Because I am 41.8, I was caught up in the dark girls ain't fly syndrome before the
entourage of funky black dolls in Toys R Us for little black girls. I wasn't privy to
the blessing of seeing real black girls all over the TV. Now, I don't want to go too
far into that cause it's another trip, but my younger sisters need to be more aware
of the darker girls' struggle in America before the WB. Please, respect that my
reality is what fuels my funkiness and that your reality though different, makes us

... and middle class is the “hidden transcript[s]” . . . of femaleness, the
womanhood invariably and historically celebrated in academe. In striking
contrast, Black womanhood is often presented as the antithesis of White women's
lives, the slur or the “nothingness” . . . that men and other women use to
perpetuate and control the image of the “good girl” and by extension the good
woman. (p. 82) Specifically, Black women compared to their White female
counterparts are considered the “dark ...

[Girls] were out in the morning by nine o'clock you know, eight-thirty, nine o'clock.
It's like most of the girls that I would have been hanging out with, we would all be
there . . . and the games were all predicated on rhythm. [You] jump to patterns.
You were cool and you had rhythm. (Personal interview, January 2, 1995) Liese's
words call attention to the way language about rhythm keys into the social
consciousness surrounding youth and black popular music culture. Being cool—

“I have a policy of hiring only real light girls with good hair. I do this because they
make a good appearance. The people of the sporting world who trade here will
favor a light girl. A dark girl has no drawing power. The men who play in
orchestras come here, and if I was to hire a dark girl she would be forced to stand
around and do nothing while the other girls would be busy. I know this. I've even
tried hiring brownskinned girls, and they didn't make enough money to pay their

I think that providing such examples of deep-chocolate-toned women would have
been inspirational and instructional in a film that seeks to heal, as Dark Girls does
. Sharing these positive “dark girl” experiences of growing up in affirming homes
and communities would teach us how to raise proud and confident brown-
skinned women, rather than uniformly feeling sorry for them. Further, such
testimonies would help to accelerate our collective healing process by
demonstrating that ...

However, this issue tends to be given cursory treatment, and has not been
analysed systematically. In this chapter, I shall explore Bangladeshi society's
preoccupation with women's complexion and the implications of this for 'dark'
adolescent women. I shall draw linkages between poverty, complexion and '
purity', and discuss the predicament of dark' girls, in particular poor 'dark' girls,
through two case studies. I argue that an obsession with complexion perpetuates
gender hierarchy ...

It's better than those really dark girls." and you say, "Oh yeah. Well, I'm mixed. My
grandfather's mom's dad was half white" or something of that nature. I'm not
saying don't be proud of your heritage, but we all know that most of us are mixed
with a little bit of something. I have heard women proclaiming to be something
they're not, just to fit in or be accepted a little more. It's okay to be black and
beautiful. You don't have to explain your family tree to someone. This mindset is

Although the Black is Beautiful movement came to an end, Europeanness and
whiteness was still considered as more beautiful than Africanness and blackness
amongst melaninated peoples.25 Recently there has been a surge of black
people, particularly in the United States, who have taken it upon themselves to
celebrate the beauties of black women and their natural features. In the recently
published book, Dark Girls, Chiijmree Williams said: Any negative views about
me as a ...
