Dark Skinned Appreciation Day

Posted in Race by chamblee54 on July 12, 2012

PG was trying to recycle some old blonde jokes into a post, and was over it. A trip to twitter was made, and the joke pickins were slim. A look at the Trending Topics revealed something called #DarkSkinnedAppreciationDay. Text to separate the pictures just gets sketchier every day. The pictures today are from The Library of Congress.
The current POTUS, BHO, has dark skin. The temptation to label him as black ignores the fact that the late Ann Dunham, the mother POTUS, was Caucasian. As his political career developed, BHO decided that a “black identity” would be to his advantage. The Kansas/Kenya background has “colored” his presidency. Dark skinned is a good phrase to describe BHO.
Another popular phrase in progressive circles is people of color, or POC. The head facilitating this post rests on a red neck. While red is usually considered a color, people with red necks are routinely labelled white, or the absense of color. Labels for people can be confusing.
