Let’s get out the message to every white supremacist, to every member of the Ku Klux Klan, to every human who ever thought that light skin was “better than” dark skin : In our heart of hearts, at the core of our humanity, we are all Black. Humans started in Africa and the only reason humans “lost” their good skin coloring is that they moved away from the sunnier climate and Nature lightened their skin so it could absorb more of the necessary sun’s rays.
We create this artificial distinction between White and Colored. Even there we are deliberately ignorant. The opposite of “colored” is not “white” — the opposite of colored is colorless. To be colorless is not normal, not healthy, not natural.
“White” skin is NOT the norm, is certainly not superior, and is not necessarily attractive, as we know because “white” people do everything in their power to color their skin : makeup, suntan, even insanely dangerous tanning beds. They’ll do virtually anything to get rid of their white skin.
Why is it that we don’t celebrate our dark heritage? We all come from Africa where emerging human intelligence created astronomy, mathematics, language, art. That’s much better than hatred, guns, and violence. Maybe, instead of hiding under hoods, the KKK needs to spend more time in the sun, getting back their natural color.
