Here is a brief COMMENTARY on 
 the constant misapplication
 (to 
the people who are of part-Black 
/ Mixed-Race Lineage) of 
the racist ‘One-Drop Rule’
**:




  • ... THE FACTS are as follows:


    1) It is often a surprise for people to learn that, in reality, there 
    is actually No Such Thing As a "Light Skinned Black"
     person.

    2) Very few people seem to be aware of the fact that the term
    "Light Skinned Black" is really nothing more than a racist
    oxymoron created
     by Racial Supremacists in an effort to
    forcibly deny those Mixed-Race individuals, who are of
    a Multi-Generational Multiracially-Mixed (MGM-Mixed)
    lineage, the right to
     fully embrace and to also received
    public support in choosing to acknowledge the truth
    regarding their full ancestral heritage and lineage.


    3) The people who have been slapped with the false label and
    oxymoronic misnomer of "Light Skinned Black"
     person are simply
    Mixed-Race individuals -- who are from families that have been
    CONTINUALLY Mixed-Race THROUGHOUT multiple generations.


    4) Seeing that every other Mixed-Race group is allowed the dignity
    of receiving support in having itself referred to by the term that
    it most prefers – the question becomes “Why should the
    situation be any different for those Mixed-Race
    individuals who are of an Multi-Generational
    Multiracially-Mixed (MGM-Mixed) lineage?
    ”.


    5) If an MGM-Mixed individual would like to be referred to by the
    term ‘Mixed-Race’ (which is what they actually are) rather than by
    that of “Light-Skinned Black“
     (a term, which, once again, has the
    racist-origin of being nothing more than an oxymoronic-phrase that
    was both created and coined by Racial Supremacists in an effort to
    try to deny these Mixed-Race people their right to and support in
    publicly acknowledging and also embracing their FULL-Lineage)
    there is no reason that they (like every other group on the planet
    -- whether Mixed-Race or not) should not be allowed the right

    to choose the term that society uses in referring to them
    (and to have their full-lineage acknowledged within that term).
