Why the hate on light skinned black people?

I have heard this come up before and Cabeza posted a link where a fight happened and this was one reason for it.

Why is there such hate on light skinned black people amongst the certain parts of the black community? It's like it is a weird form of racism amongst a race.

I have been told by some black friends that there is a certain perception among some blacks that to secure a mate lighter than themselves is preferable, but I have no idea how prevalent that is. Until I heard that, I had no idea such a thing existed. I just assumed they all viewed themselves equally.

I'm sure the social engineers will say it's because white privilege has conditioned blacks into denigrating their own skin color and causing them to prefer "whiter" skin instead.

I've known a few black women in my day - my opinion as a red-blooded all-American male is that I've seen some really dark-skinned women who took my breath away, and I've seen some I didn't find attractive at all. Same with light-skinned women, and every shade in between. It just depends, and that's not even including other factors of attractiveness, such as personality.

Ironically, just before logging in here I was reading this article by an "angry black woman", in which she is angry every day because she is a) black; b) light-skinned; and c) very attractive ..... of course the every existence of us darn caucasoids is the reason for her non-stop anger. She must be a fun person to hang out with.

True dat.

Even back in the 20's, "Colored" with a capital "C" meant lighter than a paper shopping bag. Big time racists.

I prefer my women "Mickey Rivers-black".

Black people's issues with lighter skinned blacks is about as serious as white people's issues with gingers.

And there's something sinister about people who are left-handed.

There's a theory among some that the politics of the NBA are impacted by skin tone, some believing Steph Curry is unpopular based upon that and being considered a "suburban" guy.

Below is an article from Undefeated outlining some of the issues-

Michael Eric Dyson can toss the BS with the best of 'em. I've read some of his books. If you were to believe what he writes, Tupac Shakur is on par with Jesus ( and probably superior) in his ability to forgive your sins and make you worthy for Heaven.

The only thing I got out of the article was that "hood" is "code" for "real".
