Please feel free to weigh in on this ever arising issue: Are dark skinned people second rate citizens? I ask this because blacks have failed to support each other. Instead they seem to "side" with the lighter complexioned blacks, making darker complexioned brothers and sisters feel "left out. They seem to be treated unfairly and not taken seriously in their endeavours. The bottom line is, the closer to "white" your skin the better? Hardly! I think of Micheal Jackson, the way he continuously bleached his skin in order to "feel better" about himself and so many other stars who you have to look at twice before you know who they are they have turned so light. Is light skin a ticket to immediate success or (in MJ's case, failure)?
