In Response To: "I have an issue..." by selassielive (Eja)
"This may be why there is some disagreement regarding colorism. Many of us were raised in different environments and have different experiences. I was riding the train today and looked around at all the black faces. Most of the faces I saw were brown Afrikan people and not blue black Afrikan people.
This is why I probably have an issue with brown leadership being challenged. In america, most of the black leaders have been brown with a shade or two higher or lower.
I am not dismissing others views of color relation amongst black. I just have a different experience concerning it.
Again, in America, if you are black, you are a nigg**. They might not say it in your face but get them upset and you will hear it come out."
