Racial Psychology: Why Do Black People Want to be White?

Imagine if, tomorrow morning, you woke up and found that every white woman you saw was wearing an Afro wig and had painted themselves black.

Not just one white woman, or even a few, or a “trend,” but EVERY white woman.

What would you think?

Would you think there was something strange going on?

Would you not wonder what would drive every white woman to want to hide their natural hair and deliberately adopt another race’s physical features?

You would, no doubt, think it very weird.

If every white woman you saw was “trying to be black,” you would correctly assume that there was some deep, dark, psychological process at work.

Perhaps some sort self-hatred, envy, desire to emulate . . . something.

Doubtless there would be TV shows about the phenomenon, about what psychological sea-change had occurred to make this happen . . .

Yet strangely enough, almost all black people today have gone to the most extreme measures to appear as white as possible—and no-one has dared to explain it on a racial psychological level – except, of course, to blame white people for “racism.”

Black hair straighteners, or “relaxers” as they are now deviously called, have flooded the world market. They are as common in Africa as they are among black populations in Europe and America.

Everywhere you look, African females suddenly have straight or “good” hair, as they call it.

The black comedian Chris Rock has even made a film about the phenomenon, called “Good Hair” which revealed that his community spends $5,000 per treatment to get “good” (i.e. straight) hair and that the industry is worth $9 billion a year in America alone.

You hardly see a “natural” haired African person any more.

Black males, such as Barack Obama, now keep their hair closely cropped to avoid being seen with “African” hair.

In addition, skin lighteners are all the rage, with a lighter skin tone being openly acknowledged as being “better” and associated with beauty and intelligence amongst black communities.

The Associated Press recently looked into why and how more and more people in Jamaica’s slums are “using skin bleaching cream to ‘lighten’ their complexions. Skin lightening is nothing new, especially in third world countries in Africa and also in India, which boasts the biggest marketplace for these dangerous creams.” According to the AP, “hardcore bleachers use illegal ointments smuggled into the Caribbean country that contain toxins like mercury, a metal that blocks production of melanin, which give skin its color, but can also be toxic.”

Hair relaxers are also dangerous chemicals which “work” by breaking the bonds which naturally strengthen hair. In other words, “straight” hair on Africans is chemically-damaged hair.

side-products1There are numerous side effects to hair relaxers, varying from extreme scalp burns to hair loss. One of the “unknown” side products (unknown to white people, at least) is something called “Temple Balm” which is applied to the temples of black females in an attempt to generate a full head of hair as part of the illusion.

White people are also mostly ignorant of the extent to which blacks wear wigs as part of their everyday wardrobe.  In fact, most “long” hair that one sees on black females today is a wig or what is called a “hair extension” (fake or human hair bonded into the wearer’s real hair to create the illusion of long flowing locks).

This process actually requires glue and adhesive, another “side product” virtually unknown to white people.

The big questions remain:

(1) why do black people, en masse, want to look like white people? And

(2) what would people say if ALL white females wanted to have Afro hair?

To answer the first question, some liberals and black activists have resorted to the old standby excuse: blame white “racism.”

This line first came to prominence in the 1960s, during the famous “Brown vs Board of Education,” which was a school desegregation court case in America. Part of the proceedings including a film of an experiment conducted by black activist Kenneth Clark.

Black children were shown two identical dolls, one dark-skinned and the other white-skinned. When asked which one they preferred, almost all chose white doll. This was presented to the court as “evidence” of racial stereotyping which segregation had caused, and was pivotal in persuading the court to order desegregation (the events are detailed outlined in Carleton Putnams’s book, Race and Reality).

The argument was that black children aspired to be white because of “racism” and segregation, and that if they were allowed to mix freely with whites, this sense of self-inferiority would vanish.

The interesting part is that this experiment was conducted once again in 2007 in New York City by a young black filmmaker, Kiri Davis. Using identical props, young black kids at a school in the city were asked to choose the “best” doll.

