Dealing with colorism:
I am going to share a thought
and I want all the
#TeamLightSkin and #TeamDarkskin people to think about it. Also I want the people who are pleased with
BillDuke’s improvisational docudramas #DarkGirls and #LightGirls to consider as well.
Colorism is a product of white supremacy and creates light skin privilege under the notion that people and things that are more white are better that those things that are less white,
less white like,
We live in a society in which black kids are more severely disciplined than white kids
Darker black kids are more severely disciplined than lighter black kids
Discipline actions exacerbate the school to prison pipeline –
Creating a underclass related to race AND complexion.
So exploiting complexion privilege and participating colorism – is the work of the OPPRESSOR.
As a black person… is that the role you want to play, that of the OPRESSOR?
