  1. Where can I watch this in its entirety??

  2. I so want to find the full video.

  3. Ms.Phylicia Speaking Powerfully as usual❀.

  4. Phylicia has not went through what these ladies are speaking of…….

  5. Phylicia Rashad with the gaslighting 101

  6. you guys have to understand. colorism is as rampant as homophobia in the black community. us gay blacks haven't healed from being told we're less than either. what makes you think colorism is going to heal itself before homophobia? sad but true.

  7. I love Phylicia Rashad, but she (a light skinned woman) interrupted the darker skinned women who were talking about their experiences and their pain :/

  8. I think Rashad is one of the most beautiful women in the world

  9. Ms. Rashad is everything!!!!!!!

  10. This whole interview was actually dope. I do not know why Oprah took it off of her page.

  11. Phylicia is what I call "Regal Eagle!"

  12. Phylicia's "What?!" at 01:08 really translates, "How is that even O.K. for people to do?"

  13. 🀣🀣🀣🀣

  14. Beautiful ❀️ Black Women All. πŸ™‚

  15. Hi Mrs Crosby. Dark skin girl u r beautiful

  16. How long it gonna take? The answer is: *STOP MARRYING AND BREEDING WITH THE ENEMY!!* The "Falling Dove" has that answer in his video.

  17. They just completely dismissed the experience of the women dealing with this everyday.

  18. Viola davis is so beautiful 😍

  19. Phylicia wasn't playing. She wasn't beat for it!!!πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  20. I like Phylicia Rashad but her attitude towards this conversation really pissed me off.

  21. Viola D is so right it is still there, mate used to call me this dark, dark girl as if it was a negative. Interracial colourism is still there, it is a legacy we need to heal. I used to struggle with some hollywood black films as there were no dark women, all cast of a certain colour – really annoying, same here in UK supporting roles with light skin black women with white lead – we are getting there (series Vera with darker beautiful actress). Seems not to be the case as much with the men

  22. She said don’t bring it my way!!! ShootπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

  23. Felicia looks so uncomfortable having this colorism discussion. It’s way beyond being dumb. It truly affects the trajectory of of peoples lives. Just like racism ins just β€œdumb”. I still love her though.

  24. If I remember correctly, Spike Lee’s movie β€œ School daze” didn’t bring any unity but more confusion & fights amongst girls in my family whenever we sat down & watched it together. We’re the blame for keeping this mess going nowadays b/c the whites want to be like us. So who’s doing it? We are!

  25. the women who raised me gave me love so i love women dark or light skin a entire village a street full of aunts and a church full of urchers

  26. well my granny pecan brown made high yellow brown and dark brown girls i like them all cause my aunts are sweet to me

  27. I don't think the ladies were really feeling Phylicia Rashad comments.

  28. Light skin vs Dark skin is ridiculous. Light in the house and the dark in the fields. Can we move on and love what is own the inside. I just don't see color.

  29. This is a major problem for Oprah Winfrey who doesn't believed that the cast system still exists is a problem within itself. Oprah billionaire status make her over looked , Willie lynch syndrome and white supremacy that still harms our people and places our people in a plantation Psychosis state of mind. I even heard other black women say, if Oprah didn't have money, she wouldn't have Steadman.

