Black Women, Skin Color, And The ODR

Black Women, Skin Color, And The ODR

By Chance Kelsey, chancellorfiles.com

Chance: The one drop rule is an interesting pathology that allows a few benefits for the black American race. One of those benefits is the right for a black man or black women to choose a wife, girlfriend, boyfriend, or husband from all types of skin tones. The basic skin tones of the black American race are dark skin and caramel brown skin, some dark and caramel brown skin blacks are mixed with white and other ethnicities too. Then there are those people who are called light skin blacks, whose facial features and skin tones show strong signs of being mixed race. Many of these people are mixed with white, Native American, and other ethnic groups. These so called light skin blacks, they have skin tones that are yellowish, yellowish red, yellowish brown, beige, and whitish. There eyes colors can be brown, black, violet, green hazel, or blue.

Some dark skin and caramel brown black men who are very pro black nationalists, and do things on behalf of black America are married to very light skin women (yellow skin tone or white skin tone). The question that is raised by some blacks is — why is it that when some black nationalist men when they choose a spouse (wife) she is very light skin? Why not a dark skin black woman, or a caramel brown black women? Since these pro black nationalist activist push black is a beautiful color. They married black women with very European features. There have been some pro black nationalist men who have even married white women.

Many black men who write books, produce movies, entertainment industry, music artist, sports athletes, black business owner, black religious leaders, etc are married to black women who are very light skin. This causes many dark skin black women to feel rejected.

 

Question: Does the one drop blood rule (ODR) allow black men to choose woman of light skin tones over dark skin and caramel skin black women?

Question : A dark skin black man and Caramel brown skin black both are accused of favoring white women over dark skin black women. Both men finally get married but the women they marry both are black women with yellowish skin. The Carmel skin black man’s wife has yellow skin, green eyes, and brown hair, and the dark skin black man’s wife has yellowish skin, blue eyes, and black hair, both women have all of the physical anatomy that men like. Both men then claim that they married black women. These women have a lot of European features similar to a white woman. These two black men are still accused by dark skin and even some Caramel skin black women of being color struck.

Both men then say that well we married black women, and under the ODR these women are black, and these black women need black men to marry them, just like you dark skin and caramel skin black women want black men to marry you.

Question: Are these two men in the right or wrong for marrying yellowish skin women who look European instead of marrying dark skin and caramel skin black women?

Is some of the anger black females who feel that they are disregarded because they look less mixed with European justified?

Do you dear reader feel that certain black men, and black women are color struck?

The ODR also allows dark skin black and caramel brown skin black women to marry, and date light skin men, do you dear reader feel there is a double standard meaning a dark skin and a caramel brown skin black man is criticized for dating light skin women, but dark skin and caramel brown skin black women are not criticized for dating light skin men?

How about this, less start calling people mixed race, because it is obvious they are more mixed race than just simply black. A title of mixed race is more appropriate than calling certain mixed race looking people black.

Quetions: Do you feel there is a strong sexual attraction by blacks for light skin men and women?

Question: Do you feel that certain blacks who are dark skin are jealous of light skin mixed race blacks?

Question: Do you feel and think that one of the reason that blacks try to keep the one drop rule (ODR) in place and in practice is because they feel deep in their subconscious minds that light skin is better looking, superior intelligence because of being mixed with white, light skin blacks make the black race look better physically because light skin blacks physically on average look better, and blacks don’t want to be left with just black looking people only, and prefer to have light skin looking people with to give them more choices to choose from when it comes to finding a beautiful light skin woman or handsome light man?

If blacks who are dark skin and caramel brown skin claim to be mixed then why call themselves blacks, why not mixed raced? It would make more sense.

Chance: I feel that one of the reasons dark skin blacks don’t oppress caramel brown skin blacks very much is, because they really feel those people are black. The caramel skin blacks are the true light skin blacks, in many black African countries a light skin black person is caramel brown skin black person. They are lighter than dark skin blacks. Therefore, the yellow, reddish, beige, and white skin blacks in America are really another mixed race group that should be called mixed race, and not black.  

They can claim black if they want but their first primary identity should be mixed race or some name that describes a mixed race person. In the 19th century all mixed race people were called mulattoes. Now of course any light skin black can choose to be called black if that is, all they want to be called. They have that right, but those who wished to be called mixed race should have that right too.

Currently in the western world the European standard of beauty exist. Long ago in many societies (countries) throughout the world dark skin was more admirable than light skin, standards of beauty and traditions change according to the ruling class of people in political power and media.

