Since it's fake(?) I guess it doesn't matter but saying what's on the inside is more important than the outside makes it sound like dark skin is a disability. Jojo is dark but that's purely coincidental.

Jojo doesn't look like anybody. He was switched at the hospital and nobody told him

ETA: wait,
does "You're not even very dark " = it aint as bad as you think?

This is dumb. Yeah what she said did come off wrong but why ask a light skinned girl for advice on dark skin insecurities anyway? Her self esteem is not Angela's responsibility. Angela knows nothing about being dark skinned. Now people are mad at Angela. But what about the teen? She's the one implying that being dark skinned is a negative. That shyt erks me. It gets old. Okay, you wanna be light skinned, boo hoo. Get a backbone and stop making the rest of us look bad.

It's just so pathetic. Like "Boo hoo, I'm dark skinned, tell me something to make me feel better."

ETA: what I don't get is that people are getting mad at Angela for allegedly implying dark skin is bad. But the person who wrote in (who is dark skinned) obviously thinks dark skin is bad too! And that's worse! And no one is sick of that?

Of course people are tired of the vicsious cycles that eat away at the esteem and psyche of our people.
But these seeds were planted in most fertile environment---the subconscious mind. Some of us are so subtly conditioned that we bat for the other team while consciously reppin' our own.

And this is precisely what the subconscious mind is supposed to do. It runs the operating software for the most sophisticated computer to date.
So bear with a young black girl who is born into a world that is purposely set up for her operating software to be susceptible to malware and viruses, then the subconscious mind not being CONSCIOUS of this, seamlessly adapt to the structure of those same viruses.

Since Angela claims the page is fake (but is yet to show receipts of her real page) what would happen if the owner of the page is actually dark skinned too??

We just have to remind each other to defend our minds, because while it is our strongest weapon, it is also designed in a reflective way that could 'turn' on itself because it is highly sensitive with raw intelligence--similar to how the Earth bears fruit.

Pay attention to the seeds you sow, and the seeds others sow in your soil, for we are made as a reflection of a reflection of a reflection of a reflection...

And so in essence, we reflect and absorb onto and from each other. This reflection is the very fibre that connects us to our human, cultural, and personal 'identity'.
