#BTBYC The Preservation Of The White= Beauty Myth

"On March 11, 2017 in a now-deleted tweet, Cosmopolitan wanted to remind you that white women are the most beautiful in the world.

I came across this tone-deaf tomfoolery on my twitter TL, and had the vague memory of having seen this shit before. In fact I had, via Yahoo Style, in July 2016.

And even though the article written by Cosmo was published in August 2016 (screenshots at the bottom of this page), in the seven months that have passed it obviously has not occurred to them that retweeting this message is galvanising their endorsement of the harmful Myth that whiteness equates beauty.

The message is clear: the ten most beautiful women IN THE WORLD are either white, or light-skinned (number 2, Kim Kardashian, is Armenian while number 8, Selena Gomez, is Mexican.)

These are the findings of Dr. Julian De Silva, a London-based facial cosmetic surgeon.

Listen, I’m not here to knock anyone’s legit hustle, as long as it doesn’t come at the expense of anyone else’s dignity."