Six decades after desegregation, the results were identical.

The black children said that the white dolls were better and that the black dolls were bad. They even identified themselves with the black dolls, when specifically asked. The video, which unintentionally also reveals many other racial psychological insights, can be seen here.

In other words, sixty years plus of desegregation has not done away with the black desire to be white – and this is nowhere better reflected than in the huge hair relaxer and skin lightener business.

The blame for a “desire to be white” can therefore no longer be put at the door of “segregation” (i.e. white people’s fault.)

The real reason for the white doll experiment results, the hair relaxer and skin lightener craze, is simply that the white aesthetic norm is desired by all races.

This is the simple fact, and it is nothing short of wicked and malicious to “blame” white people for this reality.

If tomorrow morning, all white women started applying chemicals to themselves to look black and started wearing Afro wigs, society would question their psychological well-being, not blame black people.

The time is surely long past for some racial reality in the world today.

Recommended reading:  Race and Reason: A Yankee View and Race and Reality: A Search for Solutions by Carelton Putnam. Both these classic works are now back in print from Ostara Publications.

The author was one of America’s foremost writers on racial matters. Holding science and law degrees from Princeton and Columbia universities, he was founder and president of Chicago & Southern Airlines, which later merged with another company to become Delta Air Lines. Putnam served as chief executive of Delta, and remained a director until his death in 1998.

Race and Reason was his first book which explained the reality of race in the face of a determined assault on racial realism in the 1960s. Written in question and answer format, this book answers every liberal argument on race with passion, reason, compassion, and intellect. It is a testament to the fact that some people, at least, understood racial dynamics at the height of the “civil rights” assault on Western Civilization.

Race and Reality is the sequel to his earlier work, Race and Reason. Written in the form of a midnight soliloquy, Race and Reality recounts the author’s experiences with the scientific hierarchy. It reviews the evidence for racial differences, the crisis facing the white world, and tells the inside story of the Stell trial and explores the methods by which the truth about it has been evaded and ignored.

Finally, in a question and answer section similar to that in Race and Reason, it deals with the scores of related issues which so often confuse the central problem. In the last two chapters, it focuses on that problem and proposes a solution.

  1. Funny and its true. I had several black guys wanted to look differently by skin and look like whites guys where I’m from.

      1. eminem has bleached blonde hair, just cause he raps doesnt make him want to be black. he doesnt rap about pimps and hoes

        is every black who wears shoes, or a suit or jeans trying to be white?

      2. why does the white rapper issue always lead to eminem? he wasn’t the first white rapper and he won’t be the last. the beastie boys were white rappers long before eminem. not every white rapper wants to be like eminem.

          1. FOR ALL : D

            If the intellectually honest will bother to do some serious research THEY WILL FIND Jews don’t ever claim TO BE “white”. 1)

            Jews will LET YOU ASSUME whatever is politically advantageous FOR THEIR TRIBE.

            Jews do love it when misinformed people will blame THE “WHITE man” for what The ruling Jewish oligarchy have done and are STILL doing, and yet are NEVER held accountable for their misdeeds – BY ANYONE.

            1) According to the Supreme Court it was also established by Justice Byron White that Jews are NOT White in the 1987 U.S. Supreme Court Case of Shaare Tefila Congregation vs. John William Cobb, 481 U.S. 615.

            http://www.oyez.org/cases/1980-1989/1986/1986_85_2156

            In that case the Jews were successful in being classified as non-whites by applying an 1865 Civil Rights decision which was written to insure recently freed blacks from being discriminated against by whites including Jews.

            Jews indoctrinate their own with this same umbrella theme:

            IM NOT WHITE IM JEWISH

            http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7iSrGQ1cwxM

            Jews consider themselves a unique race which is filled with multiracial melting pot.

