Yes, but it's Black folks that keep this nonsense going though.
We can't keep blaming the White people that died 300 years ago for all the color-struck crazy AAs out there today that perpetuate allll these color distinctions between all of us. So I say stop blaming White people for our own problems.
Otherwise AA are still slaves because they don't have any control over who they are. AA have got to take responsibily for keeping this mess alive because we can never change history and it that is your only yardstick for why these things are said .. then it will never go away.
Just like using words to put down black people like the N word. We used to be called that so now foolishly AA think that is we claim that word ... it's ours we can abuse each other with it .. but then THEY (Whites) can't use it. Now how is that working out? (Not)
Heck on this board the AA people pull up yet ANOTHER word that used to be used to put down Blacks (coon) and try to use it ... against othet AA people. Duh! I have never heard that word being used by Black people until I heard it on this board.
So White people don't have to denigrate us anymore with these words because NOW we use them against each other. They can just sit back and smile at how well they have trained us to dog each other.
That's why I say .. it is our own responsibly to stop using all this stuff against each other.
IMO it's a lost cause in the AA community
because it is too easy to blame THE WHITE MAN for everything. That way ... you don't have actually DO anything. Just stay a victim.
