Ah the old put an insult before a compliment type of people

Honestly I'd be more offended than anything else that the first thing they brought up was the colour of my skin :curious:

Being pretty is a compliment.
There was no need for them to include the "dark" though, a person should be able to be attractive regardless of someone needing to refer to race.

Sounds like he doesn't know how ignorant he is. I suppose he thinks he's being complimentary. The "but" coming after "dark" suggests that he thinks being dark is a bad thing. He is mistaken.

Personally, if it was me I'd thank him and then try to get rid of him. I wouldn't want to be around someone like that.

I’d take that to offence straight away. The fact that he had to say but means that the thing that was said before was offensive. Just using your looks rather than seeing you for more than that.

Its both. Just call a girl pretty ffs, why bring race into it?

I've called black and white guys handsome but I've never said 'oh you're a handsome black boy' or 'you're good looking for a white guy', a handsome guy is a handsome guy ffs!
