Guys aren't always flocking to only light-skinned women in the room. Of course, racial makeups can provide a bevy of looks. Colorism and racism has taught us all that dark skin is inferior and that African-Americans specifically are at the bottom of the totem pole. Well, I'm both, but more than that, African-American stereotypes are often that we are loud, ghetto, lazy, thuggish, senseless baby makers, and any other unattractive thoughts ascribed to the black people whose ancestors lived, were enslaved, and died on U. We are just black and for many people -- even other black ones -- that's not enough.Instead, they vet you to see what of dark-skinned girl you are. They usually respond with, "I mean, you're so pretty. One black family can be full of everything from kinky to bone straight hair to deep, chocolate skin to melanin so scarce that the black person could pass for white. These guys can deal with black and dark, but they need a few more qualifications before you make the cut, though.

That's a long ways away from, "I'm a business major and I make beats in my dorm room on the side."This new crop is even offering to buy my friends and I of these swanky, high-ass New York City drinks.Once they make their way through the crushing bar crowd and back to bring something fruity and usually pink, I check the bottom to make sure they didn't spike my drink or anything. My hair is the kinkiest texture on the kink chart, and often pulled into a puff at the top of my head.There to be something else in your cultural background to help them rationalize the attraction they feel toward you, despite those stereotypes about African-American people. It's evidenced by his refusal to accept that I am "just black" and wanting to pry some faux-information about me being from elsewhere.It all tumbles out on the dance floor."I'm black" is usually my first answer when I'm asked, despite looking it, obviously."But you're so pretty though. " is usually what they counter with."North Carolina.""No, but what country are you from originally? This racial background interview conducted to the tunes of French Montana or some '90s throwback is annoying.I simply understood colorism to be a social disease that affects of black people and can skew how dark-skinned women are selected in the dating pool.
