By  |  37 Comments

It seems that white supremacy always rears it’s ugly head in nearly every walk of life in America.  For hundreds of years, lighter has always been seen as better, and people are often duped into believing that black women are only acceptable if they look like white women.

Instyle Magazine is the latest publication to get some major backlash after taking Kerry Washington, one of the most beautiful black women on TV and lightening her up.  Read the article below from and let us know if you think that this was a deliberate attempt by the magazine, or just an inadvertent effort to use photoshop to “enhance” her picture.

Read on:

Kerry Washington is so proud of her cover for the March Instyle magazine that she made it her new profile pic on Facebook.  Here’s how Washington looks on that cover:      And here’s how some of her fans looked  after seeing that magazine cover…      A picture is worth a thousand words, and the fans are using as many words as they can post to slam the photo-shopped hack job to alter Washington’s features giving her a slimmer nose, cheeks eyes and a smaller mouth.

    Oh come on you Black people. Why are you sooo outraged about Kerry Washington’s lighter skin tone on magazine? And you want to complain? I got yo say I finally saw “Scandal” for the 1st time FOR REAL and was wondering what all the hype was about every black woman rushing home home to see it. THEN, THEN, I see her kissing on this WHITE man to death. Uhhhh ! OMG SMH Hey, no wonder. She probably wishes she was white. I have no respect for her at all. And then she’s going to try and. Act /speak/represent Black woman’s status. PLEASE You can she’s so so happy with that touched up magazine picture. Hey isn’t she married to a Black Man? Or does she wish HE were WHITE, JUST SAYING…

        J D, Excellent point. In my mind, that is an expression of their insecurity. You cannot be beautiful and brown or Black. They have to make her white or light to make their viewers feel comfortable they think.
        Pale and colorless does not equate to beauty however. Remember, we put the hue in human.

    It appears that only her face has been lightened. Her neck and shoulders are her natural color. But let’s not be too quick to criticize. The magazine wants to sell its products and make lots of money from people the majority of whom are not Black! Even Black folk’s own magazines are closing up shop because not enough Black folk buy Black either!

    White folk LOVE white skin! They put their money where their mouths are. Kerry Washington is not as beautiful to Black folk on this cover, but she’s going to make a whole lot of money assimilating.

      Now that’s real talk.
      Why is nobody complaining about all these black men with white women on their arms in real life.

    Have any of you even stop to think that maybe miss washington ia probably thinking of doing plastic surgery and lightening her skin and just maybe that is how she would look after the process, so the picture is put out there, so when it happened it would go unnoticed. that was a trial run to see what the reaction would be. now with such outraged the process will be done gradually. if she used that picture on her facebook page because she like it, then that should tell all you black women who are outraged that she agrees and gave her consent to the picture. Don’t blame that on white supremacy. I did not see the headline saying that Kerry Washington was outraged, so why are you all wasting energy over that. We as a race of people we have to see our selves and our people as we truly are. There are many of our women who want to be lighter.They smile and say black is beautiful but will use fake bone straight hair, they will bleach their skin, they will use makeup to minimize their full lips and nose.

    Kerry should be more upset than we are since she no longer look like the beautiful Kerry, but some made over wanna be. Speak up woman and “stand you ground”. Refuse their idea of what beauty is, because God made you Kerry and these little gods are trying to remake you. They will and have already failed in trying to make you look like someone else. Kerry where are you?

    Instead of lightening her skin they should have made it appear that she had at least about l0 teeth LESS so she could fully close her mouth. Yuck.

    There was an old saying that is true today.

    If you are white you are all right
    If you are brown stick around
    If you are black stand back

    People are just as sick or maybe even more so today than they were 40 years ago. White media still try to determine who is pretty and who is not however they are losing ground fast because blacks of all color are showing that they are just as or more beautiful than any other race and they come in all beauriful colors. Deal with it media.
