REMEMBER, AFRICA HAS BEEN COLONIAL RULE AND ALL OF US, PEOPLE OF COLOR (IRRESPECTIVE OF WHAT SHADE) ARE UNDER THE THUMB ALL OF GLOBAL WHITE SUPREMACY AND WHITE RULE WHICH PERMEATES ALL FACETS OF OUR LIVES. SO LISTENING TO HER ACT (SHE SEEMS MORE AWARE THAN SHE EXHIBITS) AS THOUGH WHITE RULE HAS ZERO TO DO WITH PERFECTLY BEAUTIFUL,BLACK AFRICAN WOMAN TO LIGHTEN THEIR SKIN, THE DEEP SEATED REASON IS THAT THEY IDENTIFY WITH THE WHITE MASTER’S SKIN, BUT THAT DOES NOT FIX THE MINDSET OF THESE INDIVIDUALS, FOR YOU HAVE TO BE CHANGED FROM THE INSIDE OUT, NOT VICE VERSA. AND THE LADY JUST CRAWFISHED ALL OF THE WAY AND THERE IS A REASON THAT SHE STICKS TO HER CAPTITALISTIC, CAUCASIAN VIEW…THE ALL MIGHTY DOLLAR…WHICH OUR LORD AND SAVIOR SAYS IS THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL AND IT MAKES HER LIE,M BUT HER MONEY IS HER COMFORT, FOR ANYTIME YOU EQUATE CHANGING ONE’S SKIN COLOR TO CHANGING A HAIR STYLE OR WANTING TO CHANGE SOMETHING ELSE IS LUDICROUS.
