PLEASE READ THIS MESSAGE THOUROUGHLY, SHARE THIS AND SUPPORT IMMEDIATELY TO PROTECT YOURSELF AND THE ONES YOU LOVE FROM COMPANIES THAT ENDANGER THE HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF YOUR FAMILY AND COMMUNITY.***
Originating from the heart of communities of color in Boston is this firm warning and call to action for communities of color locally, nationally and beyond. The world has recently seen a rise in the production and sale of skin lightening products that endorse insecurity about skin color and cause skin illnesses sometimes as serious as skin cancer. Cosmeceutical companies are now targeting communities of color worldwide using psychologically damaging advertisements to promote their highly unregulated and dangerous skin bleaching products. These products and their companies are a threat to the esteem and physical health of all people of color (especially youth) and promise harm to all of our communities if immediate action is not taken against them. The protection of your community starts now, all thinking men and women of color are needed to protect our communities,. It is of critical importance that you join us and boycott cosmeceutical companies such as MITCHELL GROUP USA.
As this letter is being written, communities of color in Boston are defending ourselves against a skin lightening campaign by MITCHELL GROUP USA; a Florida based company whose slogan is “Bright is Beautiful”. We intend to defend our esteem and rid our communities of their deceptive, corrosive marketing & products and we remain aware that we are only one of many communities targeted by this company. For that reason we are sending a beacon out to all cities and communities of color in the US and beyond to rally resistance against MITCHELL GROUP USA, and similar companies. A threat to our humanity anywhere; is a threat to our humanity everywhere; and it is extremely important communities of color hold together to defend assaults against our well-being. Skin bleaching companies like MITCHELL GROUP continue to plague countries like Jamaica, Somalia, Ethiopia, Nigeria, and so shall they plague the United States if we do not challenge these companies now. We need you to link arms with this effort; BOYCOTT MITCHELL GROUP USA skin lightening products, sign this petition, share with your local and national networks and help to spread this vital community preservation effort throughout the US and beyond. Through unity we can stop worldwide skin bleaching trends, and parasitical companies who value insecurity as a means to profit, at the expense of your health.
