It's a four-hundred year old story. Black Americans have been conditioned to despise their color, their hair texture, their facial features. And its not only BM that are choosing lighter skinned partners, but successful BW mate up with White and non-Black men. Dark skinned Blacks are subconsciously trying to bred away their darkness by producing far lighter off springs . Blacks will say that they are "Black and loving it". But as we can clearly see, they are not.Why won't dark skinned BM uplift dark skinned BW? I'm sure a huge percentage of dark skinned BM are birthed by dark BW... Lots of black stars in music and sport are dark skinned BM. I think dark skinned BM hold a disproportionately large amount of the Black male wealth. Yet these men choose to share their wealth and status with light skinned black and non-black women.
Why do they leave women who look like their mothers and sisters out in the cold, at the bottom of the society, never on the red carpet never in the front row of fashion shows. Never in mansions.
Why when dark skinned BM escape poverty and embrace wealth, why do they systematically and purposefully exclude the exact female versions of them? Why aren't dark skinned BW's lives seeing more wealth and glamour, when it is the male versions of them who are the BM getting rich and famous???
Dark skinned BM could fight colourism and elevate dark skinned Blacks, if they would only take dark skinned women UP with them as their queens, instead of leaving them behind and chasing the redbones and Non-Blacks.
Barack Obama married a Dark skinned BW. But BM like him are few and far between.
