|Black woman's smile|
"People don't choose their complexion from birth and yet, people still can't see the human being but the color. The Willie Lynch teaching is still alive and damaging." - Dr. Sinclair Grey III
The fact that Black people relish the division around color speaks to a fundamental truth: "Black Americans cling to their tragedies!" They relish the contempt they get from how they place each other in a ranking system from slavery days by other groups in particular white Americans. I have long lost interest in the subject of light vs. dark skin.
The few times I think about the subject I am disturbed by the collective commitment to immaturity and the acceptance of roles Blacks are loyal to to a fault of their own making.
It is a distraction from maturing.
Gregory E. Woods, Keeper of Stories
