Discrimination against black women dating ancient flood dating
Light skinned women also complain they are unfairly stereotyped as having a superiority complex over darker women. Fortunately, Elnora Web, President of Laney College in Oakland, CA, sums it up nicely: “There is something related to color that we have bought as a society -across the board – that somehow associates excellence, associates promise, associates possibilities, associates competence, intelligence, and worthiness, with a lighter hue.And somehow the darker you are, the less likely you are to be of any asset, or let alone, any contribution or success in society”. All I’ll say is that “something” is wrong, and the just-hate-one-son-of-a-bitch-at a-time motto is looking better all the time.Bald is so cool now that men who aren’t bald buzz their hair so short they might as well be (Wayne Rooney, Jason Statham, Tyler Perry, and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson).

When they don’t hear something we say, they are accused of not understanding us, instead of having trouble hearing.
When they get angry, they’re called “cranky”, even though that’s diagnosing a chronic personality trait from a temporary mood.
In the 19th century, baldness for men meant wearing a wig if they were to have any kind of public or professional life.
The 20th century’s youth-obsessed culture viewed baldness as old age incarnate, and fueled a billion dollar hair care and restoration industry.
They start from the innocuous “Light Bright” and “Mocha”, and quickly devolve to more derogatory terms as shades darken (‘high yellow’, ‘piss yellow’, ‘redbone’, ‘midnight’, ‘burnt’ and ‘crispy’).
