Hello, everybody! I haven't been posting here for 3 months because I've been going through a lot and I just want to take a break for a minute. I was watching one of the videos that a brother made about why black men preferred light skinned/mixed/non-black women, and he said that it's all because of biological reasons. He said that it's a biological preference for males to want white women because they are the fairest of all women and most men want fair-skinned women. They associate light skin with femininity and dark skin with masculinity. He said that light skin equates estrogen (a female hormone) and dark skin equates testosterone (a male hormone). So, in other words, the darker the woman, the more manly she looks SIMPLY because of her dark skin. This is one of the reasons why a lot of these black men abandon black women of a darker shade. A lot of black men want to justify their craving for light/white flesh by using bullshit studies that has a racist/sexist agenda. This gentleman said that using the media, and the cultural conditioning to worship European standards of beauty is a "copout", and that it's evolution that men preferred lighter women. He said that male babies like to look at lighter female faces than darker female faces. WTF?????? He said that black women have more testosterone than non-black women and that testosterone has given black women dark skin, Afro hair and African features. In other words BLACK WOMEN LOOK LIKE MEN SIMPLY BECAUSE OF THEIR DARK SKIN, KINKY HAIR, WIDE NOSE, AND FULL LIPS! This is the most ridiculous bullshit that I have ever heard! Since when did being black for a woman is ugly but being black for a man is good-looking? This is BULLSHIT! We all know that men's craving for lighter women with long straight hair, blond hair, blue eyes, pointy nose, thin lips has a WHOOOOLE lot to do with adapting to the European standards of beauty. Biology has NOTHING to do with this. This is a LEARNED behavior! If you constantly see the same image over and over and over again, of course you will be programmed to believe that it's beautiful because that's all you see. A lot of people who come with these bullshit theories about female beauty is doing it to defeminize and dehumanize and diss black women's looks.
Most black men have been brainwashed to like light-skinned women with long straight hair, pointy nose, and thin lips. They want to use so-called BIOLOGY and EVOLUTION to justify hating darker skinned black women. It's funny how the same darker skinned women that black men diss are embraced by light-skinned black men and non-black men most of the time. Most of the black men that hate darker skinned black women are dark-skinned themselves. He also said that black men married black women by default, and that they only married black women because they have no other choice and that they have no access to non-black women, but when a black man lives in a neighborhood that's predominately non-black, nine times out of ten, he will preferred a non-black women. He failed to realize that when you live in a neighborhood where it's mostly non-black, of course he's going to date them. DUH! So what he is saying is that black men don't want black women, and if they do, a black woman can't be too dark, her hair can't be too short and nappy, she can't look too Afrocentric, her nose can't be too wide etc. They rather for black women to look more European to get with them. They want a black Barbie doll. To a black man, the more Afrocentric the black woman looks, the more black men will reject her. The more European the black woman looks, the more black men will flock to her. They don't want black women who look Afrocentric. Some of these theories say that beauty is objective when it's not. BEAUTY IS SUBJECTIVE, NOT OBJECTIVE!!!!
