<quoted text>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.
EXACTLY!!!!!
What are the other options???? I'm glad I was born in a rich country and I don't have to suffer like other people do!! America has its problems but compared to other countries we got it easy. In this country you can choose to go to school and better yourself or you can choose to live off the government. Either way you will never know what it's like to starve or live like those poor people in brazil in flavelas. Or it's 2013 and you still have a QUEEN, or you don't have any rights and have to cover yourself from head to toe!! Or it's war every other day or you come from a Caste system and your dads a farmer so you have to be a farmer and can NEVER move up unless you Move to another country

<quoted text>Lol. It don't matter if you don't look totally white, but the fact is light skin people have more white in them, and the main thing these dudes that go for white women are attracted to is the light skin itself so you do have that in common with white women.
LMAO!!! NOT TRUE so you mean to tell me that a dark skin black man marries a light skin black woman and they have three kids. One child takes her dads dark complexion, the other child comes out brown skin and the last child comes out light skin like mommy!!! All three kids have the same parents but the light skin child has MORE white in her than the other two YET they have the exact same parents???? Lmao!! It's called genetics!! This union is VERY common in the black community a dark skin brotha with a light skin wife/baby momma!!! TRY AGAIN

<quoted text>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.
Great Point!

Personally I would rather for us to be self sufficient. Some of our entertainers are a prime example of why self sufficiency is very important. Many of them are puppets who have sold their soul in a satanic industry because this is were the money is. Basically this reveal who the elite really is and who are responsible for our nations wealth. That's why all the nations suffer the same fate because wealth has been giving to immoral PPL. Plus America has pretty much destroyed The African American family, destroyed our culture and traditions & have taught many of us too hate ourselves. Should we all overlook this or forget about this because some of us has money now?? Sure America is wealthy but they NEVER wanted us to reap any of the benefits.

So can I safely say both dark and light skinned black women feel inferior or hate self because successful black men prefer and are marrying the real Mccoy, white women? How about dark skinned women feeling plain threatened by the attention light skinned women take away from them because black men have been conditioned to think light is better. That does that equal to self hate, does it?
I don't feel threatened by anyone because I only need ONE husband !!! I'm going to marry TIM or CAP lol! J/k but anyway. THERE IS NO EXCUSE to treat someone like shi that hasn't done anything to you!!!! No excuse at all I don't care who you feel threatened by.!!!!! You don't get a pass for being a jealous hatin beyotch just because some BM want lighter women take that out on them date IR or something but I should not have to deal with you fuced up attitude problem because TYRONE wants me over you! Grow up and find someone who loves you for you!!!!

<quoted text> no I'm not bitter I actually feel sorry for them because you have got to really hate yourself to treat a person who hasn't done anything to you like shi because they get more attention than you!!! Or are more desired than you!!! I will give you an example in my opinion some men really desire white women above all! I don't treat white women like shi or make rude mean comments to them or try to start a fight with them just because alot of men want them over me simply because she is white! That's childish!!! It's always shows deep rooted insecurity!!! Also don't try to make it like I'm the bitter bad guy! The REAL question is wtf is wrong with some of them????
Before you pity someone else, pity yourself first. I have plenty of stories I could also tell which certainly aren't favorable toward light skinned bw but I choose not to go there because I've had way too many good interactions and bad interactions which had not a thing to do with skin tone. Even in the documentary I didn't see where all of this hate was spoken of toward light bw..I only recall one darker bw saying they did mean things to light bw.

Many bw I know, such as myself, certainly recognize and agree lighter skin is favored period when it comes to men and I don't know anyone who blames light women for being favored--although I have seen comments by you throwing shade on whites, including ww for being favored. But just because one group isn't the preference nor the standard with men doesn't then equate to not finding their place in other areas of life. Some of you don't seem to be able to see past that.

I understand what you saying, but in your example, the light skin child got the light skin from the light skin mother. but that that light skin mother had a parent who was also light skin, and her grandparent, great grandparent, etc got their light skin from a white man back in the day..you know that, so don't front. Yea it's genetics but light skinned blacks have more of the white gene so when they have kids sometime one of their kids inherit it. Genetics can be crazy like that. Sometime you can have a black person with two black parents who both have afro so-called nappy hair, but somehow he/she came out with loose curls, wavy, or straight hair, so how would that happen? It would mean that person inherited it from some great grand native american or whatever other non-black race down the line in his family tree...but somehow that gene came up generations later..it happens.

