I cannot help my skin complexion.
What annoys me? Dark skinned AA constanly treated me badly because of my light skinned. Experiencing rude comments, verbal attacks, accusations about how my life is better because of my light skinned. Wake up, hun. All AA experience the same type of racism, discrimination, and hatred daily. I think light skinned AA have it worst. We are hated by dark skinned AA because, Dark skinned AA do not like themselves, or their color and really want to attack the white man but seems to be consumed with fear. Advice? Love your dark skin, your skin coloris beautiful, embrace it. And light skinned AA experience so much hatred from White Americans because it reminds them of the rapes of black women fron their men, it challenges their own genitic make up, because no one in this country is 100% anything, and it challenges the idea of race.
Even Oprah talked about how a light skinned AA, who could pass in the past, refuse to let her sleep in her mother's home. This does not make any sense to me. If Oprah was not allowed in the Land lady's home, why would her mother be allowed in. The realilty? Oprah's mother was not a mother, and did not have a true connection with her kids. However, when a white lady equated Oprah's looks to a puppy dog (a dog),lol. She took it as a complete compliment. Honestly, I thought that was brave of Oprah to do so. Because of the time, in the early 1950's, racist ideals were still believe, and the White lady's intentions was more important than what she said, and I admired Oprah for that. But, I know, if that White woman was a light skinned Black woman, said the same thing, with the same exposure to racism and how it affects everyone negatively, Oprah would have not saw her intention, but took her comments as an attack.

When I was younger, my closest friend was the prettiest girl in my class. Her mother, dark skinned AA, constantly told her how "black and ugly" she was and no one would want her. I could not believe it, I constantly told my friend that was not true, but instead of realizing her mother's human faults, she blamed all Light Skinned Black people. Amazing.
My opinion? Love yourself, embrace your color, understand your color is the color of Mother God, because light skinned AA are not the enemy, hatred is.

Even though I am light skinned myself Dark Skinned African Americans have faced their fair share of discrimination from ligther skinned african americans as well(i.e. the brown paper bag test). I'm not sure how prevelant this was back then, like if it was institutionalized, but it existed nonetheless.

I think that dark skinned and light skinned african americans lately have been having their disagreements.

I think we all need to take a step back and realize our faults in this matter, and stop with the dam division based on skin color.

I do not agree. I think, in our culutre, we excuse Dark skinned AA hated, verbal attacks, disconnections, etc. Because they are Dark Skinned. We also do the same to Black males, not challenging them, women devaluing themselves because of the discrimination he faces, that we all face. I was hated for my light skin by my mother. My mother was beautiful, the most beautiful woman I have ever saw,lol. But, she did not connect with me, but she connected with my brother, solely because of his skin color. She use to call me 'color struck', I thought I was better, etc. While she tried to bleach her skin when she was younger. I get it. Prejudice fycks everyone up. Like Cacausion prefer blondes, hiding their true genetic make up, to emmulate an ideal of 'whiteness, purity. But, in this country, everyone is genetically mixed. Since White America do not want to deal with it, hide from it, then Black people will hide from it, not deal with it. Because Black people tend to go along whatever the white man set for them. I have had dark skinned AA, hate me as soon as I walk in the door, without knowing me, without saying hi. I have had my mother, come into my room at night, telling me my light skin was inferior. No one talks about this. No one will deal with it. Why? Because it goes against what we think of race in this country, what we think of good and bad in this country. I have seen Dark skin parents tell their children they are black and ugly. No one challenges this, no one talks about this, but if the community ASSUMES a light skin AA THINKS (not know, but THINK), they are prejudice, they are crucified. My opinion? Love yourself, stop playing the victim, embrace all people, all things, all races, all cultures, all colors. Dark skin AA, love youself, and embrace everyone. Because holding on to any type of hatred limits everyone, yourself, etc. If Dark skinned AA love themselves, everyone else will follow, believe that.

But I do agree with you on that point. Unification. Period. Stop dividing. Now, I do not care, if they hate me or not. My heart has completely harden. My wish? That Dark skin AA would love themselves, stop hating so much,and realize that prejudice is an unnatural situation and it effects everyone is screwed up ways. Thanks @Carmiana.

