Dark Skin, Light Skin, Straight Hair, Nappy Hair: Do Black Men Reinforce A Color Caste System For Wo
Viola Davis, last nights Emmy winner for Best Actress In Dramatic Series, gave a historic dramatic speech in which she quoted Harriet Tubman, and thanked the writers and actresses that enabled her to "cross the line" and win an honor formerly accessible only to white women. Previously, when actress Lupita Nyong'o won an Oscar for her role in Twelve Years A Slave, she expressed many of the same sentiments. Is color and hair texture still an issue when it comes to defining womanhood? In chapter four of The Female Solution we discuss the politics behind how women define themselves. It comes down to a battle of genetics. Whose physical traits represent the good people, the smart people, the pretty people? We know of the white doll/ black doll experiment, in which little black girls, when given a choice, selected the white doll as the one that was good, smart, and pretty, and said the black doll was bad, dumb and ugly. How do we talk about that painful reality in African American culture, so we can face and correct the widespread, self-perpetuated color caste system that leaves so many African Americans emotionally scarred?
Your dark skinned attracted to light skinned people, does that make you less black? Why do we view light skin as beautiful instead of dark skin? If a brutha only wants to date light skin woman and he is dark, would he be wrong? Is it true that dark skin people are stronger than light skin people? Why are you attracted to light or dark aren't they still black?
As much as we would prefer not to discuss it, skin tone complications of the past still afflict the psyche of present-day America, according to an article by TheGrio. And, to be sure, the studies the article cites don’t isolate the issue to the black community alone. Rather, the studies report that the issue is pervasive in mainstream America as well.
Even employers seem to prefer the lighter-skin blacks among us:
A 2006 University of Georgia study showed that employers prefer light-skinned black men to dark-skinned men, regardless of their qualifications. We found that a light-skinned black male can have only a Bachelor’s degree and typical work experience and still be preferred over a dark-skinned black male with an MBA and past managerial positions,” said Matthew S. Harrison in 2006, then a doctoral student in applied industrial organizational psychology at Georgia.The study, which sampled over 12,000 black women imprisoned in North Carolina between 1995 and 2009, showed that light-skinned women were sentenced to 12 percent less time behind bars than their darker-skinned counterparts. The results also showed that having light skin reduces the actual time served by 11 percent.
Author Delores Liesner credits her gift of storytelling to her Native American heritage . She is published in several anthologies, including the popular Chicken Soup for the Soul books. She has articles published in numerous magazines, including Health and Wellness, Woman’s World, and Christian Communicator.
Delores shares God’s love in her written work and through ministry and mentoring. In addition to the miracles of the Bible, she believes God performs miracles still today and tells of several in her recently released devotional, Be the Miracle.
Join us on Tuesday, November 24th at 8:00 AM MST, on Step Into the Light with Patti Shene. Delores will share some of her life experiences that confirm her belief in miracles and explain why and how each of us can 'be the miracle.' in the lives of others.
So we'll be responding to a lot of white supremacist talking points from The Great LIght Skin Debate from Mix World United.
That is going to take up most of the show and we might not get to the news.
We'll have Ricky from Americans United Again with us and he's darn good.
