    Notice how 8 out of 10 80% of them are Fair to Light skin. What does that tell you all? Clearly, these journalist are not representative of “blacks” and a majority of them are from the south they are probably reading scripts that the WHITE PRODUCERS told them to read.

    Someone needs to acknowlege that the only type of “black people” you see on tv are fair to light skin.
