aka's and the light brite TRUTH Posted on 10-30-2005
boston, MA
you know i've never seen a light skinned Black girl with long hair it was always weave akatude is the stereotypical aka only i'm not sure if that's her hair but anyways now anyone who is into reading should read some old book that actually documented aka's and their color struck inutations they WERE actually color struck and if you were not light enough you didn't get in i thought that was interesting because a myth came out to be TRUE of course it's different NOW but to KNOW that your org WAS discriminatory like that has to make u feel bad poor aka's

Also, not everyone has contributed to this "light bright truth". Organizationally speaking Sigma has never contributed to this ridiculous notion of light somehow equaling better.
ditto. Way to break the myths sistergreek

Change, I think someone said you go to Howard. My older sister went to Howard and she is very light-skinned with long hair and it's hers.

Yeah and all the dark skinned negroes used to hate on light skin negroes. Perfectly justified! Bring the brown paper bag test back!
I know this is an old thread but I have to agree with you. ( I know this is controversial.) Some of the field negros have gotten in these orgs and have taken over. They hate on the house n*ggas. So I agree that the paper bag test should be brought back. There are too many AKA's running around looking like they have a false sense of beauty. There are too many AKA's that aren't looking how traditional AKA's should look. I'm sure the founders of AKA would roll in their graves if they would see the type or caliber of women that they are picking these days. They say the Southern Baton Rouge chapter of AKA and the dance girls squad are chosen by the paper bag test even to this day. They say the man in the past, who picked the girls for the dance team, said that he wasn't ever going to have a dark skin girl on his squad and that all the girls had to have long hair. The only girl that had short hair was extremely beautiful and looked like a model.

She's not lying.. Doc was very picky when he chose Southern University's Dancing dolls.. Everybody in Baton Rouge knows that... and if you would see the Fall 08 line of the AKA's at southern you will see that they all look very similar.

^^^ Thanks for clarifying that. Everybody knows that about Southern Baton Rouge. I don't have a reason to lie about that.
