My mother thinks I'm light, I think I'm brown...

My color perception:
Light: Tisha Campbell
Brown: ranging from...Nia Long/Phylicia Rashad/Michelle Williams/Gabby Union/Kimberly Elise
Dark: Viola Davis/Tika Sumpter/Keshia-Knight Pulliam

I do wonder if all Black people know that we're all "dark-skinned" to Whites LOL
They don't give a sht about tones.  We're "dark"er than them.  That's all they know/care about/process.

And neither does all this light-skin, dark-skin bullsht.
 
 
ETA:  why would a race care so much about lighter and darker skin if they weren't comparing themselves to Whites?  As "light" as whom?  "Dark"er than whom?  White people.  Think you need to recheck your cheek.

healthy minded ppl can use descriptive terms for people's complexions without it having any negative connotation...it's just a way to describe someone and i don't really like the idea of shying away from such terms because all of our shades are beautiful and should be acknowledged.  ppl with color issues make it extra complicated and a negative thing.

Whites got their own thing going on, such as "pale" vs "tan"
