You also have to take into consideration of the different histories of each country in dealing with white supremacy. What is not mention is that darker people are usually poor and uneducated and thus many groups (Asians and Indians from India) do everything that they can to distance themselves from them, thus lean towards the european standards of beauty

First of all it does not cover your whole skin, only in spots and blotches. Secondly he could have easily had those areas darken with make up like many others who also suffer from it. Finally, he removed all facial aspects of his "blackness. Nose and lip thinning, changed his hair and even had a cleft put in his chin. I listen to some of his speeches and he does realized that he was black, but he acted like he was shamed of his appearance. Come to think of it I think that all of them except for Tito had some sort of facial alteration done to their faces.

I'd break it down by sex and age here. More and more Millineal Black ladies are talking proper, straightening their hair and so on to "fit in" and, it seems, to catch a white dude as a husband since way too many Black dudes DON'T take care of business.

To them it looks more exotic than a regular light skinned woman. This is the same principle as to why many white men like biracial women and certain Asian looking women

Even that's shaky since word is not all "full blood" Black African people look "Black" with the wide nose, no bridge and big lips. That seems to be more a Ghana and Nigeria thing. Zulus and Somalis, not so much.

Agreed. That's a part of "Hispanic" culture right there; the "whiter" the better. Sad because some of those darker skin people are def nice looking.

Look at us now: The black and white twins as they turn seven | Mail Online

Both parents would be "Black" in the US: 1 of of their kids ain't, going by looks.

It's the way they roll here in Bullhead City: most Black ladies under about 30 years old have anglo, NOT "Hispanic" white partners and light Mulatto or even anglo looking kids.
