In the latest installment of the "What the hell is wrong with us?" series, a DJ/promoter in Detroit apparently thought it would be a good idea to host a party where "light skinned" women received free admission. At no suprise, this idea was met with opposition on all fronts.
Honestly, I don't know where to start with this one. This is clearly another sad example of how the mentalities that were shaped during slavery (particularly with the conflict between house slaves and field slaves) have once again managed to rise to the 21st century surface. Further evidence that self-hatred and ignorance didn't end just because slavery did.
Hat tip to my big sis Robin for this article.
