OH' wow now blacks are on here debating on whether we are black NOW! stop listening to the white man and his interpretations of us people ''REMEMBER'' his soul purpose is to divide when will you Negros wake up and see or understand anything.

While we are on here debating if we are black or not, and trust me you are black this culture stealing bandit is over there in Egypt (Kemet) rewriting our history, and painting his pale image on the tomb walls.

Because their not! Lightskin blacks are mix down with white people or other races. Lightskin blacks are what the white people or the mexican people did not want. So they threw them into the black race but light skin blacks are really not black their mixed. But we accept them because we have been accepting them since slavery. When the white men was raping and having sex with the africans women making mixed childern
they did not want these babies so they threw them into the pure black race and disowned them as being part white.
And what do you claim to be while you're on here spewing this B/s some world renowned dumb azz or something? let me brake it down to you' most light skin blacks have 2 black parents hue in skin tone does not mean much of anything, light skin blacks'''' are how it is understood get! light skin blacks are light skinned blacks period.

Now if you want to say mixed with Chinese or any other ethnic group then fine, and even then the black gene is always dominant so that is how we blacks understand and connect with each other, now...... just because whites have weak genes that gets completely destroyed when mixing, then that is the problem for whites.

We are a very mighty black nation if only we would have the courage guts and wits to tell the white devil that ''WE NO LONGER EXCEPT YOUR POISON'' then we can become what we once were.

I totally agree with you 100 percent, we as a people just simply have too many of these ignorant very foolish unlearned Negros among us. especially these traits are very common among American blacks it seems as though their only knowledge comes from still blowing' Willy Lynch.

Americans are extremely race conscious and very demanding of race purity from others.

If your light skinned then you are not pure black.The same goes for African Americans who are Caramel, and Chocolate brown.You have to understand that during slavery all of our ancestors were raped so we could breed different skin tones of African Americans.Go and google up the Willie Lynch letter, that'll explain what Im trying to say.
Oh please! Give me a break. I doubt you've been to EVERY african country to support your ridiculous arguement. There are MANY African people with a purely black bloodline (my family included) that just have fairer skin, different textured hair and slight features. This observation is made by an African -living in Africa- who has actually travelled her continent.

You're dellusional if you think you aren't mixed, or if you think they aren't mixed.
If there are people with light eyes or hair in your family, you have some definite white ancestry.
Black people NEVER have those traits unless mixed.
I know you want to believe that "black people have light eyes and hair without being mixed"
but that's a lie.
No true at all. I'm a 100% Black African and in my direct family are plenty light-skinned people. I have three and two sisters. Five of my siblings are light-skinned, meaning they are much lighter than an "average" African, but there is no Caucasoid/White ancestry in my family. This is just part our wonderful African diversity.

In btw.. My mother is light skinned and we are not mixed too... Its ignorance that makes people think all light skinned Africans are mixed... Thats FAAAR from the truth..
Are those the same light skinned black Africans who speak what is called the "click language"? I studied such a tribe of light skinned Asian looking black Africans in anthropology in college,way back when,but I forgot if the name was Khoisan people.

because it is assumed they are mixed with something.

personally for me, light skinned 'blacks' are not blacks in my eyes. they don't go through the same shit dark-skinned persons go through. yes we all have the same struggle, but light skin are treated better and are seen in a more positive light than dark-skinned. so i don't see them as being black.

That's what you think.You ought to talk to more light skinned blacks.We all
assume a lot about others who are different from ourselves. But as a light skinned black,even mistakened for white sometimes,I can tell you that what you say is not always the case.
Have you ever thought about,--that many racists whites prefer blacks to be totally ethnically black in physical features,and is against race mixing?. And so such whites,frown upon blacks who physical show signs of black?white race mixing.
In short, they will accept you easier,because you look black, than they would myself,because I look black/white mixed,and therefore they'll give me more of a hard time than they would give you,or just plain out reject the both of us equally,but certainly not prefer a light skinned black over dark skinned black.

How is anyone PURE these days??? And why is it such a big deal anyway. Lets take Beyonce and her sister SOLANGE both of them have the same parents. A light skin black mom and a Carmel complexion black father. Beyonce came out light skin with light brown eyes (took after her mom) and SOLANGE came out brown skin with a hair texture closer to her dad. So how is one less black than the other? That's so stupid its called genetics. I have even seen dark complexed bi racials with coarse hair all bi racials don't have the typical look of light skin and curly hair.

I agree I have met white guys that wanted an extremly dark black woman ONLY!!! I have also met white guys that made a big deal out of my skin color and curly hair texture so it really depends on the guy. Different people have different tastes. No one has an advantage over the next it's all just based on preference

Well if you asked me, which do most white guys prefer,mixed race looking black women,or ethnically black looking (dark skinned)black women,I would say that from what I see around me every day,I think most white men are with darker skinned black women,in part,due to either availability of dark and light skinned black women,or from plain old preference.
As I said above, I think they do so for both because it is their preference,and also because most black women are dark skinned anyhow (medium to dark brown is considered dark to most people),so that the white guy has more dark skinned black women around to choose from,than light skinned ones. So that in most white guy,black woman couples,married or dating,the black woman is usually dark skinned.
