“Keeping up with the BLACKS & BROWNS”

“Keeping up with the BLACKS & BROWNS”

With everything in life there are pros and cons, especially when it comes to the color of your skin. Things that were important yesterday may not be Headline News today. As we creep into 2018 it goes without saying that “melanin” is the new “IT” thing…but only on the surface. The latest trend, is the more “melanin” the better and that being brown is all the new rave, however; you have to ask yourself, would it still be sought after so aggressively if the stigma and negativity that came with it were mandatory as well? At one point in time having “melanin” was ranked even lower than the possession of a piece of furniture. It’s astonishing now that artificial coloring, spray tans, dangerous levels of UV rays while tanning, that can possibly lead to skin cancer is overlooked just to gain that glow. A glow that was once looked upon as dirty and worth less than nothing…is now what’s poppin’.

We are witnessing a turning point in history and BLACK is now the new BLACK.
