I do realize that racism does unfortunately exists.<quoted text>
So whack women don't get husbands and boyfriends? Let me get this straight most women out with men are gorgeous???
The rap industry, which is mostly an industry with black males, runs contrary to what you are saying (and I do acknowledge that some of it mentions all skin tones but this was after years of bashing--it also means this is the only industry in entertainment openly spreading a form of hatred, why is skin tone such a big focus?).
Now, as I've said, I have no problems with males and women going after what they want. But denying racism is exactly what this country does on a larger scale. If you don't believe racism exists in the aa community; well, you'd also have to say racism doesn't exist in the larger community/society.
Are you prepared to say this?
thing is, many folks assume that it is the mindset of only one skin tone. when it is across the whole board of skin tones.
one way to combat it. is to teach that it is not right to hate others based on race. to hate someone based on race is based on fear. fear of the unknown. fear of someone coming in to take over something. like property.
humans are like other species. we are territorial, possessive of things, other beings, etc... even those who do not live in 'the box' aka rut(repeating everything over and over). they still have a fear of the unknown.
