*****But if you ask anyone who loves Blackness, they will not put any kind of supremacy on light skin black or dark skin blacks*****
Could you possibly identify someone who has put "supremacy" on dark-skin blacks for me please.
For some reason, civilizations developed near water. Am I to assume that because a civilization realizes the powers/necessities of water, that part of the Earth is "superior" than another? Or is it that some realeyes what water means in the balance and sustenance of life. We need Air, Water, Fire and Earth combined...all just as necessary.
So even though Water represents the possibility of life and Water is the major component of the Earth's surface and our Bodies, does not mean that Water is superior (to Fire, Air and Earth).
So I would not consider positioning a possessor of spiritual, mental AND physical blackness in a leadership position any different from civilizations positioning themselves in proximity to Water. No superiority, just recognition.
