For decades and ever since I can remember, light skin people have always been considered inferior, beautiful, fine or better looking than dark skin people. It’s a sick twisted fallible that some believe to be true because of a certain complexion. Be it light skin or dark skin., this might be “one’s” preference.
This color thing, light skin blacks verses dark skin blacks, originated in slavery. The man, the master separated the light skin slaves from the dark skin slaves, even having his light skin slaves working in-house in his mansion, while the dark skin slaves labored in his fields. The masters considered light skin blacks closer to white and easily acceptable.
So how did such self-hatred seep into the black culture? Slave masters ignited it when they separated their light skin house slaves from their dark skin field slaves. The dark skin slaves working in the field hated the light skin slaves working in the masters house. The light skin slaves were supposedly treated better, secretly worshipped and somewhat accepted. Why? Because that slave master was raping that black slave to begin with, which produced the light skin outcome from the slave masters seed.
