I was standing behind a friend yesterday when I thought it would be fun to cover his eyes like an immature being, and he responds immediately, “Ah Sri Lanka!.”
Since my hands remain covering his eyes, I ask him how he knew it to be me. He replies, “well it was easy, I saw a black woman going past me, and I knew it was you!”.
“Racist!”I call him, and tell him that he was trying to spread the apartheid, but left it at that as I knew the man had no brain and mouth filter at times. Last night being one of those moments when he announced quite generoulsy to a guy I found attractive that I was in the process of evaluating how he looks. Despite the fact that he was being an idiot, the line made me consider a lot of things. His reply to my accusation of him being a racist was, “well you are black non?”.
I wondered how a load of Sri Lankans would react to his words. With all the money they invest in facials, creams and make up, so as to look lighter skinned as they humanly could achieve.
My buddy was not a true “whitie” in theory, (though of course his skin was ten shades lighter than mine) given that he came from one of those tropical French colonies. He says he misses the places since his move to the land of his coloniser about 6 years ago, while we walk to the stadium together one morning.
Having listened to him and his chatter, I ask him whether he ever manages to hook up with a woman, given his horrendous bluntness in analysing things, and he responds that he did manage a long while back and thus not too up-to-date with flirting. A few days later, he lobbies the minister of finance, a short haired young lady who he orbits at a party. I bug him over it and he tells me it is all part of lobbying. I show him the middle finger as he had already embarrassed me in public at 2am with his thoughtless announcements.
Well coming back to the original topic of people, men and women and most importantly shades of skin, I think I should introduce my buddy to people in Sri Lanka. He would call all of them black, and go “you are black non?” with his air of “I have proved my point, so you better not say anything different”.
So to sum it in short, I shalt say bless those poor souls in South Asia who consider them not too black, but close to a lighter shades of brown, and make sure that fair and lovely is applied with all reverence! Bless all those souls who think they are yellow, cause the make-up companies decided to create foundation shades called yellow or saffron!
Going with my buddy’s precedence I shalt type thus: the world has only two shades. Black, and white! And the rest is..well non-existent.

When White on White crime takes place it’s never talked about the way it is when Blacks commit crimes.
In the United States, a White person is almost six times more likely to be killed by another White person than by a Black person, according to FBI homicide data. In 2011, there were more cases of Whites killing Whites than there were Blacks killing Blacks. However, the mainstream media obsesses over Black on Black violence and rarely mentions the problem of White on White violence.
These statistics have not led to a media outcry about the problem of White on White crime or the unique pathology of the White community. Nor has the White community stood up to demand change in their community like the Black community does when trying to tackle instances of Black on Black crime.
Most White people don’t kill White people. Yet media pundits, from Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly to CNN’s Don Lemon, have no problem using the phrase “Black on Black violence” despite the fact that most Black people don’t kill Black people.
When the news talks about gang-related deaths, they treat it as an almost exclusively Black problem. However, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, for the period of 1980 to 2008, a majority (53.3 percent) of gang homicides were committed by White offenders, and the majority of gang homicide victims (56.5 percent) were White.
When was the last time you’ve seen on the news, discussions about a White-gang problem?
Crimes committed by White people are explained as deviations of the individual but have nothing to do with race, but crimes committed by Blacks or Latino’s are somehow attributed to race. Gang-bangers from South Chicago have somehow become a symbol that Black men are to be feared, but you don’t get the same fear that one could attach to the brutal murders committed by Neo-Nazi skinheads.
According to statistics from the Justice Department, White men are more likely to kill than any other racial group. When it comes to how and why people kill, Black men do, in fact, outnumber Whites in gun-related homicides, but especially drug-related offenses. However, White men top the list in most all other categories.
When the Bureau of Justice Statistics collected homicidal rates from 1980 to 2008, they found that compared to Blacks, Whites were more likely to kill children, the elderly, family members, and their significant others. They commit more sex-related crimes, gang related crimes, and are more likely to kill at their places of employment.
So why does America still perpetuate the lie of Black criminality?
Is it because one in 15 Black men are in prison? That may not explain it. The racial biases in the War on Drugs contribute to the high incarceration rates. Studies show that Blacks are no more likely than Whites to use or sell drugs. Blacks actually only make up 14 percent of regular drug users. Yet Blacks are more likely to be arrested for drug crimes, and receive longer sentences than Whites.
Should we blame gangster rap with the gun-toting rappers? If so, why can’t we blame a White man with a pistol being used to symbolize Second Amendment rights?
