    Sammy Sosa says skin rejuvenation process reason his skin appears lighter




    Hmm, I have been plagued by acne off and on for decades. I have been to dermatologists and aestheticians up and down the eastern seaboard. NEVER has any process be it dermabrasion, chemical peels, creams, masks, or facials lightened my skin the way his is now. THANK GOD! I would cry if I woke up looking like that. :yikes:

    As for the possibility of it being vitiligo, induced by steroid use, I am at best suspicious. Vitiligo is usually somewhat splotchy when it starts. I don't know what he's been using, but it can't be healthy if it makes you lose your pigmentation. :no:

    Oh my Lord & Taylor! He looked so much better before. This was on the news last night and they hinted at the steroid issue and him trying to even out the effects of blotchy skin.

    Of course they blame "steroid use." Then they claim "vitiligo."

    Vitiligo causes blotchy loss of pigmentation, not uniform lightening of the skin. If he had vitiligo, he'd have light patches. Considering how dark he was a few years back, this would have been very apparent. Michael Jackson made the same claim: that vitiligo caused his skin lightening. If this were true, and these guys use make-up to cover the blotches of white, then why choose such a light shade? Also, why does Sosa have light green contacts on his eyes? He's obviously trying to look white.

    Shame.

    I have acne and on dark skin folks you really don't need to apply lighters. You allow it go through its course while applying sun screen to avoid the dark scare marks. But he's doing is bleaching for his ego.

    Of course! He probably needs it now more than ever. Contrary to popular belief darker skinned people do sunburn and get skin cancer.

    All of this begs the question: why would he want to appear white?

    He is Hispanic and Hispanic blacks do not consider themselves black.

    Michael Jackson suffered from lupus and vitiligo which caused very apparent skin pigment changes that were embarrassing to him. He consulted a dermatologist and was advised that lighter make-up could mask his skin changes - and it did:

    I thought he was Dominican? I know a few Dominicans and they don't consider themselves black either. I find that weird since so many are darker than Yaphet Kotto at midnight, in a dark alley. :biggrin1: :rofl:

    He is Dominican. They are Hispanic. I just meant that if you ask if they are black they will say no, and then name their nationality instead.

    If Sosa possessed an anti-black mentality that would be true in his case (which you said is possible for Dominicans). However there are Hispanic individuals who quite happily identify themselves as being black.

    I was hazarding to go a little more deeply. I was really looking for a fundamental answer that goes beyond "white makes right." Is this sociological functionalism? sociological conflict? Vertical mobility? Differentiation? Inequality? I don't see how a guy who has everything would want to change his life so drastically.

    All I can say is being white never helped me along in life. Affirmative action helped douse the idea that white makes right....or so I hear. Either way there's gotta be a bigger story here. he is like NINE shades lighter. I don't think at this stage he needs to be whit-er to get ahead?

    You make it sound as if Hispanic Dominicans don't want to be considered black, but don't you mean that black Dominicans aren't accepted by the Dominican community?
