Another question. (Please do not be offended or construe my questioning as intent to antagonise. It's just that I have heard something similar to what you have articulated, it started off as rational but it soon plunged in to a sort of caste system)
Would being proud to be black or even a shade of black prevent you from seeing the beauty in other races or shades of Black? It doesn't neccessarily mean one is racist, but I have always drawn towards girls much darker or much lighter than me. At a party, they are the sort that I talk to first. But then, I could also mention that not only do I like really dark or copper light skin, I also like braids and height and large eyes. So, my criteria for beauty ends up going beyond race.
I think as Africans we have always been proud to be Black. But it is not in the same way that whites would say they are proud to be white- their pride comes from being able to develop delusions about their superiority, yet manifesting shocking inferiority complexes. Last year I worked briefly at a company where just about every white person there- and there was only two of us Blacks- was BNP. I would listen to tirades about how the country was being "swamped", and did not look like England any more. Yet at the same time, they would be on about the best place to get a tan, and the women about collagen in their lips.
Our race pride has got to be different, not determined by knee-jerk reactions to white racism.
Oh, and by the way, you did not answer my question on albinos to my satisfaction.
