peace and hotep,
freespirit, in the global system of white racism, people who classify themselves as 'white' also classify others as non'white'. therefore, all 'white' people suffer from 'whiteness'. i do not think that conscious depigmented africans should think of themselves even remotely connected to 'white racism'. just check the 'other than white' box.
freespirit, as for dr tafari, how does the doctor classify himself. my co-worker from cameroon said today that in much of africa many depigmented people of different nationalities are seen as 'white'. but to this i could only state:
"if you do not understand White Supremacy (Racism)--- what it is, and how it works---- everything else that you understand, will only confuse you." neely fuller jr
freespirit, is it possible to love your depigmented skin and hate white racism at the same time?
