It might sound like a foreign language to you but trust me, skin color is difficult to deal with, people make so many remarks about being light or being dark, people diss one shade, and prefer another. I think the problem is more difficult with girls than guys, but maybe i'm mistaken. Black men might have their own battles with shades. I'm going to avoid stating remarks I've heard, and my personal opinion about the matter to avoid offending anyone, or creating a heated argument.