  2. Because people would rather be lighter or closer to white so they can escape all the difficulties that come with being a black person. Being that the majority of America is white (Due to colonization of America), The perception of what beauty is depends on what the majority is. That causes people to want to be like everyone else (white) and not want to be like the group of people that is portrayed as ugly or just not as good looking because they are the minority, although every race is beautifully in their own way. The perception of beauty is just an opinion, and when that opinion is plastered on billboards and TV ads, people will try and imitate it to be beautiful. If Afros and black people were all over magazines, TV ads, and billboards the perception of what beauty is would be different, then white people would be changing themselves to meet the standard of beauty.

    1. Note so my friend. In India the majority of people are darker skinned. Why would the darker skinned people who has never been oppressed try to have lighter skin color like the Indians from the North of India. These are more closely related to the Iranian etc.

      Truth can not be argued away, sorry.

      1. The darker skinned Indians have been oppressed. For a long time there was a racist system in India called the Caste system where the darker skinned Indians were the lower caste such as the Sudras and the Dalits (aka Black Untouchables) and the lighter skinned Indians were the higher caste such as the Brahmins.

      2. So true, in india all celebs want to look white it seems, all indian men want a blonde girl, it saddens me, but all blacks want to be white, but hispanics are happy with themselves, yet the whites want to look tanned, more asian middle eastern…. it will never end…. we all must accept it

        1. Not true, not every black person wants to be white. I think black women want to be white women more than black men wanting to be white men. I agree it’s ridiculous, but please don’t say everybody. I don’t want to be white. A lot of black women though do have identity issues.

    2. Ok if that’s the case then why is THE top makeup product IN the world a product that makes the skin look whiter?? ASIANS Women are mainly the reason for this too.. Its a world thing not an American things and blonde females with white skin make up a very small percentage of world population yet get most of the praise! Whether you like it or not, it is the truth.

    3. I disagree. White, Indian, coloured, and Chinese South Africans who are in the minority are not changing their appearance to look like black majority.

      1. Okay let’s even assume the white pple did a bad bad thing, by tam we got over it man. Now that we hv d opportunity to do things ourselves, let’s forget the past and do smtin meaningful with our lives.
        If we sit here and sulk over the wounds on our legs, we won’t move forward and if we don’t move forward, we shld be rest assured dat the worst is yet to happen cos no one is ever going to respect sm1 who’s not resourceful.. So stop blaming white pple and take a stand for urself. By tam, we moved forward y’all. We cn start dat by accepting ourselves, physiologically and psychologically.

    4. True. Blond-haired Bette Midler was raised in Hawaii; she said she grew up envious of the beautiful, thin Hawaiian girls.

      In Africa, the white Missionary kids who grew up around all Africans, gradually had their sense of beauty changed: they wanted to be black!

      And like you said: advertising is designed to make EVERYONE unhappy with their looks, so they rush out to spend $$ on stupid products.

      1. T – don’t know where you get that from but I have never known any whites who wanted to be black. So that is nonsense about Missionary kids.

    5. Can’t agree with the “majority” theory OK. In Africa we (white)are the minority by much but the choice of the majority (black) still aspire to be white!! Advertising & billboards are also targeted towards the majority & “we” do not aspire to be like the majority. Another theory?

      1. How do you think that would be knowing that the Afrikaners owned all the land and money, and even opressed the black majority with apartheid for a long long time?
        The majority of indigenous africans are proud to be african and black, believe me on that.
        It is only a minority that really wants to be white so they would not have to deal with all these social status issues anymore.

        1. Uhm Rutger, it is obvious you are not from Africa because if you were, you would have known that there are many Asians (Indians and those from the East), who are Multi Millionnaires but never advertise it. Both those in Durban, Johannesburg and also Cape Town. Even more so than the farmers!

          1. PullofunaPullo

            - Edit

            Africa is not South Africa or Johannesburg. South Africa is too Westernized of an African country to be even considered African at times. Most Africans are proud people not suffering from inferiority complex

    6. We have now had a few decades of intense Political Correctness, according to which blacks are absoulutely perfect and saying anything remotely critical about them is considered racist. Yet, is it really racist if you think white look better than blacks? Little black kids have not experienced any racism, yet they prefer white dolls. Jesse Jackson was all excited that Vanessa Williams became Miss America but she looked more white than black. Ella Fitzgerald was very popular and very black but Beyonce obviously prefers to look white. Who can blame her (except politically correct nuts)?

