"Poll question: Do AF-Ams tend to date their skin color?"
Thu Apr-03-14 10:31 AM by Buddy_Gilapagos

  

          

I am always kind of, for lack of a better word, taken aback when I see two very light skinned people together. It just doesn't look natural to me.

Generally it seems like my light skin friends tend to seek out darker skin SOs and my darker skin friends seek out light skin SOs.

The only time I see a trend of people dating the same skin color is when folks are sort of an even middle of the road brown skin. They tend to date folks their same complexion.

I had a theory that all black people will eventually end up a sort of a middle of the road brown with enough time (all people in fact given enough time).

Anyone else notice that or am I making it up?

I am just trying to do some non-scientific research to see if there are any observable trends in skin color dating.


On an unrelated (or is it?) note: Y'all seen #desusgate? Apparently there are a growing amount of people on twitter who thinks he is white. OKP know better but not black twitter.
