Got your brains washed to the point you're bleaching your skin

from Immortal Technique (Ft. Mela Machinko) – Natural Beauty Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This is a reference to black women bleaching there skin due to the media’s fiction statements about how, dark skin cannot be beautiful. This mostly lies within the movie industry. Once the media makes these statements or implies them, a lot of people believe them, and talk about them… like that #TeamLightSkin vs. #TeamDarkSkin crap on Twitter. This little conflict has settle down from 6 months ago, but it’s still ridiculous.

Because of things like this, darker skinned black females (and even light skinned ones) get a psychological issues telling them there skin is too dark for them to be beautiful. And now there are even more influences from celebrities bleaching there skin… this only makes darker skinned women feel there skin makes them ugly.

With that being said, it is pure brain washing the media has done to society.
