More than Half of World’s Nonwhite Females use Skin Lighteners, WHO Says

A recent crackdown by the Rwandan government on the sale of skin lightening creams has highlighted the intense desire of nonwhites to look like whites—and the fact that more than half of the world’s nonwhite females use such lotions, even if many claim to be “proud to be black.”

The Rwandan government crackdown—as revealed in recent media reports—has seen officials deployed across that country to enforce a total ban on skin lightening and bleaching products.

Rwandan President Paul Kagame sparked discussions on the need to ban the sale of skin “whiteners” on social media in November last year, when, in response to a post from a woman calling for the government to crack down on skin bleaching, Kagame said on Twitter that bleaching creams are unhealthy, and he called on the country’s ministry of health and police to rein “this in very quickly.”

Government officials and police are now patrolling markets in the capital, Kigali, and in provinces across the central African nation, seizing skin-lightening and bleaching products from vendors, media reports said.

Rwandan police said they seized more than 5,000 banned bleaching products, including lotions, oils, soaps and sprays, from beauty shops across the country last month, according to local media, New Times.

Commissioner of Police John Bosco Kabera told the New Times that that the “illegal products were seized from beauty shops in Kigali, and Eastern, Northern and Western provinces where the operations have been conducted so far.”

Among the products taken off shelves included products named “Maxi-White,” “Skin White,” “Fair Light,” “Secret White,” and “Diamond White.”

Ghana implemented a ban on skin lightening creams in 2017, following Ivory Coast’s ban in 2015.

Despite such moves, the global market for skin-lighteners is projected to reach $31.2 billion by 2024, up from $17.9 billion in 2017, especially in Asia, the Middle East and Africa, according to a report by the market research group Global Industry Analysts.

A World Health Organization information piece on skin lightening creams reveals that mercury is a common ingredient in skin lightening soaps and creams which “are commonly used in certain African and Asian nations.

“They are also used among dark-skinned populations in Europe and North America.”

The preparation works through the  Mercury salts inhibiting the formation of melanin, resulting in a lighter skin tone.

The WHO claimed that on average, over 50 percent of females in Africa “are reported to use skin lightening products on a regular basis,” and that “nearly 40% of women surveyed in China (Province of Taiwan and Hong Kong Special Administrative Region), Malaysia, the Philippines and the Republic of Korea reported using skin lighteners.”

In India, the WHO report added, “61% of the dermatological market consists of skin lightening products.”

It is clear therefore, that a large number—likely the majority—of nonwhite females around the globe are prepared to seriously damage their health in an attempt to look as white as possible.

This, like the obsession with hair straighteners, provides a psychological insight into the question of race and how nonwhites actually perceive white people—no matter what they might say in public or how “Wakanda” they claim to be.

It also makes a mockery of the “cultural appropriation” nonsense sprouted by so many nonwhites, particularly when it is understood that almost everything nonwhites have was invented by white people in the first place.

  1. Wow! Astonishing report by TNO. It seems even African footballers are also using skin lighteners, as shown by a photo of one without his shirt, showing his entire torso very pale compared to his very dark face & neck. Skin lighteners, hair straighteners & hair bleach, all being used by Third World ethnic groups to look more like the Europeans they despise and want to genocide out of existence. They really do plan a “race replacement”.

    But there is one absolute genetic marker of a non-European that they cannot hide, and it is not skin colour. It is hair colour: No member of the European (=”white”) Ethnic Group can have BLACK HAIR. They can have very dark brown hair that looks black, but not the true black hair that marks all three other World Ethnic Groups: Orientals, Africans & Indian Subcontinentals. Since Europeans now comprise only 7% of the people on the planet, 93% of all humans now have BLACK HAIR.

    That was one of the reasons the Globalist Subversives pushed the “Goth” fashion style on young people, encouraging European kids to dye their hair black, wear depressing black clothes, and mutilate their faces and bodies with tattoos & piercings.

  2. Great points in this article. Skin bleaching, hair straightening, etc. by non-Whites is the height of hypocrisy and self-hatred. If they really believed black was beautiful, they wouldn’t be doing it at all. The truth is that the standard of beauty throughout the ages has always been White men and women, from the sculptures of Greek gods to paintings of the Renaissance. Everyone knows Whites are the most beautiful (fairest of them all) people on earth, and non-Whites all know this subconsciously, which is what drives behaviors like skin whitening and hair straightening. Sad for a people who claim to be so proud. Proud of what? Having to steal other people’s history because you have none and wanting to look like someone else? Black is beautiful…just don’t be toooooo black. What’s most amazing is they don’t even see their hypocrisy.

    I also don’t think they realize that using bleach products on the skin strips its natural oils away and diminishes its ability to reproduce them.

  3. The way things are going in the UK, soon Kiwi black shoe polish will be an essential item in every white man’s daily toiletries, just so that he has even the ghost of a chance of landing a public sector job.
