The first point in my article was to draw attention to the other areas of negative discrimination developed from a post by Tyehimba, which I thought was timely. I sought to highlight the fact that Black has become a sort of euphemism on the Internet that often neglected the legitimate views of real dark-skinned African people who have direct experiences with these issues.
All people can claim to be African today and many claim to be Black in the metaphorical or metaphysical sense but they unconsciously negatively discriminate against real dark-skinned Blacks. This we know is a fact. So the topic was to highlight this fact and to throw focus on the suitability of dark-skinned Blacks to define and legitimately lead their own to address these issues.
I personally know there are people out there who have experienced more levels of negative discrimination that myself (in a physical sense) so my focus is to always help inform and promote them ahead of me. I let them lead.
Integrity is the hallmark of a leader and such a person first leads his or her own self and never claims leadership, fights for that position or fights to hold on to it.
