    I DID NOT WRITE THIS I GOT IT FROM LIPSTICK ALLEY AND TUMBLR


    i think it is a shame that dark skinned people never get credit for standing up for blacks/not being colorstruck. i think it is a result of us finding light is right and dark is wrong. so we ignore the don lemon's of the world and act like every sellout looks like clarence thomas

    Am I really supposed to believe a biracial girl with light-skinned privilege is going to be the one who’s “conscious” about the oppression from white people, thus leading her black people to a “revolution” at her college? Am I supposed to believe she'€™s the smart, sensible, and racially conscious one over a dark-skinned, monoracial female supporting character? Is colorism going to be mentioned in the satire? If not, try again, black people.

    Yes, and W.E.B. Dubois was a colorist who referred to another black man as a €œfat, black monkey.Those other people had immense light-skinned privilege, Malcolm X and Davis. I am not moved because these are the people who get the most credit for Civil Rights, but the only dark-skinned people we can efficiently cite are Nina Simone and James Baldwin. Your defense has no merit because these people are always represented. Light-skinned people are always shown as the “leaders,” so to say something so invalid like, “What makes you think dark-skinned people are superior?” is erroneous on all accounts! No one thinks that! No one believe light-skinned blacks are inferior. No one thinks they ’re not €œgood enough € to be black. We don'€™t!!! I am not praising light-skinned blacks whose privileges got them to where they ’re at. I will not give them a cookie because they can see their black in spite of their light complexion.

    It is not believable that the light-skinned privilege girl is somehow the €œsmart€ and conscious€ one while the darker girl is obviously a â€sidekick€ character. This is real life. This is a system that gives light-skinned blacks credit for not leaving their darkies hanging. I am not thankful for light-skinned privilege €œhelping€ the black community when many people who are darker have carried the community on their backs without any credit. I do not like conditional people who only care about light-skinned privilege as long as it doesn'€™t criticize those who have it. I saw the trailer for what it is, I read the synopsis, and I came to the conclusion that it is about a biracial black girl with light-skinned privilege. I made my statements, and I don'€™t need other light-skinned black people or apologists try to argue with me on something I noticed.

    :hello: ... COMMUNISM ... Welcome Welcome Welcome !!! ... :wave:

    Thanks for joining us and sharing ... but we're much more interested in your thots ... vs ... someone else's.

    It doesn't seem fair to the other site ... to take their stuff and post it here ... though it is the nature of the net.

    It's a great topic, surely we could have our own discussion ... share our own thoughts ... ya know? ... :look:

    I aint fuss'n ... not really ... all the way ... yet ... :wink:

    Actually ... I started a like topic myself some years ago ... Celebrating Dark Black People ... :love:

    Thanks for joining us and I do look forward to reading your thoughts on great topics!

    Much Love and Peace.

    :heart:
