--To me, just because someone is black culturally, does not mean he or she is black by skin color, LOL.--

Don't get me wrong, I follow the same perspective, I'm just able to see it from both sides. Anyone who follows the "one-drop" european racial system (read: most americans) are supposed to distinguish between those who are "pure" white and those who only "look" white. Those women in my post aren't making an extreme effort to pass for white (except the last one).
But I'm sure we both agree that this is definetly why the european(and american) racial system is faulty. Those 99% afromerican argued with are just a few of many who have fallen for a decetive system that is now conveiniently breeding dark women out with it's perplxed philosophy.
A little fact for everyone: some White biracials have been able to qualify for affirmative action if they check "african american" on an application. Something to think about.
