Since slavery, African Americans have been manipulated to find fault among one another based on skin complexion (does anyone have a paper bag?...) Perhaps this is due to loss of identity, lack of self-esteem and/or lack of knowledge. Through this "mental enslavement" it has been easier to look at our differences rather than what we have in common. What do you see when you look at the mirror? What kind of judgment(s) do you make based solely on how someone looks? Are you happy with your identity or are you concerned with how other see you?
The issue of black self-hatred is something I am supposed to pretend does not exist. However, the great French psychiatrist Frantz Fanon wrote about this issue in his groundbreaking book Black Skin White Masks, in a chapter called "the Lived Experience of the Black Man". According to Fanon, the black man is viewed in the third person, and he isn't seen as a three-dimensional human being. The black man internalizes the perspectives of white society and its negative thoughts about blackness affect his psyche. In the chapter, Fanon discusses a white child calling him the "N word" and how he becomes cognizant of how he is different and viewed as someone people should fear.
There is also a fear by some black people that discussing the issue of self-hatred is a sign of weakness. There is a discourse that black people engender: that black is beautiful. But the truth is, the image of blackness is ugly – at least it's perceived that way. There is nothing special or wonderful about being a black male – it is a life of misery and shame.
The issue of black self-hatred is usually depicted from a female point of view. There are documentaries such as Dark Girls which aired on Oprah's OWN network earlier this year, in which black women discuss their feelings of self hatred for having dark skin. There are numerous books, articles, documentaries, and essays published by black female writers describing black self-hatred. Black women are not afraid to speak out about their self-loathing, yet for some reason, black men are silent about our own contempt for what we are.
It happens almost like clockwork. Every month the mainstream media picks a situation out of thousands of injustices to highlight. Each month another officer sworn to uphold the law gets caught on camera shooting, brutally beating, or harassing someone with their wide variety of weaponry. The people they choose fall into one of four categories: 1) teen to young adult 2) elderly 3) working class to impoverished 4) brown to black complexion. With each month the same thing happens in the community: bitter outrage, nonviolent protests, people swearing that this will not happen again that their actions, their picket signs, their words, will change things... until, like clockwork, it happens again. Next 2RAW4TV we ponder the possibilities- what if the people became revolutionary instead of reactionary? What if the police really feared doing harm to the citizens? What would it look like if, instead of being victimized, people decided to SHOOT FIRST?

Federally, among the illegal aliens coming into this country, is about 65,000 unaccompanied minors. Many believe the flood of incoming illegal immigrants is orchestrated, seeing it as child abuse by the federal government.
These illegals are being specifically shipped into conservative areas in California, Texas, Arizona, and Oklahoma, a strategy that some believe is designed to change the complexion of the electorate, as well as influencing the ratio between republicans and democrats in the House of Representatives.
Tonight, Elizabeth Letchworth, our Capitol Hill insider, gives us her take on what Congress can and must do about this -- if they can do anything about it at all.
Issue: Skin color and complexion is a hotly debated topic in the black community. It is not being debated again as a new up and coming Disney starlet has been cast to play the departed R & B Singer, Aaliyah. Someone will always think your complexion is too light or dark; even someone who shares your racial backgroud. Seems like there is no just right for us. Who's to Blame?
Do we Blame history and Willie Lynch? Or do we Blame ourselves for perpetuating the exploitation of Lynch. Or is this just a consequence of us being different?
