Nowadays, many people get hatred from their own community. Something, which is not mentioned a lot when discussing racism.
For example: a dark skinned woman will get more hatred from her own people.
Even today, in Asian countries, there is a obsession with white skin.
There are lots of TV ads of skin whitening products.
It is funny how one one hand western countries are selling tanning products and Asian countries are selling skin whitening products.
It's like both East and West are fighting against nature.
East is becoming west and west is becoming east.
Even on the weddings, brides look paper white because of social expectations.
All my relatives who had dark skin looked paper white on their weddings because of social expectations. It made them look like dolls whereas in my eyes, they look perfect without makeup. They think the purpose of makeup is to look white.
Skin whitening treatments are done by Bollywood actresses also.
I love all these actresses. Before anyone calls me racist, I would like to remind them that these actresses were always trolled by their own people, who should have been proud of them. Priyanka is trolled the most by Indians since she became a Hollywood actress. The Indians are constantly making fun of her skin colour, dresses, met gala looks, her American accent, even her wedding dress and her "white" partner. They made so many memes on her gala dress.
When she attended the Koffee with Karan show, the comments were talking about her skin colour because in Asian countries, a woman is nothing more than a object. Whereas, if you read the comments under her American interviews, the focus is more on her personality.
This is how patriarchal societies in Asian countries treat successful women who represent their country. My motherland Pakistan is no better. They also trolled Mahira Khan when she worked in Bollywood and attended the Cannes festival.
