Sunburn is a White Man's Condition
Who told y’all that Black folks didn’t need sunscreen or protection from the sun? It’s only half way through summer and I’ve seen a number of folks on social media noting that sun burn was a white man’s condition in attempt to assure Black folk that they didn’t need to purchase and utilize sunscreen.
The last time that I checked, Black folk have skin and skin needs to be protected from harsh UV rays that the sun emits. That being said, when you carry your behind out to the beach this weekend, throw some Banana Boat in your bag. Moreover, make sure you’re using a facial moisturizer with SPF in it on a daily. Yes—even when there isn’t any sun out because UV rays can penetrate the clouds.
Honestly, this whole notion of Black folk not needed protection from the sun must be a trick of White Satan. He comes to steal, kill, and destroy and he wants your skin to age as poorly as his people’s. Don’t fall victim and find yourself aging like milk or peeling like a snake because you didn’t want to apply SPF. Don’t let your chocolate melt in this hot, summer sun.
