I’m the world’s first “Dark Skin Activist.” fighting darkism and colorism since 1998 and not just talking about it on the internet. I created the phrase “dark skin activist” and “darkism” and have a proven and solid track record of dark skin activism starting back in 1998. Back then no one was speaking about darkism. I know because I searched high and low and only found one person, Kola. I decided to be the change I wanted to see and became the “dark skin activist”. I’ve written 5 books and 2 plays on dark skin and tour around the county giving performances & lectures. I started dark skinned activism back in 1998 when I gave a historic lecture about dark skin discrimination and the Sudanese Model Alek Wek. This was the birth of dark skin activism. History was made when I brought dark skin activism to the internet, inspiring millions.. To book or obtain one of my many books visit darkskinisbeautifulcampaign@gmail.com

    The Root of the Darkism began in Slavery. The mulattos stayed inside, and us cola and brown slaves worked the fields. Subliminally, this creates an aura of faux superiority among the light-skin/mulatto class and inferiority among those outside. Subliminally speaking, having a lighter baby meant more acceptance by Massa and whites in general. The behavior of whitemen towards their mulatto offspring is what really crystalized this insanity. So, in the minds of the darker slaves, having a lighter baby equaled more priviledges from Massa. It was never about the physical. Whitemen raped dark-skinned slaves, so, how can it be about looks? Post-Slavery, the Mulattos passed this Colorism down thru the generations, especially among the females. All of us are familiar with how our Grandmothers, Great-Aunts would inspect the newly arrived babies into the family. Sistagirl would get a thumbs up or down based on the looks and complexion of the baby. We shy away from talking about it, but, this colorism is deeply-engrained in our psyche. I'm a brown-skinned brotha, so, i never had to deal with this baggage as a youth. However, i did notice all the crap darker schoolmates dealt with. The endless jokes…black as night, blacker than tar, black and crispy, on and on. But, so many contradictory angles with Darkism. I read the Autobiography of Malcolm X in the 8th grade. In it, he highlights the behavior of white men and women who would sneak to the other side of town to mingle with and have relations with the darkest brothas and sistas…Not The Lightest! Are whites the ones keeping the bs going, or is it us as African people? In his book, he specifically talked about how whitewomen preferred the darker brothas only. So, the white chick angle has existed a long time. The colorism we see among our people today still is often self-inflicted. The Irony…Women the world over love the Dark-Skinned Blackman, they always have. Yet, the Dark Knight is a foreigner to his own people due in large part to bullshit. Same with the Dark-Skinned Blackwoman, forced to endure foolishness because Massa fucked our heads up, and we never got the poison out of our system. The dark sistas and brothas are not the problem, it's everybody else…Great Convo Sis!
