"GREETINGS FROM THE LIGHTSKINNED NIGGA CONVENTION"
By Salvador Gabor


This is Salvador Gabor reporting live from "The 27th Annual Lightskinned Nigga" Convention in Scottsdale, Arizona. So far, this week has been a captivating and spiritually enlightening experience. All pale and light brown brothers from across the United States have gathered to recapture the better days of our organization.

For the past few years, this society has been complacent with re-affirming our rightful position ontop of the totem pole. We have let the darker African-American Male take the pole position when it comes to entertainment in particular. Darker actors, athletes, model and artists have bombarded the television screens, print ads and minds of women in our sector. Even caucasian women go for the darker man. Dr. Lance "Silky" Witherspoon, Lightskin Nigga of the Year in 1986 delivered and spirit-ripping speech on "The State of the Lightskin Nigga"

"Silky" Witherspoon mentioned that we should not be worried about our kind being defeated for many more years. He cautioned us to be aware but not afraid. Many of the Lightskin Niggas in high positions in our society suggested that we use tactics of incest such as the "Proctors" but, "Silky" calmed those suggestions down. He said that the "Nappy Headed Lightskin Nigga" must take the forefront in our re-claiming of the thrown. "You cant go from Wesley Snipes to ElDebarge". A slow transition of takeover and power-struggle should be assumed.

Needless to say he did lift our spirits. He reminded us that we still be members at Country Clubs, we didnt have to shave to help white folks not be scared of us, we still could walk down the sidewalk and folks not changes sides of the street and most importantly.........ladies will always rub our hair.

Ahh it was refreshing to leave this conference with a plain knowledge of who I am as a Lightskin Nigga
