We Come In So Many Shades - But Why Is This So Negative Now?
When I was younger I was tormented in school because of my darker skin color. People are so stupid these days. We should be proud to be a race of many colors. I hate the fact that-When you ask a light skinned person..."What color are you?" They say "I'm a yella or caramel." WTF is a yella?? Is that even in the dictionary? It doesn't matter-you are African American! There are so many guys who are black as night but won't go out with a girl because she's brown skinned or dark skinned and their mom's and sisters are dark. How would they feel if their moms and sisters were considered ugly by other men because of their skin color? It's ridiculous. I even have some light skinned friends who think they are superior to me because I am darker than they are. I can't even go out with them because they hate when guys give me attention. I bet you won't ever catch a white man saying this about white women- "Oh, I will never date her because she's too tan." At least I've never heard any. And people try to criticize me because I haven't dated inside my race for at least 3 years. It's because (especially down south-Thanks to our "music") some men will not date a girl if she is dark skinned. It disgusts me. Our people have been complaining since slavery time about being put into boxes and catergories. Slave owners used to favor light skinned people more than they did dark skinned people. And here we are.....2008 and we're doing the same thing.
