Tamara « 1ne Drop


“I hear the Black girl’s cry and the White girl’s cry and the Black man’s cry and the White man’s cry, but it’s very seldom that you hear the cries of people who are mixed up like me. Seldom that you really hear what we go through. I just don’t feel like there’s a space for us. The field slave has a right to be angry at the house slave because they’re thinking ‘We sweating and you in there working in the house.’ But does the field slave understand what the house slave is going through? She’s being raped. She’s a product of rape. Maybe she doesn’t want to be who she is. Maybe she doesn’t want to take care of Massa every minute of the day. Maybe she’d prefer to be a field slave and dark skinned as opposed to being light skinned and in the house. But you wouldn’t know because you didn’t bother to ask. So when I go somewhere and people have their issues with me, I’m like ‘You are the ones creating an issue.’ And when we as a people keep doing that, we keep creating a cycle that’s really negative.”Tamara Thomas

    ALSO …. here is a brief COMMENTARY on … the constant
    misapplication of the racist ‘One-Drop Rule’ ** (to the
    people who are of any part-Black / Mixed-Race Lineage):

    [** PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE FACT THAT :
    The racist ‘one-drop’ “rule” was made ‘illegal’ in the U.S. in
    1967 by the U.S. Supreme Court via the ‘Loving vs. VA’ case
    (i.e. The ‘Loving’ case) – where the U.S. Supreme Court ruled …
    — 1) All ‘Anti-Miscegenation’ Laws found throughout the U.S.;
    — 2) The racist ‘VA Racial Integrity Act’ (upon which most
    of the anti-miscegenation ‘laws’ were founded); and
    — 3) The (‘black-lineage mocking’ and exceedingly) racist
    ‘One-Drop Rule’ (upon which the ‘Act’ was based.)
    … as being ‘UN-Constitutional’ (i.e. illegal, banned, etc.).]
    .
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    .
    THE FACTS are as follows:

    1) It is often a surprise for people to learn that, in reality, there
    is actually No Such Thing As a “Light Skinned Black” person.

    2) Very few people seem to be aware of the fact that the term
    “Light Skinned Black” is really nothing more than a racist
    oxymoron created by Racial Supremacists in an effort to
    forcibly deny those Mixed-Race individuals, who are of
    a Multi-Generational Multiracially-Mixed (MGM-Mixed)
    lineage, the right to fully embrace and to also received
    public support in choosing to acknowledge the truth
    regarding their full ancestral heritage and lineage.

    3) The people who have been slapped with the false label and
    oxymoronic misnomer of “Light Skinned Black” person are simply
    Mixed-Race individuals — who are from families that have been
    CONTINUALLY Mixed-Race THROUGHOUT multiple generations.

    4) Seeing that every other Mixed-Race group is allowed the dignity
    of receiving support in having itself referred to by the term that
    it most prefers – the question becomes “Why should the
    situation be any different for those Mixed-Race
    individuals who are of an Multi-Generational
    Multiracially-Mixed (MGM-Mixed) lineage?”.

    5) If an MGM-Mixed individual would like to be referred to by the
    term ‘Mixed-Race’ (which is what they actually are) rather than by
    that of “Light-Skinned Black“ (a term, which, once again, has the
    racist-origin of being nothing more than an oxymoronic-phrase that
    was both created and coined by Racial Supremacists in an effort to
    try to deny these Mixed-Race people their right to and support in
    publicly acknowledging and also embracing their FULL-Lineage)
    there is no reason that they (like every other group on the planet
    – whether these groups are Mixed-Race or not) should not be
    allowed the right to choose the term that society uses in referring
    to them (and to have their full-lineage acknowledged within that term).
