it blows my mind that people still act like colorism doesn't exist and that people choose to act ignorant as to why, on some level, we need documentaries like this. i know that it must feel like overkill to some people. that's cool, do what i did, don't watch it. 

but it's so worth it if it reaches even just little girl or even if it reaches a not so little girl like my mom. to tell them that they're not alone, beautiful, they the way they feel is valid and people (let alone their OWN PEOPLE) have no right to try and make them feel less than-- that's worth its weight in gold.

i hope that it opened some eyes, opened some minds and did some good where it could. 
Girl! I have to pull out the stats all the time because every time I'm in a talk about colorism someone will either say 1. "It's not that bad ya'll need to love yourself" or 2. "Im light skinned and was bullied by a dark girl once in first grade. What about my problems?"

Im happy for people who got something out of that moive. Sometimes it's good because I think it helps people realize that society is the problem not them.

But Im  def gonna take mixers advice and go to the doctor soon. Apparently what Im having is a mild allergic reaction and it could get worse. somewhat scared.

the former: i wonder if black people know how like white people they sound when they say sh!t like that.  

and i agree with the latter. i just want it to be better for even one person and i'd be happy with that. and mos def society is a problem. it just astounds me that blacks wanna act like the issue is a dead horse when the only reason we have to beat it so often is because we refuse to learn and grow from the history.
