Hegemony of the “Fair Skin – European Looks” Beauty Concept II

Are fair skinned women more beautiful?

As far as I know, at least in the media in such countries such as India, this is the case. I would nevertheless, say: that the preference for fair skinned people is not explicit.

After all, India had a long struggle to get rid of her White British masters.

But still, this implicit preference for fair skinned people is puzzling

I wonder why…. I mean why fair skinned people are preferred to darker skinned people?

So… is she too dark to be beautiful?

If I were to be given her photos without knowing who she is… I swear…in the first glance… I would think that she is some one with a Pan-Asian look… I mean some one who is not European but yet has some European features…..
