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.

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.
>>
>>53310375
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.
>>
>>53309376
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.

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)
>better attitudes
>smarter
>more feminine
It's amazing what a little bit of nonblack DNA can do to a woman.

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.

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.

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

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.
