I hate questions based in race but it's something I've been noticing quite a lot. I'm black and I'm proud of who I am I don't think I'm superior to other people from my race or inferior to people from other races. For me it's just that: a color of the skin.
I noticed that people since I was little always complemented me on my looks but they always made it very clear I was the exception and always implied I must have some mixed genes because I don't have the "typical face features". I always hear something like " I'm usually not attracted to black girls but.." Or " you are so pretty for a black girl" the funny thing is that I hear this from every kind of people black, white, male, females even a gay friend of mine told me something along these lines. It doesn't make me feel proud or happy hearing these thing instead of a simple " you are attractive"
so my question is why can't black girl be pretty? And why do white guys feel the need to emphasize to me I'm the exception

Black girls that are attractive to me are the ones who don't blame their dark skin for all their problems in dating and relationships, which is why i tend to find African (specifically nigerian) black women more attractive than canadian/american ones because their self confidence, appreciation for themselves, and lack of thirstiness is especially attractive to me. Not all, but a good number of black women here have become way too insecure for my liking, and its difficult for me to be in the same room with someone who hates being black so much, and who needs the approval of non black so badly. So basically, its the mindset that is more unattractive to me than the way they look a lot of the time1

Huh... nice question I felt the same way I mixed my father is black Iranian and my mother is Colombian but I grew up feeling out place cause I didn't realize why people would not like me for being black and black kids wouldn't like me for not being fully black and wondering why people didn't like black people I'm proud also of who I am but it is 2015 and I get a lot of " you're for being black" what does that means? That black is ugly? We are all made in different colors and I came to the conclusion of just loving people no matter if they're black white or whatever I think we should just realize that we all have feeling and we are just humans.0
