Nahhhhhhhhhhh u can tell a lightskint wrote this
"we all black"
probably gets told “you’re not like those other black girls” once a week and says nothing
probably is the first to volunteer some sort of mixed heritage
probably is the first to turn up her nose at anything “ghetto” or “ratchet”
girl, shut up.
so yall wont accept solidarity from anybody that doesnt look exactly like you?
This is about light skinned women throwing up “we all black” for cover while pulling colorism shit left and right and disrespecting supposedly “low” Black culture.
This is about how much of that “unspoken tension” comes from a pattern of light skinned women throwing dark skinned women under the bus.
This is about the Black girl equivalent of that “we all bleed red” bullshit.
It’s got as much to do with turning down solidarity as calling that kind of garbage out does, which is nothing at all.
Every. Light skin. Fucking. Girl. Doesn’t. Do. That. Jeez.
Open up your fucking minds. It isn’t about a cover up. Some people actually desire unity in the black community. Yes. Colorism exists and I HATE that. I am of a lighter tone and hate that that is automatically associated with putting other black women down. History has fucked us up badly. And people are still angry, with understandable reasoning. But be able to recognize when a woman genuinely isn’t putting another down. My message was about equality. That we are all women of color and need to work on showing one another more love. I have met little girls who scratch their skin til they bleed in hopes of losing color and it breaks my heart. I am not on the opposing force. Not every light skin girl is about acting “better” and above others. One day hopefully you’ll see that. It was a message of positivity.
