in your statements i do find some truths. however the broad generalizations which you speak, are a little off, in my humble opinion.
i am sure that we all can attest to experiencing the affects of racism on some level, be it as a result of our complexion, or we may experience racism based solely on our ethnicity-African.
what i believe you and others have insinuated is that dark africans experience racism on a more profound level than lighter skin blacks. if i am wrong in this assumption, please correct me.
we all, regardless of our complexion are interested in the upliftment of our people-both at home and abroad, true? if this is the case, i would think that energies would be more useful in recognizing and discussing solutions to the problems of ALL AFRICANS, at home and abroad.
now, for the sake of argument i will agree that pigmentation has been cause to judge darker blacks more harshly in some cases.
regarding this statement,
"It is impossible for us the very dark skinned African Blacks to ignore that in genetic color completion whites and very near whites are the most privileged and the most respected while the most profound aggressions are directed towards us.."
these whites and very near whites are the most privileged and the most respected by who???
this sounds like a personal/psychologial issue, not one that can be broadly generalized. now, i am a dark bredrin (http://www.geocities.com/ital_ayurveda/ifreejudgenot)
however, i differ completely in your assertion. my reality is not dictated by white suprmacy. there are factors, that yes affect me and my people, but I will never equate my stuggle to a light skin dark issue. this is trivial in my opinion.
how many light skinned presidents are there in africa?
how about light skinned african american congressman or senators.
check carol mosely braun, jesse jackson, mlk, al sharpton,
heck even jc watts the ex senator (republican) from oklahoma is dark.
do you think rebels in sierra leone or congo, only kill and maim dark africans?
anyway, i will try not to give this topic more of my energy. all africans need to lively up themselves and create a program that will help iani forward back to africa asap.