Nature also prevents certain people from looking like the general standard of beauty that the society they live in praise.

 One of the major problem with black America is, that they have too many people in their racial group labeled black, when some of these people need to be labeled mixed race as their first identity.

This labeling them mixed race can potential cut down on some of the competition, and dislike between dark skin and light skin.

    I do think there is a disadvantage for dark skinned black men when it comes to black women. Seeing this has made me look at other women. If you got to deal with this colorism from your own kind you should deal elsewhere. Some white women, for example, do like dark skinned men and can appreciate the attractiveness.

    I could not see it before but now I am convinced that black women of all shades got some skin color issues. It’s usually against dark skinned men. They have been brain washed well to think light is better. They also want their babies to come out light looking. That’s not pro black to me. It just shows self hate.

    I thought it was all about good looks only, dark, brown, or light. But unfortunately skin color does matter. I though that this was over with from the 80s but still exists.

    I like dark skinned women and I’m dark but many never seem to like dark skinned brothas. Light skin women, some seem cool, but they tend to subconsciously think high of themselves.

    I always knew it was something. I know if you ask light skinned black males they seem to get more play than dark skinned men. They don’t even have to be good looking. I know a light skinned guy who isn’t that good looking and he gets attention from women just because he’s light. So black women are hypocrites. So I suggest brothers move on to other women.

    I would recommend broters who like both complexions of black women to talk to black women in Brazil. Women there like dark skinned men. I, personally, would rather not deal with this skin color issue with black females no more. It’s bad enough dealing with racism.

    There is a double standard when it comes to accusing black men of dating light or white women when black females try to do the same. Pro black fakers who hate themselves. We aren’t just hated by others but ourselves. What a shame.

  2. Spike Lee's light skin wife

    Spike Lee the movie Producer has a light skin wife but very, he claims to be pro black. Go look at the photo of his wife. He chose a light skin woman why not a dark skin wife? This is priceless.

    This is so true Keita, there are double standards, and it is a type of Hypocrisy. Sometimes seeing all the negativity that many blacks direct towards each other is depressing. All of this colorism that exist among black Americans is depressing this why I say there needs to be a mixed race category and certain people should start identifying as mixed race. This could help clear up some of this mess, and as long as blacks are filled with all of these various skin tones that are the result of all of the different ancestries they are mixed with there will always be colorism among blacks as long as everybody with black blood keeps identifying black only.

    Nature and genetics have set it up that the way you look can only be change by cosmetic surgery.

    Personally I like my mulatto self, I love being a mulatto.

  5. Keita

    I don’t know about this setting up a seperate mixed race category. No disrespect, but it sounds silly.

    I feel that I am an attractive dark brown skinned brotha. But my own kind aint down for the brown. As far as I am concerned they can have light skin, white, or latin looking men.

    Dark skinned brothas who’s in the same situation as me should realize things. There are women from other backgrounds that’ll value dark skin.

    I was looking at a picture of you and you seem young. Do you feel that you have advantages becuase you’re mixed or light skinned?

  6. Keita

    Lastly, women from other races, except for some of those racist Hispanics, likes dark skin.

  7. (212)

    In the 4 photos above, the light-skin just looks more appealing to me and Vanessa just looks prettier.

    My preference will not be dictated to me by anyone.

  8. Chance

    From my experience and observations women from all racial groups like men in general regardless.
    I feel also, that because of the high level of testosterone that black men produce this makes black men more masculine, and this masculinity is what is attracting many females. Even a mulatto who has some black ancestry receives some attention because of his black ancestry. Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, Brazilians, and others who are mixed with visible black ancestry also get this type of attention with females. Black ancestry gives you this advantage. Remember too most other racial groups are on average lighter than blacks, so the opposites attract when it comes to sexual attractions.

  9. Vanessa looks like a mime in that picture – too much makeup. That’s a fallacy of making evaluations based on pictures, most photographers are not prepared to photograph black folk and yes it does take a different group of light settings to photograph darker-skinned people. It can make all the difference in the world.

    More to the point, I’m so tired of this complexion thing. I’m sure that there are some complexion issues, how could there not be when fair-skinned is the norm? whatever the case, I am really into dark-skinned women so I say discriminate against them all you want – that just leaves more for me to choose from.

    Oh but you can have the ones with the egregious perms.

