Cuando Era Sammy Sosa

December 30, 2010

Sammy Sosa antes and despues un hombre blanco.

Shame of your dark color? What about those dark eyes? And your “pelo malo?”  Well, no need to fear Sammy Sosa is here. He’s so happy with his own transformation into a white man that he started a new business venture to sell the miracle European whitening cream to other black people dissatisfied with their skin color  even gave a jar of the cream to the black Latino newscaster that interviewed him  from Primer Impacto the Spanish language television program. The Latin Journal Blog from the Barrio downloaded the Primer Impacto video from YouTube. What do you think about what Sammy Sosa has done to his skin and image?

Saving Face? Colorism, Colonialism, and Sammy Sosa.
