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 whoâs âconsciousâ about the oppression from white people, thus leading her black people to a ârevolutionâ 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 fat, 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 âleaders,â so to say something so invalid like, âWhat makes you think dark-skinned people are superior?â is erroneous on all accounts! No one thinks that! No one believe light-skinned blacks are inferior. No one thinks they âre not good enough to be black. We don't!!! I am not praising light-skinned blacks whose privileges got them to where they âre 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 smart and conscious one while the darker girl is obviously a âsidekick 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 helping 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.
