Light Girls’ Faces

Posted in Society on January 30th, 2015

There’s a plethora a roads that lead to beauty and beautiful faces come in many shades. No one is any better or worse than any other, though each of us will likely have our preferences – though I’m one of the exceptions this, not having any generalized, ethnic or racial preferences when it comes to women’s beauty.

Light Girls’ Beautiful Faces

Of course, society being what it is, not all beautiful faces are treated equally. This is especially true for light-skinned Black women. They catch a lot of Hell from their darker-toned sisters…for no other reason than being a lighter shade of brown.

Don’t get me wrong; I’ve my own issues with society’s general conception of Black beauty. It’s just that the prejudice, bigotry, and general vileness of the “Black Community’s” response to light-skinned Black women – especially if they have “good hair” and/or light eys – is extremely despicable, vulgar, and abhorrent to me.

To those angry Blacks and the various Liberal angst appropriators who believe that I, a White man – a “Cracka” to boot, should never comment on internecine Black issues: Suck it up, Buttercup!

I live in “The Hood” and one of my wives is Black. I have to hear about and, to some extent, deal with this shit every day so I’ll comment as I damn well please.

The shadism or colorism that the “Black Community” inflicts upon itself is as ridiculous as it is pernicious, which is to be expected since it’s nothing but racism being applied to their own people.

Saying And Hearing

Non-communication in the gun debate
Saying And Hearing – Not Closely Related

One of the primary reasons I tell people not to bother verbally arguing with the gun-grabbers is that Americans and the Liberals and Progressives can’t truly effectively communicate with each other on this issue. What an American says and means is distorted into something else by the cultural bias of the Liberals and Progressives. What we say is not closely related at all to what they hear.

Surviving The Snow In Style

Despite the cynical manipulation of the various “weathertainment” channels and the over the top overreaction by Bill de Blasio, NYC’s cop killer mayor, The Blizzard That Wasn’t of 2015 didn’t do much more than give us a chance to enjoy a snow day.
