I'm just being honest here. I'm starting to think that mixed black and ____ (white, Asian, Hispanic, whatever) raced girls make it hard for a lot of guys to appreciate the looks of us full blooded black girls and find us exotic. Now, some person out there is going to say "We are all mixed with something so there's no difference." There is a difference. There's a difference between a black person who's great great grandmother is white and someone who's mother is directly white. You can see the difference in their looks. Therefore, there is a difference. So save your breath. I just feel like Afro features that are not whitened up get unappreciated and sometimes totally degraded and to be totally honest, it's annoying that mixed girls get praised for being closer to white. I'm tired of it. It sucks when a guy says he likes black girls as long as she's mixed looking. That's so offensive and disheartening and I'm tired of feeling like just because a girl is mixed even if she's a skanky bitch with no loyalty and a sh*tty personality, she'll get more male attention because she may have lighter skin, curly hair, and possibly colored eyes. I'm just so irritated. Can any other black women out there relate to what I'm talking about? What is your opinion on this topic?

i have heard the "i like black girls as long as they looked mixed or they're light skinned" line a couple times before and it's pretty sad. but as I got a little older and wiser (lol), in retrospect, why would you even want to be with a guy who believes things like this?
what I'm saying is there will be guys who will find you physically attractive for what you are. you don't want a guy that's like "oh well I guess you're good looking for a dark skinned black girl..."
basically, I wouldn't worry about it too much. another thing though is attractive girls get hit on regardless of their race so I wouldn't necessarily say a mixed girl would beat a black girl if they were both pretty. it's all about preferences at the end of the day.
i think I'm good looking and if I find a guy that thinks so as well and can appreciate me for me, then I'm happy!6
