Seems like the term is only applied when you prefer light skinned women.

Do you even know the difference between "Color Struck" And "Prefernce"

To Answer The Question No....UNLESS He Bashes Light Skinned People/BW"s etc. etc

Ex:

Perfernce::

I love -Insert Skin Complx Here- Females

But that

- Insert Skin Complx Here- Female Is


Looking Riiiitttteeee lemme get at Her!!!!



Color Struck::

Yo I love Me Some

- Insert Skin Complx Here- Female

But I don't Ever F#%k With - Insert Skin Complx Here- Females

Cause they Look [[[[Black/Burnt Pale/Casper or Piss Yellow]]] As F#%k Yuck!!!!

A general question. It seems poltically incorrect in the black community to say you like light-skinned black women.

i am chris brown's complexion i absolutely have no problem when blackmen prefer darkskinned ladies. As they hardly do!! To me, when they choose darkskin, its like a compliment to me as it symbolises that blackmen really appreciate black beauty to its FULLEST. When they prefer lighterskin, i always think they prefer women with lesser black features. Thats just how i feel. But if they bash lighterskin ladies just cos they wana prove their love or get status in the black community, its sad. We should all appreciate every shades of brown and black. They're all beautiful one more important thing. Black is universial, when we mix into one, we become one really really dark shade. So am all embracing for darkskin.

When slavery ended, light-skinned blacks established social organizations that barred darker ex-slaves. Elite blacks of the early 20th century were fair-skinned almost to the person. Even today, most blacks in high positions have fair skin tones, and most blacks who do menial jobs or are in prison are dark. Believe it or not, popular black magazines, such as Ebony as Essence, prefer light-skinned models in their beauty product ads.

Nothing wrong with having a preference if you like dark skin women that's fine! But don't start dogging lite skin sistas to support your claim.BLACK IS BLACK I'm so sick of a race war within its a dam shame!

There Nothing Wrong With Saying That Honestly, Just as long as your not dogging the Otha sistas...Solely based off Complex

They Take It That Way Because You Catagorized The Skin Tone Of the BW, Instead Of Jus Saying You Like BW"s in General


Plus The Fact That They Sh1t On DarkSkin People/More So BW"s the Most in general.


I've seen a few jet black dudes want only lightskin. And I've heard some homies talk about it like it's platinum as they describe the perfect bw

Some Feel Like They Put Light Skin On A Pedastol Just Because Of their Complextion.


And you really don't hear a darkskin prefernce half as much so they just leave it alone if somebody does

Hey folks, what's up? I am a 26 y/o recent graduate of a Master’s program here in New York City. I have heard different perspectives on this topic and will put another twist on it.
I am African American with very dark skin (about India Arie's color) and have locs. I have been natural since the age of 7 and wore a low natural cut in high school. I have NEVER had a weave in my entire life; in being raised by an Afro-Caribbean mother who is to say the least, VERY Afro-centric.
But, what's so intriguing is I realize and have come to grips with the fact that Black men, for the most part, do not embrace darker sisters; especially if she's natural as well. Brothers have shown this so many times, that now at the tender age of 26, I do not see a romantic future with the Black man. I mean, even if a brother is upset with me for anything as small as letting him know that I can't give him my number because I'm in a relationship, the first thing he goes after is:'You tar baby bitch' or 'You nappy headed hoe.'
Now don’t get me wrong. I don’t advertise this or walk up to a brother and make nasty comments. I’ve just silently walked away. My walking away from brothers is something that my mother and I disagree on. She always raised me that 'the blacker the better' and that my color was beautiful. But, at the end of the day, I can't marry my mama.(LOL!)
In placing it all together, Black men prefer lighter women, even if she's not as attractive as her darker skinned homegirls. I’ve seen situations where the darker sister was prettier and had a nicer attitude and spirit, but the lighter sister still get more attention from brothers, PERIOD.
If a sister is dark skinned and gets alot of brotherly love, her weave is from here to the moon. And, she is so insecure about her look to where she will openly say,‘Girl, I’m already dark. I can’t be nappy headed too.’ A light skinned sister can get away with being natural. But, if she’s dark and natural, White or Latino men will get into her face first. I know it because I’ve lived it and have heard the same experiences from other dark skinned black sisters.
And, what was said to me has been so hurtful that I no longer hold on to the false reality of finding my ‘Mandingo king.’ Because for the most part, Black men do not show me the same love and I'm not begging anyone to love me. If you can't take me for who I am, then goodbye.
Lots of love!

Wait. So you are in a relationship, and Black men approach you. But You say Black men don't want you? That doesn't make any sense.

It's like you women have to come up with a million and one excuses. Because you prefer non-black men.

Well light skin is not an original black trait so no. I think saying you prefer dark skin or more specifically NON mixed blacks does not mean colorstruck. you just prefer black and that is it, no mixes. Just my opinion...

Disagreed...She's in a Relationship, Obviously her Turing them down in a polite manner shows loyalty.

I personally think if BM wasn't Her 1st Preference
I dnt thnk she would have killed them her Mandingo Kings -Just An observation

That wasn't an excuse Nor a prefernce it was an example of how black people in her experince don't appreciate darker skin.

No thank you I'm in a RelationShip

You Black B1tch I didn't wanna talk to you anyways, Nappy Headed Hoe

Walks Away Quitely Hurt & Angry

-I Can Personally C/S That
