Sammy Sosa’s skin transformation explained?

November 8, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Former baseball slugger Sammy Sosa and his wife, Sonia, were in Las Vegas for the Latin Grammy Awards this past week. But while Sonia was looking great all eyes were on Sammy Sosa’s noticably paler skin.  The lightness of his Sammy Sosa’s skin had some wondering whether he might be suffering from the skin ligntening disease,  vitiligo, for which there’s no cure.

After all the photo on the left of Sammy was only taken 6 months ago. But before we start cracking saw a ghost jokes or paying tribute to the gloved one, former Cubs employee Rebecca Polihronis, who talks frequently with Sosa tells the Chicago Tribune: “He’s not trying to be Michael Jackson.” “He is going through a rejuvenation process for his skin,” Polihronis said. “Women have it all of the time. He was surprised he came out looking so white. I thought it was a body double. Part of (the photo appearance) is just the lighting. “He was doing a dermatological skin process after years and years (of playing baseball) in the sun,” Polihronis said. “It did come out looking weird (in the picture).”

    Sammy Sosa suffers from a condition called SELF HATE! Which is a condition that many people of the African Diaspora suffer from, whether they be Afro American or Afro Latino. There is a false perception in these cultures that lighter skin makes one more beautiful. Hatred for his dark skin has compelled Samy Sosa to mutilate his God given complexion to be what he and many others deem more desirable. Such a pity! He ruined his beautiful complexion to look like a FREAK. And what is with the colored contacts??? Can we say GAY! Samy you and people like you are a disgrace to beautiful black people all over the world.
