For my last research post I thought I would discuss the other research projects that fellow students presented on. After watching all the presentations I thought some people had some great ideas and topics. Specifically, I really enjoyed the presentation on the lotion that promoted skin “whitening”. I had never previously heard about a practice that is instituted so deeply in a society. The video that she showed the class showed a man that used the lotion and in-return he got his dream job. Furthermore, it showed how different societies are compared to the U.S. and the different levels of beauty. Moreover, I was astounded that societies are still pushing beauty standards that are inherently racist.
With this being said, I was really happy that we conducted these presentations because they allowed me to see the differnet ideas and projects that people came up with!!!
