so i ended up watching the last hour of the “light girls” doc on own.
the first half got dvdr’d.
celeb apprentice was on.
anyway i only have this to say about it…
i felt the documentary,
from what i saw,
touched on a lot of various aspects of being “light skinned-ed”.
“being considered a trophy”
“getting ahead in the life”
“being desirable to wolves”
“when you close to white; you will always be right”
i personally respected those who were honest.
the ones who said they used their light skinned-ed ness to their advantage.
the whole “woe is me/ive been bullied because i’m light” schtick…
“i didn’t see anyone who looked like me on television…”
why do people need validation with someone on tv?
see thats the first problem.
that person could be a self hating doofus,
but it helps they’re on television.
that makes it okay for self esteem purposes.
not to be heartless also,
but i feel darker skinned-ed vixens have more of a struggle in this world.
i moreso sympathize with them.
in this social media mud pit we live in,
being a “long haired thick redbone” will get you farther in a ny minute.
at the end of the day,
regardless of what complexion you are,
you will still experience racism and a pineapple will cheat on you.
people will still be nasty.
being light doesn’t guarantee a good life.
it means you have more bullshit to deal with.
hell they used kobe bryant and kanye west as examples.
well if we want to be technical,
kobe cheated on conchita with an basic snow bunny,
and if we want to be technical,
kanye is in an alleged relationship with a man.
