," "from darkness to brightness," "black forces," "may the light of knowledge remove the darkness of ignorance," etc., encourage people to look at dark-skinned people as untouchables.
Besides, people are discriminated against based on their physical characteristics. Historically, efforts have even been made to establish that whites and blacks are genetically different. Skin colour variations have also been used as a tool to justify inequality in society. A vast majority of black people run after whitening creams as they live in a society that believes white people are more sexually attractive.
Skin colour variations are unique to the features of human beings. Colour differences apply not only to the skin but also to the hair and eyes. The colour differences can be attributed to variations in the production of melanin in the skin. The number of melanosomes produced by each melanocyte is controlled by several pairs of genes that work together. Genetics is responsible for this. The UV rays in sunlight can stimulate melanocytes to produce melanosomes. That’s why the body parts that are exposed to sunlight become darker.
Human diversity can be attributed to differences in biological and cultural heritage. Biological differences, such as skin color or height, cannot be altered. The physical attributes of a person are decided even before he is born. Differences in features between people in one society are noticed by those in the same society. The external features of people belonging to another society may be different in terms of skin colour, hair texture, the shape of the nose, and the shape and size of the face and lips. Evolution is responsible for the differences in skin colour such as white, black, brown, and red. People migrating from one country to another, isolated societies where independent evolutions take place, genetic mutations, and genetic variations have all contributed to the development of a variety of human body features.
Do people have a primary colour today?
The natural colour of the skin of the human race is black. The natural colour of the skin of the human race is black. The skin color of people living in colder regions changed subsequently. This is due to natural selection. The migration and mixing of human races continued even after the evolution of colours. The mixed hues of skin colour that we see today are the result of the intermingling of races. As a result, there is no primary colour for the human race. The acquired skin colour helps them live in the environment they are in currently.
Our genes are responsible for the physical features we have inherited, and it happens before our birth. However, social and cultural factors are responsible for colour discrimination in societies. It comes from the information and knowledge we assimilate through sight, hearing, and experience after birth. We all learn about the social divide and hatred from people around us. Our memories, thoughts, and beliefs are etched with hatred for the color black. It flows through the billions of neurons in our body.
We have an uncivilized mind
As a race, we are wired to help each other and live in small groups. It is natural for humans to identify and alienate those who are different. That’s why people who speak different languages, wear different dresses and live in different countries often fight with each other. Despite the diversity, we are all living together today only because of the development of extensive civil social codes. Discrimination against the black community is the mindset of an uncivilized society. The inner feelings of the human race have not yet been modernized.
