There is an existance of internal racism. I can never forget the day my white high school track coach said we were racist of our selves. He caught us talking about each other in practice

Most definitely...colorism within the black community.  Damn shame.

I spent 4 years in Atlanta, GA.  You cannot tell me that that is all you see when you roll through the hood down there.  If so, I suggest you roll through a different hood ;).

I'm not the one out looking for cute hoodrats  :D so I'll pass. And it depends on what you call the hood. I don't deem lower to middle class black neighborhoods (ie the majority of Atlanta) as the "hood". What I consider the hood is what most people would consider the "ghetto" (I don't like calling isht the ghetto though).

When I talk to white people: I get the sense that black people with light skin are somehow "more acceptable,"
(e.g. comments such as "you're not that black," or "Oh, are you black?"

When I talk to black people: I get the sense that people with light skin are "less acceptable."
(many comments I have read on BLSD, for example,ethnic ambiguity is boring).


Hahahaha don't twist my comment to fit your point. Boring =/= "less acceptable." Find another example.

Well, there are many such comments on this board. Boring is an insult, is it not?

I'm not upset or anything. It's an interesting sentiment irrespective of the author.

Money can work wonders just look at Oprah!



Isn't that what I was saying? I'm saying the difference between Beyonce and your HS Prom Queen (if she was Black, as mine was  :D) is simply economics. The AVERAGE chica - I really think that depends on what you think is the average. Anyone can look BETTER with money but Oprah is not giving Halle Berry any competition.


Depends on what guy you ask.  Everyone has a different perception of beauty.  I don't think you can compare those two either.  Halle Berry is not bad looking without the makeup and such.

The best example in the history of mankind of money turning looks around: Chris Rock.

Oprah is the runner-up.

Your point wasn't that boring is an insult (which is debatable). You used 'boring' as an example of 'less acceptable' and again, I say NO.
