I’m the worst with gentrification son. I WILL stare out my window and say “omg it’s white people…” O_O
Ever have those friends that you know would be white if they had the chance right now?
My mom always said if she had a chance to pick any skin tone from now for the rest of her life, she’d go into a dark closet and still find hers.
I’ve always believed strongly in that. Be proud of what Jah gave you. That should go for all races. Being proud of who you are doesn’t have to buck heads with a respect for History and a desire to correct wrongs that exist.
But I do have those Black friends, that think they’re down with the fight against racial oppression… but find every reason to hate everything Black.
This includes Tyler Perry, Harlem, the back of Forest Whitaker’s neck, you name it. I know those Black friends, if they had the chance now, would find the whitest skin possible to put on.
Self-loathing negroes need to stop acting like they’re down for the cause.
