Oh, you showed your hand a post earlier
To which I say...I'm constantly amazed at some of the willful ignorance people chose to show. You're absolutely right. Ideas of good hair or the badness of black skin come directly from internalized racism. Good hair is hair that is most similar to "white hair" and light skin is better than dark because it's closer to white skin. Both value judgments come from a history where lighter skinned blacks were generally treated better on plantations, in society after slavery and where all things "white" were considered superior to all things black.
I don't why people are trying to deny the reality of this. It's really not even a big deal. Accept it and move on.
That isn't proof... thats just a guess conjured up to support your theory so you can keep on with the racism truck.
The desire of some Chinese people to have their skin whitened is rooted in a historical association with white skin as superior because wealthy Chinese (particularly women) stayed indoors without getting tans and poorer, less 'feminine' members of society were out on the fields. Similarly, the desire of some blacks to have lighter skin is rooted in the idea that white is better than black. It's impossible to get away from the origins of such ideas when discussing those ideas.
