“Queen of the Dark” Disrespectfully told to Bleach her Skin by Uber Driver

“Queen of the Dark” Disrespectfully told to Bleach her Skin by Uber Driver 116

If you’re not black, you might be unfamiliar with the problem of skin bleaching.

The origin of skin bleaching actually goes back to the time of slavery, but today it is a severe problem that impacts people from Jamaica to the United States, where black men and women alike are pressured into applying chemicals to their skin to artificially lighten it at the expense of their own health just to fit into some ridiculous social norm.

A model from South Sudan named Nyakin Gatwech provided the vehicle for this information recently and drew attention to the issue of skin bleaching, when viral headlines were made about how an Uber driver disrespectfully suggested she bleach her skin.

The 24 year old woman now residing in Minneapolis Minnesota said “You won’t believe the kind of questions I get and the kind of looks I get for having this skin.”

It has reportedly been proven by studies that in South Africa, over a third of women polled actually bleach their skin to aspire attaining “white skin” to be beautiful. For example, a South African musician named Nomasonto “Mshoza” Mnisi said she undertook the process of bleaching her skin because she had a “passion for whiteness.”

Skin bleaching is not only physically unhealthy, but much more so spiritually and emotionally unhealthy. Any person who would be dissuaded from loving or interacting with another human being based on the lightness of their skin isn’t worth interacting with.

The roots of skin bleaching really go back to the days of slavery because it used to be very significant in social privilege for a woman to be mixed, white and black, rather than purely African. People were either tortured or humiliated or respected a little bit more just for having a little bit of white blood in them, and not many years away from when that was reality, here we are in 2018 and this paradigm is stuck with us in countries far outside of the United States.

In Jamaica, a dangerous epidemic of skin bleaching is currently taking place. According to an article from News One, a woman from Kingston, Jamaica named Mikeisha Simpson on a regular basis covers her body with skin bleaching cream, and then puts on a tracksuit to go out into the hot sun with just so she can aspire to have more material comfort and stability by finding a man who prefers lighter skin, or maybe she can secure some way to make money by having lighter skin.

According to News One:

The 23-year-old resident of a Kingston ghetto hopes to transform her dark complexion to a cafe-au-lait-color common among Jamaica’s elite and favored by many men in her neighborhood. She believes a fairer skin could be her ticket to a better life. So she spends her meager savings on cheap black-market concoctions that promise to lighten her pigment.

Simpson and her friends ultimately shrug off public health campaigns and reggae hits blasting the reckless practice.”

Forgetting about the possibility of self degradation being a factor the young woman said:

“I hear the people that say bleaching is bad, but I’ll still do it. I won’t stop ’cause I like it and I know how to do it safe.”

Another factor in the creation of a culture ripe for this type of materialistic problem is money. Money is the dominant religion of planet Earth right now: it’s a dogmatic belief that paper has value when really it is printed out of thin air and loaned out to people at interest, at least if you’re using federal reserve notes.

The need to make money and uphold some kind of image in this system just to survive is the thing that makes skin bleaching possible as a popular phenomena.

It’s funny, when people call money slavery, it has more things in common with literal slavery than one might immediately recognize. Money leads people to change themselves, prostitute themselves and do things they wouldn’t normally do to survive: sounds pretty characteristic of slavery.

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded “ghost” in an empty cemetery

Tesla autopilot sensor recorded "ghost" in an empty cemetery 132

A Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved around the cemetery. Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

In the United States, a Tesla electric car with an activated autopilot function recorded an invisible person who allegedly moved through a cemetery.

The corresponding video was posted by Twitter user Ovidiu Maciuc.

The recording shows how a silhouette of a man appears on the monitor of an electric car, moving around the cemetery. After that, the driver raises the camera and starts filming the graveyard through the windshield, but there are no people there.

After some time, the “ghost” went in the opposite direction from Tesla and disappeared from the on-board computer screen.

Social network users jokingly noted in the comments that, most likely, this is some new function from Elon Musk, which allows you to see ghosts.

For many though, if you take into account the comments, the video seemed rather creepy. Some even tried to guess what the navigation system actually showed.

