I will "celebrate" any Black person who identifies him or herself as Black and lives the "Black Experience."
However, many "LIGHT-skinned" African Americans do not "celebrate" their light skin because of the White slavers and White employers and White neighbors who raped their African ancestors which produced their "light skin."
who cares about your hangups
clarence thomas, roy innis and jonas savimbi are darker then me and I am brown skin
now if that rhetoric pertains to the brother posted then fine
otherwise give your negativtiy a break
I never said nor implied that this is any "hang up" of MINE.
There is no "negativity" in my previous statement.
That is a FACT of many, not all, but MANY "Light-skinned" African Americans
Many light-skinned Blacks HATE their LIGHT-skin BECAUSE they know HOW they got it.
Do some Black history reading.
That reminds me of the story of the
old retired black stdues teacher in Baltimore who would the day before Kwanzaa go to the black book store and buy 500 dollars worth of black childrens history books
and go out into the economicly disadvantedge neighborhood
and leave books there for all of the children, that he knew where in the area, at their front door so they would have a wonderful surprise when they woke up
but there was this stray poodle that would sit and atch and every time he would leave something good for a child,
this poodle would run up and squat and urinate on the books
Those who seek temporary security rather than basic liberty deserve neither...
Queen Mother Moore
“Yes! Yes, that raping, red-headed devil was my grandfather! That close, yes! My mother’s father! She didn’t like to speak of it, can you blame her? She said she never laid eyes on him! She was glad for that! I’m glad for her! If I could drain away his blood that pollutes my body, and pollutes my complexion, I’d do it! Because I hate every drop of the rapist’s blood that’s in me!”

.......sister, sister, sister...there was absolutely no need for you to respond to that person, really. You said nothing like what he implied...smh. This causes me to wonder why we waste our time arguing with him...smh. I can't figure it out for the life of me, cherryblossom. Ima try very hard, without using my ignore button, to do just that...ignore him. But I can tell you were raised right, like me and usually speak when spoken to, good ole home training. Oh well, just wanted you to know he assaulted you with words untrue...Peace In,
