Saw a comment on some article a while ago and I began to ponder…Ever notice how most of the people in the black community that still bother with that “light skin is better than dark skin” mentality and take it up to the Internet to express their views, (even though we are in 2014, come on you guys really need to grow up (just call yourself black, that’s what you are to everyone anyway)) especially the guys, are either:
a.) Unattractive/not appealing to the girls/guys they’re putting down anyway
b.) Living their life in the struggle with no effort to better themselves
c.) Not as educated as they could be/don’t try to get educated
d.) Usually all the above
Growing up, I’ve actually came across people like this (mostly ignorant teens).
I mean all through middle school I began to notice how lighter skinned females would be portrayed in the media (don’t even get me started on “hip hop” music videos) and I wondered why some of them weren’t as dark as me or even my Indian friend who was a medium brown complexion.
I don’t even remember my main reason for bringing this up…
Just to voice my annoyance/semi-shock that there are still people doing that dark skin-light skin debate now with memes to play around -___-
and the fact that they’re in my age group means that the lesson of self love isn’t being taught to everyone…wonder how the next generation will turn out…
