Don't worry ladies, there`s enough black men impregnating white women these days, it should even up the lighter skin colors soon. All you beautiful black ladies should jump on the band wagon and hook up with us white guys, and REALLY get the ball rolling.At 44 years old, I`ve only met a handful of african american women interested in white men, compared to black men interested in white women.It`s a shame. Us white guys have alot to offer too.

am saddened that someone else from a multicultural society would have such a negative view towards what is apparently a very serious problem. Yet another canadian who does not represent the majority of us here

I've heard racist people talking. From what I`ve heard the main reason why they are racist is because where dark people congregate (live) it is normally dirty and dangerous and the crime is high. I think they associate dark skin with all of those things. Not sure if they all actually care about the color of a persons skin. They just associate things way too often. The only skin I don`t think is beautiful is overly tanned, orange skin, lol.

This baffles me. I recently had a chance to visit another part of the country where the "black" skin tone was on average much darker than it is where I live. I was stunned by the beauty of it, I couldn't believe just how much more my eye was drawn to it. I openly gawked at times, feeling foolish, but the beauty was almost overpowering to me.

To think that dark skin is less beautiful, just seems so silly.

Of course I also think its just stupid to think that any color skin is "better" than any other as well. I felt almost racist simply because I felt that the darker skinned people I was seeing were so stunning... but I consoled myself with thinking that at least if I were being racist in some manner it was opposite of the normal stereotype.
