the reality is that even light skinned girls need to care about dark skinned women being represented in the media. light skin doesn’t always beget light skin. you can be bright as hell and get with a dark dude and your daughter comes out with her father’s color and none of yours. then what? like the lack of solidarity sometimes astounds me what kind of cognitive dissonance is that.
From my perspective I’ve only received hate from dark skinned girls for being light skinned. So seems like this solidarity needs to come from not forcing this issue because it alienates both sides from forming a common cause.
