this notion is counterproductive and borderline tribalistic.
AFRICAN IS AFRICAN IS AFRICAN.
YES THERE IS A DIFFERNCE B/N A TUNISIAN AFRICAN AND A AFRICAN FROM SENEGAL. HOWEVER, I met a sister from the Congo who is bright yellow? is she not African, or does she not feel the effects of racism.
the theory that is presented regarding dark skin/light skin african, is regressive and points to the philosphies that was formulated by the apartheid regime and is still utilized even today in Southern Africa w/ the Africans and Coloured separtion by skin tone. One Black Heart One Black God One Black People.
