The Garvey statement was a joke actually. I was hoping u and others would see how foolish I sound and reflect. Is classism a factor? How about economics? And I dont want to hear that most light skinned people are wealthy. I know dark skinned blacks who are paid. I know dark skin black who impose classism as well.
How many light skin CEO's are there in corporate America? How many are in direct control of the wealth of America or any other "first" world country? How many light skinned blacks are on the Forbes list? I guess there "priviledges" didnt allow them to go that far, eh? Your reasoning is true in some cases but not all. Therefore the generalizations cant hold water. Your point has been made that this occurs. So does so many other things that are detrimental to InI peoples. This all started from a personal disagreement with Rootswoman. U decided to post your thread in means of "getting at" Roots. U can deny it but who feels it knows it.
I am not light skinned. I would not pass that paper bag test. Nor do I desire to be white or congregate with them outside of necessary exposure to them at work. So I am not defending Iself or any other friends of mine. I am speaking truth as I see it.
The question has been asked if His Majesty was qualified to lead several times. I have not heard any response yet, or I missed it somewhere. I didnt expect u to resuscitate your reasonings because u dont sight InI Negus as earth's rightful ruler.
As Mike Tyson and Ras Ifree says, "ludicrous."
