Dark Girls.

I watched a documentary on OWN recently that focused on a particular human prejudice; one I've been oblivious to; to think of it even now, is absurd.  The documentary focused on the notion that there's not just racial prejudice, but one against different shades of brown skin color.  The fact that light skinned ethnic girls are preferred over their darker counterparts has been perpetrated for a long time.  At first I thought, as a dark skinned woman, not only do I have to worry about the lack of responsible, good looking Black guys out there, but now I have to worry that I might have missed out on potential good ones because they preferred a lighter skinned girl over me?
