The Dark Skin Behind The Mask…

Colorism is back.  In all its ugly forms. The shade of Black you are determines what level of acceptance you receive today.  Many thought this had died after the 60’s but that was all covered up when the late multiculturalism convinced many among us that race no longer mattered.  We all were safe now from the big, bad, white hooded, masked racists who terrorized Black people in old times.

But that was all a lie.

White people are evil creatures who inflict many mental wounds of people of color and I was thinking today of just how deep it reaches.

Malcolm X once asked: “Who taught you to hate yourself?”  He highlighted this in this timeless speech in 1962.

The only reason this matters is because many Black people are psychologically programmed to hate themselves. Mental enslavement is a disease that can only be cured by self-love. You learn to love yourself from your parents.

At the end of the day, what you think of yourself is the only thing that matters. I’m honey-complexioned and don’t feel marginalized because of my skin tone. I do have female relatives who are dark-skinned, as we all do. Yes, I’ve witnessed firsthand how colorism impacts our people.

Black people are too concerned with what white people think of them and this is where the problem lies. Why does it matter to us what they think? A white person trying to dictate beauty standards on Black people is the equivalent of a cat trying to teach a dog how to bark. Their opinion should not even matter.

The ignorance that white people project on Black people is innately them projecting their own self-hatred onto us. What they demean about us, in truth, is knowing that Black people are what they can never be: THE ORIGINAL PEOPLE OF THIS PLANET.

Our Blackness is our blessing. Their white skin is a curse. That hate that Black skin because it is a constant reminder from the creator of who was created in HIS image.

White people are at negative birthrate right now. World wide, the white population will be cut in half in less than 35 years. This has caused fear of extinction in as little as 100 years. What does that say?

Our skin is melanated gold. Our brain and body can’t function without melanin. Melanin is the chemical key to life itself. It is the major organizing molecule for living systems.

We are the only beings on this planet that have the power to create another race–other races cannot do that.

The next time any white person tries to inflict their mental sickness onto you for having dark skin, remind them that it’s because of the component of that dark skin that created ALL LIFE.

What this says is the BLACK LIFE DOES MATTER because without out it; nothing would exist.

We are the world!

  1. Thank you sis, I trust what you say is the truth.

  2. As a person of very dark skin, I know first-hand colorism hasn’t gone anywhere. And truth be told I had to reach way down and far back to feel any kind of pride in my Black self. Black people are programmed indeed to hate anything that ain’t white or better/worse yet anything that is Black.

    I was having an exchange with some Black dude the other day and this clown had the nerve to tell me I’m just mad because he’s cute and I’m not. He was, of course, a poisoned gene pool, recessive dominate, light skinned, green eyed negro who thought it fine to toot his own horn. Me being me had to pop his high and mighty bubble by letting him know that in no way should he be so proud of himself because Black people are trained to like anything that ain’t them. So your cuteness is just a form of mental illness in the eyes of the mentally ill. And yes, true to form the only come back was “haters gonna hate” like some sleepy high schooler.

    All that being said, being darker skin has been an albatross that has formed a person that was meant to be so much more. Being darker skinned is the weight of nigger, thug, ugly, angry, hateful, mean, lonely, hated on top of everything else that being Black is. Take notice of darker skinned Black people, the ones who aren’t outwardly broken are for sure broken when no eyes are on them. And I would even go so far as to say 95% of us are shadows of what we should be. But I don’t say this because we are helpless, I say this because in spite of all this weight we still manage to get up and face this world dark skin and all.

    As far as colorism goes well, that’ll be here as long as we allow it to be. As long as women are still put into these corrals based on skin color. As long as we still take pride in being someone’s fetish. As long as self-hate is the order of this day. As long as hurt people still hurt people; so in other words colorism ain’t going nowhere, but we the ones of us that know better can move from it as best we can. But only if we stop playing white folks games on each other.

    Yes, I be bitter and hurt by my travels in this life and this skin, but my only option is no option so here I’ll be – getting up and facing this world.

    Thank you so sis for this article too bad the ones that need to read it won’t.

    And big up to dark skin women who have it so many times worst than I can even begin to understand. I am inspired by my sisters.

      This was beautiful, Hung.

      I’ve witnessed firsthand how colorism impacts Black people. I remember a lot of dark skin children that I went to school with being terrorized by other Black kids. It was a travesty but they were taught to behave that way. Another reality of this is that in many of our own families, our own parents and grandparents exhibit favoritism of lighter skin children or those with “good hair.” No wonder so many Black people are messed up in the head.

      However, Hung, I can tell you firsthand, Black women prefer dark-skin Black men–especially light skinned women. It’t true.

      As a Black woman, I really don’t have a color preference for AA men–just as long as they treat me well.

      Don’t be down on yourself.

      A BLACK man was the image that God created first. You are the HIS firstborn. Don’t every forget that.

  3. Yes black people need to affirm who we are.We need to expose all the lies.I wonder have wp realized that Simon of Cyrene,the man who carried Jesus and his Cross to Golgotha was black.Well Simon other name was Niger,which I believe is a country in Africa.Black men:That is the stock that runs in our blood and veins,as Cicely Tyson says (Take your place).Just found out the biggest liberator in freeing slaves in Columbia was a black man.The lies are starting to get exposed.The wratched wp will continue their misguided anger towards blacks,as they see everything they hold dear ripped from them.But Latin leaders like President de Allende of Chile and Fidel Castro told the US that their evilness was going to come back to bite them.Also found out that old Secretary of State Henry Kissinger is afraid to travel outside the US due to the fact that he might be detained for possible war crimes.And white people still don’t know why they and the US have been targeted.I’ll close with one of my favorite quotes.”I’m going to bring the US to it’s knees and I’m not going to fire a shot”.Fidel Castro.Fidel if you live 5 to 10 more years you will see that come to fruition.Have a blessed weekend Truth

      Oh, yes. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7. The Bible is fulfilling itself every single day against the race that has done to most to undermine his authority, power, and deity.

      WE need to affirm who we are. White Power/Supremacy was built on a lie and our existence, struggle and triumph, has made their presence on this planet obsolete. Nature has selected them for a reason. We are God’s Chosen people…

      • Another good one truth.This is why I laugh when white people say they spread Christianity throughout the world. I remind them that they don’t even know why black became slaves.The Native Americans told them point blank that all major people in the Bible could not be all blue eyed and blonde in a region dominated by color.We fell for the bamboozle.Even more important,I tell white people there is nothing in the Bible that says,spread Christianity and then tell the people who you taught it to for them to hate themselves and tell them they are cursed.But since wp think they’re superior,GOD is now showing them how much superior they are,and I for one is laughing about it.God bless

        Even they know they are not and can’t be superior. What they are is diabolical, human representatives of Satan. Literally. White people embody all the traits of that Lucifer. That’s why many serve him.
