How Black Lives Matter Is Challenging India’s Obsession With Fair Skin
Skin-lightening brand Fair & Lovely, which earned more than $500 million in sales in India last year, announced on June 25 that it would be removing the word "fair" from its products.
For decades, Indian advertisers have propagated an association between skin fairness with career success, beauty, and social status. In 1975, Fair & Lovely was one of the first brands to monetize India's societal desire for light skin by turning it into a beauty product.
Now, this brand which has spent 45 years building itself into a household name with skin-whitening face creams, is trying to revamp its identity.

Updated: How Do Black People Spend Their Money? (The Racial Wealth Gap)
How black people spend their money has been a hotly debated topic not only on this site, but in our office, at social events and in beauty and barber shops across America. This article has been the most read and commented article for 9 years running. Once I learned that this was the most popular and discussed article on the website, I decided to do some research and share this information with others.
I predict that even after reading this article there a significant number of Black people who will NOT change their habits and work toward changing their situation. Over time, when things go unchallenged, they seem normal. After centuries of slavery, black people must realize that they need to work toward building generational wealth and learn to invest their money and establish Trust funds for their wealth that can be passed down to future generations.
