    1)just because a person has a light complexion does not mean they are necessarily white.

    It dosent mean your white, but it does mean if you are black and have lighter skin you do have white ancestors. Weather you like it or not

    I swear this site is full of some dummies!! Here’s a few things you idiots should know. 1)just because a person has a light complexion does not mean they are necessarily white. 2)just because a person has a dark complexion does not mean they are not necessarily mixed. Have you looked at some of the different tribes of Africa!!! They come in all beautiful shades, eye color, and hair textures. Oh hush with the ignorance already. Always non black and ignorant black people that always have some crazy shit to say about things they know nothing about. Cut the dumb shit out already!
