    Skin cancer, don't do it.

    In Europe, is there a rift between light skinned and dark skinned? In america, mainly in the south there sort of is. This movie scene(spike lee ftw) from the 80s shows what I mean. There's a saying over here; light, bright, almost white... I wonder if it crossed the pond...

    I am interested to hear how mixed people view themselves in europe, culturaly, racialy, whatever. I'm tri-racial myself.

    I'm a pasty white, freckled Norwegian, and I've never cared about tanning. I think pale skin is pretty. I live in Northern Europe, not some very hot place. We are who we are.

    No, and beauty doesn't come in colours you idiot .
    I can't even be bothered to reply further to such an unintelligent person such as yourself.

    Sorry, I don't ever call people names but, gosh you really deserve it.
    Cherrycherryboomboom should NEVER be called unintelligent. She's making a very valid point.

    Jesus christ is that her in the pic. I honestly thought she was light black/mixed race.
    Tell her from me that she is FRIGGIN GORGEOUS, and if shes ever in London, give me a call

    I am completely serious.

    That doesn't have anything to do with what I was saying. It's just as nice. Like I said, we are who we are. The reason I said I think pale skin is pretty, because I'm sick of people talking bad about it. I'm sick of hearing girls my age despair over how pale they are, and how disgusting they think their own pale skin is. It's time for this obession with being tan to stop. I say embrace your paleness!

    "Ooh, are you sick?"
    " I'm so pale, I look dead!"
    "I really need some colour. I can't look like this!"

    etc. Last summer I was reading a fashion magazine, and a woman actually complained when they used normal pale women as models. They looked " dead"
    and "creepy" according to her. :rolleyes:

      racist prick
      I'm not a raciest, in my eyes black people or people of anyoter race are equalls and sould be treted no diffrently based on their physical attributes. However, from an evolutionary prespective of beauty (which is like 95% of people standards) black women are are testostrone pumped, biged nosed uglies.

      This made me go "aww" out loud :console:. Is this how a lot of young mixed race people feel? Cos I never thought of it that way before.
      I don't know about other mixed raced kids, but when i was 8 i met my first ever mixed raced friend and i didn't feel like a weirdo.

      Too late for that mate. I poured my heart out to you and you tossed me aside like a cheap suit. We could have had something special :bawling:although my offer is still open