Ok only in the minority groups skin color matter. In the white community, they do not fight against or discriminate against each other because one is paler than the other. Only blacks and hispanics (of all cultures) compare skin complexions to one another. You all don't get it huh! They have distroyed your minds into thinking that your skin tone is not important. They send bleaching creams and perms in your communities telling you to whiten your skin and straighten your hair. Meanwhile, these idiots are running around baking in the sun trying to achieve your golden brown or bronzed complexions. They spend money on spray tans. What is the matter today in 2011 almost 2012 that you blacks have to fight over skin color? Why does it still matter if your skin is whiter or lighter than a darker or medium toned person? Why o why are you blacks still crying over colorism to compare light to dark or medium complexions? GET OVER IT LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!!! Geez black people are something else...

I do not agree. I have seen darker hair Cacausion women run to the beauty shop to bleach their hair blonde. I have seen Cacausion women in court cases, on tv shows, with dark hair, and the first think they do, is dye their hair. Why? Because Blonde is preferred. It is the illusion of white superiortiy, a pure race, genetically pure that promotes this. Blondes are treated better, have better treatments in stores, in court cases,etc. When Cacasion women with dark hair, they can pass for Latino, hispanic, etc. And they do not want that. I look at Elvis Presley. He was so gentically mixed. With AA and Native features, but in his country he was considered White. Why? To appease the White society. Elvis Presely was noctunal, he stayed out of the sun. Why? Because when he tanned, he looked like an ethinic man. To assume that Dark Skin, Light Skin only effect minorities is child like. You are focusing on sterotypes and not the truth. Caucasions constantly try to hide their genetic roots, but everyone can see them, but in this country we have to pretent they do not exist. Grow up. All shyt stinks, prejudice effects everyone in this country. No one is above it.

Wow this is a touchy topic, but it's been hitting me at home lately.

I was considered light skin coming up. My mother is dark and my father was light. I was the youngest of three, with both my older brother and sister being dark. In other words, I took after my father. When I think about it, I was the one always catching more hell than my year brother, who is a year older. It seems like I was always the one that had to do the most fighting or the one that was always coming close to it. When my brother started liking girls, it seems like he hated me since. Although we always loved each other, his jealousy shows to this very day, while my mother always ignored this. It's like she always had this special understanding towards him. When I fought him back, she would punish both of us, and never addressed how he was allowed to treat me in her own house.

When he started liking girls, it seemed like most of our dark skin friends were always trying to fix him up for dates and build his confidence, meanwhile putting me down for every little pimple on my face. My father was a very handsome man. He always looked like he had some Arab in him. That trait runs on my fathersÂ’ side of the family. By taking more after my father, it seems like most of the dark skin brothers treated me kind of negative because of it. When it came to darker skin blacks who didn't know me, they would respect me more once they seen my dark skin brother.

I believe this light skin - dark skin thing got rooted in my two siblings when my parents had this bad argument, when I was about six. It left my mother crying, and my father left the house for a drive. I remember my mother hugging the three of us telling us my father was a sick man, and that the only reason she married him was because he was light skin from the north, and she was naive from the south.

I remember when my brother got into dating age, he was telling my mother things like light skin girls like dark skin boys, right in front of me. And she wouldn't even correct him by telling him not to get too caught up in that light skin - dark skin phenomena, especially when he had a light skin brother (me), and a host of light skin relatives on my fathersÂ’ side.

What disturbs me today is, after my father passed away, my mother began making statements like fair skin people age faster than dark skin people. Now she says things like, light skin people always had advantages over dark skin blacks. Not too long ago, Michael Eric Dyson came on CNNs' "Black in America" making that dumb statement that he had advantages over his younger dark skin brother, who wounded up in jail for murder. My mother gave this man credit for having enough guts to admit this. Then I exploded asking her how come nobody has the guts to talk about how many dark skin blacks show jealousy towards light skin blacks, even wanting to fight them at times. I could have brought up my brother who fits this description, but I didn't.

I don't think it ever had anything to do with a lot of dark skin blacks hating themselves. I think it had more to do with like I said, dark skin blacks being jealous of light skin blacks. Now to be jealous of someone who is light skin and good looking is bad enough. But to be jealous of someone because they are light skin only is stupid. And it's even more stupid when light or dark skin black women try to date dark skin brothers to even things up. And you wonder why our people are so messed up.

Anyone who believes light skin blacks have favor over dark skin blacks, just think about Malcolm X, Huey Newton, Louis Farrakhan, etc... Ask yourself how much white people love these guys. And think about all those old photos of brother hanging from trees wearing ties.

