At least half of people’s opinions/complaints about light-skinned Black women do not apply to me. I feel fairly confident saying that because I make it a point to learn from the people around me and not repeat their mistakes. Since the energies in the cosmos are making it so I can’t seem to get out a long, long ranting post for some reason defending myself against browner Black people’s assumptions about my character based off my skin tone, I’ll leave it at that.

We need dialogue, and I can’t show you that I understand you and you can’t see that I do while you’re using your bad experiences with most light-skinned people to validate your desire to spit in my face.
