FOOLYWANG MATERIAL: Vybz Kartel RELEASES Line Of "Skin Brightening" Products For Men

We told you earlier that reggae artist Vybz Kartel was proud of his scary skin bleaching.  And now he has a line of prodcuts for the man to do the same thing.

Come inside to find out how you can give the man in your life light skin just like Vybz!

Although Vybz Kartel aka Adidja Palmer is currently in Jamaica facing murder, conspiracy to commit murder and illegal possession of firearm charges stemming from the shooting death of Barrington Burton, that hasn't stopped his hustle and flow in the skin bleaching department.

The artist is coming out with a line of men's skincare products and it will include items that can be used to lighten the skin.

But why would you do that?

Well....for some (ignorant) folks, having lighter skin implies wealth.  And during an interview where Vybz defended his use of cake soap to lighten his skin (cake soap and Vybz's skin brightener are two different products) he said,

'When black women stop straightening their hair and wearing wigs and weaves, when white women stop getting lip and butt injections and implants … then I'll stop using the 'cake soap' and we'll all live naturally ever after.'


And p.s., although he is starting his launch in the Caribbean, Vybz has said, 'I wanna see them in Macy's and all other fine retailers worldwide.'

Hmm......does Vybz has a point?  On the flip side, do people accuse the Jersey Shore kids of being uncomfortable with themselves for tanning?  Just playing devil's advocate.

And for the record, no matter how many ways I look at this, skin bleaching is still ignorant.  Yeah, I said it.

Why do our black people

Why do our black people insist on ourselves look foolish by trying to lighten the colour that we were naturally given. Having a lighter skin does not automtically give us a gold pass for a better or more enriched life. Vybez kartel should take a look in the mirror as he does'nt look good, he just looks ill.

Why are we black people doing

Why are we black people doing sooo much to change what god made us to be. I want to pose a question. Were you ugly as a baby? I ask because as a baby you had your god given hair as little girls and boys, everything about you was natural then you grow up and do stuff to your hair, get surgery,lighten skin and to me look alien like. Why? are our babies ugly?

meh to everyone defending

meh to everyone defending weaves/contacts and the other mess black people do to look closer to caucasoids. when was the last time you scalp burning, relaxer slapping weave warriors have seen your natural hair? most of you chicks wouldn't get caught DEAD walking out your house or going to da club with a "kitchen." self hate is self hate, regardless of what form it takes.

Yeah self hate is self hate

Yeah self hate is self hate and he has a point. But, black people because of the history with us and white people wanting us to feel less than and hate ourself so that they can be supreme that stuff runs too deep and when I hear of black people self hating it hurts. Don't you all understand how other races see how beautiful and talented we are? why can't we? There is nothing wrong with us. Because of others inferiority they still put us down and turn around and do stuff to their bodies to look more like us. As a black person, black people please let's love ourselves the way the creator made us, he did nothing wrong and made no mistakes.

My family is from Jamaica and

My family is from Jamaica and I feel sooo ashamed that this man who is Jamaican is a self hating negro. Not only does he hate himself. He is in the public eye, which heightens the situation. I would hate for anyone to associate his type of thinking to a person who is from Jamaica's mind state. Whats even more sad is that people are buying into this self hatred. More and more I keep seeing young men and women bleaching their skin. I am proud to be where I am from, and I have never felt inferior to anyone lighter than me. Skin bleachers should be tucked somewhere never to be seen or heard from again. Giving us a bad name.

As a huge fan of Kartel, I

As a huge fan of Kartel, I have gotten over his bleaching because he is damaging his own skin not mine. You make your own choices and he is a grown ass man. Lil Kim looks like Lil Choi Hung and Micheal Jackson looked like a zombie. All three I loved for their talent and I will still buy their music. I grew up around ppl who didn't like their skin and bleached them, it never bothered me or forced me to bleach mine. My mum and sis are light-skinned and I am dark and don't feel inferior in any way.......Bottom line - to each his own, leave the judgement to God. As for the murder charge, I hope its not true - THAT IS A REAL ISSUE BUT PPL HERE ARE MORE CONCERNED ABOUT HIS SKIN

ok,im a little bit perturbed

ok,im a little bit perturbed to hear people comparing lightenin to tanning! Ok, to me tanning is more natural than lightening/bleaching. yes, people go to the tanning salon but you dont have to. All you have to do is go outside and you will tan! But bleaching is way more damaging to the mind than tanning. White people who tan, dont want to look black but less sick as in white sick! Black people who bleached wanna look like a "better" as in lighter version of them! they are more in depth issues when it comes to bleaching whereas tannning is like a fashion! like "omg, you just came back from holidays?" But i dont see non eof those white women who tan going to get a curly or afro wig to look like us??? Seems like they still want to look like white women!

First of all you make no

First of all you make no sense. What is the difference? The last time that I checked tanning is just as harmful as bleaching the skin. There are white women who are getting ass injections and lip injections, would it be safe to assume they want features like Black women. Black women are beautiful and inno way do we want to ever look like a white woman, so I do not know where you are getting your facts from. Some Black women straighten their hair for convienience, so that thew hair is easy to tame, not because they want to be white.lol You can straighten your hair allday long we can never make our skin white. It puzzles me how white people always assume people want to be like them. White people are not the only people on the face of the earth with straight hair. I love being a Black women. I wouldn't have it no other way. My gold sun kiss skin is beautiful the way God made it. Whit epoeple seem to have lots of issues too with plastic surgery, but I am not going to sit here and make generalizations about the entire race.

If that's the case why not

If that's the case why not all the light skin people get tans so we all look alike. We don't need to change anything, dark skin is the most beautiful skin color.

what makes me so sad about

what makes me so sad about this whole story and his words is how he could not be happy about what defines him and made him be a respectable performer- had he been white he wouldn't have been as successful as reggae artist...he can't compare bleaching your skin with having a nosejob or straightening your hair- if you straighten your hair you can always go natural if you boost your lips or have a nosejob, you admit, that you weren't happy with how a part of your body looked like so you changed it. But bleaching your skin to this extend??? You can't compare it to tanning cause-hands- the darker your skintone the healthier you look (I'm not talking about the black/white thing but that's why people love tanning, they look fit and healthy) but with him? He looks like a healing black eye on a white mans skin! It's some kind of yellowish, then again greyisch and I dunno what it is...deathish(?!) He just looks like a patient in hospital having two more weeks to live. He had a nice skin and skintone! I wanna take and shake him! What is it with those skinbleechers? I would never bleach my skin, I love my chocolate complexion and whenever the sun is out I make sure I'm too. I could understand if you bleach some dark spots or a little bit to make your skin look more flawless ( though me myself I'd never do that) but I can't understand it when you start to look like a whole different person and it becomes obvious that you have issues with your etnicity. And that's what it comes down to.

Lmbo @ Tu fiakwa! Chei. Naija stand up o. Second thought, maybe not, b/c I can def see lots of our women RUNNING, not walking, to buy this product. The way we have been brainwashed into buying into European standard of beauty is beyond me. Black is beautiful, in all it's NATURAL shades, tones, sizes, etc.
