In Senegal, West Africa, there are Black females, who
Xessal [Pronounced "hess-al"]

XESSALING = SKIN LIGHTENING

You can tell that a Sister XESSALS by the discoloration of skin around her knuckles.  One Senegalese Sister told me that she wants a husband.  She said that she Xessals in order to make herself more attractive to Black Senegalese men.  She said that some Senegalese males prefer light skinned Sisters as their lovers and wives.

Of course, France colonized most parts of Senegal and French [white] men love our beautiful ebony Sisters.  But, sadly, some Black males don't.