  3. It’s not true in the least bit.

    If anything, I find it be the other way around.

    A lot of white people want to be black so bad, they do dumb shit to appear like they’re cool. Until they’re reminded that they’re just caucasian :(

    1. Many white youth take on bits and pieces of black culture, because frankly, its part of american/culture and they can appreciate it. At the end of the day though, they take off their doo rags, baggy pants, and oversized t-shirts and are still perfectly white. When they get older, or look for a job, believe me they won’t dress, act, or talk like they are anything but white. No matter how hard blacks strive to be white, they can’t peel their melanin cells off and be white. It just doesn’t work that way. No matter how many skin bleaching treatments and hair perms they get, they are still black. It is what it is. Its sad that even black children don’t see their own race as something attractive. Nobody wants to be black barbie.

    2. Really? Then how do you explain all these Blacks bleaching their skins with toxic skin peelers, straightening their hair and sticking plastic up their noses to make it look long and narrow? And honestly, they look ridiculous as you can see the frizzy hair on their hairlines. Some of them are even going bald but still persist in playing White.
      No Whites that I know want to be black.

  4. In my opinion it is not the desire to look white.It seems like schools jobs stores restaurants and society in general will accept people better if they looked more “white”.Thus a defense mechanism.

  5. The sad fact is that natural african style has been made to look unprofessional, and unattractive in media do you think people would take him seriously if he wore an afro or had long black locks obviously not because those styles are for hippies and “crazy white people”

  6. Perms and weaves is a good way to say your not poor. it takes ALOT of money to maintain and keep weaves and perms vs just natural plus its all about time if I was to wear a afro I might as well go back to the 70s and jump in the soul train line, but soul train is played out just like afros so do you see us still using 8 track tapes no we all use ipads so should I go off on the world and say yall wrong for not using 8 track tapes and yall dont appreciate your history of 8 track tapes no we have all thistechnology all these beauty products there is no reason why we should be using 8 track tapes or wearing afros at the end of the day all im saying is a afro

  7. The only problem here is that one day a guy thought “I must create a new image to sell my product. I know, I’m gonna use a prototype person and everyone will want to be like that”. And then, it began the ilusion of “beauty”, with only one way to be: white, slim, tall, “well shaped” noses, white teeth, etc. It happens to women of all races, and every ad tells you: you are ugly and old. We can sell to you a miraculous sh*t to make you hot and forever young- And to be “perfect”, as the want us to believe, we must eat nothing and have several surgeries to change our parents facial features. We all have our own beautiful characteristics, because that makes us unique, we are not mass-created barbies. If you search, you will find that every “beautiful” actress, model or whatever…never has a happy-ending guaranteed, most of the times is the opposite. Love is beyond that image, you are loved because of what you really are, yourself.

    1. Yes. Beauty is nothing but an opinion, but its been made into something soo much more because of what other people advertise as beautiful.

    2. NOPE LOL

      men have desires in beauty that correspond with good genetics and healthy offspring

      you libtards idea that everyone is brainwashed by advertising is laughable.

      People have opinions on everything about what is best (cars,sports,schools) you really dont think there would be a general consensus on who is the most beatiful.

      infact beauty is determind by facial symmetry. The more perfect your facial symmetry is the more handsome/beautiful you are.

      So humans didnt even consciously decide this, keep trying to justify being a ugly troll though LOL

  8. I am of mixed South Asian (Indian) and English origin. Some people perceive me to look Indian while others think I look Southern European. A while ago I worked for a Japanese company. A Japanese colleague told me how the Japanese feel intimidated by white people partly due to the fact that they think they look better. She perceived me to look Indian and told me they would feel more comfortable around me as I looked similar to them. Not long afterwards I was at a festival and we got chatting to a couple of Japanese tourists. One of them started saying how ugly all Japanese women were and how she wished she looked like me because I was apparently so beautiful. She told me my my features and build were so much more attractive because I was European.

