What A Difference A Day Makes

You’ve probably seen the pictures of former Chicago Cub Sammy Sosa appearing at a Las Vegas event recently having a dramatically different skin tone. This much lighter version of Sosa had some speculating that he may have vitiligo or that steroid use is the cause of his new hue. According to a purported friend of Sosa’s, and Cub’s employee Rebecca Polihronis, Sosa was just as surprised he came out as bright as he did due to his new “cleansing” regimen.

“He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin, he was surprised he came out looking so white.”

So, does this “rejuvenation process” involve contacts and a relaxer? Whatever, Mr. Sosa.

All jokes aside this is an issue. If the rumors are untrue and he doesn’t have a skin condition, then his way of thinking is just sad. What was he being told and shown as he grew up in The Dominican Republic that made him think his darker features were unacceptable? Black, brown, white, yellow, red, purple – they’re all beautiful! Just accept it and own it! LINK via Dlisted
