Mo fiya pon dem bom*****s...
I'm not rastafari, but would love to learn mo abt it. I'm dark skinned and have a slim built (it's my genes). People (light-skinned and heavy built) always make fun of me. I've come to the realization that it's part of life that people will talk regardless of how you look. But my problem is that we use eurocentric standards to discriminate.
I'm always asked, why dont you wear make-up to show you're a woman or appreciate yourself. And this includes, everything from the hottest guys, latest trends, fake hair, nails - the list is endless. We know that.
I'm proud to be African and dark-skinned. I think the best gift by far from the Most High Him/Herself.
It aint easy being who we ought to be, stay true to thyself.
I do not think its fair since I would describe my skin colour
Skin color has always been a major problem
, since we know what...But now we are dealing with colorism
It was never meant to be that way, but it is. Those people are just as ignorant as their white-couterparts. Which hurts even more...can you imagine is we said that no light-skinned, black (African) person could be follow the Rastafari movement?
Our conscienceness is built upon the current supremist system, therefore it is of vital importance we be careful how we as (African) people relate to one another. i.e. Our conscienceness is not the same as our forefathers' one, though it is one way.
