yes, after reading your closing statement again , i'm gonna retract the question i asked of you as it truly does not reflect what you stated though i might add that along with pointing out the problem of colorism and how it affects dark-skinned individuals the forum also needs a healthy dose of possible solutions and imput towards those ends as well and unless ones feel that one solution might be that light skinned individuals refrain from commenting on colorism and that it remain solely a topic to be dealth with by dark-skinned people at which point light skinned people must not be held accountable as they were excluded from the dialog.
whites , who are the actual perps could argue the same, they too must be included in this reasoning.
it certainly is not solely a dark-skinned people problem but one all must deal with . how do dark-skinned individuals come to a solution exclusively their own and expect whites and lights to follow suit intuitively short of the extremely illusive black purist, seperatist, autonomous mission which is nearly impossible to achieve ?
let's us all offer some solutions to this enduring problem and later for who is dominating whatever, let whoever has some imput bring it forward or hold their peace. solutions not confusion, because in this sophisticated enviorment we are all reduced to preaching to the choir, EVERYBODY KNOWS THE COLORISM PROBLEM EXISTS, (not yelling, emphasis)
and if they didn't know they better ask somebody.
the new question is what is to be done about it.
Hitler had a final solution, is this what we need here?
my son who saw me typing here asked what was up , i mentioned the doll experiment he countered that see what happens if they ask black children who they would want on their team in a basketball game Larry Byrd or Michael Jordan , see who they would pick then ?.........*s*
