COLORISM, TRUTH, AND BLACK UNITY

Feeling Rebloggy

If we really care about Black unity we will focus on the topics that divide us and yes, colorism is one of them.
If you ignore colorism you are a colorist.

If you say it doesn’t exist regardless of the evidence you are a colorist.

If you support people who promote colorism you are a colorist.

If you see it happening and do nothing to stop it, you are a colorist.

If you are silent about it you are complicit and you are a colorist.
