#TeamDarkSkin VS #TeamLightSkin – 2013

As we look back at 2013, let us not forgot to pay tribute to our triumphs, tribulations and of course – melanin levels. Yes folks, we’re talking about the color of your skin. 2013 was just as important as any other year in recognizing that the skin color is important, and often newsworthy, just ask Santa Claus (or Megyn Kelly).

For black Americans, aka the New Slaves, there’s no need to be reminded of the part pigment plays in our daily lives, unless it’s from JJ Doom. Hell, we’ve even developed hashtags for that shit – #TeamDarkSkin and #TeamLightSkin. It’s a new level of ignorance and black-on-black hue hating. It’s like back in the days when our ancestors fought over who was light enough to go in the house and who had to stay in the fields and pick cotton. If only our genetically identical predecessors could see us now.  Would they pat us on the back, or pull a switch off the nearest willow tree and beat our ass with it?

But hey, if we’re really going to be ignorant enough to use hashtags for hues (not quite humanity), then let’s embrace it fully, and more importantly, let’s be democratic about it. See, the problem with the #TeamDarkSkin vs #TeamLightSkin battle is that no one is actually keeping score. Hell, there aren’t even team captains, which is essential for establishing the players and winner.

So we’re here to help with a recap of the battlefield during 2013. We’ve got the team captains, they’ll pick the players and explain why their team had a better year. Play ball.
