Addendum: like trouble said America has robbed other countries blind so they have a hard time staying in their country. This country has destroyed entire cultures under the false premise of protecting our freedoms. WHAT A JOKE!!!!!!!!!! Yes I served in the military for 8 years and have seen firsthand how corrupt this country is and the propaganda they use on people. This country is a joke "In God We Trust", really? They are saying that while bombing other countries into the dark ages. America invades other countries when they can take from their vast resources not from some I want to help this country out. A lot of propaganda used here to think this is such a great country. And about this subject of brainwashing dark skinned BW into thinking they are inferior or something is wrong with their skin. This is typical of the brainwashing and propaganda this country uses to make people think it is such a great country. With the rich resources of this country there should not be any poor or homeless in America. I could go on and on about this Satanic country Sodom and Gomorrah place called America.

Those nationalities get all kinds of tax breaks from America just to shut out black people from progressing. And they should give poor people something after robbing poor people blind over centuries. America is not the perfect and great place you make it out to be especially for black people and specifically black men.
Right, and many blacks like her are under the illusion that they are free. Remember black wall street? Let michael Jordan or magic johnson, or bill cosby try to establish something like that today and see what will happen.

All female skin is smooth. The blue thing come from the hood. Everybody very dark don't have the same skin texture, and everybody light don't have the same skin texture. You said the darker the more it shines, so what are you trying to find, a chalkboard...don't mean to be funny. Some have the glow, some don't, regardless of skin tone.

Now if you are African living in that part of Africa, the picture you showed me is something they are more qualified to judge on than we are over here, and I won't knock them. But I'm, like most here are African-American, I assume. We come in different shades in America, and most of our darkest don't reach the color of the photo you presented. It's okay to say that that skin tone can be beautiful too, but I personally don't go for the darker the shinier mentality...which is usually used over here to boost the ego.

As I said, to each is own. I like the skin that glows. Sometimes that shining dark skin is a lot of lotion and oil. I said sometimes. Some need a lot, so don't.

you shouldn't assume things I have been out the country on MANY vacations!!! I understand that immigrants get tax breaks that's another reason why they come here!! This country is still better than living anywhere else! What country is better than America to live in? Canada ?? France, Nigeria is nice if you have money!! I don't get the wrong impression about how many people wanna come here you obviously have never been to Mexico REAL Mexico not the tourists spots. If america was so bAd they way you make it out to be WHY? Are you still here? You are a successful business man why not move to Nigeria?? I will visit any country but I don't want to live anywhere else! And tell me again what exactly are we behind in again??? This country is a good place for anyone that wants to better themselves. The black men that want to be losers do so because they choose it!!! So you mean to tell me if you go to college for free and become a nurse that America is so bad. Even hustlers do well if you have street smarts!!! Only people who are losers are people that choose to be losers!!! I could see if your mental or physical health is bad otherwise there is no excuse.

Its not a question preference. Lets take the first 100 years of AA under slavery, before massa began raping black wmen, it must have been relative stability between black men and women.
How can you say there must have been relative stability between bm and bw? They were slaves. There is no lower existence in human form than a slave. And there were rapes of bw from the beginning to the end ..I do not believe however rapes were as common once slavery once firmly established in regards to bw from the slave owners because it was considered extremely low class and there is no way those slave owners, in the beginning, would have risked their elite status being known for sexing their slave women. Because of the business of slavery, slave women were given the best protection possible at that time because of the nature of the business.

Then pop, pop came out the mulattoes. What do you think happened black men wanted piece of that exortic ass as did some black women want a piece of the exortic mulatto O'tool.
It's really sad that such a heart wrenching existence is being reduced to such pettiness.
Asho wrote:
<quoted text>

The relationship between the black and woman was never the same.
I would love to know how the relationship really was back then between bm, bw and children. Because of the colonization of Africa and mass enslavement, I truly have questions regarding their bond and would love to know if a bonded man and woman can be enslaved.
Asho wrote:
<quoted text>

Tomake matters worse massa gave preferential treatment to the mulattoes.
I think that's even overblown. We see this today with some light skinned blacks believing they are getting preferential treatment over darker blacks and I simply don't see wp caring a whole lot.
Asho wrote:
<quoted text>

This fcked up blacks completely. That is were the "hate" or envy between light skin and dark skin originates. black women became the Oprahs , as a kid, wanting to tape her nose so she can look white.
Interesting. Never heard of nose taping but that sounds more like envy of ww than light skinned bw.

Black men to this day are chasing the Light skin girls. Leaving their natural partners out in the cold. Whitey is to blame though.^_^
Light skin bw or light girls? There is a difference. But I don't believe they are leaving their "natural" partners out in the cold. They are leaving themselves out in the cold as to what true benefit do they gain by elevating a group of people above themselves?? That's genocide. But it's a choice they are choosing to make.. No one is to blame if that's simply who they want. Certainly not "whitey".

I agree with that. but, There are different layers of "fredom." you can be free to criticize the president here, etc..which in some countries will get you beheaded, but you looking at freedom from a narrow point of view. A black man in america can go to school and become this or that, but most of the time his skills will be used in white owned corporations to benefit white people, if he tries it any other way he will get shut down..that aint freedom. whether you rich or poor, if you're black in America you're not free in the true sense of the word.

I maintain tone has little to do with actual beauty. There are some people with great skin and some with crappy skin. Janelle Monae to me has the perfect dark skin complexion but how common it is nowadays, I'm not sure. Kelly also complimentary skin tone and I believe represent darker skin well.

But any skin, regardless of race or tone, which looks dry is extremely unappealing. People need to know moisturizing at any age is the best way to get and/or maintain good skin.

This is a subject you and I certainly agree on. I'm so thankful I was born in this country...especially when viewing the choices of where I could have just as easily been born.

??..I know lots of black guys who own businesses. However, I suppose those who are trying to open businesses and then undermine the system we all live under, they would probably face the brunt of government and rightfully so. This country gives a great deal of leeway for culture enhancements and personal developments but it can't allow it to the point of ruining the fabric of the country either. This should be common sense.

What does living in two different parts of the world have to do with being "qualified to judge" anything? If you see something for what it is, it is what it is.

Of course we're all thankful to be here. Your founding fathers, and the ones today, murdered, stole, robbed the wealth of other nations of the world to be where you are, a superpower with the best technology, etc...the point is people come here because you destroyed their countries, otherwise they would not have a problem staying or going home.
