I'm like the same color as Kelly Rowland and I consider myself dark skinned but not black (doesn't anyone else use that word do describe human color?) I would consider Tika Sumpter black but know a lot of people would just say dark skinned. I would call Wesley Snipes black, not dark skinned. Either that or I would describe him "real dark skinned" if I was talking to someone I didn't know or I was trying not to sound ignorant.

I also consider myself brown skinned but I know when most people say it they a referring to a color lighter than me. But I feel like I am the typical color of a brown, dark skinned person. But I consider myself darker than average because I consider the average to be a peanut butter or toffee color like Usher.

Where is goodgirl? Can you use coffee pics too? A skin color thread is not complete without references to coffee.



We, the jury have deliberated...

Coffee cannot be used to describe the shade of one's skin color. We have limited it to only cookies and candy...

Why do we need a "nice way" to say dark?
Im sorry I guess cus in my head im thinking of its my my step mothers nice way, cus ik how she is...
 
I think your step mother is messed up  in the head - stay away from her and keep your kids away from her or she will mess them up too.
 
I think brown skinned is the same as dark skinned but if she wants to use someone she dislikes skin tone to hurt them by calling them Black as an insult .. she's nuts.
 
To me there are 3 general skin tones.
 
Anyone in the range of  Beyonce, Halle, Alicia Keys  etc is Light Skinned'
Anyone in the range of Oprah, Kelly Rowland, Janet Jackson etc is Dark Skinned (most AAs fall into this range and I consider myself dark skinned)
Anyone in the range of Wesley Snipes, Alex Wek and Seal are Very Dark Skinned
 
Again, I am saying range so this is not a precise accounting ... I just don't see that it matters EXACTLY what your skin tone is .. unless you are just trying NOT be be dark skinned as if that is a bad thing. Confused
 
But we are all .. Black.

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.
 
Darker/lighter than eachother...  I dnt see anything wrong with noting the differences in our shades, but I get what you are ultimately saying, why does it matter.

I would consider Meghan Goode brown skinned.
I consider brandy and Naomi Campbell dark skinned.

I consider myself dark skinned

Alex Wec (sp?) Is really dark skinned. I wouldnt consider her "black"....like literally the color black.

Or is Alex's skin actually black. I need to Google her.
