Yes, White people STARTED it .. some 300 years ago.
The problem is Black people are the ones that keep it ALIVE and that’s why I don’t think it will ever change.
Otherwise, the first Black child born out of that system would have been told her skin was beautiful whether it was dark or light and the little boys would have been taught that all Black girls were pretty regardless of their color.
Instead many Black mothers treat their dark daughters badly like 'I'll slap the Black off you' or 'take your nappy head out of here' .. things like that. Or they out and out tell them they are ugly because they are dark and tell the light kids they are nice looking because they are light. Then of course the little boys pick this up and they only want to date light girls and the system goes on and on generation after generation. :(
This behavior IN THE BLACK FAMILY is the fault of the Black people themselves - not the White people.
If can't be that EVERYTHING that is wrong in the Black community is the responsibility of the White people because those slave owners died a long time ago and the White people today are not gonna come into a Black family’s home every day and help undo this damage in every interaction that goes on in the house. DUH! No, that’s up to us.
Because it's the family that defines your worth in life - not the TV or the movies. :( Otherwise why is that people grow up thinking it's okay to have sex at 13, get pregnant and smoke pot and end up on welfare?
If they watched TV .. they would see there are people that are studying hard, graduating, if they have sex ... it is responsible sex so they don't get pregnant and then they go off to college and major in Nursing and get job! So why don't all this messed up kids ... just watch TV and learn how to conduct themselves.
No, because they are learning that bad behaviour from the family.
Sometimes you hear about people that have some major handicap ... like no legs, but they go off to college and have a successful life. Why? They will always say 'Because my parents told me I could be anyone I wanted to be'. Duh! See ... it's the family.
That's what is missing in a lot of Black families.
I think Black people keep pointing the finger at White people so they can disavow themselves of any responsibility for treating other Black people like S*** based on their skin color.
That is why I think Black folks are doomed to repeat this system forever because they are unable to TAKE RESPONSIBILTY for keeping the system in place.
I am forever THANKFUL that my parents did not do this is my family but my cousins where COMPLETELY overcome with this system. I didn't understand what was going on as a child ... but when I grew up .. that's when it all came together and realized what they were doing.
and what a f**** up mess those dark girls turned out to be.
