I can sort of relate. I never had a color problem. I was just acutely aware of other black people's inferiority complexes and them categorizing me as less than because of my color.

It's the same as black people being acutely aware of white people stigmatizing them.

Lol my friend literally just described some guy who was interested in her as "black as hell." Like, just right now.

Numero uno why I will stan for Lupita alwaaays. She could release a dud and I wouldn't care. She's "black as hell" and doing her thing and taking a dump on everyone in her path.

However, I can't relate to the 'self hate because I am dark' thing that infects soooo many Black women and I am dark.

I think it's family .. if your family does their job ... no matter what the 'media' says ... you are not gonna have a 'color' problem.
I don't know why I am so shocked that she had a skin color issue... I am dark and I never felt like this!-

It's everywhere now. I was chatting with this dude from Cameroon and I told him of my intention to visit Senegal eventually. He screwed up his face and replied that the people in Senegal are just soooo dark. I looked at him like he was crazy.

I think the most beautiful African people I've ever seen are the Senegalese and the Fulani of West Africa
