LET'S SAY NO TO THIS FAIRNESS OBSESSION
So here's something that we really need to talk about and shed light on, something that's very common and highly prevalent in our society. - The Fairness Obsession!
Why is our country so obsessed with the idea of being fair and white? This is a very serious issue that needs to be raised yet it's surprising to see how such less people are actually vocal about it. It's like we've accepted it as a part of our life and culture. No, we cannot! Wake up people! Do we still believe that we need to be fair/white to look good? How can our definition of beauty be so shallow?
In the age of democracy and free will, why are we still lagging behind in defining such basic concepts? There are so many celebrities, influencers, media houses and publications who have the power and authority to influence millions of minds but rather they choose to associate themselves with frivolous & morally-degrading products like fairness creams.
What are fairness creams anyway and why does anyone in the world need them? We are not saying don't use cosmetics or creams, of course you should but do not buy a product that tells you to change your skin color to be beautiful. It’s about time we ask ourselves these questions and act responsibly. A product that promises to make you look fair or white and thus turn you into something “lovely” or “handsome” is a total sham that’s quite frankly ripping off not just your money but also your morals.
You do not have to be fair or tanned, tall or skinny or perfect to be beautiful. You just have to be yourself, and be someone who's confident and comfortable in their own skin. Why are celebrities, influencers and media houses not promoting this school of thought yet? It is so sad to see that a concept as undignified as fairness creams still exists and sells with all its glory in our country.
We are the millennial generation who are globe-trotters, passion-seekers and change-makers and it is up to us to bring about a change of progress. We must duly accept the responsibility of educating and informing those less-privileged than us and also to say no to money-minting morally-degrading endorsements that are a slap in the face of human values & societal improvement. Only then can we hope for a better, brighter & a real fair future for all.
