My mom is going to tell me Tracee Ellis Ross on her new show is going to say, “My butt and hair proves I’m black,” after someone says something along the lines of not being “all that black” or something like that. This show caled Black-Ish. But momma! I’m not praising a light-skinned woman just because she has an ass and loose curly hair! As if we don’t praise redbones for being “thick” but tell dark-skinned girls to cover up their asses unless we want to exploit them for music videos while we can show every profile of the “redbone” in a video. So I am not moved because some light-skinned, mixed race black woman who fits into the standard of “Black Beauty” has an ass, which she will be praised for it because she’s “light-skint but still has remnants of black features such as an ass and kind of kinky hair.” Try again.And I will say this. I don’t care if you don’t feel like you’re “black enough!” I and others had to deal with being “too black” and trying not to be “black enough,” and you mad because you don’t fit into the definition of anti-blackness? That’s like saying, “I’m not bad enough,” when your parent punishes your sibling more than they punish you. I mean, why would you want to be “black enough” to be discriminated against?
All I ask is for when other poc and black people call out white people, please do not utilize ableism and “jokes” about rape, incest, child abuse, suicide, or anything problematic as a means of a “smackdown” or “clapback.” If you cannot do that, I am concerned about your own mentality on certain social isms besides race.
Remember when Mark Salling said he was into women of color, and this white girl made a rant about how she was “hurt” that the guy of her dreams didn’t find her beautiful? I was DYING!!! She made a whole rant about this actor straight up saying he was into woc, and she said it hurt her self-esteem. Please, there are plenty of white male celebrities you can picture yourself with while us black girls can’t even get a good looking black man on the screen with another black (dark-skinned) girl. He has to be paired with a white or light-skinned nblkwoc.
So you mean to tell me there is a movie about a woman who can use more than 10 percent of her brainpower, and she is a white blonde woman? COME ON!!!!
