Light skin black girls annoy me because they seem to cause problems in the black community just like the thugs and wannabe gangsters. I've noticed that ligtj skinned black women are always bigging themselves up and their closer to Caucasian features while putting down more common black features. My problem with this is that I've seen the effect it has on darker black girls.

I don't know, but some of them do seem to think they are better than their light skinned counterparts in many ways. This is coming from a light skinned man.

There were a few light skinned women that used to post here a while back who used to boast among each other about how lucky they were to be light skinned, and how oppressed all other black people were, including light skinned men.

im not surprised.
My girlfriend is what you can define as light skin. I wasn't even fully aware of her skin tone until she pointed it out with great pride. To me she was just black. I don't really mix with black people a lot, so I've never been aware of how dark I am until she pointed it out. I swear, it's one of her favourite things to talk about.
What bothers me about this is because i don't like how black people put other black people down, while boasting about things that's more associated with white people. AND if she's been like this with me, I can imagine what she's been like with female members of her family and other women she knows who are darker.

Then again, another thing I've noticed is older black (especially African)women praising their children or people In general who are light for their skin. I guess that's where light skinned girls get their egos from.

Black people disgust me.

Stupid colorism thread started by a troll (most likely). This "debate" is played.

Both light skinned and dark skinned (and every tone in between) gets picked on so they have to resort to being prideful rather than ashamed. You're playing right into the slave masters hands by entertaining this "who's better" debate in 2013.

who says I'm a troll? You? Because I'm saying something you don't like?
If you like nike and I like Adidas does that make you a troll?

And this isn't a who's better thread. And it clearly has nothing to do with resorting to being proud rather than ashamed.

Not at all. People are entitled to their opinion. But when the goal is to bash that's when I get annoyed. You also being unregistered can also help the notion of trolling.

Proud vs ashamed is positive vs. negative exposure. They both show the same picture.

LOL, I didn't know Black brits had this problem. LOL!!!!!!

Since I read your experience and in no way am I doubting this I would like to share my experience.

APV is very right in her statements, and I am in complete agreement with her.

Growing up in my neck of the woods, dark skinned girls have a superiority complex and don't bite their tongue saying how much they don't like light skinned girls ( my cousin being the prime example). On the other spectrum most of the light skinned girls seemed a little rough around the edges(i.e always fighting and such), but I never saw them walking around with their noses stuck up in the air at everyone else who didn't talk like them, dress like them, or act like them, like dark skinned girls. Most light skinned girls around my way were very conscious about being conceited because dark skinned girls would with out a doubt make up sh*t like "light skinned girls think they better".

I notice it's always dark skinned folks pointing out someone skin complexion more so than a light skinned person. Where you think the words red bone or yellow bone came from. Most of the time it was dark skinned black men who would talk about light skinned this, light skinned that( Lil Wayne prime example).

I am not saying that all dark skinned people act like this because then that would be a lie. Neither am I saying that all light skinned people are down to earth because there are some who are prejudice. I am simply speaking from my own experience in life and I completely respect yours. Just wanted you to know and everyone else know that no two people are a like neither are their life experiences.

At the end of the day we are all African descent no matter how light, no matter how dark.

This thread is stupid! Everybody knows when a lightskin black gets angry with a dark skin black its obviously common Sense what will be the main two words of choice! This light skin black woman called jer dark husband a tarbaby monkey ass cause he wouldn't. Let her drunk azz drive home from my house. He left her there and didnt come back for her. Some of us are racist. Towards Each other. Off of topix?

This is dumb...my father is light my mother is dark that is the beauty of our race we come in different shades while all others asians, whites, mexicans have a standard boring color without the tanning beds. Black people need to embrace their diversity :)
