But after doing some research on the connection between a black woman’s marriageability and her skin color, I realized that this woman was giving voice to a dating problem many melanin-rich women have encountered: colorism Colorism is defined as discrimination against darker-skinned people, especially among members of the same ethnic or racial group.
In other words, the lighter you are, the more privileges you can receive.
Both men and women have their own standards and ideals when it comes to superficiality and there’s NOTHING wrong with skin color being a part of that for them.
Personally, I think using someone’s skin tone as a metric to evaluate a level of attractiveness is STUPID, but it’s NOT necessarily a sign of PREJUDICE.
Well, the flip side is, light skinned men have been stereotyped among the types of men you should not date.
Here are some of the perceptions associated with them: They are players Their complexion makes them attractive.
As excellently written as on what type of women they would rather date — light skin or dark skin — and their answers, in conjunction with the women’s tales.
Some dudes said they thought light skin women were “better,” dark girls didn’t look clean, and other infuriating bullshit.
Once there was a guy I liked who took me to eat at Burger King and we ate the food inside his car and talked. I bet if I were lightskin they would probably take me out to a movie and dinner That is so silly of you. why dont you count the numbers of white and asian men you see in thr mall with black women...i feel like they get away scot free for not wanting black women I dont believe you! However whenever I see a Black guy with his girlfriend, whether its on a date or at the mall she is ALWAYS lightskin.
What I notice is most black men prefer dark skin-to-light skin black women. Black women has different shades of color for many years. I feel like you are yet ANOTHER pathetic BW with no identity, who can only live in association with some sort of attachment to black men. I have never had the opportunity of having a black guy take me out on a date.
