this thread has not been made into a race issue and it is still related to the original topic.  the topic was about beyonce being attractive which lead to a discussion of "conventional beauty" and then to a discussion  of light vs.. dark"    theer was a natural progression.  it is neither wrong nor inappropriate.

as far as no one bein ghappy for her, i personaly love to see successful black people doing something positive.  and aside from that, i like beyonce and her nusic, and think he has talent.

geez, how could a "beyonce is hot board" turn into a "light vs. dark" board with a mix of "conventional beauty" board?  i'm not sure, but i will add my comments any.

1.  beyonce: she is attractive.  she has hips and a nice booty (notice i didn't say big).  she has talent and good management. as far as her hair, yeah its blondish but who cares it fits her and doesn't look bad.

2. light vs. dark:  just a little history so i need to go back to slavery for a minute.  being light during those times was an advantage.  black people with lighter skin were able to work in the house which was "easier" than working in a field.  lighter slaves had access to better food and clothing b/c the were in the house and seen as better.  u may not agree, but this is a fact.

the differences in color were used by the owners to create further divisions within the slave population.  the idea was to create turmoil within the group and there by reduce the cohesiveness and ability to unite.

fast forward:  the division bewtween lighter blacks and darker blacks continued.  light skined was considered better b/c life was perceived as "easier" especially if someone could pass.  black people enternalized the ligh vs. dark issues and as a result things such as the "paper bag test" and the "ruler test" were developed"

fast forward again to the black power movement:  black was beautiful no matter what the shade.  people embraced thier "darkness" and begin to embrace their heritage.  people began to connect with the "mother land" and embraced the african culture.  and we can't forget the emergence of the Afro.

in the 1980s:  something happened because light was right.  everybody wanted to be redbone (at least in my area).  str8 hair was the thing.  i remember how popular weave was starting to become (i also remember the curl, but thats a diiferent post).  

late 90s until present:  halle berry, beyonce, jill scott, angie stone, etc.  all women that help to represent the various shades, shapes, and sizes of blk women, yet we are still debating the light vs. dark thing.  instead of pulling each other down we should be lifting each other up (cliche, i know).  who cares if beyonce has blond weave, and jill scott has a natural?  does it really matter?  i mean they are still blk?

this board reminds me of the movie skool daze.  sepcifically, the good and bad hair scene.  if u haven't seen it u should its a good movie.  i showed certain scenes in a presentation on the division within the black community based on skin color.

btw, i didn't touch the "convential beauty" stuff b/c this post is way to long already.

people that where knock-offs or carry fake designer bags are cool with me as long as they don't try to pretend they are the real thing.

i love to go up to girls and say "where did u get that whatever" and they say "boy this ain't real.  i got this at value city for $10"

its so cool.

i had a guy think my sweater was kenneth cole and was shocked when i said i got it from walmart.  told me not to tell anybody.  screw that, i liked my little walmart sweater.
