SORT BY Relevancy
Tonight we'll be discussing some issues surrounding light skin people such as the popular saying "You think you all that cause you light skin!" foolishness.
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.
"Light skin v.s. Dark skin"
"Stereotypes such as Light Skin Vs. Dark Skin within the Black community are cancerous, dangerous, and shape how we view ourselves and our people. Fortunately, we can solve this problem by teaching and mentally reshaping how we’ve been trained to think and behave"
Ben "Teflon" Walton
Have you ever been told that you're cute to be dark skinned? Are you treated differently because you have lighter skin? Can the self hatred stop within the Black community? If you answered yes to either of these questions join us as we discuss the war between dark and light skin in the Black community
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.
What inequalities exist in the workplace as it relates to skin cmplexion?
What responsibilities does society play in the Black community views skin color?
What roles does skin color place in the Black family?
How do we deal with the sigma surrounded around skin complexion in Black community?
Black Is Beautiful in all complexions so Love the skin your in!!
We have a very good topic tonight and guest Activist, Rashida Strober. She has come under fire for these words:
“Well, well, well would you looky here. ANOTHER FAKE CONSCIOUS MUTHER F-KER EXPOSED. I will never support him nor his music with one dime of my money and encourage all dark skinned women not to either!” she wrote.
Strober’s comments gained traction with folks who either fully support the “Dark Skin Is Beautiful” campaign founder or didn’t share her views on Lamar. In response to her nonsupporters, Strober posted the following response:
I see calling out and exposing self hating fake black men who speak about consciousness but date and marry NON DARK SKIN WOMEN brought you haters to my page. WELL SHARE THIS MUTHERFUKING POST!!! These type of fake coons are the worst of the worst. DARK SKIN is the essence of true blackness and if these fakers were really and truly conscious they would MARRY DARK SKINNED WOMEN!!! You pissed ?? GOOD!!!
Since 1998, Rashida Strober has been known as an advocate for people with darker complexions, according to her biography, which mentioned that her cause was inspired after years of bullying from classmates who put her down because of her complexion. Stage plays created by the Florida native include “A Dark-Skinned Woman’s Revenge” and “Ice Cream Lady’s Dream.”
