Yall leave Tyra alone Cry. I don't think Tyra meant anything malicious with her statement. She's just in the hollyweird sphere where there is a high number of interracial dating amongst blacks making her have an exaggerated view especially when black male celebs rather cut their right arm off than date anyone darker than kim k. I always appreciated that she shined light about the ds/ls issue in the black communities to the public. #nonewblack.

But I don't think she was talking about interracial dating.  She said people would choose beyonce or rihanna colored skin for themselves or kids.  So she's basically saying the majority of black people would voluntarily shed their dark skin with this new technology.  But maybe she's right.  Claiming the darker skin would be heralded as unique is not true though...it would just be seen as something bad.

Is she only talking about choosing hair w technology or skin too?

If I have a baby with someone darker than me then the baby should be a shade between the two...it would be weird to just pick a color.

I don't disagree with her about what people will choose.

But I remember back in the Golden Days of BHM there was a poll that asked if there was a pill that could make your curl pattern significantly looser would BHM members take it.

The vast majority said yes. When people protested about how anti-black it was we were met with excuses.

This is no different from what Tyra is saying. It's the damn truth. Many black people if given the option would be less black and one day the "Black" race will look completely different. The only dark skinned people you'll find will be immigrants from The West Indies/Africa who'll probably end up marrying whiter as well.
