I guess I am pretty. I am darkskin with very long hair. But I notice that lightskin women get mad when they see me. Is it because my hair is long and they feel threatened by a black girl with long hair? I have a lot of them rolling their eyes and putting on this superior attitude whenever I am around

All of us are beautiful whether we're blue black or light as the sun...just ignore those women that roll their eyes at you cause rest assured you're gonna run up on dark skin women that's jealous of you too...complexion doesn't matter when it comes to jealousy...

Women can feel threatened by a pretty women regardless of colour. I hate how you dark skin girls always make it about being darkskin. Anyways... if you look anything like the typical American women, I wouldn't feel a bit of "threat"

I mean do you have super sonic legs? eyes? lips? Baddd body?
Or are you just ya' typical darkskin girl with Long hair? Lol!

Can I make the same generalization about darkskinned women who give me the same attitude or am I just supposed to ignore it and pretend like it didn't happen?

True. But I think darkskin women find it refreshing that I am pretty and appear to keep myself up with self esteem. Lightskin women just roll their eyes or put on this faux superior attitude. Maybe it causes them some type of inner struggle to see a black woman who is darkskin that is attractive.

If your nice like you potray your self to be its them and their jealousy and or insecurities.

Ive seen with your talking about but I usually observe it on Social Sites. The ones who act like that feed into the lightskin pedastol from society, Certain BM and blk community.

Sweetie, just keep doing you there petty.

I observe it in real life. I am nice and keep to myself--but the nasty attitude and eye rolling are all over the place from them. But I notice they have no problem being cool with an ugly darkskin girl or a lightskin girl who looks like them than me.

And the lightskin pedastol doesn't exist. They want you to believe it does but it really doesnt

I find many Lightskin women to b terrifying becaus ethey cna be very mean and many hate darkskin girls for no reson at all. They will not be nice to a darkskin woman unless we allow them to boss us around and since most of us will nto allow s they will spread nasty rumors about us. I do not want to spread hate in our community so I am very saddened that I have no contact with many lightskin women in my community.

I haven't been friends with a lightskin girl since elementary/middle school. Most of the wommen I gravitate towards are usually brown/dark/middle toned. I am certianly not terrified of them, never had a reason to be. I just notice that they don't really befriend me; they're usually cold, will roll their eyes or avoid me. I think they sense they can't control me or tell me what to do so they have no use for me. I see them befriend dark women but like you said its usually ones they can boss around or ones that are not attractive

I've never really had any problems with dark skinned women. Never judged them based on their skin complexion. I also never felt like I was better than them because of my skin complexion even though my cousin would talk about how she hates lightskinned btches and how my grandmother would talk sht about them too. Hell my own mother would make little jokes about light skin nowing good and well if I said anything about darkskin she'd be offended even though I never had one bad thing to say about dark skinned women.

I think some of you dark skinned girls are just jealous and try to say that some light skinned women are concieted to try and make them look bad so you don't look bad for being jealous.

I'm not saying that their aren't some jealous lightskinned women because their are, but you dark skinned women get so jealous to the point where you start to physically and verbally attack people who you're jealous of.

Here we go again with this issue. Pretty is pretty why would you say do light skins girls feel threatened by a pretty dark skin woman? Don't black people come in like 20 hues? A pretty woman might still the show its not always about color. I get dirty looks from dark skin women mostly they roll their eyes at me or give me straight attitude in the door. But guess what white girls give me attitude and some Latinas give me attitude and guess who else my fellow redbones give me attitude too. Some dark skin girls are painfully jealous of lightskin women and some light skin girls can be jealous of dark skin women because some wish they were darker.

Most of the conceited black I knew or know have been darker than me. Some of the lighter ones are more down to earth and nice.

you must be apart of the camp that thinks darkskin women can't be attractive. I will just ignore you. Cause you want to make it seem as if lightskin women have everything to be jealous of
