you guys with your race issues. Get over it and move forward. Onl,y black people worry about how light or how dark their skin is. Time to integrate and live with the rest of us.

The men obviously think lightskin women are more sexier and attractive.

NO. As a black woman myself, I'm aware that light skinned women are often favored, but I don't think skin bleaching is a good idea. I know you've made several posts about feeling rejected by men, but nothing you do to alter your appearance will change the fact that you're black, so you need to just focus on men who will appreciate you for who you are. I have dark skin and while more men might find me attractive if I had lighter skin, I don't see my complexion as a dating hindrance and would never consider skin bleaching.

And they are the last ones imo, who should be. But then, social conditioning through the media accounts for so much of that kind of insecurity. America itself finds lighter skinned people more attractive. So while not impossible, it's not so simple to order someone to just forget it. Some black people, afraid to cross interracial lines, gravitate towards 'high yellow' mates in order to experience a percieved elevated social status, while not 'betraying' their bretheren. To me, its all soo very silly. But then, who thinks like me? Lol

Anna. Please! Do you want to become an ugly white woman like Michael Jackson? Seriously. As we told you in that wacko "my man better not be looking at porn thread," it is your self esteem that you need to adress. And since you already have a boyfriend, whats the problem????

OP, what is with your OBSESSION about light and dark skinned women? Has it ever occurred to you that your skin tone has NOTHING to do with all your guy problems or should I say, lack of men? Every thread you post has to do with you harping on how men prefer lightskin women, blonde women, bisexual women...jeeze...
