Let make this clear. Most black men don't go crazy over lightskinned women. I've been close to too many brothers to know this. You may have that small percentage who prefer lightskin, however that's when these particular brothers be young and practical virgins. By the time they reach twenty, everybody already had a lightskinned girl before, or soon will. Why anybody would think a full grown man would still be stuck on one tone is beyond me, with all these different shades of black.
I still think the white media is behind the light skinned envy campaign, and Hollywood seem to be the ones who use lightskinned women, darkskinned men, and very lightskinned men. But when I go outside, the people who got the best looking partners are the people who stay in good shape themselves. That always worked for me most, and that seem to attract all shades...and ages too, which may or may not be a good thing. A lot of people want to believe it's the skin tone, and I must admit that can help, but staying in shape is the key. I think we all really know that down inside.
True that. Everyone and I mean EVERYONE looks better when in shape. I have been on both sides of this several times. Chubby youngster who got in shape and played football throughout highschool...got out of shape again after college and back in superman shape a few years later.

The difference in the level of people you attract from out of shape to in shape is MIND BLOWING.

Grown men need more than that.
of course I know that , however when it comes to the physical that's the first thing you notice. You can't see a good personality at first glance. There have been countless studies done proving that men are visual creatures young or old.

I can't stand it when you ladies take the comment, or action, of some dumb azz random "herb" black dude on the internet and think that is majority of black men thought. So damn insulting.

It's just funny, because if one white dude says something like "I don't like black women", you will still bet hope against hope that some other white man does, and when that white man speaks/posts it, you rejoice!

Wrong, keep trying I do plenty for black boys in the community since no one wants to help young black boys. I do it one kid at a time but then again you wouldn't know that since you don't know me, lol!!!!!!!!!! I don't need to chase white women if I wanted another one I could get one easily. I am very satisfied with my beautiful wife so stop peddling me to other WW. Once again only diversity at Northwestern is a bunch of Orientals walking around campus.

I said most black men don't value light skin over the others, meaning all colors between dark and very light skin. For the small number who do think that way, a lot off it starts from a handfull of mostly darkskin guys in highschool, but it don't last to long into adult hood. I wouldn't take what some kid commented on world star hip hop as what grown mature adult men think and see.

As far as co-called colorism, it first hit the media through a series Soledad Obrien was doing on CNN, which basically defined colorism as the the white system favoring lighter skinned blacks over darker skinned blacks. I still believe there was a hidden agenda behind that. I know not long after that, she was fired from CNN one way or the other.

maybe where you live but not here!! Colorism is discrimination of a persons skin color no matter if its light or dark. Light skin black women get discriminated against and so do dark skin black women. It's pathetic either way

Black men look for that nice butt first...now you know that.

In otherwords, black people get discriminated against. But when they do it to each other, it just amounts to jealousy on the overall average.

http://www.thefreedictionary.c om/orientals You need to check that Northwestern education it must be a junior college, lol. There are plenty of programs out there supporting black girls(plenty of them funded by that lesbo Oprah Winfrey) so they get plenty of assistance. Not so much for black boys in the community or in the inter cities. This makes me think you never attended Northwestern at all, lol. You need to get out more young lady. Once again I don't care what Black Greeks help not one of them(thank goodness). When BW stop slamming and trying to emasculate young black boys then the gender stuff will stop.

it was a joke dum dum I was trying to talk shi in a fun way but I see you are a tight wad!! Lol actually it's your education I question since you referred to ORIENTALS as a people lol! That cultural anthropology 101 HA!!! Like i said black Greeks help black people we don't discriminate on gender that's so silly!!! And when BM grow up like other men young black boys might actually have a father at home who actually owns up to his responsibility to raise his own child. Bw in turn won't have to be the man and woman of the household and don't you dare blame that on thugs because regular BM abandon their kids too! Maybe not you or a few others on topix but for the most part you run from responsibility maybe it's slavery's fault who knows!!!

Are you saying there are no pretty faced darkskinned women where you live? The first thing a man look at is the face. Not skin tone. So AAM will go for an ugly faced lightskinned woman over a pretty faced darkskinned woman?

So only darkskinned women consider themselves "ugly" and the only ones with major issues. LOL! Reading this post and others reminds of white people not believing black people can be racists. To them it is only whites who can be racists and dish it out. "Black racists?! No way! They are black for christ's sakes!" Blacks can only be jealous of white people. I see the same attitude with you "light skinned black women". Can a darkskinned woman feel better than you without being jealous of you?
Why are darkskinned BW not speaking up for themselves. most of the females posting ijn this thread are so call light skinned, yes?
Im dark skinned, not sure if i apply though coz im british but il sill "speak up as a darkskinned." Anyway i dont think im ugly, I did used to but not really because im darkskineed just becuas i had low self esteem.

Now, i dont think im ugly and nor am i jealous of light skinned ladies and never have been...that would be so stupid.

I have had the stupid comments that i was pretty for a black girl once but i dont pay to much attention to that, on the whole people have just said im pretty and left it at that, so the majority rules.

Ummm i couldnt watch the darkskin documentary because their was so much downloading involved and i got really bored....but i did see the trailers and i do think the women talking were abit ultra sensitive...being darkskin is not a plague and i have had some negative comments mainly from my darkskineed aunt but maybe coz my mum and my sister is lightskinned i didnt get negative comments regarding skin tone much.

I mainly heard that nonsense when i got older and went to university and im sorry to say it came from a few colour struck nigerians.....

End of the day i love my skin tone, wouldnt want to be darker or lighter because i am haapy with what i have.

Black men have only made negative comments about my wieght claiming that i am too skinny and thats about it.