  10. Chance

    Separate racial categories are set up all the time, there was a time when there was not Hispanic category on government ethnic census forms but there is one now. There was a time when there was a mulatto category on the government ethnic census form but there is not a mulatto category now.

    Do I get advantages because I have light skin and am mixed? I feel that there have been some situations where yes this has happened to me. As well as other mixed race and light skin people have receive some advantages because of there phenotypes.

  11. Chance

    Rashid, I am tired of the skin complexion thing too, but it keeps coming up again and again. I have addressed it but it keeps coming among blacks, AND I ADRESS IT AGAIN AND AGIN BECAUSE IT KEEPS SHOWING IT SELF. I am opened minded to any woman of any skin color myself.
    But the perms on have to go on certain women you say Rashid. Yeah it is a reality that some women don’t look nice in a perm or a Jheri curl.

  12. Well,Chance, that is because you are mixed. Mixed folks (BLACKS)are more acceptable and ‘tolerable’ by Whites because they feel you have partial allegiance to them. They feel you are ‘SAFE’. Even if you are light, they feel safer. Dark folks remind them of a time when they were beneath our boots, in servitude and our students in the Iberian Peninsula and of the Nubians, Kushites and Zulu for example. What I find interesting is how Black people have all but given up and exclusively date white now. Its Sooooooo In now that its becoming a threat to the dark-skinned Blacks existence. They/We have all but removed the ‘darkie’ from television and movies already. Rappers like JAY Z and KANYE refuse to have a dark women near their video set unless she is an assistant to the director. Black men are more color struck than anyone. We started the whole WEALTH=WHITE WOMAN equation. We want what SUCCESS=WHITEmen have. Thing is, now a trusty Black broad on the leg is the ‘IT’ thing for rich white men. The Wife…remains white!

    The reaction? Kerry Washington (who only dates white), Sanaa Lathan and Will Smith all have interracial love stories (Will’s a interracial superhero story) coming out in the movies. Do we need them? NOT AT ALL. Will Black women like Oprah promote it? OF COURSE…its our mission to be accepted by whites and prove to them we are no longer a threat. We have no AFRIKAN CENTERED perspective on reality. If we did, we would not give a damn what they thought of us because we would be too busy saving out people from decreasing numbers and see the beauty in our vast spectrum. Now that Halle Berry and Eve are FRENCH SANDWICH EATERS (ie; Toss white mens salads) there will be mass defectors from Black relationships into White/Black ones. [See: RHIANNA] I am looking at the NY1 News and within the first 3 minutes they have already shown 1 Black rapist, 1 Black male killer and Barry Bonds. Funny thing…I have yet to hear anything else about that Black woman who was raped and tortured by 6 sick White fucks. ITs mandated…EVIL BLACK MAN…GREAT WHITE MAN!

    BLACK PEOPLE HAVE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME. We are so grateful to our oppressor for sparing our lives and giving us welfare and making the NAACP (yep, Jews financed that bad boy) that we have forgotten or forgiven them for giving us that UNIFIED/ALLIED (sound familiar?) kick in the ass back in Afrika! They are also obsessed with Afrika these days and have the Afrikan thinking that they are saving them (us) from a reality that, in fact…the White man helped cause.

    I have one question though….are we supposed to toss mixed folks in the garbage? People don’t choose their parents. The parents just choose white!

  13. AND TRUST ME…
    THAT JEW IS THE MAIN PERPETRATOR!
    He loves him some Black stuff and Black chicks love him because he has money and power. Plain and simple.

    Who wouldn’t want to reproduce with the mother of the entire human race?

    Black men.

  14. I’ve responded to your blog on my blog. I don’t have an issue with your blog. Rather, with some of the responses.

    @ Godwell,

    Godwell said: I have one question though….are we supposed to toss mixed folks in the garbage? People don’t choose their parents. The parents just choose white!

    My response: No never throw them in the garbage, they are a part of two world one black and one white. This gives them advantages that could bring about some form of peace in the near future.

    It is sad that many blacks have this semi inferiority complex about themselves, not all but many. I feel also that black American culture needs to have some new infusion of out side cultural influences from other cultures. This will help blacks open up more, and become the center of attention in America culturally. Black culture is already apart of general American culture. Sometimes people of different skin tones feel strongly attracted to each other. There is nothing wrong with that I say. Also sometimes in order to defeat someone — you have to join them. Therefore, by blacks intermarrying with whites and having kids with whites, whites will become a mulatto people. And, black culture will triumph over white culture, because the two culture are being mixed thus becoming a mixed race culture.

