no one is going to kick halle out. 
but halle is mixed. and its okay to say that. 

i see what you're saying honestly. i just don't agree.
most/some black people measure how black you are by how white you can't be. 
like nahla.

when southern posted the messages in that thread, I looked on Kola's twitter TL and it was almost the exact same thing.
 
I found it funny tho because she's really good friends with Sole' who identifies as a black woman (and she's mixed with all types of stuff) so i wonder how she feels about this

The bolded is exactly it. That's the kind of black they want. It's the kind of black they prefer. I never denied their blackness but because they are more mixed or diluted versions of black, they are deemed attractive.

There were times where black people were widely in showbiz and were closer to their original form by the masses, with mixed individuals also being in showbiz too. But these days, there is a huge disparity in that to the point where black actors and actresses, including Viola Davis, recognize the higher difficulty in being black and working in Hollywood.

The thing is, even though this is all media based, the media is indirectly ran by the people. The media dictates but the media also conforms for profit.

This is a confession I found a long time ago on tumblr.

Ugly, right? Unfortunately, this attitude is more common than we think.

EDIT: I  didn't even bold what I wanted to highlight in her post, shame.
