    My observation is darker skin guys get frowned upon like they are less then a man if they get emotional, vs light skin guy it's to be expected because light skin guys are looked upon as softies.

    Oh right, so I don't count as having light skin tendencies?
    Hahahah :lol:

    No, sorry mate. You're out of the equation since light skin/dark skin only really applies to black people because mixed people were still considered black in America since marriages between white people and black people wasn't allowed.

    I think lil wayne sounds like a female though... And isn't he dark skinned? AlsoI thought caramel was darker than drake. It's more like the complexion of like Ludacris. Drake is tan not caramel. Neither is prince. Caramel I'd say is not light if we're talking about black people. It's nicki minaj or halle berry's color. Ludacris would be on the lighter end of that. Jayz also is a caramel complexion. It's basically the light brown catergory of black people.

    Alicia Keys, Drake, Klay Thompson, Jhene Aiko, Paula Patton and Zoe Kravitz are light skinned. Not caramel.
    Oh right, thank you for the explanation. But do you believe that light skin are usually more emotional than dark skin?

    That is true, wherever there are mixed populations you get lighter skin toned people and darker toned people.
    But the light skin/dark skin thing he's talking about with regards to like Drake and other famous people is something specific to the black community in my opinion.

    Do you think this is true?

    I've heard that generally speaking if your skin tone is caramel then you are more inclined to be emotional and in touch with your sensitive side than those of of a darker skin tone. Who are generally more thick skinned.

    Apparently we like to pout our lips and squint our eyes in front of cameras, or if a girl lies to us or breaks a promise she made we grab our balsam Kleenex that we keep in our pocket. And we always have a hissy fit if we don't get the attention we feel we deserve due to our light skin tendencies.

    Look at Drake or Prince for example they normally sound so fragile and gentle in their music, like they are caressing a rose in the rain and their main demographic is usually females.

    So yes I do think us caramel brothers are more in touch with our feelings.
    Wow this is scarily accurate Ya dunno.

    Moist caramel guy checking in....

    Haha although I don't crave attention or throw hissy fits.

    I can understand that since Guyana has a mixed population.

    But with OP's case he can't really group himself with light skinned black people comparing to dark skin black people. He can compare himself with dark skinned Arabs, so I guess if that's what he means then his question is fine.

    That sounds so harsh, imagine having to suppress your tears and your pain because of the colour of your skin.

    no they're individuals. I do think sometimes light skin black people act like they got something to prove. But not all

    Yeah I should have compared myself to dark skinned Arabs instead, this whole time I thought I was part of the light skin team.
