    Black People : Light Skinned vs. Dark Skinned...

    You've got that right... ...and it is going to ALWAYS be about color, sad to say! See, the reality is...no matter HOW far we progress, it will be about color. We--as Black people--are going to be 'judged' by others based on color...not Character. When we can accept each other for our...

    Black People : The Jayson Blair / New York Times Affair

    I've always found it funny.... ....that, as a journalist, the news industry/media has the most abysmal hiring record regarding people of color, yet people of color are the leading consumers of television, radio, and print media. They have (meaning the media) documented this yearly...while at...
