This doesn't exist, since non of us (well African-Americans anyway) are really fully anything. Maybe some of those Nigerians or Ghanaians are.

I have 2 "black parents" but my grandmother was "black" with a white grand parent. She had light skin, light eyes and wavy hair. But hey, she was "black."

Why don't you post a link to a picture of a woman who is "really" black, because clearly some of us are ignorant of what that means.

I don't have any lightskin or mixed grandmothers. They were all darkskin Black people. I guess I am in the minority cause every AA says they have a biracial grandparent

I would post my picture as an example of a fully black woman but I wont. I am fully black and don't have any mixed features like narrow nose, lightskin, or wavy/straight hair. Not very many women in the mainstream media look like me. Most of the AAs I see on television look mixed to me. I look at Kerry Washington and she is lightskin to me because I am significantly darker than her and have less (none) mixed features. but I am made to feel very invisible because everybody wants to act like the entire African American race is lightskin or mixed with something

To the OP: why are you letting one comment define how you think about yourself?

This is just silly.

Here you go: I happen to think women with dark, rich complexions look beautiful. I particularly think they look wonderful when they have their hair natural. I think it looks gorgeous. I know many people who are envious of women with those features.

Why not just substitute what that other person wrote for what I wrote?

Okay, well post a picture of someone who you think doesn't look mixed, even if they are. They don't have to be an A-list celebrity, just someone who you think represents what it means to be black and beautiful but who doesn't have "keen" features, "good" hair, or too light skin. This shouldn't be hard with a little bit of googling. I'd do it myself but I'm afraid anyone I'd find you would think wasn't black enough.

Because that would make too much sense.
