Are you one of those darker skinned Black people that end up saying this same thing to other people also, Jamaican beauty? It kind of has me wondering, since you are the one that created this thread...

What is your whole fascination with this saying then? I'm sure that you have more than enough suitors trying to beat down your door, that this 'saying' shouldn't even come to mind where you are concerned...???

My point is that I would have believed that you were better than that, and if you looked beyond the question, to the potential answers you were going to receive on this thread, you should have been able to forecast the possibility of there being differing opinions, which may lead to clashes, much to the likes of the ones on here that revolve on whom Jamaican men prefer to take up with, and all that other shit, Jamaican beauty.

Again, I believed you were better than that...you seem like you have a good head on your shoulders, so again, I am still wondering why you would even start up a new thread, with this type of question. Frankly, I don't even think you should care enough to put this question up on this forum...you confident in your appearance and who you are, right? Well...take up with a lucky man that will see these good qualities in you, and leave the other men, that believe that darker skinned Black women are more their fancy, with the women that they want to be with, Jamaican beauty...am I correct here? To each their own, agreed?

yes each to their own there's nothing with wanting to know each others opinions about anything after all this is a worldwide public forum! Also, we are all various shades of black but out of many we are one!

BTS, there's a new documentary that came out this year called "Dark Girls." I've been searching everywhere for a copy of the movie as it has NEVER come to my town.

Anyhow, it's all about the plight of dark-skinned black women in the USA, how black men would RATHER NOT have relationships with them simply because of their dark-skinned color. I saw the trailer on the internet. If you goodle "Dark Girls," it should come up. BTS, it was soooooo sad. These women related stories about how their own families made them feel inferior because of having chocolate skin. Lots of tears, loneliness, just because of the color of their skin.

Then the documentary interviewed black men. And, of course, there is ALWAYS one stupid idiot in every situation. This light-skinned black man gets on camera and says something like this "A dark-skinned girl just looks funny by my side, like we don't fit together right!!!"

Can you imagine this BS?

Then he went on to say he only dates light-skinned black women who have long hair -- no dreads, please!

It's people like him that make me sick to my stomach. We have finally reached a point in evolution where we are again embracing our blackness, and then we discover we still have these ignoramuses out there, making these types of statements. It makes me so angry, I just want to SCREAM!!!

Back in the day, when the "darker berry, sweeter juice" comment came up, it was a way to make dark-skinned blacks feel good about the color of their skin. So many of us seem ashamed to have black skin. Even today, we continue to bleach our skin and look for other ways to hide our blackness.

I know Michael Jackson was considered an icon in his career, but I never really cared much for him -- though I enjoyed his music -- because he seemed to be the type that was always trying to disguise his blackness. One operation after the other t omake his features more white-like. Then he did something to his skin that made him look whiter than white folks!!!

Somebody started some thread about why Jamaicans look so African. Well, what's WRONG with looking African? That's where we come from. Africa is our Motherland.

We've got to STOP letting folks put a divide among us based simply on skin color.

Whatever happened to content of character, no matter WHAT color skin you have?
