This is the most heartbreakingly true thing I’ve seen in a while. Self-hate is a hell of a drug. Thank you, slave psychology.
I couldn’t even get through the whole thing. I almost cried. This light skin vs. dark skin thing will never sit right with me. EVER. It’s not just white culture degrading us. It’s not just men degrading us. We degrade ourselves, our daughters, our friends. So sad.
