Why would your initial thought be that he thinks her daughter is cuter than yours because she is light skinned? 
If you hooked them up, then he could be just doing it for extra brownie points. You know you gotta accept the child in order to date the mother. 
The whole skin color thing wouldn't have even crossed my mind unless it was something I was insecure about. So as someone else said..please don't project your insecurities on your child.

Let me look at a few of your pics.

I honestly can't relate. My daughter is dark and I swear I cannot go anywhere without people men women gushing over her. When someone is really beautiful all that color stuff goes out the window. I get lots of compliments from light skin women who have light skin babies. My daughter makes people do double takes and shes only five. I'm not bragging but if people see something they like they will gush or someone is uniquely beautiful. Now the light dark stuff does exists but in the case of my daughter I have not seen it once since she has been born. Only lots of praises from everyone. It gets only my nerves at times but I have not seen dark skin hate.

^^Girl it will come in time. I used to be one of those babies people would stop in the grocery stores as well. 

But children are cut throat and will try their best to tear her down because of her color. I made sure any comment that was made about my color was met with a backhand. Mind you I was an ignant ass 10 year old and I have changed lol, but you get the point.

This is ridiculous, could it simply be he just doesn't find your child cute/beautiful??

Not saying she isn't, but beauty is different for different people. J/S

I noticed my family has been doing this for at least 3 generations now. It's like every time that slave masters genes pop back up they are intentionally trying to breed it back out.

In my family, there are primarily light women/dark spouse, but I know first hand that the dark men are aggressively going after, giving their A-Game and committing to the light woman.

I know what the OP is talking about. I have seen people rave over a light baby and seconds later all they have to say about the dark baby is 'oh wow, he is getting big'.

my parents shielded us from colorism, but I learned the heft of if from being a BHM member and that helped me to be more aware of it day to day. Thank you BHM.
