And nobody heard him.
That’s the shit that hurts.
This disease, by the way, is called vitiligo, and in lots of cases, it doesn’t only effect skin pigment. It can effect the pigment of the irises, and hair. A lot of people who have vitiligo get skin bleaching just to even out their skin tone, but it comes with many health risks.
My little brother has it, and since my family is so pale, it only becomes noticeable in his hair (eyelashes and a patch on the back of his head are white) and when he tans in summer. He’s lucky that he doesn’t have to have prominent skin discolorations, because I’ve read some seriously disgusting stories of people with darker skin being bullied and ostracized because they are “becoming white” naturally, or choosing the bleaching to have an even skin tone.
Michael Jackson has a point, and I hope everybody learns about this rare condition from him.
