You're the one speaking in broad generalities, talking about "systemic mindsets". I am merely providing evidence to the contrary.

Yes. Those who are involved in the organization. bsm

Again, I'm not trying to deny you whatever experience you have. I am just offering evidence that suggests that your experiences are not universal ones.

The organization does not "look down" on anyone - particularly other black people. Certain people may, but "looking down" is certainly not a behavior that is exclusive to any group or class of people.

I mean.... MBM... you have an entire organization of people that favor you... because of it.


First of all, that's just baloney! Please share whatever evidence you have to support your assertion. You know of someone who otherwise would have been a part of the organization except for their skin color?

Second, I was attempting humor. There are entire organizations that "favor" brown skin folks too. So what?

Third, as I mentioned, there is color discrimination within our community that cuts both ways. In what way can you attach that to this particular organizastion - particularly when I have first hand - multi-generational, multi-regional experience to the contrary.
