It seems just as bad as white people sunbathing to get a tan, the sun causes cancer. P.S. I HATE when white girls have a major tan, it looks sooo gross, why can't people just be happy with their skin color?
They also used to bleed themselves with specially made piercing devices to maintain that fashionable pallor. That which is done in the name of beauty all too often disgusts and appalls me, today included.
