From Indian to Maybe Some Kind of Spanish, Italian

A new Facebook app in India by the good folks at Vaseline – for all your beach-chaffed thigh needs! – promotes the company’s line of skin-whitening products by transforming profile pictures of your face into something a little less rape-y. India, like everywhere that skin color exists, favors lighter skin over darker for more than just the increased melanoma benefits.

The result, the this writer’s eye, is an app that turns Kwik Stop Punjab Ranesh into maybe a 3rd generation Gomez or 2nd generation Bianchi.
