"AST responded to youu inquiry about her. Do you think she is misguided when she said that she has experienced favoritism even in Afrika? Do you think she is delusional or vain???"
were the acts the colorism guided by politics or were acts of colorism based on social interaction?
within the realm of social interaction - colorism definitely exists. people also experience favoritism based on their level of wealth, beauty, and a host of other reasons. my point is this - when is comes to 'politics', and the act of someone participating and decided for what person to trust, etc - they do so normally in the context of their individual and hopefully in the 'communities/worlds' best interest. i dont think that masses of individuals form a conensus to support someone based on whether they are light of dark black.
i ask you again, respectfully, to compile some relevant data to support your premise of colorism in the 'political' context?
To say that colorism only exists in entertainment is mind-blowing. But like I said, I'll be back to address your important points.
i didnt say that i said this: "I am one who does not agree with the political argument of colorism. I do think colorism exist in the entertainment industry and within some social networks"