Some users thought the system could recognize ghosts. Others refuted this version and said that the reason for all this is an insufficiently accurate sensor, which was used for the equipment of the Tesla car.

Earlier it became known that Tesla electric cars in the near future may receive a new function with which they can talk with pedestrians. For this, American cars will be equipped with special external speakers. 

In addition, Tesla cars in the future will receive the option to change the horn and sound of movement at low speeds to warn pedestrians. According to Elon Musk, among the sounds of movement there will be the sound of the clatter of a horse’s hooves, and as a whistle – the bleating of a goat.

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel

Mysterious energy source melts Tel Aviv sidewalks, leading to the evacuation of several buildings in Israel 133

About two weeks ago, Tel Aviv residents noticed that the concrete surface outside their homes was heating up and steam was coming out of the ground. Tests showed that steam that reached 60 ° C (140 ° F) was water based.

The witness explains: “I was afraid that there was a power line in the area and asked a worker to dig out the ground with a shovel. Steam suddenly came out. I imagined it was probably a geyser. It seemed to me that this was a geological incident – also because there were no problems with electricity in the building. “

Although the experts did not find any hazardous substances or any risk to the stability of buildings at the site, residents as well as kindergartens in the area were evacuated.

Officials described the heat source as “trapped energy” of unknown origin.

Work continues, steam is still rising and the ground is still hot. It is currently unclear what is causing the warming. Note the hole dug in the area. The area is still blocked.

Mysterious origins

City officials said they will “continue to monitor the temperature of the earth, which is expected to cool down for a long time, and will continue to investigate the causes of the unusual event.”

Israel Electric Corporation has not found a connection between heat and power in the area.

The Israel Geological Survey confirmed the rise in temperature after testing ground and water temperature levels, but said it has not yet found an explanation.

Despite their best efforts, municipal officials, the fire department, Israel Electric Corporation and the Ministry of the Environment have yet to find a source of heat.

Meanwhile, the Tel Aviv municipality has informed dozens of evacuees that they can return to their homes. However, residents are not going to return until they receive a detailed account of the source of the mysterious event.

“They evacuated us because they were concerned about our safety, and now they are urging us to return without any convincing explanation. How can you be sure that there is no more danger? “

The night sky in southern Taiwan shows a weird red moon alarming netizens: 2021 disaster year omen?

Some people in Chiayi, Taiwan took pictures of a large dark red moon hanging in the night sky on the first night of 2021 and uploaded them to Facebook. There are also people in Tainan who have photographed the rare “red moon”. The weird scene has aroused heated discussions among netizens. Some people worry that an earthquake may occur, while others suspect that this is a precursor to the year of disaster in 2021?

Yesterday, on January 1 at about 8:00 in the evening, Chiayi residents shared a photo of “2021’s first red moon” on Facebook. As you can see in the photo, the weather was quite good at that time. There was a clear big round moon in the night sky, but it was a dark red moon, which was very different from the usual moon.

Later, people in Kaohsiung and Tainan also posted photos of the red moon they had taken.

The weird and rare “big red moon” immediately attracted the attention of netizens. Some people think that such a sight is caused by air pollution, and some people think that the red moon is “extremely beautiful”, but many people worry about whether it is a harbinger before the disaster ? 

“Hope is not a harbinger of disaster~”, “A harbinger of disaster in 2021???”, “It looked uneasy”, “After seeing the red moon, I hope everyone will be safe”.

Some netizens worry that this is a pre- earthquake omen.

“Remember the red moon before the 921 earthquake (omen)”, “earthquake precursors”, “I feel that there will be an earthquake again recently”, and “It seems that 2021 will be another year of bloody disaster.”

The British clairvoyant Craig Hamilton-Parker published his prediction for 2021 on YouTube in December last year, stating that, as far as the world is concerned, 2021 will be a year full of social unrest, armed conflict and political changes. There will be difficult times right now until 2025.

He also predicted that the biggest worry is climate and earthquakes. A tsunami will occur near Japan. Large earthquakes will occur in the Himalayas, Iran and the Americas. There will also be problems such as floods, dams bursting, and huge icebergs obstructing shipping. Until 2025, the severity of environmental problems will gradually increase.
