Serenasailer:

Actually some of the darkest skinned ppl are the biggest sellouts. They are the ones with the issues about their skin color. So they are the biggest sellouts. I hate to sterotype dark-skinned black ppl like that but thats how many of them act. That is what I notice here in L.A. I notice that the chocolate brothas are the ones sporting all the different races.

Tonya:

Uh-uhhh, Serenasailer!

Along with the chocolate brothas, lightskinned women ARE the biggest sellouts. I grew up around alot of lighskinned women, was raised by them, had only them for friends, so trust me, I know. They say shit amongst themselves that they would not DARE say out in the open. They (along with dark brothers) are the MOST hateful, MOST colorist towards darkskinned women.. all while smiling in these same women's faces. Trust me brotha... You just don't know...

And when I use to object to them dogging darkskinned women out that way, you know what they'd say to me?: "oh, I'm not talking about you, girl (and when I was younger "sweetie") you're 'cute to be darkskinned'." No lie!
