This is the main reason why we will never win a race war.  We want to dismiss half of our army.  Face it people, black people come in many colors.

i have a question lima, do you believe that there could have been no mixing in africa, in your lineage?

i think the point is, more than just white people glorify the light skinned and mixed. so do african americans, and when you have this, you create this mess. you can't 'kick' out anyone. theres just no benefit of claiming any 1 % black person.

When did we start kicking out light skinned ppl.

I thought the sentiment as more along the lines of being so accepting of any and everyone who has even just a little black in them .

People were talking about kicking people out of the Black race. There are many posts and many sentiments. I'm not sure what the general one is.

It's possible, but no one in Nigeria is claiming part Indian, White, Japanese, Mongolian, etc. That is a Western creation. I think African people acknowledge that others are mixed, but I don't think it is a symbol of pride as it is in the West. American Black culture is complex, because of the history. The sense of identity has more elements. It makes sense why people consider this issues. "What is Black? Who is Black?"

this is the post that caught my attention. I just dont understand the thought process at all. I mean I guess I do but I dont. Idk how to explain it.

Black in America isn't the same as black in Africa obviously. But go ahead and kick out all the light skinned folk that look white to you and see what we left with.

I'd be ok with that *shrug* I actually like my people and my lineage and what we've fought for and what this generation of people are working so hard to destroy (a true black identity) :)

Yeah, there were a few posts and the race pm (from the "new" member) about how there is so such thing as a light skinned Black. I am still confused over who we are kicking out and why. Someone learn me.

So we're just the Lady Liberity of races ?
Some ragtag group of racial castaways
But if you can find just a little bit of black somewhere along the line that makes you one of us?