    This leads me to think it is the perception that some one is ‘white’ which leads them to be deemed more attractive rather than actual features. After all nothing about the way I looked had changed between the two incidents, yet the woman who saw me as Asian implied that I really wasn’t very attractive, while the one who saw me as white, was practically stamping her foot with envy at my alleged beauty.

    This surely shows, that at least to some degree, the idea that the white aesthetic is the ideal, is a product of global white supremacy and racism, and not innate as this author claims.

    1. @Saturn — Oh so it’s all white peoples’ fault, is it? “White racism” “white global supremacy” blah blah.
      What rubbish.
      I am sick and tired of white people being blamed for everything.
      Get it straight: we are NOT responsible for the behavior of other people–THEY are.
      It’s about time non-whites stopped blaming people for all the things they do, and take responsibility for their own actions instead of childishly blaming white people all the time.

      1. Rubbish?? Lol. Its just a funny word…. no one is blaming whites… and yeah I agree, its stupid everyone blames white ppl for their own idiocracy. Its that everyone loves what they cant have, so just dont get mad, be happy every race wants to look like u.

    2. I am very pleased for you that your exceptional beauty has caused such a stir. Most probably the Japanese you spoke with were being polite and self-deprecating as is their habit. They don’t think white people are superior or Japanese women are ugly and it’s ridiculous to suggest they are as gullible as you suggest.

      The Japanese are a great example of how pride in cultural traditions and race creates a cohesive and law-abiding society.

      1. I gave an example of two Japanese people that I spoke to and was comparing the difference in how they appeared to perceive me based on whether they saw me as white or non-white. I do not by any means think I am a raving beauty. However the Japanese person who seemed to think I was of purely European origin was adamant that I was far more attractive than Japanese women. She wasn’t just being polite, she reiterated her point at length. I also described another Japanese woman who perceived me as non-white. She again told me that whites were better looking than the Japanese, and told me I looked similar to the Japanese (despite being of partial South Asian origin, and not East Asian). The implication was obviously that she didn’t see me as as attractive as the average white person. I know this is obviously only a sample of two people, however I still think it is of interest in a discussion of why non-whites apparently want to look like white people. It means it is possible that a person of somewhat ambiguous appearance can be perceived to be more attractive when they are perceived to be white than when they aren’t. if this is the case, then it can’t be simply that white people are better looking. It’s not ridiculous to suggest the Japanese think this way, the whole globe is influenced by white dominance. They were saying what they thought, and anyway the one who saw me as non-white was hardly being polite, if anything she was putting me down, as she also told me that the Japanese look down on South Asians.

    3. This is one of the stupidest and most ignorant things I’ve read in some time. I’m so tired of people trying to blame whites for everything. Take/responsibility for your own shit. You can only fart I’m an/elevator so long and blame others until you’re in there alone with no one to blame

  9. Actually, though many people will hate to hear this, the real reason people want lighter skin is because lighter skin is more aesthetically pleasing.

    That’s not to say ‘white’ people skin is better looking than ‘black’ people skin, but that a lighter, fairer tone of whatever skin color you have is simply more pleasing to the eyes.
    Don’t mistake ‘light’ with ‘white’ A ‘black’ person can have lighter, fairer skin than a ‘white’ person. Asians, whites and blacks all have a different shade of skin, but all look very nice with a lighter skin tone.

    All that being said, it’s true there is a strong inferiority complex many non-whites feel towards whites. Much like most, if not all countries have an inferiority complex to an extent in regards to America.
    It’s no small wonder with their current position in the world. The less privileged will always have an inferiority complex of the more privileged.

    1. The fact of the matter is that people with darker skin are taught to hate themselves because darker skin people are the majority while lighter skinned people are the minority and darker skinned people can live better under the sun than lighter skinned people without suffering from much of the effects of skin cancer.

