A step backward in time...scenes of Queen Elizabeth I and other past royalty. You will see some men and women with heavy white make-up on their faces. Is this a sign of Royalty? YES, at one point having a very pale complexion was considered fashionable for men and women. It was also a sign of wealth and nobility. Many would go to great lengths to achieve this look, sometimes even comprising their HEALTH.
A pale complexion was considered ideal, especially for a woman. To have tanned skin meant you were of the lower class and worked outside. If you were of the higher classes, you had more leisure time to spend indoors which would protect you from the SUN. Therefore the highest class of Society ofter had the fairest complexions.
Current face of Royalty...etc.
A face of integrity...etc.
A face of dignity free of...etc.
Portrait devoid of...etc.
A British quality Icon...etc.
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.
If you're anything like me then you think that you know a Black person when you see one and you know a white person when you see one right? But do you? Are you sure? Are you always sure? The truth is that Black people come in so many different shades of dark and light that it's not always as easy as trusting your eyesight. You can be easily identifiably Black by being dark with kinky hair and other features but you can also be blonde haired with blue eyes with straight hair like Laurin Crosson has.
Do you think that because you have the features of a white person that you will automatically enjoy white privilege? Watch what Lairin has to say about that.
Do you think that because you can pass for being white that that would automatically be what a person would choose to be? See what Laurin has to say about that.
Do white people always accept a person who is visibly white as their own? Ask Laurin.
Would the Black community embrace a person that looks white as one of their own or would they scrutinize and write a person like that as a fraud? See what Laurin's experiences have been.
This show will be a lesson about acceptance and identification. About learning that what you see isn't always what you get. About learning how and where to fit in and be comfortable despite being different.
This is about learning how to make it against the color complexion odds from a different perspective than we are used to hearing it from.
Most of all this show will be about what being Black or white means vs how it plays out in real life.
This show is sure to please.
