Again, my use of the anthropological term "negroid" was not to offense. I LOVE Africa and all her potential, I don’t post to insult my people or my ancestors!
Now, I realize the term “Negroid” can be/IS pejorative, so I will cease to use it to not upset intelligent and COURTEOUS black folks. However, the greater issue of COLORISM is still abounding!
What about those light skinned black Sudanese and others in Mauritania, Somalia, Niger, all over Latin America, India, etc… using VERY RACIST official national ethos through the schooling system, religious based indoctrination and via numerous other methods to enforce COLOR boundaries to a large extent? The use of the “Negroid” word is not as offensive and DAMAGING as the traditional White/Light Skin vilifying and discrimination of the kinky-hair-dark-skinned-black-Africans, we cannot forget that.
My intent is not to offense but to draw awareness of very poignant and callous realities for I believe Information shapes conviction and conviction promotes Compassion and Action!
