Listen Siblings, I come in peace,
“[We] are never alone: not in body, not in mind, not in spirit.” — Onitaset Kumat
Shadeism is a real-life affliction that African people are dealt. It’s the Occidental in our mind. We need a space to learn to think properly about our culture. This space is the African Blood Siblings Community Center. Write the ABS to help build. Inaction has consequences.
Dark Girls: Official Preview
Commented on by Onitaset Kumat
I intend to write another script for the television show, dealing with the “Willie Lynch letter.” I am inspired to by another blogger I read which highlighted this film, “Dark Girls,” that was, until yesterday, unknown to me. This film appears to address shadeism, but regrettably addresses it in the same manner of “Willie Lynch”–on myth. I intend to write a post on the topic, but before posting that I should write two things. Firstly shadeism is ancient: That’s the Hindu Religion! Secondly, shadeism in America less has to do with slavery and more post-slavery, namely the post that I put up on W. E. B. Du Bois. I will say one reason now as to why it is important to set the record straight: Slavery is by-the-by regarded as ‘yesterday’ amongst our people, whereas the NAACP is arguably ‘a today’; if we truly wish to address shadeism let’s at least have a tangible ‘today’ foe rather than a mythical, unreachable ‘yesterday’ foe.
To those interested in the film, here’s the website for it, perhaps you can write us an article:
