In Response To: But to american blacks, light IS better (discipleofthenile)
Most African American's won’t admit this, but majorities of the black population (living in America and Europe) suffer from self-hatred of some kind at some point in their lives. Racism will do that to you, no matter whom you are. So psychologically, the damage is already done, and try as we might, if we don’t stop DENYING it (as the supremists do when asked if racism still exists today) then we cannot fight it.
Strength comes from knowing, knowing comes from searching. It is we knowing what is being done to us that will help us curb this evil agenda to lighten the black race from the face of the earth. But overstanding comes difficult, especially for the black race.
Do you agree when I sight that White Americans and Europeans cannot do anymore harm to blacks than blacks do to themselves. If we are honest, Blacks hate themselves more than whites ever could. Look around at some black families, and pay attention to the dynamic of each one of them. Some maybe lighter than some, prettier than some, nappier than some. And almost ALL of the time, the prettiest, lightest and ‘more white’ child/aunt/uncle is preferred to the rest of the family. It is a disease that terrorizes households and kills children.
I should know. I’m still living in that household.
The truth is that Blacks admire ‘good hair’ ‘handsomeness’ ‘beauty’ ‘nice skin’ ‘and pretty eyes’ very much, and are disheartened when their children are too dark, not cute enough, or nappy headed. Of course one could say that this is just another symptom of the disease of ‘supremacy.’ But it runs much deeper than that. How deep? To answer that question, one would really have to look at examples like ‘How Race is use to Employ Lights/Darks for jobs. Saddening, very saddening……….but so true.
Our problem is that not brainwashing, but acceptance, and what it takes and means to be accepted by society. To say that lights are not preferred in our culture is a blatant lie. Dark skinned people face prejudices unabound everyday, and if blacks as a people don’t wake us to the tricks and schemes, the enemy may very well succeed in its agenda. The evidence surely proves that whites PREFER lighter skin, and being that America is run by WHITE corporate people, who are some of the most evil, vile, racist sons of B!tchies existing today, who in turn educate their children about hating races, if they continue to lead then the problem will always be there.
How do we stop it? I truly don’t know? I cannot sit here and say that white women/men should not sleep with black women/men (hey, just keeping it real, here) that is really their decision to make. In truth, to deny any man or woman love, no matter the color or form, would just be doing what the evil ones did to us by robbing us freedoms to vote/east in restaurants/use public restroom/exist.
Love and Knowledge is our only way, as I sight it.
Any one thinks any thing else can be done?
