Yeah. I feel kinda bad because I'm more attracted to light skin black girls than anyone else, but I know that's kinda cruel to darker skinned black girls.

The whole point of colorism is divide and conquer already.

The term light skin privilege is just stupid and inaccurate.

Darker skinned men, especially in African American communities benefit more than light skin men

While it's the opposite and more serve for African American women

I like how, for once, Mal_Fet actually admitted he was wrong, but only because it put the black community at fault.

At least he admitted he was wrong and didn't know.

1.) It's always been a thing. Label or not. Regardless of what you call it(Colorism, privilege), it's always been a problem.

Labeling it privilege is always a problem. The word privilege causes resentment, jealously and otherism. Trying to make this a thing is always going to cause infighting. You can acknowledge it exists but trying to guilt others for it is not a good idea.

2.) It's not exclusive to the black population but occurs in cultures all over the world. Asian, latin america, especially the middle east.

Can you imagine a white person talking to an SJW and saying "I don't have white privilege, because I'm not attractive"

this doesn't make sense to me as a response so you would need to clarify, they aren't directly related, there are just the noted privileges of being white and also the noted privilege of being attractive and light-skinned (for its closer proximity to whiteness) making it more likely to be pushed in the media than that of your also attractive but darker counterparts
but idrc to continue down that path without specifics since, outside of modeling and such, there are also larger tangential factors at work on the media's push that vary (say acting ability, music, etc)

but I also think all of the abrasive arguments over 'privilege' stem from a largely understandable but, in this case, silly resistance to labeling
I don't believe being told to recognize you are privileged is necessarily an attempt to brand you away from your individuality, or to get you to Harrison Bergeron limit yourself, or to say you are evil for it, or anything similarly sinister, but rather is just the label saying what it means, being told or seeing for yourself "I am not X so it is likely I never experience Y" and having the trends of that applied to groups/communities at large

and I am fairly vocal with my distaste for caricaturing and there are no doubt people who group the 'privileged' negatively or make assumptions prior to seeing the outliers and exceptions, but the fighting that stems from the appearance of this word are just overboard reactions in the opposite direction and an article like this seems harmless at its worst

Shit color-ism exists in literally every ethnic group except Caucasians.


Nope, colorism exists among white people as well. Just look at the recent Mass Effect Andromeda controversy. Couldn't make Nordic pale white skinned characters so this became "YOU CAN'T MAKE WHITE CHARACTERS!" despite every other shade of white people being available in the CC. As an Italian, that was total bullshit to me.


That's not what colorism is about GP.

Yeah and don't tell me Indians don't lighten their skin so they can look more like their Iranian sisters (who break their noses so they can look like their sisters in Southern Europe)

Oh, just stop judging people based off their skin color? Just stop identity politics? Why don't I strap on my tolerance helmet and squeeze down into an acceptance cannon and fire off into diversity land, where minorities grow on multiculturalism?!

Well Martin Luther King did dream that people would try to see deeper than just the skin. Ironically privilege puts the focus on superficial qualities where its proponents don't try to judge people by deeper characteristics.

There's a great Jordan Peterson video out there where he talks about this. Basically, leftism is self-cannibalizing because you can divide society into all these different types of groups indefinitely. There's always someone who is "oppressed" or "privileged" if you look harder enough.

Clearly, being born with lighter skin was not something that I chose (just as being born white was not something those benefiting from white privilege chose), but I must recognize how I am privileged within my own community of folks.


what kind of lunatic, marbles-in-the-ass mentality is this? How the hell do people get like this?


By deifying some bizarre type of Marxist-socialist third wave feminist horseshit about everything being unfair, everything being oppressive, etc.

Are you referring to that time he got butthurt after he said I only met 2/3 of the party I represent, being white and male but not wealthy, and then I pointed out that 2/3 still beat him being 1/2 black?
