We are black colored. Period.

Singer/Actor Tyrese Gibson announced their wedding final Valentineâ€™s Day. The focus was not on the fact that the self-appointed advice columnist found love and happiness, the focus was on the hashtag the singer used to describe his racially ambiguous wife while what should have been a joyous announcement was plastered all over social media. The hashtag heard â€˜round the world had been â€œ#MyblackQueen.â€ Now, i’m maybe not likely to imagine to understand just what Mrs. Gibsonâ€™s background that is racial nor am we likely to pretend to care, nevertheless the the truth is that this statement stabbed at a festering wound within the black colored community that declines to close.
I remember reading a write-up within the Washington Post entitled, â€œIâ€™m an Ebony Woman Who does not Date Black guys. Often, I feel Guilty About That.â€ The author speaks about the trauma inflicted on her as a youth and dealing with issues of colorism and self-hate in the article. This, evidently, caused her to shift her dating focus to white males in place of males that appear to be her.
