Black men against colorism (yes, they do exist)

So it may be apparent now that I have an obsession with raw YouTube content creators, specifically those talking about taboo subjects… and I realised this year that COLORISM is one of those subjects within Black circles. I’ve watched a lot of videos on this topic and in my search for people – and specifically Black men – who genuinely “get it” (get why tackling this issue is a fundamental part of decolonising one’s mind and uprooting white supremacy) I found this American brother’s video on the subject.

He makes excellent and genuinely nuanced points in this 14 minute video (I know the title of the video may give the false impression that he won’t, but he does):
