This has always been a problem for me. Its happened since high school, and im therefore cautious of black men.
Now I'm starting to understand why this whole thing has been so hard to get my brain around. I won't deny your experiences, but I can say with certainty that I've never said (or even conciously thought) that a woman was too black. But, that's just me, and I'm just one guy.
I can relate on some level though. I've been told by a small handfull of Black women that I was not Black enough (or too light skinned). It only happened a few times and I never really gave it much thought. I always figured there was another one around the corner, and the last thing I want to do is waste time on a woman who's not interested (regardless of what her reasons are). But I can easily see how a lifetime of experiences like that could have turned me off of Black women entirely.
Keep your options open Qty, and keep the faith.
