PLEASE REPOST.
Please just skim over this article…I’m not sure what was more shocking, the research or the things that were being said about Black Women

(from the article)
“For example, one respondent in his 20s stated the following about black women and the standard of beauty:
There are some black women who are attractive. And they aren’t full black. The only black women I find attractive are a mix of black and [E]uropean, black and [L]atino, or black and [A]sian. They end up with the tan complexion, and hair that doesn’t look frizzled or like a brillo pad.
Similarly, another respondent in his 50s stated the following about black women and attractiveness:
I think black women’s features are too extreme; they are too dark, and they usually are much too large for my tastes. The black women I have know[n] are very aggressive and have terrible attitudes…The only black women I have found even marginally attractive are smaller, lighter-skinned black women with nice rear ends. ala Beyonce.
Another respondent, an older working-class male, articulated one of the most racialized and gendered social constructions of black women, when he stated:
“I tend to read African features as somewhat masculine. The ‘blacker’ the person, the less femininity I tend to see.”

*this is the reason why colorism still exist !!!!!!

*sighs*

Watching CNN’s “Who’s Black in America” and a 7 yr old said she’s ugly because she has dark skin and wants to be light. Ughh. That broke my heart.

Colorism is the devil!

I CAN’T BELIEVE THIS FOOL SAID “If you are black don’t tell me you are all proud to be black, but not know what part of Africa you family comes from.”

I’m sorry my ancestor’s master didn’t care to keep records of what countries my people were from. 

THIS!

The whole African American vs African riff annoys me so much.

chocolatehighhh:

disgusting

Are fucking kidding me?!
*blood boiling*

I will never understand this African vs African American thing going on.

We all need to respect each other and listen to one another.
