Stereotypes About Light-Skinned Black Men That We Need To Put To An End

- By

Light-skinned men are conceited.

Conceited isn’t a light-skinned quality, it’s a cocky, arrogant man quality.  I’ve seen guys who make Shabba Ranks look like Trey Songz fighting their woman for the mirror.  I think when some women are rejected, we set a dangerous pattern of associating all men with the boy in middle school who told us we were ugly or checked “No” on our “Do you like me?” note.  Then we make all kinds of excuses for why we aren’t attracted to guys like that, when the truth is on some level we think they are off limits to us.  Besides, every man who takes pride in their appearance isn’t conceited.
