light versus dark skin

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.
