Colorism has not been a mainstream issue to discuss.  Society rather ignores the issue, or pretends that colorism is not relevant because it’s an internal issue.  Society  have planted the seed of self-hatred by developing structural racism within the black community, but at some point people need to develop self-love and acceptance. The issue exists because people allow it to still flourish by placing self-hatred within themselves and other people.  Continue reading “Declaring My Skin Tone Within the African American Community: Part 2”
