rebelleflurr asked: I'm a light skinned girl. I have had more racist encounters with black people than white. Whats your take on it?
when you live in a state of white supremacy - unlearning your implied otherness takes time and healing and education that black people are DENIED.
I had to educate myself as a light skint person that I was not only black - that is was white supremacy that kept me from acknowledging my blackness and trying to have a relationship with other black folx.
Im not trying to say black folx don’t perpetuate oppression - I’m saying we didnt fucking come up with it and that as light skint people no dark skint person owes us their kindness when we’re already seen as more attractive/worthy/human than themselves. we’re taught in media that light skint is better and we’re gon’ play like dark skint people don’t internalize that toxic shit but wanna analyze it next to white privilege like it’s not the catalyst?