      1. David, I’m sorry you hate yourself. I’d suggest getting a job and taking responsibility for your own life as a good way to increase self esteem.

      2. ……and that’s why we invented sunblock. Funny how there are solutions to problems which don’t involve killing, stealing or shifting blame.

    1. Very true, ask any black lady where they are from, they will say america, but im half native american! Which is bs because they look like the average black person. Lol. They all just hate themselves terribly….

  10. @ Bob fairlane,why are white people in black and native american countries ? that is the real question. go back to your cock-ass mountains please.

    1. What is a “native american” country, anti-white? Are you referring to the Siberian Asians that WALKED over the Bering Strait land bridge around 10,000 years ago? Immigrating automatically precludes one from the title of native.

      As for “black” countries, no one in their right mind would want to live in a country run by a “people” that can’t master bucket sanitation. If there are whites in Sub-Saharan Africa, it’s certainly not to be around blacks. It’s about resources, unfortunately, and the Chinese are the newest Sub-Saharan visitors. The Chinese are a lot less likely to put up with your monkey shines than ebil ol YT. Should be fun to watch.

  11. In monogamy-practicing European societies girls were given a *choice* in who they wanted to marry. And what do you know? Girls, when given a choice, prefer to marry attractive men rather than ugly men. ‘Attractive’ of course simply being an outward sign of good genes. So in European societies beauty was *selected* for.

    In non-European polygamous cultures with arranged marriages women had no choice. The most powerful men, even if they were ugly, got all the attractive females. Attractive girls had no choice who they married. So in those cultures beauty was not selected for.

    European women really are more beautiful.

    And if you want to see what females end up evolving into when very *old* powerful men get all the girls, check out Australian aboriginal females. My god they’re ugly

  12. Honestly this is becoming too big of a deal. I am “black” and Filipino. I hear stuff like this everyday at school. And around there, it’s not the adults talking about this, it’s the teens (notice how I didn’t say children, because its not the children.) I hear “black” girls complaining about their hair and getting weaves and perms. To be honest it looks terrible. The “white” girls don’t complain about their hair at all. Now, the Mexican girls dye and bleach their hair, making it become dead. The Asian girls don’t do anything to their hair, they’re pretty confident. But, almost everyone complains about their hair, get over it. There’s no science to it.

  13. Why not? Being white is the s$&&t! Go to all the nice areas of the world and white people are there, walking freely and happily. Being dark skinned sucks! No minority who wants more out of life is going to think about marrying a black person. Yes, there are a lot of rich blacks, but no one automatically envisions themselves living the good life with a black spouse. Face it being dark is a curse. I’m dark and trust me, it really sucks.

    1. No.u should not say that. Who said you had to have light,fair, or pale skin.many people think it looks sick,dead, and alien looking to have white skin. Im not racist

  14. I’m gonna tell you something: even if you think it’s not true, I think we are obviously being influenced. By SO MANY things.

    Here are some proofs from my own experience:
    First, I’m sorry if what I’m going to say may hurt some people. It was not meant to be.
    I am a girl, when I was young, I was always having crushes on white guys, only. And I even used to think that asian men were rather ugly, like I didn’t really like their face type, eyes ect… But suddenly, I began to be interested in asian culture… and everything changed! The more I was into asian stuff, the more I was interested & attracted to asian men, to the point that even an “average-looking asian” was totally handsome to my eyes! It sounds incredible? But it’s the truth!!

    The same thing happened to me with black guys. I swear I never been more attracted to black men than the time I was IN FOND OF Michael Jackson !!

    Well, I am a little more mature now. And I realised that all “race” has his own beauty, even if some are more praised by our society.
    I feel like if we tried to see all of this with our own eyes, our own vision, not biased we will end up realizing that all races are… just different. There’s no “better” or “inferior”, just differences and all are beautiful in their own way.

