This is horrifying.
Belo Group, a local medical-cosmetic giant, has recently been criticised for its men’s line’s advertising campaign, with social media netizens calling the campaign for the whitening products as insensitive, stupid, and insulting. On Twitter, it was described as social-climber-ish and biased against dark skin. The ads feature a man—now having fairer skin—as more successful and socially accepted because of his skin tone.
This is beyond colonial mentality—even after over a century of freedom from ruling White class Spain. Rather, this shallow attitude is here to stay. For as long as market capitalisation of the fair-skin preference instigated by consumerist, greedy advertisers is in the pipeline, the naturally tanned and brown-skinned Filipinos will always take the brunt of social stigma and bias. Sadly, we have a mass market so massively gullible to the notions of success, social acceptance and beauty anchored on narrow-mindedness.

wow that second one is literally telling you that if you’re lighter skinned you’ll get to marry a white girl
grapes are really weird once you take the skin off.
this also applies to humans
tumblr scares me
Just wait till you see how he thinks male reproduction works.
You SHOULD know this, because it is INCREDIBLY important and something that wasn’t acknowledged until very, VERY recently.
(I did a history project on this in Y9. We got to do something from the 20th century; everyone else did, like, Marilyn Monroe, and I read a translation of Moi, Pierre Seel, déporté homosexuel and then did my project on that. Cheerful, no, but important to know about, yes.)
In 1950, East Germany abolished Nazi amendments to Paragraph 175, whereas West Germany kept them and even had them confirmed by its Constitutional Court.
Well, that’s horrifying.
Oh my god
Homosexual concentration camp prisoners were not acknowledged as victims of Nazi persecution. Reparations and state pensions available to other groups were refused to gay men, who were still classified as criminals — the Nazi anti-gay law was not repealed until 1994, although both East and West Germany liberalized their criminallaws against adult homosexuality in the late 1960s.
“Gay Holocaust” survivors could be re-imprisoned for “repeat offences”, and were kept on the modern lists of “sex offenders”. Under the Allied Military Government of Germany, some homosexuals were forced to serve out their terms of imprisonment, regardless of the time spent in concentration camps. (X)
Also worth mentioning that homosexuals are still largely unacknowledged as victims of the Holocaust even within circles where they should know better. For example, in the Holocaust Museum in DC and Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, gay deaths are acknowledged only in passing and there is not a single picture of a “man of the pink triangle” - only of an empty ballroom that had once held a gay dance club. When Yad Vashem was completely redone in 2005, gay groups pressed for inclusion alongside other non-Jewish groups such as the disabled, Roma, etc., and numerous senior-level officials and the Rabbinate condemned such requests for inclusion, with some going so far as to suggest that the homosexuals were German criminals and therefore did not belong in the same category as the Jews who had done nothing wrong. When the memorial to gays in the Holocaust was unveiled in Berlin four years ago, senior members of Yad Vashem condemned it and, in particular, its proximity to the memorial for Jewish victims of the Shoah.
this planet shouldn’t be allowed to exist any longer
This is important. Of all the WWII history I learned in school, this was never once mentioned.
Oh my GOD.
And now my soul is bleeding.
Re-blogging again because when I was being taught the history of Nazi Germany, THIS WAS NEVER EVER EVER MENTIONED. NOT ONCE.
THIS WAS NEVER COVERED WHEN WE LEARNED ABOUT THE HOLOCAUST. WHAT!?
Seven states that ban atheists from holding public office.
