I know you weren't doing it, was speaking to what I saw on social media.Oh i wasn't dismissing their pain at all....i guess, the Dark Girls show was only one hour, this one was two hours and it seemed to go intp more historical and psychological depth than dark girls...which made it easier to empathize with their pain, meanwhile dark girls just made us seem bitter about our color
I was discussing it on Madame Noire page and it seemed some of the light skinned women couldnt wait to jump out and call dark women bitter and angry and insecure, just for discussing the documentary and obvious things....when one woman said she wished they didn't leave out the light skinned privilege aspect, they jumped down her throat and denied it exists. One woman was saying she dont like Iyanla Vanzant and it was obvious that it was because Iyanla was dark and the poster was light.
When the dark women spoke of how hurtful it was that Black men felt light women were trophies, the light women again went on attack mode and dsmissed the dark women. They were quite shady...
It is STUPID to deny any of it. But people get so caught up in their personal pain, they don't allow them selves to see/hear/listen to what someone else has gone through.
Remember one woman in the documentary talked about every Friday, like clock work...she would be followed into the girl's bathroom, beaten up, and clothes ripped off. She said it got to the point, she wouldn't even use the toilet.
Chante Moore mentioned girls coming at her with scissors threatening to cut her hair off. The visual of a child being encircled with scissors coming at you is cringe worthy.
How can anyone dismiss that???
