OK, this was so obvious I'm not sure why I overlooked it. Yes, her opening comments suggest the one part of her that looks obviously black is the one
part she hates, which is insulting to blacks and to herself.
I agree that different things can get a person rejected (from any community). I just think it's universally true that ppl w/mostly white phenotypes (liked that mixed chick) tend to get met w/resistance by a portion
of the black community (accepted by others though). That said, there are some biracial people who reject people in the black community also w/out any provocation. It can work both ways.
Couldn't agree more. Each case is different and circumstances can be complex. That said, w/or without connections, certain people are more likely to get away w/more things on average
based on a certain phenotype and/or skin color IMO. Or that's been my observation.
I think you're right, in terms of the criminal justice system, males tend to get targeted more. That said, I think minority women have their own disadvantages; I think we women in general have certain disadvantages too. In terms of light skin advantage, you make a good point: if someone isn't in a certain income bracket (or speaks with nonstop ebonics, etc.), it results in a political loss.
