You asked: [ So if Afrikan albinos are qualified to lead Black Afrikan movements, then what does that do to the idea of having a dark black Afrikan as an Icon for black movement? ]
* Listen, there are yellow/brown/coffee-colored people who make the African race I know this. This is OUR people in all hues! However, light skinned (mixed race) people are always some reflection of "black people": in Rastafari, religion (j.e.s.u.s), in the media, etc. I feel that they are not a true representation of all blacks!
I hate the fact that most videos have skinny, extremely light skinned, Hispanic, or white girls...no dark skinned, kinky haired with big lips and big nose girls. You will never see them on TV unless itís on National Geographic or something. These albinos (Europeans and Arabs) try real hard to make black people "white." Too hard really! So, the image of black Nationalist movements should tend to have a full "negroid" African representation I think. Skin black as the night sky.
We need to recognize it and make a conscious effort to do it. Because deep down in our people psyche, they seem to believe light skinned or white people are better! It makes me so sick to see handsome brothers marry or date uneducated, ugly, flat-chested, stinky, and obese white women in public because brothers are stupid and feel inferior. However, any Aryan retard wouldnít even marry a trailer trash white woman or date one in public because white men don't want them! It's jacked up. Most definitely.
I think when those of us of the darker hue are able to be the leaders and images of our movements, on TV, and elsewhere the color albatross from around our people necks and seeing white or light as the epitome of everything that's good, smart, beautiful, and worthy (which it isn't) will stop. Then we will be able to stop the self hate!
Does that make sense for you once and for all?????
You asked: [ So according to your reasonings, it is not absolutely necessary to have a dark black Afrikan as the head of a Black Afrikan movement? ]
* It would be very attractive because like I said I like the black-blue color! But I know what your point is.
You said: [ If this is the case, then I dont see what is so different about my reasonings on the matter. ]
* We donít agree because you think I somehow "hate" on light skinned or mixed race Africans. Itís a fallacy!
