Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

Ok let's shift gears here and talk about the real issues in our society. Not the economy, not health care, not nukes in Iran.

After seeing this picture today I am wondering if President Obama is bleaching his skin. Or maybe this job is turning him into the stereotypical 'old white guy'. Or this job is sucking the 'soul' out of my 'brotha from a different motha'. I'll start a poll.

Whatever the reason is....I hope the guy gets some sun and rest. We all don't like where the country is at...but I have never seen a President try harder than Barack.

Re: Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

I was given two choices and I voted no.

I looked at some pictures of Obama posted on the web. In some of the pictures his skin tone looked darker than in others. It seems this difference is caused by the lighting.

If he were bleaching his skin I would find that to back my thinking he may be wanting to appear a white man instead of a black man. I guess I should say he probably at times wants to appear white and at other times appear black.
He did have a white mother and a black father so maybe that would be natural to feel this way when of a mixed race and raised in a white family environment. If any of what I have said is true in that he wants to appear white sometimes and black other times, I would imagine the black race would be the race the most upset with Obama. I form this opinion because of hearing some blacks say they were upset with light skinned blacks thinking they were better than dark skinned blacks and also some blacks saying they were upset with blacks who appeared to be wanting to appear white.

If he were bleaching his skin some would say white people tan so why can't a black person lighten his skin.

In Obama's case I think you could question his reason for bleaching his skin and consider it would be done for more than cosmetic reasons. I am thinking this because of his importance and influence in our world today. He is President of our country, America.

I would love to think he is proud of being a black man and would not bleach his skin and appreciate his color, race and be himself.

DIfferent pics often make people's skin tone appear lighter/darker.

Re: Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

I have it on good authority the bleach job is being done after hours by a Mr E.A. Presley in a room at the back of the McDonalds store at which he works during the day.

Re: Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

That doesn't even need to be photoshop. That could just be a raw image that has yet to be edited. Raw images often appear much lighter than they should.

Re: Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

I doubt he's bleaching his skin-you'd see patches. It's the camera; looks like different lighting to me.

I highly doubt the cig was either. Because he did smoke when he was around the age of that picture. Which would be when he was younger....

Re: Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

His wife was upset about the cigarette photo and felt it was printed to show a flaw in his character. The photo is real and, as far as I know, he still smokes.

When I look at the picture of Obama with the cigarette hanging out of his mouth I look at his posture and his eyes. He looks either tired or intoxicated.
So if this picture was put out there like you say his wife thinks, it is showing more than a smoking addiction. If a person viewing the picture wanted to see something that could be considered a character defect.

Personally I don't care if he smokes or drinks.

I was looking again at the picture of him with the darker skin tone. When you look at his neck there are different shades of color and also the color is much lighter than his face. I assume lighting causes that.

I know now I am going to pay attention to his skin color tone when he is on the television or in his pictures. I do find this interesting that the difference in his color is so extreme in these two pictures.

I would think the media will pick up on it if he is bleaching his skin and we all will know soon, if he is.

Hopefully if he is bleaching his skin it will not become an obsession for him. We do not want him to end up as white as M Jackson was.

Re: Is President Obama Bleaching His Skin ?

Barrack Obama is working extremely hard. So I'm sure he is very tired. I just don't like the way he is "fixing" things. I'm sure there is more than one way to get to the right destination.
