Thanks to the anon that brought this to my attention.
"Im not chocolate.I’m skin. I’m human. That’s offensive. The most racist statements came from people in interracial relationships. "
This is for you white boys/asian lurking ( but not dating black girls!! ) in the bwwm/ambw calling us chocolate ebony princesses and wearing those corny ambw shirts.
THIS IS A MUST WATCH!!
Firstly a lot of good points are made in this video and I’m just going to sort of appoint them from my point of view.
1. Guy in the yellow says he doesn’t like to be referred to as chocolate and claims it’s racist
I’m black and I don’t think being referred to as chocolate is racist. I mean no one even calls me chocolate my boyfriend will use the word chocolate brown skin when he’s writing something about me. I don’t see it as him being racist. I see it as another simile used to describe the colour of my skin. And since when is chocolate even a bad think. Isn’t it this sweet delicious mouthwatering desert everyone craves and spends so much money on. Everyone come in chocolate. so many flavours of it like black people. so i would take it as a compliment. Black people call themselves all kinds of chocolate, caramel, mocha etc…
2. He then says he sees a white woman as beautiful ONLY when he judges her by “European standards” but not when judging her against “African ones” to some extent I understand what he was saying. after all beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Maybe by that he means in his eyes a white woman is not beautiful but he can appreciate how she would be in the eyes of others.
NONETHELESS, what the hell is he going about African and European standards ? aren’t we all the same but just different skin tones? what makes a white woman beautiful and a black woman beautiful? what are these race standards of beauty that people are judged against ?
3. He also says ONLY liking people of the other race POTENTIALLY says something about how he FEELS about HIMSELF and the woman that RAISED him. Let me just say amen. I completely agree with that. To me if you only like people of the opposite race it makes me wonder how you feel about YOUR race and perhaps yourself. people be PROUD of what you are and who you are. If you can’t find beauty in yourself no one else will. You might say it’s just a preference or all black/white men/women are all the same. NO THEY ARE NOT. You are being NARROW MINDED by making that statement. I’m sorry you’ve some across black/white men/women who have all happened to hurt you. I am a black woman and YOU CAN’T TELL I’M LIKE EVERY OTHER BLACK WOMAN. I’m not even the same colour as every other black woman we all come in different shades, shapes etc… I don’t act, think, dress, talk like every other black woman. I’m me and they are them. So if you’re one of those people who say men/woman are all the same or particular races are all the same, you need to go out there and DATE EVERY MAN/WOMAN IN THE WORLD, every person of the race you claim are all the same and come tell me of your findings. I’m sorry that you choose the wrong people and blame the rest of the world for it.
4. How can that white woman say black men desire white woman because they are more business and education orientated whereas black women just sit at home and have children? Only one word for her IGNORANT in fact she need to get out of her house and explore the world a bit more before she makes her absurd conclusions. Yes some black women do that but so do white women. Some white women also have kids and live on benefits just as much as black women do. It’s just that when there’s those benefit fraud shows or news articles people make a bigger deal when it’s people from ethnic minorities. A WHITE MAN, MICK PHILPOTT whoset his house ON FIRE KILLING SIX CHILDREN because he wanted the council to give him another house. He didn’t work but instead got women pregnant to get money off the council benefit-funded lifestyle. He ended up having 17 children of which 6 died. RIP. And no one paid attention to the fact that this was to do with benefits but rather the murder of his children.
