– Marcus Garvey
When Ozzie Virgil became the first Dominican player in the majors, his nationality was barely noticed. What the press and fans talked about was his skin color. He was the first black player on the Detroit Tigers, and a great deal of attention was paid to him as someone who crossed the color line.
– Mark Kurlansky
I’m not one that believes that affirmative action should be based on one’s skin color or one’s gender, I think it should be done based on one’s need, because I think if you are from a poor white community, I think that poor white kid needs a scholarship just as badly as a poor black kid.
– J. C. Watts
I never really had to put much thought into my race, and neither did anybody else. I knew I was black. I knew there was a history that accompanied my skin color, and my parents taught me to be proud of it. End of story.
– Issa Rae
Love has no nationality for me. I have a preference for dark skin but that’s just superficial.
– Abhay Deol
Baby, black promoters oppressed me before white promoters ever got hold of me. Don’t talk skin to me.
– Mahalia Jackson
Being the only non-Black was a unique experience. After a few weeks, you’re not aware of skin color differences. You see the color; you’re not blind, but it doesn’t matter. You see the human being first.
– Ricardo Montalban
There are no black conservatives. Oh, there are neoconservatives with black skin, but they lack any claim to blackness other than the biological. They have forgotten their roots.
– Stephen Carter
Blackface remains exoticist and offensive as a practice, not just because of its long tradition of being used to mock black selfhood, sexuality, and speech but because of its assertion that black people are merely white people sullied by dark skin.
– Kevin Young
No discrimination in dark skin quotes
I don’t judge people by their sexual orientation or the color of their skin, so I find it really hard to identify someone by saying that they’re a gay person or a black person or a Jewish person.
– Diana Ross
Some white people are privileged, some aren’t. Some black people are, some aren’t. It’s strikes me as, by definition, a racist attack in that it’s making a generalization – a negative one – based on skin color.
– Tucker Carlson
I don’t think because I hang out with enough black people, I’m gonna turn black. What kind of rationalization is that? I’m just friends with people that I like. I don’t care what skin color you are.
– Khloe Kardashian
I wanted to inspire people not to work under a bamboo ceiling. Whatever you are – yellow, black, white, brown – you don’t have to allow your skin to define who you are or how you operate your business. There’s not one face to anything.
– Eddie Huang
That’s what he was saying, the civil rights movement – judge me for my character, not how black my skin is, not how yellow my skin is, how short I am, how tall or fat or thin; It’s by my character.
– Pam Grier
Dark skin women quotes
Black women, dark skin women are the original beautiful people to me.
My father has fair skin, and my mother is dark, and I’m kind of cafe au lait.
– Lela Rochon
I just feel Black women, we get slept on a lot and people don’t recognize our greatness in our curls and in chocolate skin.
– Ari Lennox
Back in England, a girl with thick black hair, dusky skin and big brown eyes will turn heads. It is vice versa in India.
– Amy Jackson
I am an African-American woman of dark skin tone, and there are very specific roles that are usually given to African-American women of a darker hue. Let’s start with ‘Once on This Island’: peasant girl. Let’s go to ‘The Color Purple’: young girl, beaten. Let’s go to ‘Ragtime’: Her baby’s taken.
When it comes to racial issues, I’m very passionate about young girls just loving who they are in their own skin. Because I remember going to an all-white school and being the only black girl in an all-white school, think – looking around me, thinking there’s no one else here that looks like me.
– Kelly Rowland
They used to call me Firefly when I was a little girl, and I always tried to figure out why I was being called a firefly. I was really black, black, black from the sun. After being in Jamaica for 13 years, my eyes were really beady and white, and my skin was really black. I must have really looked like a fly. My eyes looked like lights, like stars.
– Grace Jones
I have a thick skin, which comes from being a not-really-skinny, dark-skinned Indian woman. I haven’t fit in every place, and so I’m kind of used to resistance.
– Mindy Kaling
Negative Dark skin quotes
Basically, when I went to school in Sri Lanka from age five onward, the classes there were sometimes sorted into a hierarchy of your skin tone. So the fairer-skinned kids sat at the front row, and the darker-skinned kids sat at the back by the poor ones who played out in the street all day long.
The lighter the skin, the more acceptable you are. The darker the skin, the more marginalised you become. I want to demonstrate that you can produce beauty in the context of a figure that has that kind of velvety blackness. It can be done.
– Kerry James Marshall
I’ve been dealing with racism since I was a little kid! My dad’s super black, from Puerto Rico. Then my mom’s super white – she’s Puerto Rican too, but she grew up in Milwaukee. As a Latino in the U.S. I’ve seen how we are treated differently based on the color of our skin.
– Anuel AA
I have dark skin. My nickname is El Negro. They call me El Negro in Mexico because even in my country, the dark skin is evidence of Indian blood, a sign that one technically belongs to a third class. Even my grandmother had some kind of differentiation with me, because I was darker than my siblings.
– Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu
I don’t like to see people using their power over others, trying to hurt people who are weak or poor or people with darker skin or anyone who doesn’t have as much privilege. It makes me so angry. I want to fight for people. I want to be able to make some kind of difference in the world.
– Kali Uchis
When I was young, to have a big nose, big lips or dark skin was the worst. You were the wretched. That was something I not only felt, but I participated in.
– Nate Parker
Dark skin makes a difference
I always felt different and it was because I was Middle Eastern. Where most people were very fair, light-skinned, and had blue eyes, I was hairy with dark hair and dark skin.
– Huda Kattan
Dark skin complexion quotes
I love African American women, but I just don’t like my skin complexion.
– Kodak Black
I’ve heard that I’ve gotten a lighter complexion, as if I’ve bleached my skin. I think that is so stupid and ludicrous. For those who want to bleach their skin, that’s fine. I just didn’t bleach mine. I’m a black woman. I don’t want to be anything but a black woman.
– NeNe Leakes
Barack Obama dark skin quotes
Barack Obama would not be President if he were dark skin. You know what I mean? That’s just the truth. I might not be as successful as I am now if I was dark skin.
– J. Cole
My dear brother Barack Obama has a certain fear of free black men. As a young brother who grows up in a white context, brilliant African father, he’s always had to fear being a white man with black skin. All he has known culturally is white. He has a certain rootlessness, a deracination.
– Cornel West