  30. These comments are indicative of the problem. To be engaged in this conversation means that this IS still an issue. When Viola says, "We're still healing", I feel that's a valid statement because WE ARE, ie. Lost Knowledge of Self, "Willie Lynch Syndrome", PTSD(Post Traumatic Slave Disorder). These are just a few of the many social engineering techniques and symptoms that arise out of techniques employed by racists and white supremacists who sought and still seek to subjagate and rule over the "So Called Blacks", and make them a permanent underclass. This subjagation also applied to any of the other melanated families of Earth that could be conquered in this manner. Now, let me pause for a moment to add that ALL " white" people didn't hold these wayward ideas,ie. (John Brown) but can't deny inherent advantages based on the paradigm of the systematic structuring that arose out of these deliberately devilish social engineering methods. Those in our family that have dark complexions were treated with an extreme contempt as a way of breaking or damaging the root to distort the growth of the offshoot. In order to totally subjagate us as a people, they engineered self hate,which then transfers to the offshoots. They engineered division by promoting Dark vs. Light, Man vs. Woman, field vs. house, Have vs. Have Nots etc. Since those days of long ago, their engineering experiment has been self-sustaining, only to the degree today of knowledge of self, cultivation of self and do for self, which spirals into OURSELVES, ie. Children and Future Generations. The Darkest among them women, Ms. Viola Davis, who I might addd is an Earth Goddess that I adore, Complexion Shines with that Essence Glow! She was HURT, you not only could see it in her expression you could hear and feel the emotion(e=energy-motion=movement). She is resiliently beutiful, after overstanding the types of various abuses that are endured by dark to light complexions but visited on darker complexions with that reinforcement of Willie Lynch Syndrome by those who have deep seated issues with highly melanated beings as well as those beings who's complexions are'nt as melanated. This is REINFORCEMENT of the Willie Lynch Programming, (Keep Ya Down Reinforcing Negative Sounds, Which Are Tones, Which Are Vibrations, That Emanate from Darkness of "Nothingness", That Essence From Which All Things Arise to Become Something). This is a Spell, induced through the incantations of "English " language and woven into society as business as usual. Spelling is to cast a Spell, Cursive is indicative of a Curse, Hence the reason it was forbidden for kidnapped "Africans" in America, to read or write English or practice and cultivate their original culture. This gave the social engineers the time to cultivate their own social sciences based on white supremacy. The point I'm attempting to make is that a concerted effort was /is being made by members of European nations to conquer the world, ie.( Pinky and The Brain!) All those women up there are BEAUTIFUL regardless of Degrees of Complexion and I have admired them for their beuty , intelligence as well as accomplishments for years. Gabby is the youngest and least experienced, her comment was like telling your Mother and Aunties about the Tom Foolery that still exists that they may not be aware of, her expression looked like my daughter respectfully trying to interject an experienced to her elders on the back of Phylicia Rashad's, "How Long It's Gonna Take"! statement, that can be interpreted as a little condescending. I also think her condescending attitude is more disdain than snobbish, that we still succumb to such short-comings that she may deem petty. It took years to cast this spell so it will take some time to break it and recondition the spirit and mind and cultivate freshly. It's so deep that it is in your BLOOD, written in your DNA, you can root out and rewrite on your DNA through cultivation of spirit, mind and body. Knowledge of self and Cultivate YOUR CULTure. I think Phylicia Rashad cleaned it up nice by taking the high road and striving to inspire and encourage, yet it may take more time for others to repair from this damage based on the degree of their personal experience. Time of healing Isn't a one size fits all and different modalities may be necessary for others, but love and understanding is necessary for our own reconciliations, personally and collectively.

  31. wow i felt that closing speech. shivers

  32. Light skin vs Dark skin is the stupidest thing ever. Everyone is beautiful!

  33. What was the mean girl comment about?

  34. I don't come across many that can present something and make something sounds so wonderful. She knows how to bring out and create a beautiful perspective with her words and her voice just adds to it. She has such a sweet, motherly, admirable, experience-filled, authoritive, humbling, story-telling voice. Her type of voice just makes you want to listen to every single thing that she has to say and take it all in. Not everyone has that. Her voice and speech is a perspective changer. I just love her and I always have since way back in the day. I love you so much, Phylicia!!

  35. Phylicia Rashad was dismissive of colorism, especially as a light skin person. Yes we must push forward BUT you have to acknowledge the experiences of those who are recipients of colorism.

  36. Phylicia Rashad BLESSES me EVERY TIME she opens her mouthπŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ’―

  37. Still major!!! I’m light skin and people hate me before I say anything or they think I’m stuck up!!! Everyone is beautiful!! I hate when people say oh β€œshe’s cute for a brown girl or you don’t have a perm? That can’t be all your hair!!

  38. I don’t understand how people could be so cruel especially to their own kind .

  39. Light skins and dark skins are the exact same and thing whole thing is getting out of hand
