yall know darn well, if you pay close enough attention to black men's conversations, the topic of discrimination, victimization etc. usually always centers around their plight and their plight only. when they complain about the black struggle against "the man", the black struggle equals the black man's struggle. not ours. 

the racism black women face is usually dismissed as minor and/or paranoia. there's even an undertone of  victim blaming (black women) when these type of discussions are had. hell, a lot of black men even believe that we are willing pawns in white supremacy; in cahoots with the white man to destroy the black community (welfare taking the place of men in the homes bullsh*t for example).  

their participation in our plight is residual. in other words, we reap the rewards by proxy. we don't even factor in until it's time to support them. and we're always there. 

how this ties into the conversation about the light skinned/dark skinned struggle? it ties into the discussion in that it creates a divisive atmosphere within the black community. there shouldn't be light skin/dark skin divide between us. but it is sustained when some black men (and some when but they aren't usually as brazen about it) ascribe positive characteristics to women who look closer to white, negative characteristics to darker women when we're all in this fight together.

if they don't consider this fight one that we should are partake in as i mentioned before (black women and men together), they contribute to to the fracture. makes us mere pawns in their game perhaps.

Sandy and PG I'm glad I'm not the only one who never believes these affirmations from Becky.  I usually take ppl at their word so I thought maybe I just don't like her font.   But um yeah, she lyin'
