STOP! Advertisements stimulating racism

This petition had 162 supporters

Often,many of us have been labelled "dark" and are quite familiar with the term "racism".How many times have you been called "black beauty" in a sarcastic tone by your friends or how often have you heard your relatives and friends suggesting you home remedies for a brighter skin tone?

Well,beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder and our media has miserably failed to understand this.Today,every other person coming across fairness cream advertisements have totally forgotten to appreciate and accept  themselves the way they are. Fairness cream advertisements act as a cherry on the top of the cake and give a boost to the term of racism in the name of beauty! It's an inhuman behavior to make one feel disgusted about oneself and lowering their self-esteem or passing rude comments on any skin tone.

I personally, being a dark complexion whole-heartedly love the skin tone i have been gifted with and i strongly believe everyone should love themselves the way they are.

The main purpose of this petition is to stop racism through any actions,verbal communications or even through the means of advertisements.To finally put a full stop to anything that encourages or promotes racism. Afterall,there should be no difference made on the basis of ones skin tone as in the end we are all one,humans!

Period! The moon looks even more beautiful with patches in it!