    The white race will someday cease to exist, they will die out, and their descendants will be mulattoes. They are gradually moving towards the way of the Native American, and that is deceasing in numbers. The black race will continue to exist and grow in numbers. Europe will become a mulatto continent too. There is nothing that whites can do to stop this, it is a part of their destiny.

    Whites are what I called a temporary race or transitory race, meaning they are only here a short while and then like what is happening to Native Americans they are disappearing. So whites and Native Americans will be the two racial groups that will disappear from out planet in the future. Legends will be told that these two racial groups existed.

  16. LaKair

    even if we do have a category of mixed race people, the skin tone would still vary . take samantha mumba for instance. she would be considered one of the mixed race because her mother is white and father black, but her skin is brown like most black people. then look at vanessa williams she is black but looks like a mulatto. i guess what i’m saying is what would adding an extra category of mixed race people change about society.

  17. LaKair

    Also i feel that people have the right to marry who they fall in love with. If Spike Lee loves a light skinned woman that’s his bizz. that doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t have married a brown or dark skinned woman. I personally want’ to marry a black man doesn’t matter what skin tone as long as the love is there. Now i’m not blind to the fact that some blacks are color struck and don’t want their children to be darker than them so they decide to marry a light skinned person. That is just sad to me because there obviously is some self hatered going on. But just because u have some black folk that are color struck it doesn’t mean all blacks are color struck. And as far as the jealousy of light skin vs. dark skin, like i said i believe some people are like that but, i don’t belive it is as far fetched as ur making it seem. Most of the folk i talk to about it feel it is not the skin color that make folk jelous. for example a dark skinned black girl could be jelous of a lite skinned black girl and it be because she want’s her long flowwing hair and could care less about her skin color. so i think its less skin color that sparks jelousy between blacks and more of other traits such as hair, eye color, and as u said european traits.

    My response: Just like we got all of these people with different skin color tones labeled black, we could also recreate the mixed race category, and those who wish to identify as mixed race are free to do so. It is an individual choice. Those who wish to identify as black can do so, and some people will switch back and forth between the two depending on the the situation. Skin tone is not the major factor, what really is the factor is the right to choose your self identity.

    My response: Lakair you said that dark sin black girl could be jealous of a light skin black girl not because of her light skin, but because the light skin gril has long flowing hair. You are saying Lakair it is more about potential jealousy of a light skin girl having European features like hair texture, eye color, nose, lips, etc than the light skin skin tone. What you insinuate is true in some cases Lakair. Sometimes it is a combination of both, and sometimes it is about skin tone only. I would like to say this too, that many of the light skin black women whether MGM, SGM, or FGM have hair texture that is the same as blacks and black Africans. Only a small percentage have hair that is non coarse. So the long flowing hair on many light skin women is the result of a good perm, and many dark skin black girls have this same long flowing hair which is the result of a good perm.

    MGM (multi generational mix or Multi generational mulatto) – FGM (first generational mix or bi racial) – SGM (second generational mix or second generational mulatto).

  19. Denise

    Yes their is some jealousy toward lighter skinned blacks, but only if the darker skinned black is colorstruck. Yes, often black men chose white women and lighter skinned black women as their trophy wives, especially down south. Cooley’s Looking Glass Self theory supports the fact that individuals view society as they view themselves. There are a lot of colorstruck mullatos as well,a lot of people are still bearing the scars of slavery and the brown paper bag test. The brown paper bag test still exists to this day, but just in a different form. The sociological icon Max Weber’s theory The Principle of Versthen(Understanding) is still of value today, we must understand something before we judge it.

  20. Chance

    You are so right Denise, you must walk in another person’s shoes (life situations) in order to understand why they act and do what they do.

  21. Lisa

    I have a biracial older sister. Yes I beleive the media, certain black people, and the world in general elevates this lightskin good hair is better crap. what is good hair any way?Fortunatley I grew up in a stable enviroment were people appreciated me and my sister and not for our looks.We are both considered atractive females in our community. Why do you assume that just because a black man or woman dates or marries a mixed race person or white person its because thay just love or envy their “light skin” or “good hair”. Maybe they just like or (dare i say )love each other.By the way who are you to tell people what they should identify with. Mixed race people should be able to identify with biracial, black or white. My sisrer identifies with black and no me and the black people in my family didnt put a gun to her head force her to do so. She grew up around black people and was raised by her black stepfather(my dad).She stills goes to vist her family her dad’s side. My mom make sure she kwows both sides of her heritage not just black or white.She also saw to it that my sister and i learned about other mixed race people too. Her white father died when she was 2 years old.If she chooses to identify with mixed, white or purple we will still love her. Not all black people are obsesed what mixed race people call themselves. When my sister identifies she makes that choice not us.

