Not true! Statistics shows that light-skinned Black people are more likely to marry, get employment, and get raises, among other things. They are also statistically more likely to get a lower sentence than dark-skinned Black people who commit the same crime.
…anyone who relies on Statistics as hard truths is an idiot! You never know how many people are involved in polls or surveys, what authority or intent a survey has.
Maybe you’re better off not trying to be “black” at all.
…Black may have been adopted as a counter to White and an expression of pride rather than the negativity that society attaches to the color, but it is still a color cast term that is really PERSONAL. Blackness is not a tangible thing…it is different with every one.
… and when you start talking about your Blackness being hard or what ever, you bring negativity on yourself. You wouldn’t take kindly to a European person talking about how good it is to be White and how hard their White is. You just sound really ignorant!
