C: Look, if a guy says that his favourite black women are Zendaya, Imaan Hammam, Rhianna, Nicki Minaj or Beyonce then it means that he only dates lightskins or only non black women & uses these women to compromise for his colourism. Lmaoo not to reach and nothing agaisnt these women but it’s just a strange pattern that I noticed 😂😂😂
You have ever experienced, witnessed, felt Colorism in the African American community
You have ever been picked last in comparison to your light skinned counter parts
You are brown skin or dark skin and have family members or friends who are light skinned
Any of the people mentioned above receive preferential treatment in some way based SOLELY on the fact they are lighter: better job opportunities, love interests, friends, etc.
You think Colorism, on both sides of the spectrum are real.
You are tired of people pretending it’s not a thing and ignoring it
(This is NOTHING, against my lighter brother’s and sister, I love you ALL, but I feel this needs some light shed onto it for those over privileged few who think because they haven’t seen or witnessed it, it doesn’t exist.)
