I ask this out of curiosity. I have a friend who is mixed and obviously has several insecurities about herself. She feels that the typical white female (for lack of better words) with very wavy, flowing hair and light skin is superior in attractiveness. It doesn't help that her brother and literally all of his friends are only attracted to white females. I completely understand preferences but they speak as if light skin is a gift from God.
I have never felt insecure about my skin color in any way (my family has always loved dark skin) but it's hard to not have some doubts when your friend, her brother, and all of his friends clearly believe that those with fair skin and straight/wavy hair are more attractive. Almost as if someone like me, with skin the color of a Hershey bar and super thick curls, does not add up. Or like I'm just that one girl who's kind of cute but will never be beautiful because of my skin color.
Do most guys feel this way? I know of course there are some guys who do like dark skin. But I'm asking about the majority. Please give honest answers, I'm curious to know if most guys feel like my friend's brother and his friends feel.

Skin color has never really been anything I've cared about. I've dated redhead Irish girls who were blue-white, and I've dated black girls that were African -black, and just about everything in between. It really never even occurred to me to care about the shade of their skin.0
