Our culture

Recommended Posts

I was having a discussion with my girlfriend and I have come to the conclusion that our sub-culture (by our culture, I mean uk urban grime/hip hop) serves to socialise us into finding light skin girls more attractive.That’s not to say, that we’re meant to find dark skin girls ugly and light girls choongBut we’ve been socialised into EXPECTING the lighter skin girl to be prettierThink about it rap videos and lyrics, artists like jay-z continually praising the light skin girlEven us man when we’re telling someone about a girls choong friend, if she’s light, “she was with some choong light skin thing” if shes dark “she was with some next choong thing”Heads that claim that light skin girls are overrated, do u still find yourself expecting the light skin girl to be prettier wen told about a couple of females by a friendMy question to u is…. Do u think u’ve been socialised to slyly think this way?And to the light skin/ mixed race people of the forumViolet claims that shes never seen any real evidence in real life (not the media) for the idea that some people only hype up others cuz their mixed or lightIs this the same 4 u?

No sending but your girl is a Grade A twit if she thinks that, that's not even being oblivious but anyway....It's still the whole mental slavery/house-field ninja complex ain't it. I mean, what REGULAR stream of media do WE have portraying beautiful women of colour?Saying that, I also think we, like any race like variety. It's the whole 'exotic' argument. I've said sh*t like ''Drew one Cubano ting when I was in the States'. It's not really a self-hate ting but more, a Mandingo/Conqueror ting, if that made sense....

Yeah, I'm like SlyDiggs, I have stages sometimes...I was on the light-skinned girls a couple months ago...I'm on Black/Latino mixes right now...It's more of a male thing though. (no homo)But being a Black man helps SO much. Trust.

Not really about skin tone, but mixed-women generally are good looking...no denying that

Yes and yes (altough I'm not getting this sub-culture talk. Black Urban culture is not worthy of being it's own?)

Thing is, when I find an OUTSTANDING dark-skinned chick, I CHERISH them...Like finding a rare Pokemon card.

Yesand possibly.. but my reason is due to personal experience.. I personally havent seen that many busted lighties (im sure there are loads) but Ive seen alot of busted darkies... and im taking about everyday life not on tv or whatever

But relatively speaking to outstanding light skinned girls, they are few and far between right?
