  • TEACH OUR BLACK CHILDREN TO LOVE THEIR AFRICAN FEATURES.🤴🏿🤴🏾👸🏿👸🏾🖤💚❤🖤💚❤✊🏿
..
Europeans created colorism. It is us Black People who need to put on END to Colorism. It starts with every black household teaching our black children about their African Roots. 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤
"The Black skin is not a badge of shame, but rather a glorious symbol of national greatness." -Marcus Garvey 🖤💚❤🖤💚❤🖤💚❤🖤💚❤🖤💚❤🖤
..
Definition of Colorism: A practice of discrimination by which those with lighter skin and have European features are treated more favorably than those with darker skin. It upholds white standards of beauty and benefits white people in the institutions of oppression against black people.
..
History of Colorism - Slavery: Slaves with lighter skin are assigned domestic tasks while slaves with darker skin were forced to work outside in the fields, doing much more grueling tasks. Lighter-skinned slaves were favored because they were often the product of a slave owner raping a slave, thus creating a lighter-skinned child.
..
 Colorism is a persistent problem for the black race in the USA, the Caribbean, Europe, etc. In the USA and Caribbean colorism, or skin color stratification, is a process that privileges light‐skinned people of color over dark in areas such as income, education, housing, and the marriage market. Research has shown that light‐skinned people have advantages in these areas. Dark-skinned people of color are typically regarded as more ethnically authentic or legitimate than light‐skinned people. While the light-skinned and European features are known to be BEAUTIFUL. Colorism stemmed from the larger system of racism in the USA and around the world. The color complex is also exported around the globe, in part through US media images, and helps to sustain the multibillion‐dollar skin bleaching and cosmetic surgery industries.

  • On this day June 19th slavery was abolished in AMERICA. Slavery may have ended in America but many are still currently enslaved.The white man wants you to believe that slavery ended but they came right back to Africa and enslaved Africans on their own soil AFTER THE FACT (colonization). Free your mind and educate yourself! Rip to all the African and African American slaves who never lived a free life. Perseverance and hope to all of the Africans who are still currently enslaved till this day. Remember to be grateful for your freedom and do not take it for granted. I pray that all of my ancestors who did not live a free life are resting in perfect peace. I also pray your ancestors who were slaves are resting peacefully as well. Never feel like your African features are less than. Your wide nose, black skin, big eyes, kinky hair, and full lips are to die for. Also never forget that we are our ancestors greatest and biggest dreams🤎.
