Everything they see or talk about has to be about skin color and they only end up fuccing up their own self worth thinking the world hates them because they are dark when its really not true.
I know that this whole skin color issue comes from our past but I feel like so many black people just get stuck on it instead of moving forward and seeing themselves as more than a dark butt or a light skint trophy.  its just constant thought in the front of their mind instead of just an after thought. 
 
Like, if we always were constantly thinking every second about the idea that white people are #1 in society and "better" than black people then I don't think we would've gotten this far because alot of people would actually start believing it as a fact and give up trying to succeed. But if you push it to the back of your mind and know that you can obtain anything you want then who the hell is gonna stop you? The skin color issue is the same thing. You can continue to depress yourself thinking its true or completely ignore it and get on with your life.

You oversimplified this but that generally happens when black folks engage in a light skinned/dark skinned discussion.

You can't ignore the way the world perceives you. I live my life but I'm aware of the perceptions others have on me. Once again, that's why I educate when I can.

I don't think I should post a picture of my child on her and then her child as well.

I wonder like the fact my mom is light skin she never really understood what I would go through and a brown skin girl. We never really talked about even being black...

Nah don't post a pic, not in the context of this thread at least. Or actually never since trolls will use it to play on what they know now is your insecurity about her looks in random threads to get under your skin.

You should, so that we can fully assess the situation.
