I honestly can’t think of anything to say right now, other than this is absolutely heartbreaking and everyone needs to see it.
reblogging again because it’s been a while since i’ve seen this on my dash.
Oh this hurts my heart
Rise dark girls.
This is so heartbreaking.
Okay.. seriously though I have a very reddish complexion, yes I’m white but when I was younger and even now I get made fun of for how red my skin always is but do you see me making a pity video? Hell no, build a bridge and get over it…
Okay, for one, this was not about you. This was not about you. This was not about you.
As a white woman, you experience absolutely no oppression due to the color of your skin, but particularly not for the shade of your skin. This was not even about white women, so sit your ass down. This was about Black women, and colorism applies with communities of color - particularly affecting women of color.
Colorism has tangible effects on darker skinned Black women - ranging from damaging self-esteem to earning less money. So seriously, don’t comment on something and compare it to your own life when you don’t know what the fuck you’re talking about.
oh my god i’m choking at the red skin comment… i have that problem too but the last time i checked that wasn’t linked to hundreds of years of racism and oppression, i’m just white as hell!
