This movie touched on various issues that effect the black community in the U.S. One of the issues that struck me the most, was the issue of “yellow people prestige”. An example given in the film was that in the black community being called black, in reference to being very dark, is used as an insult. Twitter is notorious for exposing and profiting off of this age old rivalry of fair skin being seen as superior to dark skin complexions in the black community by its “team dark skin” versus “team light skin” hash tags. This issue has affected me personally because I am a woman of darker complexion and on various occasions in my childhood I was reminded of it, through the ignorant words of adolescent bullies. However, even then I never considered that being dark was a less desirable trait. I find it utterly confusing and disturbing that some shades of brown are more desirable than others because, to me, black is still black no matter if it appears as a banana flavored laffy taffy or a dark chocolate. One ignorant stereotype used to be that the lighter the girl’s skin was the longer and prettier her hair would be, but now with the weave revolution it seems like everyone and their mama has some “Cherokee” in their blood. Also, beauty is subjective. I think the black community could do a better job in talking about the foolery that is the “yellow people prestige”, maybe through a hash tag, black is black.
