    Everyone arrives at different places of self-realization at different times. I honestly think she will become more informed after the backlash.

    I can remember a time when I thought colour-blindness was a good thing, and that wasn't too long ago. It took an Indigenous studies class (and some time) to realize what GAN was saying about erasure and denial of existent inequality.

    So yes, these things take time. Coming to any understanding of the world that is at odds with the mainstream "fake kumbaya" will take time, as well as spaces/people in our lives that facilitate new ways of understanding.

    Black
    American
    African-American
    ☐ Black-American



    On a side note, my cousins in Seattle once explained to me that "Black-American" is more appropriately used by those who have known African immigrant ancestry like them (Somalian-American for example) as opposed to African-American. Is that necessarily true?

    Hyphenated identities be crazy.

    Am I the only one who finds the comments of non-blacks concerning this matter kind of irritating?

    So.... Raven went from being colorless to wanting some color.

    OMG! I was wondering where her colour went! Not sure I believe the tan story though. She wasn't that pale when she was a kid. She looks a bit vampire-esque in that last picture. new makeup style no-one told me about? (or maybe it's just the same ol' "light is pretty" style and we're calling it something new now so we're going with vampire-esque?)
    and since i love how many gifs are bein used on this thread, my reaction to the tan story in gif form:
