Sam’s lightskin privilege effects her romantic life. Coco knows none of the white guys will take her home to meet their parents then she has struggles to get black men to respect her. Joelle struggling to get a black man to see her. Sam’s lightskiness makes her appetizing to black men and whiteness.
Sam is only woke when she’s talk about her disadvantages but not her privileges. Even her slick comment about Coco needing money for her hair when she was wearing her natural 4C hair has me tight.
The dynamic between Sam the lightskin girl who is so “woke” and Coco the darkskin girl dealing with internalized racism I hope gets the nuances it deserves. Let me say it again for you baby hair bishes it easier to love your curly hair and lightskin because of colorism while dark skin kinky hair women have a harder road.
