I'm dark. I don't have a problem saying it. Other people call me brown, but I self identify as dark.

Yes and blond/blue means a lot to them also.

As long as the white beauty myth is alive it will never end.There are those individuals who are truly dark skin who consider themselves brown because they don't want to be labeled as dark."Dark," has a negative connotation to many people within the black community,so they don't want to be associated with it.


That's true and sad really, and it seems like its negative when it comes to black females. And what I hate is when darkskin black males say negative things about darkskin black females. I'm like have they never looked in the mirror. It the pot calling the kettle black effect!

but dark skinned women should stop getting offended. if someone doesn't think any female with dark skin can be beautiful then s/he is clearly dumb & ignorant so why you care what they think?

I've seen so many gorgeous dark skinned women. And if you go on youtube you can see some of them clearly KNOW it. They're not stupid enough to buy into the 'dark is ugly' notion because the evidence that it's false is right there in the mirror.

Too many people place too much importance on sheer stupidity.

Why is this logic not applied when white people make it a point to exclude black people period (magazines, runways, TV shows, etc) because they don't find us attractive..why are dark skinned women supposed to just get over it...

It's not just individual people either. The majority of the world has fallen into this line of thinking. I think we have reason to be offended.

if the majority of the world has this mindset then the majority of the world is ignorant then.
don't forget the power of media brainwashing.
you can't change it you need to accept it and deal with it.
i used to spend time on predominantly white forums and the guys would always say horrible things about bw and that no pure black girl is beautiful and other b.s
it did hurt me at the time
now i know they're just dumb
a lot of people are ignorant and narrow minded
let them continue to have that mindset
don't be a sheep like the rest and have the power to actually think intelligently

i could go into the historical context - white colonialism, the lighter the better blah blah but man i'm tired. been a tough day had really bad period pains.
