    I think it's weird that you find it weird that I have an opinion (more of a guess, really) about the use of bronzer, so much that you felt the need to jump in and tell me it's weird. So there.

    Is there really that much to know about bronzer before one guesses who is more likely to use it?

    Women, like men, have uneven "blotchy" skin. Goes for skin of all shades. Black women use bronzer at least as often as women with fair skin.

    The black model in the ad responds to the controversy. Interesting article.



    "“I am a Nigerian woman, born in London and raised in Atlanta,” she wrote. “I’ve grown up very aware of society’s opinion that dark-skinned people, especially women, would look better if our skin were lighter.”

    The complete, 30-second television commercial, Ogunyemi said, actually showed seven models, of various ethnic backgrounds, answering the question: “If your skin were a wash label, what would it say?”

    Even after the filming the ad and seeing the final edited version, Ogunyemi loved the concept and was “over the moon” when she saw the final product."

    I would not have apologized. The outrage is in their own minds and certainly not a reality. Fake outrage is getting nauseating.
