yes..... though I was not in J&J.... but this was my experience with members as a young girl.....

however, as an adult..... I do not think colorism plays as much a part as it used to..... at least not in DC/MD..... I think money and status trumps this now......

There was always talk about money and who has the most of it.

Titles were very important. "That is Dr. Blah Blah Blah daughter."

Kids were made to feel like shit if they did not go to a Ivy League school or a fancy private high school.

Yes...... I experienced this too......


As in most organizations.....

there is what is preached....

and then there is what's practiced......



Peace,
Virtue