The only light skin blacks I see that may get any favor for being light skin are the ones who have a rich parent, if they claim them. These blessing don't often get passed down to the black great grandchildren, or grandchildren. It didn't during slavery and it don't today. The most it got you in slavery was the opportunity to be a house Negro. The house Negroes children usually had to start all over. Didn't we see roots? By the way, most of us are their decedents. I myself am a descendent of Kunta Kinte, and a relative of Alex Haley. Can you imagine a light skin black having a poor white parent. I know one, and he still lives in the slums. I never met one that was rich. Ask Barrack Obama.

With all said, I love all my people. I have dark and light skin people in my family. We lived in the ghetto together. But we need to get a grip before we start fighting within our families because of skin. Now that would be divesting, my dark skin cousins at odds with my light skin cousins. What's crazy about it is, there's no standard definition of light skin these days. So people are actually arguing about nothing. My mother, she's just going through a phase. Meanwhile, I owe her everything.

In other words, the company must protect African-Americans from other African-Americans.

The paper bag test

Each year, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission receives about 85,000 discrimination cases, a phenomenon to be expected in a society that touts itself as a "melting pot."

Many of these cases involve the complaints of minority groups against majority groups. We rarely expect a member of a minority group to discriminate against someone else in the same group. But that is exactly what happens among African-Americans.

More than any other minority group in the United States, blacks discriminate against one another. The discrimination, called "colorism," is based on skin tone: whether a person is dark-skinned or light-skinned or in the broad middle somewhere.

Most African-Americans refuse to discuss this self-destructive problem even in private. According to the EEOC, though, the number of such cases are steadily increasing, jumping from 413 in fiscal year 1994 to 1,382 in 2002, a figure that represents about 3 percent of all cases the agency receives yearly.

The most recent case making news in the black press involves two employees of an Applebee's restaurant in Jonesboro, Ga., near Atlanta. There, Dwight Burch, a dark-skinned waiter, who has left the restaurant, filed a lawsuit against Applebee's and his light-skinned African-American manager.

When slavery ended, light-skinned blacks established social organizations that barred darker ex-slaves. Elite blacks of the early 20th century were fair-skinned almost to the person. Even today, most blacks in high positions have fair skin tones, and most blacks who do menial jobs or are in prison are dark. Believe it or not, popular black magazines, such as Ebony as Essence, prefer light-skinned models in their beauty product ads.

Now for the irony of ironies: Applebee's has added a protection, along with cultural sensitivity training, against skin-tone discrimination to its antidiscrimination policies.

In other words, the company must protect African-Americans from other African-Americans.

Sad to hear, I mean there's a lot of color struck people here in my area and from the looks it does seem like light skins have it better in this society as far as defining beauty. Here light skin girls no matter fat ugly or sloppy can still pull any black boy and don't get talked about badly like dark skinned girls, but because I live in neither one shoes I find being of caramel complexion its hard to relate either sides. Since I'm not light skinned I try to relate to dark skinned girls, but they look at me like I wouldn't understand and categorizes me to the other side. It sucks we can't see eachother as equal, but this is all thanks to the slavery mentality, so Idk if it will ever end :(

That's one of the major problems I was talking about. No one can define who is light skin these days. You would have probably been considered light skin in the sixties.

I know after slavery they used the comb test. If the comb could slide through your hair, you passed the light skin test, a harder test than the brown paper bag test. Most of this crap took place in the south.

The lighter skin blacks you see in these higher positions, most of them are sell outs, and they don't think light the rest of the black people. We have a lot of that going on today, even with dark skin blacks. You could argue that the only reason Barrack Obama is president instead of a dark skin black man is because of his complexion. But I submit to you that he is there because they knew what kind of black man he was, the kind that would never take a real stand for blacks. Sounds so much like most of the high ranking black supervisor on the jobs today, dark ones included.

I'm not trying to single out dark skin men, but only twice was I ever set up for termination. Both times it was the white man using a dark skin black man against me. Then they would also get rid of their dumb butts.

I always been a man who stood up for what was right. That's how my family raised us. Who do you think the white man would prefer for president? Louis Farrakhan or Barrack Obama. They'd put in Flavor Flav before they'd put in Louis Farrakhan. Regardless of skin tone, the only way your going to move up in this system is to be a yes man. So if you see a light skin person in high places, you know what kind of light skin person they are...Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, etc...

