I don't think we define ourselves by white standards at all. It's not our money that made Bey or Rhi worldwide phenomena as opposed to a less racially ambiguous black person. Even if we as blacks didn't considethemblack that doesn't open up a spot for a darker woman.
In fact we as blacks, looking at our magazines, TV shows, and movies do a far better job (gabby union, nia long, etc.. . The blacks who reach megastardom would be the European ideal in any country, not just this one.

then they are black. 

its more about being the community college of races. theres no argument that light skin people aren't black. but if someone is mixed, it doesn't make them automatically black or anything. nor should people try so hard to claim them. LOL

the purpose of the one drop rule is, if you aren't white, then you are black.
that is defining yourself by white standards. 

if you can't fit in as white, then the black community welcomes you as one of their own.

Would you guys be mad if these girls denied the "Black" category and referred to themselves as "mixed" and "biracial"?
