There is an Afrikan proverb:
Bad student = bad teacher
If this so-called "distortion" (as you say) happened, then may I respectfully suggest that somewhere along the line, those who originally posted that wordsound, and those who valiantly defend it, FAILED miserably in making that DISTINCION better overstood.
Several conscious ADULTS here have all come to that conclusion (in regards to light skinned Afrikans and the foolish reasonings thereof) Had this been made CLEAR from the get go, then we wouldn't be experiencing the FIYAH ever since the post, right?
Its about the DISTINCTION that was made, seperating "Real Black" versus (as opposed to) light skinned Afrikans.
Again, if that was not the intention, then di I's have miserably failed to communicate properly.
