Acknowledging that colorism and all of its ramifications exists solves no problems because people can't really change their color. Yes, they can change their minds about color, but at what sacrifice? And why should some have to do more sacrificing than others? We're dealing with humans, not saints. In America, the quest to combat the racist exploitation of the majority is not viable because the minority has a shifting identity and no collective consciousness that unifies. Even the commonality of racism fails as an effective rallying point because racism is, itself, exploited by minority leaders with personal agendas. All the explanations and politicizing and interpreting and theorizing are academic. Things that people can't solve are inevitably left to Nature, which operates in the realm of the greatest good for the greatest number. Life happens, and those who survive are those who adapt. Only time will tell who makes the cut. And in this country, the great melting pot simmers on.
