Light Skinned AAs make me sick. They are a constant reminder of the mistakes that ouccured in the past.

i don't know. Personally I don't get it. So many black people say that white people treat paler skinned black better than dark skinned but in reality, whites don't really see what the big deal about pale skinned black and darker skinned blacks are. A lot of black people put down on other blacks for being darker skinned. I just don't get it. It's not an accomplishment or anything. It's not like you graduated Harvard.

I'm proud to be brown skin, they have the right to love themselves, come on, What the hell is wrong in the black community?

Really, if some dark people didn't lack confidence so much (the Lil Wayne's syndrome), some light people wouldn't feel different but since many dark skinned ppl feel the need to worship the light ones, some of them do feel superior.

Because light skinned is the most attractive to everyone. Why shouldn't we be proud of being light and attractive to the world? I love my light skin because it's the best looking.

I love my light skin because thats how god made me its as simple as that! You rarely find a girl who is insecure because she is light skin! She may be insecure because she is unattractive! I once knew a girl who was half black but she was so pale you could barely tell she was black so she use to tan to feel. "more black" now she was insecure because no one really knew she was black! She only had one black feature too, she had a black nose but just looked like a white person with a large nose!!!!!

Wow how ignorant

Yes some are but some are not and as for you your name has the word brown in it I didn't click on your picture but I'm assuming your brown skin and you are dark compared to a lot of people and most white people put your skin tone and someone shades darker than you they look at you the same so Idk why you would say they want you to feel bad when brown is still considered a dark skin shade I think you are insecure and want darker people to feel bad just bc you are 2 shades lighter you are the only one counting shades when most people think brown and dark are the same

Get off the high horse its not becoming

I'd like to also add as a mixed women that your skin tone of women are more rude and jealously acting more than dark skin women have been

Dark skin women still carry it with grace brown skin light skin bw are the ones always debating and talking about skin color so who indeed is more insecure

I hate when women think other women are jealous bc of something like this that is proof that you are just trying to feed your ego goodbye