<quoted text> 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.
Vacationing is not the same as living somewhere else, typical brainwashed American. I stay here only because my kids are here and I don't want to be that far away from them, otherwise yes I would be living in another country you best believe that. Germany for one is a better place to live than America, Italy for another. And as usual a BW who has no clue about what evils BM face in this country. Our buildings here are new compared to Europe and this country is still behind, also this country owes billions or dollars to China and other countries. Also our education system is one of the worst in the world. Like I said you need to get out more.

I'm from that union. I'm light like my mother, but I've never really wondered how I would have felt if I had been a dark skinned girl, with a father with a clear preference for light skinned females. If dark skinned girls are getting victimized about their looks,it must be hard knowing your father also buys into the upliftment of light skinned females too.

<quoted text>
It's not as simple as where we are born for us. We don't know who we once were, so we don't appreciate what we have lost. To say you're thankful to be born in America under the circumstances of how this came to be, means you are saying you are thankful for slavery.
That is the conclusion, isn't it? I think this is why it's taken me almost a lifetime to admit it to myself and then others that after all I know now. I have no choice but to be thankful, as the other options are certainly not desirable for a bw. Sometime the truth is ugly.
Shalimarr wrote:
<quoted text>

Are AAs now thankful to the white and Arab men for slavery? and do you have the right to be thankful that your ancestors endured slavery when you don't have any real idea of what they suffered and what they were forced to leave behind?
Slavery was a disgrace. I'm one of the few blacks on this forum who has said it. I'm angry with my ancestors for allowing it and imo, they've sold out all blacks, forever. I don't think blacks will ever be free from it. We are simply not lucid enough.
Shalimarr wrote:
<quoted text>

I hear people who never had a father,say it doesn't matter. But they only say that because they don't fully understand what they missed out on having.
Sometime you must concentrate and be grateful for what you do have instead of concentrating on what could have been or what you've supposedly lost. Lots of folks were raised with their dad and he beat them, abused them and made their lives pure hell. Some things were simply not meant to be.
Shalimarr wrote:
<quoted text>

You may have been thankful to be an Igbo girl, doing traditional dances, living with your extended family,speaking your language and eating pounded yam. Living in a country among 200 million blacks, may have been much healthier and better for you than being a minority in America.
I have no doubt that would have been beyond a beautiful sight and a soul fulfilling ecstasy. But we don't have it, never had it and won't ever it. It's gone. It's done. Time to move forward because nowadays they are mostly under the rule of others and living in extreme poverty.
Shalimarr wrote:
<quoted text>

At my job today a Youruba (Nigerian) woman had an appointment and she was deaf. She had only become deaf a year ago and had not yet learned to lip read. She could not lip read anything said in English. But she said her family had not learned sign language, because she can lip read anyone speaking her Nigerian language. She has lived in the Uk for most of her life,but she can't lip read us, but she can lip read her mother tongue.
I am never thankful for the results of slavery. I don't know if my female ancestors were repeatedly raped or had their children sold away from them. Maybe they had children in Africa and were transported away from their children. Were any of my male ancestors castrated, starved, beaten to death? How can we be thankful when we don't know what the price was?
I feel your pain Shalimarr. I do. But there is absolutely nothing we can do. As you've said, the questions are torturous and because of that it keeps many of us stuck trying to "honor" them through non conformance or adapting other goofy standards which are against our environment. I've just come to the conclusion that whomever they were, they probably wouldn't want to see us not taking advantage of opportunity to avoid the hell they were in. I hope they'd want us to take advantage of freedoms wherever and whenever we can.

There is nothing we can do for the past. The past is done.

Not really because it just becomes normal. You don't expect anything different because you just grow up like that. Sometime you may hear some things which may be hurtful, but such is life. Nothing is perfect.

Not everyone with light skin is like that because of whites. Genes break down over time. Albinos are a great example of this.
