There is nothing better than a bag full of dark chocolate Hershey's kisses
I know that this happened last week and all but I have been busy doing other shit and I have not had time to come here and write about it. Matter of fact this is the first time in about 2 weeks that I have felt like even looking at my blog, so please forgive me for being all late with this.
We as Black people in America often get mad over the wrong shit. We get all in an uproar over some shit that a white person says or another Black person says that we all know is based on facts, but because someone decides to talk about it in a public manner, we call for "apologies," sanctions, firings or resignations.
I am talking about Harry Reid.
If you are Black in this country, then you know the difference between light and dark skinned people.
I am dark skinned and I used to hate my skin color.
I used to sit in the tub when I was little and scrub my skin with a brillo pad because I hated being dark.
The girls in my school did not even look at me because I was considered "too black" for them. But then they all had problems when I said fuck em and starting dating latinas.
I was told by members of my family that I would never be nothing because I was Black and ugly.
So everythig that Harry Reid said about Obama having a shot at the presidency because he is light skinned, is true. He might have said it in a fucked up way, but it is true. If I decided to run for the Presidency, I would not stand a chance because I would have to change everythig about who I am as a person in order for the masses (white people) to accept me.
And I couldn't/wouldn't do that.
I have been told by people at my job that when I first started working for my company that they thought I was a Black militant. All because I spoke my mind, I have kept a shine head for years and I know how to carry an intelligent conversation with the White bosses.
I was told by a Mexican dude that the only thing he was afraid of was a big, Black, Bald man.
I fit all those catagories. I am 6'2, I weigh 220 pounds, I am dark skinned and like I said, I have kept a shine head for years.
Now if I was born light skinned, would I have these sterotypes placed on me?
I doubt it. I would be considered a "credit to my race" and handsome and all that "white" shit.
Have none of you ever noticed that whenever a white dude says he would date a Black woman it is always the Halle Berry looking women and not the Gabrielle Union looking women?
Or if White women talk about Black men it is always the Shamar Moore looking niggas and not the Don Cheadle looking dudes?
It is very fucked up, but it is America.
I love my dark skin now. I would not want to be anything else. Matter of fact I wish I could get darker. I am one sexy-ass dark creamy chocoloate ass Negro.
And to all the people that consider me ugly, uneducated, thuggish and a "Black militant" just because my African/Haitain roots are pure and untainted, remember the old saying, Chocolate melts in your mouth bitches, not in your hand.
In other words, in "negro dialect", you can eat a big black dick bitches.
Yeah I said it.
