Once I dated a black girl named Sasha who would always rant about how much she hated black men. The stuff she said actually creeped me out. She used to talk about how she wishes all black men would get killed by cops, and that any black baby boy should be aborted. I mean that's bizarre she'd say this. I've never heard a white girl say anything like this.
Yet one time my buddy Brandon made a joke about black women wearing wigs. Sasha lost her shit and called him a racist. To this day she still hasn't gotten over it. She broke up with me because I wouldn't stop being friends with Brandon.
Black people need to get over what whites have done in the past, and focus on the self hatred racism in their community at the moment. Because right now whites have way more respect for black people than they have for themselves!
The 2 people in the pics are Tommy Sotomayor and Christelyn Karazin. They are both famous for speaking hatred to other black people. They show just as much hate to blacks as the KKK. Don't believe me? Look it up yourself!

"No one would hire her in her country because she's a darker shade of black. These were other black people who wouldn't hire her because she's too black. If these were white people who didn't hire her because of her black skin." - You're talking about something called "colorism", which is a form of discrimination among black people.
Colorism exists because during slavery, slave owners used to put light-skinned blacks "working" inside their house. While dark-skinned blacks were forced to "work" outside, facing harsh weather conditions and performing much harder tasks.
So, the lighter you were, the "better" it would be for you. Even tough, you were still a slave.
Unfortunately, this idea is still strong in the minds of some black people. I don't know how many times I've heard people I know and some of my relatives, saying how good is to be light-skinned and how bad is to be dark-skinned. It's really sad and ridiculous, because we're all black and human.
The girl you dated, doesn't represent all the black people in the US, or even in the world. That was what she said and thinks, it's not like all black people are like her.
I don't know who Tommy Sotomayor is. I've never heard about him.
But, I do know who Christelyn Karazin is and it doesn't seem to me that she hates black people.
So if black people still carry on the colorism. Then they obviously like living in slavery and they can't complain about any discrimination from others
NOT all black people "support" colorism. I personally think it's stupid and that it shouldn't exist.
And NO ONE likes to be discriminated.
