Dark is beautiful
a dark skinned girl once argued in my class that boys prefer light skinned girls and chase her light skinned friend more. my friend replied if you were pretty, dark skinned or not , boys will chase you more.
its quite unfortunate that black people do not like their heritage as for me i hope i have a super pretty dark skinned baby. honestly i dont care the color as long as she's pretty.
Neither shade is more beautiful than the other. A woman's beauty, even the superficial factors, go beyond the shade of her skin.
I've always found it amusing that the same rappers that dominate the music scene, or everyday arrogant men, and make such big proclamations that they are 'truly black' are the sames ones that will always feature light skinned women in their videos or chase after light skinned women and white women, respectively.
I am light skinned and have never felt anymore special or beautiful because of it. In fact as a teen I had acne and the number of people that used to say to me 'at least you have light skin' is unbelievable!
There is nothing wrong with having a preference for light or dark skin but thinking that one is completely better than the other is pure and utter nonsense.
Generally, most people are of the opinion that ligt skinned people (not just women) are more attractive. This is because you see them first. their complexion makes them stand out, but on closer scrutiny you might find the dark skinned person more attractive. when i see a light skinned girl, i like to imagine what she'd look like if she was dark skinned.
