I honestly think we should idolize...iono if idolize is the right word since I don't want to offend and/or have this go the way of a lecture on idolatry.

antyways...I know that they're light skint but they were essentially all we had back then when I think of glamourous black Hollywood. You got folks that keep Marilyn's memory alive to this day. All kinds of pop art built around her etc. Almost every POC knows who Marilyn is (even if you have seen not nan a movie) but not Nina Mae.


That said...I've no issue with Biracial women on screen but tbh...I do have an issue with them playing a character that is billed as fully black. But at the same time we like to say black women come in everyshade, every colour, everybody type so can we really get mad?

Aaliyah was a light skinned woman. You dont have to be ivory pale to be light skinned. Some of these folks that yall consider "light skinned" arent even black so they wouldnt count anyway. I wish I would call some quadroon lookin ass girl light skinned but a real light skinned sista isnt even light skinned? wtf lol

To me she is the definition of a light skinned person. Well maybe not definition, but the avg everyday light skin person is the same complexion

its all relative- I think she is about the same color as halley berry- lite brown not on the fairest but butter brown, If know one would have told me Halley Berry was mixed I am not sure I would have known like back in the day in movies like Jungle fever and Boomerang she was darker than "Gena" from Martin.
