Hey Jezebel, Please Stop Thinking it's 'Racism'!

This isn’t going to be a long post, but I’ve had it up to HERE with Jezebel and their thinking that any form of skin lightening is “racist.”   They did it again on Tuesday with this post.   They don’t seem to “get” that in some cultures, light skin has been a beauty standard for centuries – a standard that existed long before the Europeans arrived.  I think Jezzies (or, at least the people who post) tend to forget that.  As many posters have asked, why don’t people blame racism with tanning?  Honestly, I think Jezebel writers should stop with the politically correct European colonist guilt, especially when they dismiss and forget anything people from other cultures say.