    So, maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m just a stupid sheep who follows everything (shame on me)… Or maybe the truth is that we are being influenced. I don’t want to believe I am the only one.

    PS: Excuse me for the potential mistakes, I’m not a native english speaker.

    Peace.

  15. It has nothing to do with white supremacy
    How would that be the case when the majority of the country are middle eastern/Arabic people
    And asian so?
    It’s just the fact that Caucasian people are better looking we have better features and people wish to look like us

  16. Fortunately, more black women are embracing their natural hair now. Now I’m going to set things straight; black women have worn weaves and used relaxers for years ONLY because white society had brainwashed them to believe that their natural hair was ugly. Even black dolls were made with straight hair and white features, so buying little black girls black dolls did not help. Jobs did not want to hire black women with natural hair, so black women relaxed their hair or wore wigs. Wigs, weaves, and relaxers were used as a way to survive. I am proud of every black woman who wears her natural hair as a crown, because it takes strength to be different. But it is catching on and I am proud of my natural hair. It is beautiful.

    1. your a joke, you know that right?

      ALWAYS!!! SOMEONE ELSE TO BLAME

      keep taking no responsibly for yourself and see where that gets you in life

  17. It’s not true that everyone wants what they don’t have, as 99 per cent of white poeple wpuld never want to be other than whites

  18. Why do black people want to be white? The first known “doll test” that was conducted was also considered evidence that young black girls (and boys) were taught/given the impression that “white was right” and “black was ugly” in the home by black parents. Many blacks refuse to admit (or own up to) this because they will be held accountable for playing a role in the reason why black girls (and boys) wanna be white. Since they had blamed whites/racism for so long, their part would be revealed.

    I have witnessed black parents actually call black children (theirs and others) names like ni**er, ni**a, bi**h, h*e, and other derogatory and offensive names. Why are school age children called such names? This is a form of self-hate/hatred. Black females feel as though speaking this way because:

    1.) Blacks spoke to her in that manner. Family members, neighbors, etc.

    2.) Since black females repeatedly heard this, she views this language as normal. Females don’t recognize that speaking in this manner is just as damaging, if not more, to children.

    3.) These black females hate themselves for being black and she hates her children for having to be black. In fact, she wishes, prays, and dreams for white/light skin children and when it doesn’t she’s disappointed.

    “Six decades later after desegregation, the results were identical” That’s because six decades later these types of black females continue to teach/give the impression that “white is right” and “black is ugly” in the home and around their neighborhoods. Black males also speak this way to young black males so they are just as guilty. Black males and females now call young black boys ni**a all day, everyday. Whites/Racism/Slavery are used as an excuse to what they deem as normal.

    I should point out that ALL black people speak this way to black children or each other.

    1. I am tired of black people calling each other the N word it makes me sick. Im a black girl and i don’t want to be white. I use to want to be asian though cause they look pretty. I just hate the way most black people ACT,like thuggish, loud,ghetto, racist, etc.

  19. Well…I think black people should be natural! They are really unique and that’s a good thing! God made black people like that and they should love it! Like really! They should be grateful that when they get sunburnt they only get darker! Not like us whites we usually turn pink! They are beautiful! So beautiful and they are really special they are the only ones with that type of awesome hair that doesn’t blow when the wind comes! Black people feel prettier when they are like whites. I understand why they have braids becoz the hair is hard to manage but they shouldn’t really relax their hair or put weaves! They are perfect!

  20. In South Africa the story is quite different in my opinion. I think the majority of the blacks do not want to be white,they just put fake hair and relax it but some do their afro’s.In south africa we put that fake hair just to look nice or not to comb our hair for awhile! Black natural hair is hard to maintain! And when we braid it in winter we are actually protecting it from the harsh weather. I honestly also do not get the ones who put weaves! Like really why?

