Documentary: Dark Girls: Preview

This is not a “preference,” we’ve been programmed to think this way.

  1. I am so numb, digusted, broken, & even in awe by this video. The truth in the emotions & words; the passion & the sadness I saw, the little girl picking the light skin vs the dark skin girl. It’s just too much to digest. The pain, the stupidity, the way we are so lost as a people. I’m done.

      Nivia,
      I almost didn’t post this video becuase it is so painful and difficult to watch. I cried and I was overcome with emotion, as well, especially after hearing the male’s comments in the video. I look forward to seeing this documentary, however. It’s long overdue and hopefully, it will help to educate the younger generations of Black men and women who think that their affinity for lighter skinned individuals is simply “a preference.” It just isn’t that cut and dry.

      The type of dialogue this video will foster can only help to heal us as a people, as disturbing and sad as it may be. Thanks for visiting the site!

Basketball is like that fine chick that's exciting but she's ALWAYS around. You get bored quickly. Football is that chick that gives you just enough, but keeps you wanting more...
