ALL THIS GOES BACK TO KNOWLEDGE OF SELF, IF WE REALIZE WE ARE AFRICAN PEOPLE AND APART OF THE GLOBAL AFRICAN COMMUNITY WE CAN SEE THAT WE COME IN ALL SHADES AND TEXTURES. SEEMS TO ME SOME BLACK PEOPLE ACT LIKE THEY ARE ALL PRO BLACK AND REVOLUTIONARY, BUT DEEP DOWN HARBOR RESENTMENT FOR BLACK PEOPLE, ESPECIALLY DARKSKINNED BLACK PEOPLE WITH STRONG FEATURES. IT GOES BACK TO "WILLY LYNCH". MANY LIGHTSKINNED BROTHERS AND SISTAS SUFFER TOO,BECAUSE OF THEIR LIGHTSKINNED FEATURES PEOPLE WOULD EITHER LOVE THEM OR HATE THEM AS IF THEY HAD THE ABILITY TO DARKEN THEMSELVES. REMINDS ME OF MY ROOMMATE WHO IS PUERTO RICAN.SISTAS WOULD THROW THEMSELVES AT THE BROTHER SIMPLY BECAUSE HE WAS LIGHTSKINNED AND WHEN HE WOULD CALL THEM ON IT THEY WOULD LOOK ALL BAFFLED LIKE, "WHY ARE YOU QUESTIONING MY LIKING YOU, YOUR LIGHTSKINNED STRAIGHT HAIR" YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY. bUT THIS BROTHER LOVES HIS BLACKNESS AND DEEP DOWN WISHES HE WAS DARKER. THEN ANOTHER ONE OF MY ROOMMATES. A HAITIAN BROTHER, ONLY TALKED TO lIGHTSKINNED WOMEN, I WOULD SEE BEAUTIFUL DARKSKINNED SISTAS FEELING HIM, BUT HE WOULD JUST TOY WITH THEM, BUT IS A REDBONE CAME AROUND HE WAS ALL OVER HER. I USE TO TALK SHYT TO HIM, SAYING HE GOT A COLOR COMPLEX,SEE I KNOW ALOT OF HAITIANS AND TRUTH BE TOLD THATS HOW MUST BLACK SOCIETIES IN THE CARRIBEAN COME DOWN,IF YOU LIGHT YOUR CLOSER TO POWER BECAUSE OF THE SLAVE MASTER TIES AND THE DARKER YOU ARE THE FURTHER IN THE FIELDS YOU WOULD BE. MY POINT IS LOVE YOURSELF, KNOW YOURSELF AND KNOW BLACK PEOPLE COME IN ALL SHADES, AND IF YOU GOT A PROBLEM WITH YOUR SKIN OR YOUR HAIR, LOOK DEEP INSIDE AND MAKE SURE ITS NOT SELF HATE. BUT TO ME AS A BLACK MAN, BLACK WOMEN HAVE A SERIOUS COLOR PROBLEM AND LETS NOT TALK ABOUT THE HAIR, LOL
