I never said I disagreed that ideally, black women should be in the forefront. Black women are the mothers of Iration. I say black women, opposed to "dark" black women because I dont think there should be a delineation between how dark the hue of the black woman.
That is where I have the problem.
You are correct when u said, "Black people as a whole (and not only we) get spat on by white supremacy every day."
Black people as a whole are suffering. When I saw the footage of Katrina sufferers, I saw light, brown and dark skinned suffering and dying together.
As far a leadership or mentorships goes, I am only concerned with a qualified black person who is aware of the injustices of the white supremist system who wants justice for the poor and oppressed to reign as the waters cover the sea.
After all, it is to the point where it is rich vs poor and not a black vs white situation.
This is why I posted about compensation. Ones seem to think it is compensation to promote strictly dark people to counteract the promotion of white supremacy.
Does the righteous man deal only in extremes?
Why cant we promote justice?
Justice is not just about color.
Colorism is just another ism and scism of babylon in my opinion.
