    I made this thread due to and answer I saw in the thread that is pertaining to the petition to stop an all white cast playing a role that should be play by blacks. The response was "who cares if white people play us."

    I felt that my response needed a thread of it's own to explain why we all, as a race should care. Who, and what we are has been systematically, over the centuries, stripped from us in various forms such as brutality, denial of education, education, advertising, and TV.

    The reason these young burthas and sistas in this video think this way is due to being brought up in a system that reinforces the things you see in this video. White is good, black is bad. white is pretty, black is ugly. Now you have celebs that is helping to perpetuate these thing by bleaching their skin.

    And if that wasn't enough, you have a movie made about us, who's characters are being represented by a race that stripped us of these things in the first place.

    And lets not forget the movie Noah, that had no blacks in it, eventhough we existed during that time.

    It is one big circle all over again, which is you destroy the true image, and systematically insert your own in it's place.

    So,yes, I think we should care, because not caring, in and of itself is what got us in this situation in the first place.

    Peace!

    I've read some of this book but not all. The part of this quote that stick out is this:

    Many of us have bought into hating ourselves be we have believed this system that was designed to teach us to hate ourselves. They know they have no problem with our young which is why we as parents have to do our job and teach them.

    Peace!

    As well as bruthas on MBs posting pix and videos of mulattoes and hi-yella women with long, artificially straightened hair and pronouncing them.... hot! And just as in the OP video, little black sistas (AND bruthas) internalize their "ugliness" because they aren't "light, bright, almost..." or have long lanky hair flopping like a wet collie's in the breeze:



    And yet we have bruthas on this very forum who have no problem with women who are light-bright or half-white being depicted as representative of 1/2 of the race, shouting from the rooftops that the "black doll is ugly." Bruthas so firm in their conviction of white, you're all right/brown, stick around/black step back! that they DENOUNCE People Magazine for putting such a black woman on their cover and calling her beautiful.

    As when black men post pix of "beautiful" women that scream: white woman, you're all right/brown woman, stick around/black woman GET BACK! And label them "sisters." When the MAJORITY of pix black men on this site post are of sistas with AFRICAN features, i.e., dark skin, then bruthas can talk about "true images."

    I agree 100%! Every thread depicting black women that brothers have posted on this thread PROVES that in 2014, every single one of them would FAIL the "hot sista test."

    Brutha $$Rich$$ has a thread pertaining to what is the cause of our disconnect, reading it reminded me of this thread I made. IMO, it's a part of the problem, some of use (thru the media) has learned not to see the value we have as individuals, and as a whole.

    Peace!
