    had to make the white folks feel comfortable.. they love their own image so the
    more you look like them, the less threatening you are.. that and.. that was the
    aesthetic that black folks aspired to..

    *sigh*...so sad...I'm not against light skinned folks, my mom is light and my daughter is too...we come in all shades...I just wish we could appreciate the fact that we DO come in different shades....it should be a celebration

    as long as we understand that the dividers are seeking to turn us against
    each other by favoring one above the others... as along as we understand
    that and we don't respond to the manipulation by turning on the favored
    folks.. then we are ok.. but if we take the bait, it's a wrap.

    how does it feel to look back and recognize that the primary vehicles used to beat down the esteem of black people.. women, in particular, slipped in under the guise of something positive for black people.. and by black people? The damaged damaging.

    For all the positive things those magazines did.. what did they do to our girls?... to our sisters.. to your mothers?.. the ones with dark skin.. the ones ridiculed in the halls at school... the ones that faced the onslaught of "black this.. black that.. " from black people..
