2 hours wasted

that awkward feeling u get when u realize the woman ure speaking w/ finds lighter skin more attractive. #internalizedracialoppression

I met her 2 hours earlier at this party, and we established eye contact. She was the only black woman there. A gorgeous real dark-skinned black woman  in her 40s with a beautiful smile and a good sense of humour, and the right sized-curves in all the right places . And we talked for an hour before talking to other people, but we found ourselves talking to each other again, 20 minutes later, for about 40 more minutes when I suggested we exchange contact information.

 And I thought we clicked when she said what she said that I'm too upset to repeat here.

That's on her, that's her lack showing up attempting to paint you inadequate.

Black men of all shades are beautiful, yes I said beautiful, that is how I see them all and I am not afraid to express it either. I remember seeing this brother-dark as dark can be, and smooth, hmmmm, have mercy, he had on a crisp white, white shirt; I just stopped where I was going and took him in. You thinking am crazy right? Man, his beauty stopped me in my tracks, I kid you not! I was across the street, I couldn't breathe. I crossed over, walked up to him, said hello to get his attention, I stood close, looked him in the eye and said, "I just want to tell you that you are beautiful, I love your look, I love your color, thank you for brightening and blessing my day.” His mouth dropped open, he looked at me, his eyes lighting up and said, "thank you," I replied no, thank you for being! And I crossed the street and headed back to work.

You are beautiful to me, your dark skin is an asset not a deficit, the only thing that would make me think otherwise or turn away from you would be your character or lack thereof.
