  • Hey guys...I filmed this video about a week ago when the topic was super heavy on my heart. It's frustrating to have to even keep addressing this as a problem but I felt like a keep it real girl talk was needed. Let me know your thoughts but please keep it respectful. Thank you xx

    i’m paper white and i will probably never get a fake tan even thought i hate my skin color so much. it’s kinda scary how much skin bleaching or tanning harms you and i’m really not tryna hurt myself or my skin no matter what soooo

    kinda irrelevant but she mentioned it a lil so... i can’t DEAL with people who say they want their children to look a specific way (like they want it to be a specific color/specific color eyes) don’t have a god damn child if you’re really gonna judge it based off of how it looks

    I am a native woman, however my mother is white so I turned out very white presenting. It isn’t fair I don’t suffer from the racism my dark native brothers and sisters. For us light-complexion people, POC or not, use your privilege to beat down colorists. Don’t feel flattered when some dusty ass dude is complimenting light skinned women and putting down dark skinned sisters, because you are contributing to colorism by pretending it doesn’t exist

    I feel that representation is key. I’m happy it’s getting better, but it can definitely go so much farther.

    When I was little I never really realized or knew being dark skinned was beautiful or okay because I was teased for being tan at school. So I always avoided tanning to be lighter and wished for the day I could buy my own skin bleaching kit. Never stop speaking up for POC please! I wish I came across videos like this when I was 5

    I was so ready to disagree with you but your not saying anything wrong. And yes my skin complexion is very light and at times I wish I were a little deeper in complexion but I'm not and I'm going to have to live with that that's why my foundation is a couple shades darker

    I don’t know about any where else but skin whitening in China is not about race... i hate it when people with American standard go all high and mighty. Most Chinese people have never seen a person with a different skin tone then them. So colorism outside of China and the Chinese people aren’t their problem. This isn’t an attack against Jackie but I’ve seen a few comments about China and Asia that are so ignorant

    Not sure if thats youre sister but she is absolutely gorgeous, as are you!! My opinion is that black women have the most amazing bone structure and i find them so mesmerizing, all humans are beautiful, love is natural and hate is taught <3

    So late to the conversation, but I had to say that I've always wanted lighter skin because my family is lighter than me and we're Latin so my skin is not dark to begin with. But they were always the ones to make fun of me for my skin color. So ever since I buy lighter foundations to make my skin a little lighter

    I know this isn't on topic but, this was posted on The Joseph's birthday. Also I believe the fact that people are (sometimes without knowing) bleaching their already beautiful skin is horrible not only for them but for the company selling the product to do.

    I am not a person of color, but what people will say about dark skinned people makes me so mad. Why are you jugding someone because of their skin color. You shouldn't judge someone on their outwards appearance, but their personality and how they are as a person.

    Ain’t nobody in this world going to make me feel like my skin needs to be lighter. I’m so proud to be Black. Even though the world says we don’t do anything, we are the best innovators. Also, if you started a makeup line I would definitely buy from it. And the other girl is so pretty too btw!

    You was spitting FAX on this video girl! I was tearing up just hearing you talk about this topic and even though I’m not black (I’m Latina) I still appreciate the hell out of you and the difference you’re making for me, for the dark skinned and in general for anyone who doesn’t feel like they’re beautiful or worthy enough because of the color of their skin. The truth is that they are so fucking beautiful. Keep doing your thing Jackie!

    Really wanna lighten up a few shades this year? Move to Seattle for a year! We barely get any sun! I’m serious lol. But seriously I care more about having blemish free, glowing, healthy, natural skin over skin colors. Very pale n Super dark and everything in between is beautiful, cuz god gave us it. 🤗

    When you sale bronzer and tanners to white women no one complains when you sale whitening products to dark skinned people it's a disrespect, if they don't want it don't buy it simple

  • Sofia Rajab-Leteipan

    Thank you for your courage to talk about this. 'Black is Beautiful' by Chronixx would be a wonderful score for this video...'They never told us, that black is beautiful....'

    No one ever talks about self tanners being discriminatory against fair people, so why should skin bleaching be any different? Smh 🤦🏻‍♀️

    Your honesty is so refreshing! There is so much pressure on women specifically in the Indian community where I live, I think its so important to show dark skin girls of any race that we are ALL beautiful. Also, you are hilarious , go Jackie! Jackie!Jackie!Jackie!Jackie! Jackie!Jackie!
