And then you have some people who are mix but the again we as black are never one color all over. We come in all shades of brown. And people who are meduim brown can appear light skin depending on the light and flash of the camra.
We will never know Beyonce's true color since she gets photoshopped on a daily basis lol.

It was mostly used to describe mixed people, BUT the original definition is argued/unknown.
Over time it took on different meanings, like the one you are talking about..'red' like the tone of an indian. It mostly still means 'mixed'.
ah okay. Either way this skin color attraction, its an obsession, obsesssion! lol i honestly never cared, when i saw a pretty lady she was damn fine regardless of skin color.

I had them for a long time, and it feels heavy. I want to cut it off, but I know my mother wont allow me.

In the end in North America, black is black. Non blacks don't see the spectrum, they see black. If you pass for white your white other wise it's the ODR in action. Even my mom who is pretty much white says she's black. I dunno anymore...too much obsession with this skin colour business.

Don't you people have more pressing issues to tend to? No wonder you people are so divided and have huge problems in your community. You people tear each other to threads. Don't you see that? Just wondering.

ok why do people keep saying Steve Harvey is light skinned when he is obviously medium brown skinned?

I know some peope like to subdivide categories but to me you are either dark skin, medium brown skin or light skinned. I never hear people calling some one caramel, pecan or other rediculous names. I consider any one Cuba Gooding Jr's complexion or lighter as being light skinned.
