Apparently not unheard of in places like the D.R. where rich people pay big bucks to have their skin lightened. Don’t know if underground or official medical procedures in hospitals but have seen a few articles about it. Human nature. Wanting to somehow show you are better or more special than the guy living down the steeet. Very sad of course that people internalize this prejudicial stuff to this degree that they are willing to screw up their own body.

He probably has vitiligo. Michael Jackson had it as well. If you know what vitiligo is, then you know a person would probably prefer to even it out if they have the funds to do so. Not really something to make fun of it that's the case.

In Sammy Sosa’s native Dominican Republic, the desire and everyday struggle to be fair is the stuff of legends. Black and light, and the right shade of light, underlie much of the societal tensions amongst the peoples of Hispaniola, with Haitians in the West and dark skinned Dominicans regarded unequivocally as less-than. So it should not be surprising that the formerly black Sammy Sousa is now a lighter version of himself.

Skin whitening has a long history in the Dominican Republic, as author Junot Diaz reminds us in “The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao“, with his reference to former dictator Rafael Trujillo, “who bleached his skin, wore platform shoes, and had a fondness for Napoleon-era haberdashery.”

Let's be clear about the "even it out" part. There are whiteners that will even it out, BUT there are also darkeners that will even it out too.

No doubt that with all Michael Jackson's plastic surgeries, he wanted to look white.

I dont know if MJ had vitiligo or not. I know he claimed he did and he also claimed he never had any plastic surgery, that his appearance was all from just natural aging. The man was a pathological liar.
