None of this shit is funny.
All of this is self hate.
All of this is dehumanizing.
All of this is foolish ignorance.
This is not only disgusting, but appalling as well; exactly how can we succeed as a community when you put down the very women who bring you up?
These “men” are children.
If you do not support black women, you do not support black power. Black power is not just for black men. If you do not support black women.. Congratulations! You have ‘slave mentality’.
The hatred of black women is taught by the white oppressor, older generations of black men, the media, and at some times other black women. As a whole, we cannot grow as a community if you HATE more then half of it.
Often when colorism is discussed in the black community, men and some women attribute darker skin as manly and attach racial slurs (non reclaim) to them.
Having malice towards darker skin does not make you above any person, and just to set the record straight: DATING, MARRYING, or FUCKING a white woman does not make you closer to the white man. You are black, that is who you are and that is who you will be, that is your identifier. NO MATTER where you will go you are black. You ancestors and your grandparents fought for the right to love one another.
So let me ask you this:
Is your mother an ugly monkey?
Is your sister an illiterate darkie?
Is your DAUGHTER, with skin the color of gold tier melanin UNWORTHY of human love and emotion? Should she be subject to the hate you spew from you ignorant lips? Are her tears useless, because she inherited YOUR skin?
For those who participate in such behavior, what is your skin tone? 9/10 they are as dark if not darker then the women they belittle.
This ignorance has got to STOP, if not for our current generation…. Then the next.

Danielle Brooks & Samira Wiley on Celebrity Girl Crushes
"Here are women who sing about sex. Sexuality. Contemporary womanhood. Wholeness. Arrival. […] The record dismantles the idea that marriage, commitment, or monogamy ruins one’s sex life. It challenges the notion that a woman’s life should be lead in complete service to her child. This album is widely successful because it makes women feel good about themselves. I can see how that might be confusing for some […] Detractors decried the album’s explicit content in typical "Won’t someone think of the children?" form, seemingly forgetting that the singer is 32 and under no obligation to parent any child but her own. BEYONCÉ introduces Knowles as a sexual being, not a being sexualized by industry. She communicates her proclivities in her own certain terms. And yes, that may sometimes involve a duration on her knees. No, you may not watch." - From Janet To Beyoncé: Why It Matters When Black Women Sing About Sexuality
