Watching CNN’s “Who’s Black in America” and a 7 yr old said she’s ugly because she has dark skin and wants to be light. Ughh. That broke my heart.
Colorism is the devil!
Jason Chu- Colorblind (Response to media racism/racebending)
*finger snaps* Wow this is amazing. I’m not Asian, as you can see lol, but that doesn’t mean I can’t understand where is he coming from. I feel that any POC (person of color) can relate to this spoken word.
The last line was powerful. “Because colorblind is another way to say we don’t care”.
her voice is absolutely beautiful!!
Why when someone refers to a genre that black people dominate in, they always have to put “black” in front of it. Like Black music, Black comedy, Black dancing. I mean music is music dance is dance and comedy is comedy.
“Why you talk so white?”
“I sure as hell talk white, because English is a white language..
Best believe there wasnt a black person at the meeting when the british made up english or any of the so called “romance” languages, and if there were..they were probably serving sandwiches because we are talking about the same people who called us savages.
So every time, every time we speak english, we talk white..
But its not your fault no, I blame those boats, I blame the coast, hell, I blame the tide, I blame the sea for not picking a side…”
Speak that truth.
I will never understand how they think this is funny. I like Kpop but some of them need to need to educate themselves on Black culture (well everybody needs too), especially since they admire and emaculate our music so much.
