    Question BLACK is beautiful




    But we come in different shades; YES I make some dumb comments to FACK wid some members. My question is why some people in the AC community think/act like Dark Skin is better or more African than lighter skin people. I think we are all beautiful in our own way








    *AC = Afro Caribbean

    more times the lights skinned dont push for there african roots because dem either tryin to align themselves to get up in the social structure they are in, and or we never see droves of light skin blacks from africa, so they have no 'foundation' to say they are truely black

    Hahhahahahaha


    Soledad O'brian has a Australian father and Afro Cuban, mother so that example is pretty much null because she is at least bi-racial in any standard.

    I take this a joke because its clear why people in the Afro-Caribbean have a problem with light skin, if they take after your example WIs would subconsciously mislabel what is black.

    Dragon to start of, hell. I say first that I don't know u personally so this may be just for joke but your comments are indeed dumb. You do appear (based on your internet persona) to be intelligent but your comments and pics are contradictory to this fact. AC historically have not acted like Dark Skin people were better than light skin folks. But after yrs of being told that they were not good enough because of their complexions they had to be build a coping strategy and increase self love.

    Trust when I tell u in the Caribbean if your mixed or Light u get better treatment( even in the US). Case in pt I have a indian gf who went to be interviewed by SHowtime(carnival band) to be on the truck selling beer and at the interview they were only looking for douglas, indian or anyone high yellow or mixed. She didnt except the job through principal and the fact that they didnt hire her darker complexion friends(one madras and the other black). Even the billboard in trini have more douglas and light skin folks from Piarco all the way to de walk over in Cocorite. So these kinda things u would off course have to promote self love. Besides how much light skin people did you see as field negros.

    But that's besides the point because we do need to get away from the feeling of resentment we have for each other to improve our lives as black folks(AC or Afro Americans or whatever). So Dragon your postings are not helping but perpetuating the BS(although I dont think its your intent). Well I hope it isn't your intent.

    People act very convenient when they want to eh? I am not into perpetuating certain mentalities, and I don't find it funny.