  22. David Flint

    I think that it might be of interest to point out that towns in Siberia are usually divided into two, one part of the town has good housing while the other half has inferior housing. The people who live in the better houses are descended from settlers, the people in the inferior houses are descended from slaves. In the Old World there was a saying that a male slave is not worth the bullet that it takes to kill him. White slaves in Africa were not given food, they had to eat whatever was given to the farm animals, and a white slave who became ill or had ‘flu was immediately shot. There was time in Africa when it was said that a batch of white men were sold cheaper than a bag of onions. If white people engaged in the African slave trade they were not set a good example by Africans. In addition where is the “black guilt” about all of the white slaves carried off in slave boats from Europe to Africa? Why is it always just one way?

  23. David Flint

    Concerning black women. You have to realise that in Europe it all depends upon which nation you are born into because some nations have a ban against white men marrying black women, while in other nations it is considered all right, and the children are regarded as belonging to that particular nation. In addition, concerning European features, the people of some European nations look like Chinese people, even though their ancestors have lived in Europe for thousands of years. By Europeans fetures do you mean yellow skin, high cheek bones, almond eyes, straight hair, etc? It is racist to claim that all native Europeans belong to the same race!

  24. David Flint

    One last post. I am not an Anglo-Saxon and I do not like Anglo-Saxons very much. I am a Celt by nation and descended from the Celtic Deceangli tribe (ten corners). If you are white and want to discoverer whether or not you are a member of the hated white anglo-saxon master race then a German called Linz publish in his magazine called Ostara the means to find out. If your willy or, in Americanese, if your pecker is too big, and if your fanny is too big, then because of your negroid pecker and fanny then you are some kind of Southern European ni**er or Eastern European mongol and not a real white man, so go on guys, check out your knobs and arses right now, I mean righ now.

    My response: Yes, the Europeans from the Netherlands, some people from Denmark, etc look Chinese. When black Americans speak of European features they are talking about the European features of the English (Anglo Saxons), Irish, and Scottish. When creoles in Louisiana speak of European features they are talking mainly about the French and Spanish (Spain) white who came to Louisiana and mixed with black and Native American people. When Latinos in Spanish speak countries of the Americas speak of white features they are talking about the European Latino countries like Spain, Portugal, and France.

    My response: This just proves that we are moving towards becoming mixed race, and this good for humanity. It proves that whites are mixed race too, seeing that many southern Europeans in Portugal, Spain, France, Italy, Sicily, and the Mediterranean islands and eastern Europe are mixed with some non white ancestry. This is very good.

    i am very intrigued by black America’s race obsession, every other website has some sort of racial undertone or debate. i am a lightskined black lady and to me black is black, whether your light or dark the bottom line is that you are black, within our race i must admit that lighter skinned individuals are out on a peddle stool but outside the race to the caucasian black is black no matter the tone, class or complexion.

    My response: We have heard this argument before; we have at this blog, why people who look very mixed race in phenotype are seen as black? It is because of the ODR (one drop rule). The ODR needs to go. If you are light skin and self identify as black you have that right.

This is ameikkka people. WAKE UP!

    My response: Realties change, and thus in us fighting against the ODR in this generation it will allow other future generations to be free of the ODR. On top of that there are people born to two self identified black parents, and they look totally white. They cross the color line into whiteness everyday and black Americans who don’t know there family history treat them respectfully like they treat white people. They also are protected from black pathologies because they look white, and blacks fear mistreating them because they look white. How come whites and blacks don’t bother them.

    You have to make efforts to change realities, and if W.E.B. Dubois, Booker T. Washington, Adam Clayton Powell jr, Martin Luther King jr, Sir Oliver Cromwell, Simon Bolivar, and countless others sat back and accepted the social realities that they lived in in their countries could not be changed then many people would not have freedoms they have today.

    Change takes efforts and grassroots movements.

