169. Fantastic post.
Thanks alot for that. Even darker black folks are always feeling that we have to "be blacker" in order to pass muster. I love being black, and I love, LOVE black people but we can be some of the most oppressive people in the whole damn world towards EACH OTHER.

Cornel West's attitude should not be lauded for exactly the reasons that you mentioned. But you speak from wisdom and experience, two qualities that most of the people applauding West do not seem to possess.
