For lightskinned people who say PoC treat them bad because of their light skin…
This is the sort of claim I want actual receipts for. Like physical evidence. I want video. Witness statements. The whole fucking deal.
Not once in my entire life has anyone darker treated me poorly because I have lighter skin. Not once.
I’ve had white people completely discount my experiences of racism. I’ve had white people erase and silence me. But that is kinda what they do, light skin or no, they always find a reason.
But has another PoC treated me bad because I have light skin? No. Not so much.
Like, receipts. That it was because of the light skin and not because you were acting like a special snowflake and being an asshole.
