Black America (Still) Has a Problem With Dark Skinned Women

Black America (Still) Has a Problem With Dark Skinned Women

Having been born and bathed in America’s White supremacist culture, its not surprising that we have inherited the same anti-Black sentiments that have been used to oppress us. But we cannot simply accept this and believe that because we are part of a marginalised group that we cannot be perpetrators of painful racist rhetoric. Black people cannot be content to challenge racism out there if we fail to do our own internal, anti-racism work.
