Curse of being mixed (lightskinned. Hello i was just wondering if anyone else noticed this and if anyone else has had these same experiences as me. Ever since i can remember the majority of black girls who liked me are dark skinned black girls. I am a very light skinned actually im white than some of my white friends lol. but im just curious because i never see 2 light skinned people together and i was wondering if the majority of light skinned (or mixed) girls like darker guys cuz i know the dark girls love light skinned guys but i dont really like dark skinned girls. theyre kind of nasty

You're on your own. My friends range in all types of complexions from light to dark. Only shallow people choose friends based on complexion...IMO.

Commentator Deborah Mathis looks at what role skin shade, and not just race, plays in prison sentencing. A new study shows darker-skinned African-Americans receive harsher sentences than their lighter-skinned counterparts. Deborah Mathis is a syndicated columnist and a professor at the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University.

Has it ever occurred to you that I didn't read the entire post?
Has it ever?

Well, I didn't. That's why I didn't call his ass out on that sh!t.
BC, be the bigger person. Two wrongs don't make a right.
You're still in the wrong either way. It doesn't change sh!t.

You shouldn't call BM gorillas. He shouldn't call dark BW nasty.
I should've read the entire post.

Let's all walk away with a lesson.

sorry, but why did you put down 'mixed(lightskinned)'? MIXED is MIXED and lightskinned is a lightskinned black person. You mixed folks need to be happy that your MIXED and stop trying to claim lightskinned blacks tone

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.

You guys have serious issues! At the end of the day does skin tone really matter! Who cares about light skin and dark skin. You people need to get on with life. I HATE WHEN BLACK PEOPLE START CALLING EACH OTHER NAMES Cause of skin tone. That's a low class mentality. You are to stupid to realize that society has brain washed your mines. KEEP IT UP! YOU WILL BE THE LOOSER IN THE END. YOU NEED TO WAKE UP! Gorilla, come on! That's so oldschool. Little under developped mines!

Black, White, Yellow, Red are colors.
American, Canadian, French, Russian are nationalities.
Christian, Muslim, Jew are religions.
Full lips, thin lips, flat forehead or high foreheads are structures or forms.
Light-skin would be an identifier for shades of skin colors on the 'lighter'side. Dark-skin would be an identifier for skin shades on the 'darker' side.
To be light-skinned could be anyone on the face of the earth that are obiously light-skinned regardless of nationality. Bone structures vary from region to region. My point is if you are a light-skinned 'black' person, that is an absolutely ridiculous statement. It doesn't matter if people have been saying this for generations. It was ridiculous then and it is ridiculous now. You are either light-skinned or you're not depending on whom you're being compared to. To be mixed can be anything at any time in history. Technically if a man with dark skin marries a woman with dark skin, but he has a narrow nose and his wife has a wider nose, then their child would be mixed in the same sense since both people are carry genes with a different nose type. So you have race problems because you don't even know what you are seeing in the mirror.

I'm light skinned and I feel pretty much the same way you feel. Most dark skinned Blacks do prefer light skins. Most dark skinned females do have nasty attitudes and I do not like them because of that. For some reason light skinned Blacks tend to be more successful than dark skins. And people of all races tend to prefer light skinned Blacks. Light skinned Blacks & mulattoes are a minority in the Black community, so it's kinda hard to find a mate with light skinned complexion. Some of my cousins a real light skinned, both of their parents are light skinned, and they married light skins. The bottom line is many light skinned blacks prefer to stick with their own kind.
