Hi, black honey. When you say "we control the world", who is "we?". You make it sound like it's someone other than rich WHITE people that own America, make decisions and control the world; everyone else in America aint part of that group..definitely not black people...so it's not good to be riding on the coat-tails of evil white men. And people have to come here for opportunity because America done fcked up every country in the world with their bullshyt, not because ya'll superior..i think everyone knows by now how this country got to be where it is today.

Dark skin is the best color. Not just biologically as we all know, aesthetically some people think it's not appealing but on closer inspection there's something very alluring and majestic about black skin..i can't really explain it.

Are you talking about Manute Bol dark (God Bless his Soul), or are you talking about the typical darkskinned African-American? Be honest.

my orginal comment was in response to that crazy chick shalimar go back and check her posts. She said "the USA was over a century behind the rest of the world" I'm like really?? And I started thinking how bad people from all over the world dam near die trying to get to America. I know we are bullies no ignorance here!!! But we still are a world power and one of the best countries in the world to live in regarding freedom and opportunity!!! The pros out weigh the cons that's for sure. This country is ruled by those with money but they are not always white either. Black American bulit this country for FREE 99 we don't always get credit for it but we know the truth!!! In no way shape or form am I trying to pretend like america is perfect but I surely wouldn't want to be born anywhere else ( not like I had a choice) my ancestors got dropped off in what would be one of the richest most powerful countries in the world and for that I feel grateful and blessed!!!! I could only imagine being born in a country that is torn by war, explosions everyday, extreme poverty, no freedom, not being able to voice my opinion, or having to cover my entire body except for my dam eyes now that's fuced up!!!!!! I love my country and feel blessed to be from here!!!!!

My wife is very dark skinned. But she also has nice natural long hair and beautiful eyes.

She is of Somali origin. And she gest hated on by some Black women who think her hair is fake just because she is dark skinned.

I don't get it, why do some Black females have these issues in North America?

black is beautiful no doubt!! But come to the north and see how obsessed they are with redbones. Lil Wayne is from Louisiana why is he always promoting " redbones" in his songs and saying shi like. " I bet that beyotch look better red" remember he got called out for those comments. Don't forget the rapers that mainly put light skin and mixed chicks in the videos the black Latinas and shi!! Just now am I starting to see hip hop artist put all hues of black In their videos I guess they got enough negative response from the black community and they are STARTING to change

New orleans has a strong creole culture,so colorism might be an issue there.A little different than the rest of the deep south cuture.Many of the blacks there came from Haiti,which is where you get the vodun and other haitian influinces there.They almost sound jamaican when they speak "ay wottie my bredeh up da block".They dont speak "country'.lol

i am not a fan of America, I think it's overrated, Shalimar is right in that this country is a century behind in a lot of things. And this country has only freedom for some folks, not really for black folks. Also White Rich Elite rule this Satanic country. Yes Black Americans built this country but we are not seeing all the benefits of that. News flash: also freedom of speech is going away very quickly so you are not as free as you think you are.

Are you sure about that? Although they improved over the years, they seem to be the only place still stuck on the light skinned envy crap. I moved down here thinking they were past that foolishness. It seems like they're past it when you visit, but that seems to slowly change when you move here. Most of the darkskinned girls down here still tell me that the brothers like the redbones.

It's a different story for me. Most black dudes i know not feeling dark skin women like that..they usually prefer redbones. At first sight they see the black skin and it evoke in their mind all the negativity associated with blackness. I think if they really examine it and look at black skin a little deeper they'll see what you and i see.

Of coarse everywhere you go you will see color issues at different levels.But from my experience,maybe because i grew up in in all black city(Atlanta),that always had black mayors,black everything,so my experience may be a little different than where youre at.Plenty of times ive seen a group of women walk by and youll hear someone in the crew say "I love me chocolate guls bwoy".Or "they look better naked"(refering to that smooth chocolate skintone),sht like that.If shes fine shes fine,regardless of skin tone.We dont be on no "oh she's dark so she aint cute" type shit.

I totally agree you see some Tones of dark that are smooth and shiny and others like dry and ashy. That pretty much goes for all skin tones tho!!
