I hate that I did this thread. It's not a random thoughts. I was asked to do it after mentioning it tongue and cheek in that other thread.again, it is not a random thoughts and melikey just did an excellent job of sumerizing (on my phone so not gonna quote).

We can kill it with fire now...

Did you honestly think this type of thread would end well??? 

People don't like to deal with their own insecurities, shortcomings, or feelings of inferiority even if they never admit it. There have been enough threads on the first page of TTT to prove that, if you missed any of them just browse the Lupita, random hair thoughts ,hell someone was up in arms about someone not telling her , her baby was cute and she went with the theory that it was because she was dark complexion....

If you said anything that even implied that you didnt think Lupita was pretty, they came for you and swore you hated dark skin. If you then posted in the Kim K. thread then that confirmed your evil skin hating ways. Someone went as far to say that Kim's thread was longer, even though it was started a year pre Lupita. Confused

If you say you not natural, then you a coon loving weave wearing baldhead ho. You cant possibly wanna embrace your inner black girl. Phuck the possibility that you don't have 4b hair, and just dont like the look of a damn twistout. 

Most times its the person that wont let themselves be GREAT....

I feel ya. 

But no topic should be off limits when this board is barely clinging on its last breath. Sad.  could have been an interesting discussing. Not a comparison to any other "struggle". Just a different perspective. I hate giving in to discomfort uuugghh.

Anyway, shout out to LB for her honesty. I'm sure it isn't easy to open up about this.

I've seen my sister has gone through some things because of her complexion. People would automatically judge her even before getting to know her.... she ended up being really defensive about who she lets in her circle of friends.

 
Light skin women get judged unfairly by other blacks, I've seen it.....

Maybe I just don't get it, and probably never will. If people spent as much time worrying about improving their own life, how would you have the time, energy or effort to really ponder what someone else thinks.

Sometimes people just don't like you, it aint about your light/dark skin, you wear weave or kinky twists, you fat/skinny, or any other factor that YOU don't like about YOURSELF.
