When Beyonce stepped out in New York this week in a revealing pink dress, she looked different. Closer inspection confirmed the reason - her skin paler than ever. With her tumbling blonde hair, the world's highest-paid black music star of all time looked more Caucasian (second from left). Not only does it send the message that she is not good enough as she is, it also suggests that Queen Bee (pictured left in 2004) thinks she must alter the very fabric of her being to make herself more palatable to the masses. So why do all these women want to be whiter? Because the beauty ideal they all aspire to is blonde, blue-eyed; Aryan, no less.