Yea I see the hate on both sides. I definitely see the hate that darker black women have for lighter black women, then that in turns makes some lighter black women hate darker black women.

All this needs to stop on the real.

I cannot believe that I am hearing my story. I truly understand what you went through and are going through. My mother loves the Oprah Winfrey Master Class, in which a Light skinned AA, supposely said that Oprah was not allowed to go inside because of her dark skinned. Honestly, Oprah is seeing this through a child's eyes, meaning she did not get the entire picture. If Oprah was not allowed, why was her mother allowed. That did not make any sense to me. I asked my mother, she did not say a word. My opinion? Oprah's mother was not a mother, she favored her children, and even with Oprah's new half sister, you can tell her mother did not really connect with her daughter and did not want to. But, Oprah's new half sister wanted her mom, you can just tell. So, I just discovered that Oprah's mother was not a mother.
I agree with you . I think that Dark skinned AA are severely jealous of Light Skinned AA. Recently I saw my mother, staring at a picture of my Aunt, she is Light skinned and the hatred that came on her face, and envy. I could not believe. I think, Dark Skinned AA people hold on to being a victim, hold on to hating us, for something that is not in our control.
There are many reasons why Dark skinned AA hate light skinned AA. One of the reasons, I agree with you. Complete jealousy. The second reason, I think it is self love. If you love yourself, understand that AA are the original people, and Dark skinned AA emulates the Mother God, and the true orgin of life, I think they would love themselves. Also, I feel that Dark skinned AA should never tell their children, who are Dark skinned they are ugly and black. My friend's mother said that, and I could not believe it. What we don't talk about is Dark skinned AA, own self hatred.
I am so sorry that your mom constantly attack your light skin, saying that you are going to age faster, and accepting your brother's abuse of you. I went through the same thing. My Dark skinned mother, telling me that I preferred my father because he was light skinned, that I preferred my aunt because she was light skinned, I was 5. I did not care about any of that, I just need a mother.

And they constantly say Light skinned AA were houseslaves. Who give a fyck!!, they we slaves. I do not understand that slave mentality. And there is so much miss information about things like that. My great grandfather could pass for White, but he was treated so poorly by White people, he picked their cotten, and his light skinned brother was killed. But, no one talks about that, no one accepts the fact that light skinned AA have to deal with prejudice from all angels. From Blacks, from Whites, from society, period.
My heart? Is completely harden.

I do not agree. Dark Skinned AA is looked at as the complete victim. But when Light Skinned AA people are attack it is accepted. When light skinned AA support our neighborhoods, schools, march, etc. It seems to be ignored. My mother's principal at her school was a Light Skinned AA man. He did everything for his students, books, trips, and paid for things out of his pocket. It was a small town,lol. What did not mother and uncle say about their principal? They did not light him, "He is just light skinned, piss color." I was insulted, and felt hated by my own family. In our community, no one talks about this. No one talks about Dark skinned AA own self hatred. No one talks about how Dark skinned parents, constanlty degrade their children dark skinned instead of embracing it.
When they are Dark skinned AA, I am hated as soon as I come through the door. Without knowing me, without saying hi to me, without understanding me. When they see me with a Dark skinned relative, I am respected, and a little accepted. I am so tired of it. I cannot be darked skinned, like Dark skinned AA cannot be light skinned, except it. Embrace who you are, love your self, love your dark skinned, and people will follow along.
My great grandmother was Dark skinned, she pulled me to the side and said Dark skinned people are evil. Stay away from them, they will always hurt you and hate you. I did not believe, I felt she was older, grew up in a generation where her race was completely degraded, and that was the result of it. We are all human, and no one is above it, no race, no gender. I understood her. I loved her. She loved me. But she did not know how to love herself, because her society hated her.
Like I stated earlier, my heart? Is harden. I do not try anymore. If Dark skinned AA hate me, that is fine. I do not care anymore. I just hope, they would began to love themselves, because all of AA people are so beautiful.

You know lightskin people created colleges and jobs and excluded darkskin blk people right? I mean there is a history there, thats why the two groups have this issue. I do get what you are saying I think lightskin people are treated bad now. Especially light skin women the situation just seems so hopeless.

Ive seen some darkskin people treat the lighter kids better then the darker kids and that fuels animosity between the two.

Like say for instances my kids are treated good by people in my family while my dark skin nieces get treated like crap.

I caught my dark skin sister skin bleaching.
