Stop bleaching your skin

Do Not Bleach

This artwork is a plea to people to stop bleaching their skin because of what is called Colourism. This is where people with darker skins are discriminated against.

Oscar-winning actor Lupita Nyong’o referred to colourism as “the daughter of racism” in “a world that rewards lighter skin over darker skin”.