  21. To be really honest black people look wayyy prettier with their afro’s it makes them unique. They should love what God gave them its true! I think black people where experimenting when they first saw white peoples hair and wanted to feel how it is to have their hair.unfortunatly or fortunatley the things blacks do to make their hair like white peoples are temporary! In the bible it even says in 1 Peter 3:3-5 “Your beauty should not come from the outward adornment,such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearinf of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather is should be that of inner self,the unfading of a gentle and quiet spirit,which is of great worth in God’s sight.For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to adorn themselves.”

  22. Being an African girl living in a rural African community, we here revel in our gorgeous African hair. That being said however, most working ladies cannot keep up with constant hair manipulation- which causes breakage hence the weaves/relaxers. It doesn’t make them any whiter, it just helps them easily manage and protect their hair. Colourism is a big issue in Africa. I grew up very dark skinned, loving my tone but even when I was three I knew lighter skinned babies were considered prettier, lighter skinned girls were considered beautiful while those of us on the darker side were considered ugly. I loved my skin then, I still do, but I can acknowledge that even in my adult word, ‘beautiful’ is not the first compliment I get when I meet new people, yet it is the most repeated compliment that the lighter skinned African girls and women receive. Be they African, Indian and Asian, self love and self acceptance is something that has to come from within. I am glad that I have lived being sheltered by my environment, and it is not difficult to imagine why a girl who grows up surrounded by silky hair and ‘acceptable’ skin colour wouldn’t want just that for herself too.

    1. Hello Angela, I’m also an African and I love/admire dark chocolate women. They are beautiful and deserved to be admired. Nothing to be ashamed of. If anyone calls a dark skinned woman ugly it is because that person is uneducated and living in a world of inferiority complex. You are a queen no matter what.

  23. I am a south african coloured. I have fair skin and curly hair. I see a lot of my black friends with staright weaves and relax their hair. My one friend has an afro. She looks so beautiful in it. I just adore black people with their natural hair. It is a rare thing but I just love it. I wish I could do a afro but my hair falls down every time. I think we all need to be happy with who we are. I don’t believe every black person wants to be white, there are some that maybe admires the straight hair or fair skin. But then a lot of white people tans just to be darker

  24. I think the biggest bullcrap is when blacks especially the women try to sound super white to appease to white people. They think they are being professional and only want to make friends with whites and stay far away from other blacks. Believe me when I say that blacks hate themselves more than any other skin colour, it’s so disgraceful and disgusting. What is with the inferiority complex and being proud of who you are. Most blacks living in America today (the ones that think they are educated) would much rather go to Europe than have anything to do with Africa. I mean what the heck?

    They even dye their hair like white woman’s hair (blonde) then start talking like white women. Ugggh, it’s a complete turn off. For me, that’s why I must marry a genuine African woman, and not one of these wannabes who thinks that being black is a plague.

    I’ve also noticed a recent trend with the self-haters. The black woman/man would often talk low/bad of the opposite sex and then speak of white men/women as if they are some kind of Gods, and that they treat them better. A lot of brainwashed people fill this Earth. They place every black person in one category.

    1. Whoa. This is a really ignorant comment. You said that you hate it when they try to speak white/professionally? There is no such thing as trying to speak like a white person, it’s called speaking properly. This is implying that all black people don’t speak properly. Calm yourself person

      1. That is bull crap. We in Africa have our own accents. When black Africans start trying to imitate how Americans speak, then that is pure inferiority complex. I am not American, I’m actually Nigerian and we have a plethora of accents. I have what is called a Nigerian Fulani accent. Yet there are people in Nigeria who want to behave white-washed.

  25. Well for me i thinks white has dominated the entire word ether through music fashion just hate when i seen a black person wanting to be white crazy

  26. I went into a toy r us store yesterday and I chose the white doll for my niece cause the black doll was actually ugly. Nothing to do with psychology or self hate the doll was ugly. So I think this has something to do with the children prefering the white doll. If the manufacturers made the black dolls cute more children would chose them. But instead they make them ugly to create the illusion that the black race is ugly. Which is a lie because you find ugly and beautiful people in every race.
