Dark Skin & Ugly

I was reading some posts on a different site and it was saying that black men look for lighter skinned black women these days - personally I love my dark skinned brothers. Esp, my bf's dark luscious skin. I love to watch us make love in mirrors..OMG sorry another day, another time. And I love my dark skinned sisters. Just not so sexually.

It makes me think of India Arie's song...singing chorus, Brown skin, you know I love your brown skin. I cant tell where yours begins, I cant tell where mine ends. Brown skin, up against my brown skin. Need some every now and then.

Where are your people from? Maybe Mississippi or an Island. Apparently your skin has been kissed by the sun. You make me want a Hershey’s kiss, your licorice.

Every time I see your lips, it makes me think of honey-coated chocolate. Your kisses are worth more than gold to me . I’ll be your almond joy, you’ll be my sugar daddy.

Are we really trying to hide the darkness because it is more accepted? Or is the reason ladies bleach their skin is to be the next Beyonce Knowles? Yes she is a beautiful women, but she herself quoted on Oprah that most of it is airbrushed. She says she looks natural like anyone else does.

But what does everyone else think - is this the main reason black women start bleaching?
