She's not a dumb girl as some people seem to think. I think she has business acumen. I also, however, think she came across as defensive and a tad unaware of the implications both psycho-social and medical of such a product . And that name.... just WHY???.
What are your thoughts, peeps? Do the explanations behind the motivations for her product make sense? As African women who know that quite often, taking care of blemishes is the least of the uses skin lighteners are put to, can we accept this explanation? Where should the issue be tackled? At the level of demand or at the level of supply?This is an issue that affects us. This is our story. She is one of us. Let's tell it together.
Now since we are all classy ladies and gentlemen, I'll ask that we keep responses polite and respectful of the lady, no matter how much we might disagree with her viewpoints.
