SORT BY Relevancy
Within the African American community there has been an on-going debate about skin complexion preference. Some people prefer light skin, some dark. But why is there a preference? Does one pigment have superiority over another? Is one prettier than the other? Tune into today's show to talk about light skin vs dark skin and where YOU fit in.
Complexion of America Reel Talk Radio will be taking a 3-part look into the true “Complexion of America” today. With all the chaos surrounding the Trayvon Martin death and the recent trial that is taking place, has many American’s taking sides on the issue. One question that keeps surfacing is, “If Trayvon Martin was white and George Zimmerman was black would this be an open and shut case?”We are going to tackle the Paula Dean story that now have Americans th
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.
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 you

Continuing our tackling of the internal issues that maybe factors in the stagnation of the African-American community...tonight we touch on the age-old war between the various complexions in the rainbow of African-Americans. Historians and researcers pose tehoeries that the reason for these battles are attributed to pre-disposed and conditioned thinking passed down to us from our ancestors from slavery days. Others beleive it is merely personal choices and confusion as to what is "better, prettier, or more correct". Whatever the reasons may be, are these wars about skin complexions yet another factor of internal hating? Join me at 10 pm EST to share your thoughts.
