Fairness Cream? Seriously?

Looking through the Bangalore newspaper last Thursday, I came across a 1/2 page ad for "Fairness Cream".  On the ad was a picture of a very light skinned Indian man holding a jar of cream. "Whiter in 7 days".  Seriously?  I asked at work, and I was told by my colleagues that it is "very popular here".  Bleach your skin so you can be more "white"??? That's completely messed up.   I took a picture of the ad, but that is locked on my  my XD card (so links here and here).  "Fairness Cream" = "White Man cream".  Unbelievable.


  1. Based on the title, I thought this would be a post about a skin treatment that makes you take a more balanced and thoughtful stance during a debate.

  2. Q:How did he do in last weekend's debate?
    A:Splendidly, his arguments were point on, he spoke eloquently and passionately. You could say that he creamed his opponent.