    I’m a black woman and can’t wait for 2010 so biracials will have a separate category. The hatred these people have for blacks is sickening and I can’t wait to see the reaction when blacks finally realize the hand they played in creating this particular brand of racists. I think black men are going to take this news very hard, because too many of them do not want to believe how bigotted their golden people truly are. I’m glad I’m not in denial over this issue and can simply treat them as “human” deserving of respect but with no connection to me personally. Black folks…please notice how most articles and rhetoric from biracials is always slanted negatively towards our people and it’s mostly favorable towards whites since they are attempting to curry favor with them. Let these people go with the quickness so we can focus on our “own” for a change. Put biracials out of their misery so we can move on. There’s colorism even amongst biracials so don’t be surprised if some will want to dismantle their new category and return to blacks where there’s more ass kissing than they can shake a stick at.

    My response: Black people have more hatred for black people than any other group of people. Blacks have many members among their race who treat each other like animals, violent, negative towards, rude, disrespectful, murder, enjoy making unhappy, etc this is one of the reason blacks move away from blacks. Blacks prefer to live in white neighbors that are white if they can afford it.

    Some articles about blacks that some biracials, and mixed race people write are negative because blacks have being negative towards these people. It is hard for people to sympathize and feel sorrow for blacks because of the way blacks are in general (very negative, especially towards their own).
    Blacks create more of a problem for mixed race people than whites do these days. It blacks who keep trying to stop people from self identifying as they please.

    Yes, there is colorism among biracials and MGM mixed race people too. But there is colorism among all people.

    Melody, don’t kid yourself. I’d prefer to live in a community of Mulattoes but it is you who are the hater. Why? Because you refuse to let us indentify who we are. If anything, you needed Mulatto leaders to keep your people in check for years, if you want to go that way.

    Now I find this article very interesting because skintone is still very much a problem in the black community. I dont like how you say that a light skinned black person should be considered multi-racial instead of black simply because of how they look. If they look mixed then call them mixed, is what you say. That is not right and I had mentioned before, having a sibling with the same parents ( both black ) but he is born dark skinned with tight coarse hair but I was born with light skin and looser hair texture. Even though we have the same dna, am I more ‘mixed” than he is because my skin it light. That doesn’t make any sense. I have seen many cases were a person is born dark skinned with african feature who have more white in them than I do simple because they have a white parent Where as, I have no white parents. I have seen chocolate toned blacks with blue eyes ( naturally ). Genetics is a funny thing and a light skinned black person should not call themselves mixed if they ARE NOT MIXED. Black people come in many shades not just chocolate and caramel, as everyone likes to put it. So yes these black men that you mentioned before married light skinned BLACK women, not “mixed” women..lol…are they colorstruck?..quite possible. White women in historical times were placed on a pedistals(sp) as the prized possession, the women who was to be protected and kept pure… and black men always lusted after white women because they were always told, by ‘the white man’ ” NO you can’t have this prized possession “. So that is why so many black people hate being dark and lust after white or light skin so much. And dark skinned black women hate the light or white skinned woman because they were seen as the undesireable. It was all a mental conditioning. Black people are mentally conditioned to hate blackness. They have been brainwashed to believe black is ugly, low and dirty. And that tightly curled hair is a curse. And that is the reason why so many black men date outside or marry outside of their race….they want to obtain the prize, whiteness. The closer they can get to grabbing hold of it the better. The darker the man the ligther his woman is. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen the charcoal black brother with the lightest black woman he could beg to go out with him. He will be damned if his kids come out black and nappyheaded like himself. I m being sarcastic. My mother who is a dark skinned black woman confessed to me just recently that she worried about my younger brother because he wasn’t born lightskinned with good hair ( her words not mine ) like our father who was a very light skinned man who had more of a jew look to him than black african. She feared people would be indifferent towards him. She was right and how did she know this was going to happen? Are dark skinned black jealous of lighter skinned blacks?..YES they are and they act as thought light skinned blacks can help how they were born. Did you know I used to put sunless tanner on my skin just so darker skinned blacks who accept me more. no joke. I received a lot of hatred from blacks simply because of my tone. And sometimes I hate my race for it. Not to get all schizo but some ignorant ass blacks act like they hate my guts and don’t even know me. Blacks who are dark assume that lighter skinned blacks are stuck up … have some sort of privledges they dont have… Or that white people give light skinned blacks preferential treatment or some stupid shit. It is all part of the MIND CONTROL to keep blacks seperated. I wish black people would wack the fuck up and stop this shit. Mulatto is from the word MULE by the way jackasses.
