I read a very interesting article by Vanessa Williams on The Root today. She writes, “It’s true: A lot of black women fell for Barack Obama the moment they saw his wife. If a black president represents change, a dark-skinned first lady is straight-up revolutionary.” Having grown up in the South, I am somewhat familiar with the “intraracial biases” that Vanessa discusses in her article. I think “white people” don’t always “get it” when it comes to these issues, and I feel that this article is very eye-opening and should be read by all.
