bleach1

Reggae artist Vybz Kartel has managed to spark a global debate about the prominence of skin bleaching in the Black and non-white communities.   He has also responded to criticism about his visibly lighter complexion by equating skin bleaching to a personal preference and nothing else.  His remarks and defense of skin bleaching have enraged many and have prompted other reggae artists to respond.

The latest response to Vybz Kartel and his skin bleaching comes from fellow reggae artist Mr. Vegas.  In his video “Black and Proud (Nah Bleach),” Mr. Vegas asserts his pride about being Black and provides some encouraging words about educating youths to be proud of their roots and heritage.

The issue of skin bleaching is a very complex and multi-faceted issue that warrants a more thorough analysis.  Please check out the next issue of Orijin Magazine for a more in-depth analysis of the issue.
