    I'm not going to lie Rom. It may sound shallow and picky on my end but this is why, facially speaking, I want a woman that has a certain look. Just like you, I'm a FACE man, even though I know you appreciate a nice ass as well. Beauty matters to me a lot as far as choosing a mate is concerned because I know that if I have children, how they look will ultimately determine their dating life and sometimes how they will be treated by others. So my attitude is, it's either I strive to have attractive children or none at all. What do you think about that? Perhaps you can do a video on it.

    I notice a lot of black women, especially on Twitter, are IN LOVE with light skin dudes. You can tell just by reading the comments. Personally, I think it's all about facial features (nose, symmetry, lips, bone structure, etc) that ultimately determines how handsome/good looking a man is (pause). It's all about the face and the features, not about the skin tone.

    I’m just fed up with black people talking about light skin and dark skin shit, I think black are so stupid. White people don’t talk about black hair or blonde hair or darker white people the way black people emphasize on this shit

    There's no debate. This community has stuffed light skinned black men away as if they don't exist, while pushing the masculinity of dark skinned black men. Negating everything light skinned brothers have to offer. Including not being a bunch of bitter bitches on youtube that bash black women.
    Wake up black woman!!! you have options ..these light-skinned men are gorgeous, they're good men and they're our men.

    What's up Big Rom, Female's are the ones who pick and choose if she pick dark most of the time it will make an arc of light that strikes the mind that will never be forgotten if she choses brighter it'll probably end in strife because her decision wasn't right chosen dark there has to be light at the end of the tunnel bronze skin will always win.

    I feel like this here: It comes down to ONE THING: A woman's PREFERENCE. A lot of dark skin women like yella brothers like myself, a lot of yellabone & red chicks like chocolate brothers like yourself. Also his facial features as you stated, his body type and charisma/personality weighs on heavily on a woman's preference. I always put my younger home boys on game about that and even these older cats around here. Right now on my team, I have two caramel chicks that's going crazy, one high yella chick crying to get with me and two dark chocolate females that's waiting in line to get @ me but I tell them all, "Baby look here, you know I'm a player and I ain't tryna be with JUST ONE WOMAN because it's too many of y'all" and look, EVERY last one of them 5 women either be pleading to me why I shouldn't be like that or call me a dog/player and I tell them all, "I know baby but I got your mind so I know that you know that I know that you ain't going nowhere"….. Having many OPTIONS fellas is how you attract a wide spectrum of women, regardless of your complexion brothers.

    Really and truly this light skin/dark skin debate among men really stem from who is getting play and what side thinks they got it better.
    Dark skin men swear up and down that light skin men got it better, but light skin men are now coming forward saying how dark skin, chocolate brothas are getting chosen over them.
    Really and truly this all boils down to the WOMEN because it's more likely that dark skin women want light skin men and light skin women want dark skin men.
    However it is the MEN who get accused of ''self hating'' and being ''colorstruck' even when a light skin woman has NEVER been with a light skin man OR even when a dark skin woman has NEVER been with a dark skin man!
    What is also funny is that when it comes to this whole light skin/ dark skin thing you don't really see light skin men hating on light skin women or not trying to get at them and neither do you see much dark skin women hating on dark skin men, BUT ironically the only group of women who DISCRIMINATE ON and openly hate on light skin/mixed guys ESPECIALLY when it comes to dating are light skin/mixed WOMEN who are just as light skin or mixed as the guys the discriminate against and hate on!!

    We're all the same, one brothers (unit as one). Black women are stupid asf. I stay with Asian because they're simple and don't give a fck about color. Most Asian girls prefer love over color.

    Dark, brown and light skinned black men are good. It also depends on their features and personality. Arrogant men with bad personalities can be a turn off, no matter how good they look or what skin color. However, I have no issues with men of various colors. I had dark skinned, brown, white, Hispanic and light skinned boyfriends.

    Dark skin men are deemed as manly, rugged and strong, light skin men are pretty, too cute to work hard, and are usually more educated and effeminate, even in gay porn it's always the dark skin man fucking the light skin man. LOL

    I seen the comment and mindset is the biggest issue with not only megros but everybody because it is bigger then petty classification for that is just the icing on top just to put somebody in a category for slander and stereotyping. The morality needs changing not the classification because that's a cover up to ignore how behavior are form base on the mindset they where nurtured in.

    I think what causes this debate is that most dark skin guys are seeing light skin guys get dark skin girls easily, while light skin guys are seeing dark skin guys get light skin girls easily. This is an epidemic, but one that is caused by the women, which proves one thing:
    Black women as a whole have a propensity to be unloyal.

