Sorry You’re Not Black Enough Time and time again I see posts all over social media about black vs whites, light skinned vs dark skinned, among a slew of other issues surrounding race. However, black people don’t think they can be racist towards their own kind and in doing so, a term such as colorism […]Read More Sorry You’re Not Black Enough
This entry may take you for a loop because it took me a while to gather my thoughts so I could speak with as much clarity as I possibly can. So buckle up as you’re in for a treat.
