It's crazy to me how in sync a lot of black folk's logic is with that of white people when it comes to acknowledging the effects of colorism on darker blacks. Cray.

Exactly. Growing up, it was always unspoken but it was there. It was obvious that the dudes would gravitate towards the light skinned chicks and that families/the community as a whole would treat them more special. The praise on good hair was always there also. I don't understand how anyone can't see that unless they have glaucoma and cataracts. Denial is real.

im glad i didnt carry that with me as long as she did though..

But if it makes you feel better to think I did

I'm sure it happened. As for myself, the only person who ever openly mentioned my colour was my cousin in NYC. We were getting dressed to go somewhere and she flat out told me that she was lighter than me with a grin on her face. I just responded "so what"? She didn't reply and had this satisfied look on her face. And there was my grandmother talking abut why I didn't inherit her "good hair". But my mother shut that down with the quickness. At school, it was the light-skinned girls that segregated themselves and who wouldn't utter a word to the dark ones.

The incidents that shocked me the most was when I was already grown. I was on a trip to Haiti. This old man approached me in a movie theater and told me I was such a 'beautiful black woman' and I looked at him like wtf because he was just a light skinned black man to me but I guess he considered himself a "mulatto".
