Ive noticed light skin and mongrel black women are everywhere in hip hop video clips and the mainstream US media yet when I went to the US for a holiday, the average African american looks African. I thought I would have been greeted with exotic brazilian looking black women s on the street by the way the black community represents itself in the media.
Is there light-skinned preferences in women in low income black communities? Yes
Does that mean it's a caste? No, mostly because legally we are all black and secondly Indian castes aren't based on color and never has been.
>African Americans look African
Well Africans very dramatically, so sure maybe. I know many black Americans who look like this Wolof woman, myself included
No, all the 1/4 Puerto Ricans/Dominicans , half Jamaicans/Antiguans/Barbadians/Nigerians, etc....
The number of black Americans with a Jewish, Irish or Italian grandparent there.
10% seems about right.
>the greatest black empowerment movement since the 60's
All except for Raven idemtify as black as a result of the one drop rule which blacks support. They all benefited from affirmative action which gave blacks certain previleges. They are black according to many African Americans I know
Raven identifies as "American" that doesn't make her not black. The two do not cancel out each other, she doesn't see herself as an Africa and if you actually listened to her you'd know that.
We are black not because of Affirmative Action dumbass, we are black because of our history and our own evolving ethnogenesis.
I was talking about how light skin blacks are overrepresented in positions of power or in hollywood you fuktard. How they are seen as better when it comes to the dating heirachy in black communities.
Well it's mostly a white and Jewish industry and we have a lot of evidence of light skin bias by White people. Sure some black people have biases but that bias comes from white preference.
Colorism/racism is a HUGE issue within the black community.
Invariably, light-skinned black people with whiter features are seen as the most attractive. Because Euro admixture is so high over here, there are a ton of those people.
This especially hurts black women, because they're seen as undesirable for being dark skinned even though black men are often praised by black women for having dark skin. Dark skinned men are also more accepted by white society than dark skinned women.
It's not just Ashi, Mizrahim Jews as well.
I'm an Ethiopian Jew, I tend to pool Jews together across racial lines because of the social ties we have push each other up down there.
She faces the same hurdles as black women, she just also is perceived as slightly more acceptable.
Lol Raven talsk hit about Blacks all the itme.
Espeically the ones that fostered and nutured her when she was young.
Bitch goes out an insults black names when her name is a black name in of itself (Symoné is not how you spell that)
But shes also continueing to perpetuate a system that puts those with white features on top. Mongrel women are just contributing the problem of black representation in the media and the beauty standards in black communities.
No there's not a "racial hierarchy" because African Americans for the most part have the same racial admixture. There's a color divide though.
Lightskins vs. Darkskins
Lightskins may be seen as slightly more desirable due to Eurocentric beauty standards but darkskins are not left out.
Black American here
Lightskin women (or mixed black women in general) are undoubtedly better and more desirable than darkskin or fully black women for a few reasons:
>better looking (yeah yeah muh beauty standards deal with it)
It's amazing what a little bit of nonblack DNA can do to a woman.
pic related is your typical "black" girl on American TV
In the USA the girl on the right would be much more desirable than the girl on the left, even though they're both pretty.
It's kinda sad but it's the truth
Fuck off senpai
Lightskins have never been that great. The only reason lightskins may be slightly preferred is because of white devil American propaganda.
In America yes but in the grand scheme of things fuck no.
Most outside Amerikkka would prefer the left for being more exotic.
Did I trigger you Sven? What I said was true. People here have a hard-on for anything lightskinned.
Beautiful dark skinned black women who would be fawned over in places like Europe or Africa are always dumped in the trash here.
Most famous black woman in the USA (and the world)- lightskin who sometimes dyes her hair blonde. Again, sad but true.
You can get mad but you know it's true.
lol, dat denial/10. Make a twitter account and go see how your fellow black men treat lightskin women vs. darkskin women
>Most outside Amerikkka would prefer the left for being more exotic.
I have a hard time believing this, especially considering the fact that both of those girls are from the same African country.
Topkek..When it coes to Africa, most people want East African women for obvious reasons
Not Ethiopian Jews adopted by liberal Ashkenazim from the US.
Obviously I know Selam, it's the same in Arabic. You just wrote something fedora tippish.
She has Ethiosomali-like features which are African.
Selam is hello, most habesha langauges are semitic which is why we share some word with arabic. Im half ethiopian by the way
And no, Ethiopians are mixed race because od the distance between in the Arab peninsula and HOA is only a few kilometres and there was always trade and cu,tural exchange between the two regions. Thats why Ethiopia has one of the first Jewish, Christian and Islamic communities.
100% accurate post that shouldn't hurt any feelings.
Also 100% accurate but will trigger some darkskin women.
Whatever, the truth is the truth.
>I have a hard time believing this, especially considering the fact that both of those girls are from the same African country.
In that pick with the two women fuck no. >>53310927
We are predominately Ethio-Somali and our ancestors made up such a significant effect in the Arabian peninsula we created the Modern South Arabian languages.
No. But the skin color isnt whats important as long as she isnt pitch black, what makes dark skins unattractive is the bantu facial features - wide noses and huge lips. Even light skinned african americans can have those facial features...
People dont like the looks of bantu blacks in general. Well horn african blacks arent really popular either but at least more so than bantu blacks.
Remember Europe is still 90-95 % white or something despite memes, the norm is white sun tanned skin + blue eyes.
That's our finest you see anon.
Thing is relatively in the media we are invisible barring the occasional model minority paraded around or the hottest fashion model that is paraded around for being a beautiful fashion model before she is thrown in the bin with every other non-white model because fashion is /pol/ the industry.
and technically youre a hybrid race, not black or white sonce the mixing hstarted 10s of thousands of years ago which is why Ethiopians look wierd for mutts
We vary dramatically family to family >>53311377
You didn't read the study, simplistic admixture models and recent admixture models are not accurate given the genetic information.
Thank you, been awhile :3
We aren't merely hybrids, we're very ancient Afrasians.
It's very safe to assume that most women of any African country are quite ugly
>fashion is /pol/ the industry.
Go make an African fashion show then and stop complaining about the traditionally European/white American fashion shows if you don't fit the part (i.e. if you don't look European). All of the non-white girls in these shows still look European and there's nothing wrong with that
pic to illustrate point
wateva man. I dojntcare anymore. How did you did you end up with Ashkenazi parents
Oluchi, Alek, Atuai, Grace, Amilna, Maria, Betty etc... African models are quite statements. It's a racist industry for sure but that doesn't mean we aren't also creating change ourselves, it's tokenism that's the biggest issue not recognition of African beauty
There were many orphans after the escape to Sudan were the artists were at, I got picked up a few months after the airlifts.
>it's tokenism that's the biggest issue not recognition of African beauty
It is my understanding that without this modern acquiescence to "diversity" there would be no women of African descent in fashion shows and very few African models in the USA since we're still a majority white country with European beauty standards.
Yves was pushing literal African royalty and upper class girls to be his models since the 70s.
Princess Margeret of England brought out Princess Elizabeth of Toro to NYC to begin her career; Katoucha began with Mugler before becoming Yves muse; Rebecca Ayoko was smash hit and discovered in Paris.
The early 90's to early 00's was very varied, it was an amazing era that showcased the world's beauty but then things just changed in the post 9/11 World somehow.
This isn't a fight for something that never happened before, though to be fair by the mid-90's the notion of more than 1 black top model was kind of seen as crazy. Many super models though.
