    I would never want to downplay anyone’s abuse but, I’m curious about two dark skinned girls holding her down as a child. I hope it’s not a cop out to her talking smack & stepping in it. I don’t understand the whole color thing, never did she’s not white, not Latina she’s black so who cares how light she is she’s sill black.

    What happened is proof that colorism has a ripple effect. Her remarks came from a place of pain due to being sexually violated as a child. She was in effect lashing out the dark-skinned girls who violated her back then, but her remarks had the inevitable effect of hurting dark-skinned and brown-skinned women who had done nothing to her and who are the ones that bear the brunt of colorism. I listened to the stories of the other black women of various complexions who are in the entertainment field and who Iylana invited to share their experiences with colorism. I have heard from the dark-skinned and brown-skinned women who are relatives of mine about the sting of being overlooked for light women, and being made to feel inferior about not being light. So the stories from the darker women resonate with me. I can relate to the light-skinned woman who had the experience of having her darker friends rejected by being uninvited to a place where she was invited. It shows that we can experience the ugliness of colorism against dark women through friends and relatives we love. Hopefully, going forward, Hazel e will think before she posts and refrain from insulting other black women.
