The following statements are being said in a respectful manner and is not an attack.
Would you care to give the name of the story and the author who allegedly said light skin is ugly?
Has this author themselves ever publicly said they care about diversity, or are you grouping them together with those of us who have spoken up for diversity just because the author is a POC? I feel it is important to make this distinction and to be careful not to group anybody together. We are not a monolith and do not speak for each other. If this author has not spoken for diversity, then your statement “they say they support diversity or equality but they have a lot of prejudices” is concerning because it’s a generalization of a whole group of people and is assuming that everybody who falls under the wide POC umbrella thinks and wants the exact same thing.
Also, just so that you’re aware for future reference, in many POC communities, light skin does not mean white. Light skin means light brown. I am considered light skinned in the black community. If you see any references from a poc author, especially from a black author, using the term light skinned, they are not talking about white people; they are talking about people in their own community. When they are talking about white people, they will specifically say white, European or Caucasian. The term literally has nothing to do with white people. So it’s important that we know the context in which a statement is being said.
I would appreciate a specific example for where you allegedly saw the comment that light skin is ugly, such as the story and the author and a screenshot if you have it so that if it’s necessary, some of us may speak with this author privately.
Thank you, dear!
