its an erroneous assumption to think that people who have issues with the ls/ds thing are darkies who wish they were light

how ignorant

it is sad that there is a struggle. but its not imagined. some people don't like to be introspective about these things and live life on the shallow end, scared to face their demons, but again. it is very real. 

the complex is everywhere. when people say "i don't like light skinned women/men because [insert bullsh*t reason]", or "i prefer light skinned men/women because [insert bullsh*t reason]", their complex is showing. 

not sure what afro meant with the lack of empathy comment, but that resonates with me. struggle is struggle. there is no competition. but i chose my words carefully because, whether we want to admit it or not, this topic has folk in defense mode. 

whatever though...

I don't always know if men truly like me and people really consider me good looking, or if they only think/say that because I'm light skinned and have curly hair.

the only advantages i can think of are being the object of desire for coon ass color struck kneegrows, being half naked shaking your ass in a lil' wayne video, or being on the cover of pharrell's latest album. all misogynistic bullsh*t. nothing worth being proud over.