    Big bro its amazing to me that in a time where black men and women are being systematically targeted by police we are even having this issue.  Back in the 60's when we had these problems black men of all shades stuck together even in the early 90's during the days of conscious rap this wasn't an issue but lately that's all I hear and I don't understand it.  Whats funny to me is I have two older brothers my oldest brother was brown skinned by middle brother was dark and I was light skinned now because I worked in the sun for years I have gotten a lot darker but I was the red one for years but my dark skinned brother always got all of the girls even my brown skinned brother was a pretty boy me not so much because I was not the most confident person.  So to sum up this rant complexion means nothing it the grand scheme.

    Rom, though I think everything you said about women's preferences was correct (Nice bone structure, fit body, and charisma) I honestly think you weren't giving the full context concerning the whole "light vs dark skinned" debate. it seems to me you failed to mention the emphasis of skin tone that BW have towards B.M.

    The One thing BM need to realize is even though skin tone isn't a final determining factor it's still a factor never the less. if you take a light skinned black man and a dark skinned black men who are both in shape with the perfect bone structure , most of the time a BW will pick the light skinned dude.

    Dark skinned dudes need to compensate more than light skinned dudes. I mean you said it yourself in a video regarding Mr. Goodbar. You stated a dark skinned dude had to be dam near perfect to be a Mr. Goodbar. Look at brothas like Morris, Westley, Terry Crews, tyrese etc. They all had the combination of perfect bodies with masculine deep voices to get all that attention while niggas like Chris Brown, August Alsina and Drake get an unlimited supply of attention despite having bodies similar to 12 year old boys going through puberty.

    I'm not tryna completely debunk your claim at all, I'm just saying a dark skinned dude probably needs to spend some more time in the gym and work on he's game a lot more than he's light skinned counterpart. Light skinned dudes have it a bit easier than dark skinned dudes as far as women are concerned. But at the same time you were giving great points that I think men needed to hear

    I'm light skin. Most women I been with are non black women. Most black women in America prefer dark skin man. In Latin America and Caribbean. Skin color matters for women in the sexual and dating world. I been to Latin America women of color prefer light skin man.

    On point video as usual! This definitely aggregate my whole point of what I been saying the longest. I been got off that color shit a long time ago, way back in grade school and also after too where I picked on and learned a lot of shit! That's why I emphasize on self development so much and becoming the best you. When you're doing that, you won't have time to worry about that shit because it's all about focusing on what's important in life because that doesn't pay any bills, don't put any " money in your pocket and it doesn't give you any stability! As far as that color tone war shit, it doesn't really matter because I'll give you an example, my father was light skinned and the women were going crazy over him because I'll admit, my father was a very good looking guy, genetically he was blessed with good features because his father which is my grandfather was mixed. My uncles on the other end was dark skinned. They were getting just as many women! Especially my younger uncle! He was literally getting different women on a consistent basis, attractive ones too and they were light complexion I'll admit, he didn't have the most built body but he was a nice looking guy who kept his appearance up and he had style along with swag!!!!!

    It depends on if you're inside or outside. Outside, dark-skins look better. Sweat get to glistening, it look like diamonds and stuff then they get excited. I know cuz that's me. But inside though, them light-skinned dudes got it. Everywhere they stand is like a damn photo opportunity. When they get to hitting them poses, the ladies lose it. I know cuz that's my step-son. Just look at the thumbnail for the video, lol. But yea, this is not even a real thing. Don't try to attribute why she don't want you to your skin color bruh..

    I have never seen a red headed white man with freckles arguing with a Blonde haired white man with blue eyes over who's White. To my knowledge Africa has more phenotype than every other continent. I refuse to build with new Black men, because I've conditioned myself to know a lot are petty, stupid, and will sabotage productive things.

    Two reasons why there is a "light skin vs. dark skin" debate amongst "Black" men:

    1) A small contingent of truly colorstruck niggas.

    2) Simps pandering to the egos of "Black" hoes. Not decent or upstanding women, but HOES.

    Its true. Brothas here in the UK don't give a damn about skin tone except when it comes to women.

    I dont want my US brothas to take this the wrong way, but a few UK dudes are taking on the American light skin/darkskin disses because of ppl like Charlemagne tha God and social media memes.

    Again only a few. But the good news is once these UK brothas get money and get laid they're cool. I am sure its the same with BM in the states LOL! But with black women warring about skintone over here? Almost identical to women in the states!

    Exactly!!!! Brothas in the colorism debate need to stop. If a woman doesnt want you, fuck it move on and respect her preference. No reason to hate on the next black man. Work on your mouthpiece, button up, hit the gym and you will be just fine!!! We are black men, theres not a woman on this earth that doesn't want a taste… weather its light or dark. We are the alphas of the earth. Let's Act like it.
