    I have 4 sons.

    1 is dark and physical the most attractive now that they are older ...
    But when they were younger .... the lightest 2 with longer hair and curly hair Black Women would make the most Cringeworthy Bullshyt comments about them 2 only. Even my own mother and older women in my family ...would punish the darker two more
    We have to understand how deep brainwashing goes.
    My sons are more privileged than the average lil nikkas growing up so most of this wont really affect them but

    When you combine being in the hood, with the media, with our women who control the culture (along with gay nikkas)..... then I can see how some guys build up a resentment from being prejudged.

    On the flipside... one of my cousin was called a soft lightkin fakkit ass nikka his whole life.... he became a savage to overcompensate. A bunch of al b sure, genwine style nikkas overcompensated because of the association of light with more feminine.

    What's funny is...
    You said "honorary "

    You have to really be around the black community to even understand those types of intricacies or even wtf that means and the privileges associated

    It’s a mixed bag. You see brown and dark skinned men being promoted as the face of black masculinity and sexuality, but in terms of everyday life, lighter black men tend to eat very well. Just as well as dark skinned men. Especially if that lighter dude has features that aren’t normal for black men(curly hair, light eyes). Many women claim they don’t like light skinned men, due to insecurities and the perception of dark skinnned men being thirstier and thus more likely to chase, simp, and court them. It’s a defense mechanism with many black women. I’m not complaining. I don’t think men should care about colorism or how we’re perceived outside of how it effects our job status, dealing with law enforcement, etc. But as far as colorism and skintone is concerned regarding “Who do women prefer more” or “Which skintone of black men are sex symbols” we shouldn’t care. Let the women cry about that stuff. I’ve never been offended over light skinned men eating. :dame:

    Only thing I can think of that almost every Black man does

    The shape up. I feel like the traditional shape up is meant to replicate how the white mans edges grow in

    And OF COURSE any type of hair straightening.

    Colorism is huge here as it is worldwide, but I was trying to think of things that any Breh can do grooming-wise.

    It’s all subjective.

    But how many dark-skin non gangster/hustler rappers have made it big time?

    The darkest is Ye and he’s a generational talent.

    I also missed out Big Sean.

    some dark skin black people don’t want to admit it. But dark skin people get treated the worse generally. School, hospital judicial system everything.

    but people only want to talk about the dating marketplace where dark skin males are competitive

    I would have to say no. Mixed/light skinned men are also popular with women, but they don’t overshadow dark skinned dudes. Idris Elba, Morris Chestnut, Tyrese, Tyson Beckford, Denzel, the Luke Cage actor etc. are considered highly attractive in and out of the community. And even in porn, the top actors of choice :dame: are almost always dark.

    Black men on all ends of the spectrum are popular (maybe except *extremely* dark dudes), whereas light skinned/mixed women unfortunately overshadow their darker counterparts and are popular at their expense (I personally like darker women more than lighter).

    Exactly, it’s a fetish and weak as hell.

    I know a family of mixed women like this.

    They only date the darkest men they can find then move like they’re ashamed when the kids come out with African features.

    One of the kids is my sister’s goddaughter and my sister told me her friend wouldn’t hold her own daughter for 2 hours after she gave birth.

    She pushed her out, looked at her, passed her to my sister then said, “I’m taking a nap.”
