Melanin & Skin Bleaching ¦ False Flag Operations

In a time when there seems to be more Black consciousness and there has been a revival in the “Black & Proud” movement, skin bleaching remains an ever-present scourge in Black society.

“Why Was Black Generation X Fatherless?: A Brief Statement On Why Many Black Men “Left” the Family In The 1970s” by T. Hasan Johnson, Ph.D. – Black Masculinism and New Black Masculinities

Great read….If I had not met my wife, I most def would have retired from dating, which I kind of did in a lot of ways….. divide and conquer is working…
