Soledad has been interviewed about her childhood and said she always considered herself black and so did her white neighbors on Long island. Being Black on Long Island isn't easy so I am sure she is a bit familiar with the struggle.

I don't take anything Kola says serious.. She batshyt crazy.. I don't like that trollop.. and why she so worry about Soledad? Maybe cause her looks (not cause she mixed called everybody mixed don't look good) and money shytting all over her.

You guys are confusing issues. Kola basically wants us to disown a cultural aspect of AAs that developed due to slavery. We didn't start it but It wasn't created by the KKK, she's an idiot for that. when a slave was raped and bore the children of her master they were slaves too.
Culturally, they were "us ". They are our parents, grandparents, siblings, cousins. Why should we disown them because Kola said so?

i've never really encountered a mixed person who dismissed the rest of their lineage for the sake of not upsetting other blacks in america. they'd always say that they were mixed.

...I don't get it. Black folks are represented by them because that's what people want to see. Actresses like Viola Davis could've been the norm in present-day showbiz and those ladies you listed would still be black.

Because the one drop rule was so easily adopted, blacks today are represented by this:






No hate against these ladies and I do consider them black, but there is a clear disparity in what is considered black and attractive enough to be more widely represented to fit the black niche.

They can't even scout out a person of a darker complexion when they want to portray a person of a darker complexion.


Basically because the one drop rule has been so heavily accepted and adopted by all, more and more diluted versions of blacks are the ideal of blacks.

It's a very sticky subject because there's so much to delve into.

Also even if we kick out those who fail the black test, yall are fools to think that will elevate black beauty in the eyes of racists. I'm not sure how us not accepting our family is going to stop racism.
