Give thanks for the response.
First of all, I must say that I have not received any known benefits for being brown (unless u talking about food stamps, govt cheese, milk, etc). I grew up poor and I am still poor. Anything that I have, I have received from my own merits.
So let's get that out of the way.
Is it the fault of the child that has an ancestor who was raped by a slavemaster and is brown instead of coal black?
That was the point I was trying to make.
It is their fault if they use it to their benefit at the expense of other black people.
The idea of "pure" blacks sounds like a notion of "chosenness" to I.
What are the "pure" blacks going to do when the prodical sonz and daughters start to return?
Or do the "pure" blacks need the sonz and daughters from the west?
