I come here with a lifetime of experience, trying to understand what is hard to understand.
Preoccupation with any physical attribute; whether skin color or sexual orientation or height or weight or......does a disservice to your human nature, if one gives said preoccupation precedence over human nature.
Human nature is what it is and is what it has been since humans existed. It is not physical; it is what we all share. I don't understand why people pay so little attention to what we all share and so much attention to physical attributes.
You are black; I am white. So what. I don't get it. My experience has shown me that blacks are preoccupied with their skin color. This web site is just a very small example of this.
Why the preoccupation?
I would say that this is projection on your race's part with you being a part of that race.
It is Europeans who are preoccupied with skin color to the point of using skin color to create economic and social systems of hierarchy the world over.
Remember, we (blacks) didn't land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on us.
