I am because I follow alot of female black YouTubers (for various reasons) and they sometimes release videos about colorism and discrimination against dark skin black women in the black community and in media.
It really opened up my eyes even though it really doesn't affect me personally.
Of course I don't think I can just speak over dark skin black women or that I can even give a valid opinion over this but I am just really interested in it.
I also like to watch videos about natural hair.

I actively try not be too involved. What often happens is you’ll feel a sense of entitlement and that’s something I really wish to avoid. Be aware yes. Take active steps to ensure you’re not a part of the problem yes. Personal investment not so much. A tricky line to tread ...Could just as well fall under ‘Savior’ complex.

Not really. I listen to other people's POV but the only issue I'm invested in is feminism.

Queen of Billboard. If I will leave this place one day, then all merged ARMY will go with me to the Magic Shop so we can sing together the song of the Young Ones. ~ nale 2019

I'm not black, but still a poc. It's better to be aware than ignore it.
