yeah..i don't see what the big deal is either. if they don't want dark skinned blacks, such is life. there are a lot of black guys who feel the same.

i read this story a few days back. and i guess we have to look at it like this...when they are casting for actors they have the right to look for what they consider the fairest to the least attractive. they discriminate in hollywood all the time. how often do u see actresses like queen latifah or gabby sidibe getting serious roles? or even back in the day roseann aronold? because they are selling an image they have the right to sell whatever image they choose to sell. it is up to US as the consumer to either buy or not buy the product. either way...it was well within their right to make that request. it would be no different if they said they weren't looking for a redhead and only wanted blondes. we gotta stop calling the race card on everything. sometimes it's valid...and times like these...it's pointless.

Come on, keep it real.

Even the dark ones hate their curse.

The lighter ones are a tad cleaner and most of them can read.

Just look at that light skinned half-caste some white folks placed in our white house.

They couldn't bring themselves to vote for those phony reverends jerkson and shiftless.

I Guess even they think dark ain't cool.

Let's be serious here. It can go both ways for any race of people having a nasty skin color.

Come on,keep it real.

Whites have their green veins and nasty wetdog smelling white skin they hate.

That's is where the tanning salons come in and save them. They get tans to hide their nasty pale skin!=)

I for one, don't like white pale skin, it's sickening to me. It's like seeing a sick patient on meth or HIV in a mental institution.

They will die to have our skin color and will brag about getting a nice tan color,when they still smell like dog, when they get wet. LOL!
