Why so much hate for LSLH women? I get this question asked of me frequently via emails. The question stems from my use of the acronym LSLH to describe light skinned women with long hair who are revered by black men and the media as the ideal standard for black woman.

And maybe as a subconscious consequence of that the media reverence for LSLH women, we now see 90% of black women wearing long, bone straight wigs and weave, and/or buying skin lightening cream in bulk.

Thank God for women like talk show Diva Tyra Banks (and even Solange Knowles) who sees the long term hopelessness in substituting our own natural beauty in favor of a media manipulated standard of black beauty.

I totally disagree with blogger AverageBro, who, in his post about this subject, cautions his white readers to "watch this one from the sidelines," as if white people aren't savvy enough to understand the complex issues surrounding self-hate and media manipulation of black culture.

This isn't about me or about black women who stand by while their men parade their LSLH chicks around them and their children. It's about a media and society at large that attempts to subjugate strong black women by means of substituting our blackness with acceptable light skin mixed women, who then turn around and whine that black women aren't accepting of them.

Here's an excerpt from AverageBro's post:

One interesting pattern I always see develop on black gossip blogs is when a black guy with some level of fame is seen out with a black woman. If the woman is lightskinned, with long hair (a term so common it even has an accepted acronym: LSLH), the guy will inevitably be pelted with all sorts of insults in the comments section about how he dislikes "real" black women, and probably wants a white girl anyway.[1] On the other hand, a black man seen with a brownskinned woman (a term that doesn't have an acronym of its own), he'll usually get commended for "keepin' it real" and "staying true".[2] For an example of this paradox, just Google the terms "NBA player's wife" and "Denzel Washington's wife".

    Only people with weak minds allow the media to dictate to them what beauty is. Just because they say that men with rock hard bodies are hot doesn't mean that I find that look hot... I don't. I like my man with some meat on him.

  • VAALLDAY

    I agree and disagree with that. Black women as a whole do have issues with each other as far as Light Skin verse Brown Skin, but that's because that is what society has taught us. It's up to us to pull ourselves out the box, and not go for what is "deemed" black beauty.

  • Dhoward1913

    I, like so many other dark skin women don't have a "problem" with my color, but I do know that the darker skinned women are not viewed as LSLH women are. People can close their eyes to the intraracism that exists in our community but trust me it is out there. Now, I could go back to the days of slavery and break it down from there, but I will simply say that media and western civilization has given an idea of beauty and it and continues to be a fair skinned woman with long hair. I have several experiences in my own life, but Sandra would have to give me a whole day to discuss this. The pitiful thing is that black men have bought into this and they prefer a more "exotic looking" woman than one that looks like them or their mothers. We see it everyday, sometimes in "our" own so-called media. We can go back to TV shows created for us.....look at how the darker skin women is always portrayed. Darker skinned women always have to have a little something extra for black men to even notice them, but the only requirement for the lighter skin women is lighter skin and long hair.......Okay getting of my soapbox now.

  • iscream

    @ Dbrown I think it works both ways and it depends on what shoes you are standing in. I'm sure LSLH women have their own stories to tell. Remember the wife in Jungle Fever when she broke it down.. Octoron, quadron, high yellow, honkey..

    Non Light tv women

    Aunt Viv (the real one)
    Claire Huxtable.
    Nelle Carter (& she was a big women)
    The mother on the Robert Towsand Show
    Bernie Mac's Wife
    Tishina Arnold (hates Chris)
    Brandy
    The woman who played Moesha Mother (can't think of her real name)
    Toni Childs
    The woman who played Ray's wife (Y can't I remember her name. And she loves yt men)

    The list goes on. I'm just saying. Depends on who eyes you are looking thru.

DOn't buy the cd deez discriminating niccas drop and don't support their businesses...simple as that. I don't have a problem with LSLH, but I do have a problem with anyone who doesn't uplift every shade of color in the black race...thats just MFO (my fukking opinion)!!!!

    dark skinned women are called, BLACK as tar, monkeys, DARKIE, ect....that doesn't make it any better if the LSLH women are being uplifted more than the BSBW are.

    i didnt ask to be LS. it is typical for LH which is why im rockin the short cut becuz long hair is borin to me anywayz!thats just media hypin shyt up. nobody made a fuss about supermodel iman, grace jones, naomi sims for being darker! and yes "school daze" is one of my favorite movies! and i do discriminate cuz i cant stand light skin men. i prefer amistad dark...my son still came out light n bright!

  • PAHairston

    Hello All. Have you ever noticed how Hollywood embraces the black man, the black man with black features? Can we name one major black male Hollywood star that is white-looking or close to light skinned-ed? Let's see, we have Denzel, NOT, Eddie, NOT, Danny Glover, NOT, Cosby, NOT, Poitier, NOT, Will Smith, close but still NOT light-skinned-ed, and definitely not Wesley. Why the double standards? I'm just saying.

    @PA Mr Baby wipes himself T Howard, Micheal Ealy and Shemar Moore to name a few and I don't think Will is light per say rather brown IMO.

    Maybe I should start a protest for the forgotten group. I'm probably the exact colour as a paper bag...therefore I call myself medium skinned. My mom is high yellow but she takes every moment to burn in the sun and be darker. My dad is super dark. So...where's my position in this whole debate since Im smack dab in the middle? My only problem is those commercials that use kids...why do they always have only mixed kids? I mean...even if the 2 parents are black, the kid in the Huggies commercial is mixed with this big curly hair. I just dont get it

    I don't like "Junk" and not because of skin color. Not even because of her tore up mouth frame. But because she is a loud mouth troublemaker. I hope she is kicked off this week. & Real & Chance seem to like women who aren't black (light or dark).

    Good example. All these men are brown skin. We don't see a white man exploiting black/light skin(don't matter what shade)a negro is still a negro. White men would not dare have a show and exploit black women the way that we let our black men do. It's not acceptable and it's up to us to quit wanting a job so badly that we are willing to tramp ourselves out.

  • miamore73

    I don't blame the media for this issue at all. I blame history. I blame the ignorance that we continue to pass down to our children since slavery. I was teased constantly about being light. They'd call me white girl (yes it was offensive) said I had lice in my hair would sing songs about the darker the berry the sweeter the juice and black is beautiful white is ugly if you don't believe me ask that hunky. The media wasn't teaching those kids those songs back in 1982. Give me a break. Once I got older girls would wanna give me the side eye just cause I was light and evidently I thought I was too good even though I was never rockin the latest gear and my hair was never fly. It was just because.

    STOP TEACHIN THIS SHIT. IF YOU HEAR YOUR SONS SAY "SHE'S CUTE FOR A DARKER SKINNED GIRL" CORRECT HIM!! Let him know that girl is beautiful regardless of his skinned tone. Teach your children about the beauty of just being black regardless of your skin tone. Teach them how beautiful it is that one race of people can come in so many different colors and teach them the beauty in that.

    Tameka got dogged out cause she wasn't attractive and she was manly. Have you checked out ole girls shoulders. It had nothing to do with her skin color. Tiny gets dogged out cause she is funny looking. Skin color has nothing to do with a persons appearance. If you funny looking you just plain damn funny looking.
