Yesterday electricity went off at night. I came out and sat in balcony. After a wam day, it gets cooler in the evening here. There is sea breeze. No one was at home. The sky was clear. It was dark and quiet. I took out my Ipod Touch and listened to
 
 
it was so peaceful.  I can never do that in daytime when its bright but hot and humid.
 
Dark in this regard is very beautiful.
 
On this filmi note. its time to turn of the lights and sleep. g night. lol

Well if it's just about personal preference it isn't a debate is it?

 

My preference. I don't think I actually have a preference for skin tones. I find Donald Driver and Aaron Rodgers both equally sexy and attractive in different ways. I find that both Halle Berry and Anne Hathaway are equally gorgeous.

 

Amidst desis - Bipasha, Nandita Das, Sushmita Sen, Parineeti Chopra - I find attractive. Mallika Sherawat, Kareena Kapoor, Aishwariya Ria - I find unattractive. John Abraham, Salman Khan, Dhanush - I find attractive. Ajan Devgan, Shahrukh Khan, Rajdeep Hooda - I find unattractive.

 

I don't think color does anything for me. But I am shallow in other appearances - I cannot stand hooked noses like SRK. I cannot stand hairy chests like Anil Kapoor, I don't find rotund South Indian heroes attractive at all.

Skin tone doesnt matter AT ALL..
And yes dark can be beautiful...
Personally I like tanned/olive skin tone.

Beauty is beauty: to me dark or fair is moot. I don't think the the skin colour really is the issue; it's actually skin quality that plays a key role for me. Clear, glowing and healthy skin will be stunning regardless of the colour.
If a person sees fair skin as a 'prize' and is determined not to see the beauty in dark skin because some South Asian people can have a problem with it...well...it's just sad.

I think the fairness of skin color is something that is embedded into our brains since we were born...in fact I would call this thinking genetic. Why? I think this could be the effect of British ruling over the South Asian continent for so many years which caused inferiority complex. Even in folk tales or religious symbolism, black/dark symbolizes negativity and evil whereas white/fairness symbolizes purity and positivity. So this kind of thinking is being carried on for ages.

This leads us to racism. Why were acts of racism practiced against the African Americans? Why were they turned to slaves? Why does racism still exist? Why do those who are white think they are better than darker people? How does it make them special? The only people who could answer these questions are the people who do think they are better because of their skin color. Will they tell the reasons? No, because the know it's wrong.

Let's come back to the south Asian continent. Why are more dark girls turned down than dark boys. This I think is a whole different issue. But why do North Indians or any light colored Indians type cast South Indians as dark? Sri Devi and Hema Malini are also south Indians. But I mainly think that it is inferiority complex in the S.A. Continent which cause people to think like this.

Are dark people beautiful? Yes they are! Many of the top models here in USA are African Americans. Halle Berry or Beyonce who was named as the most beautiful woman in the world.

You should not judge one by the darkness or fairness of their skin color, what matters is what kind of person they are. We are all made special in our own way. Today in America, those who had ancestors who were once racist towards dark color...go tanning...and it is considered beautiful!

great points all. yes this topic is less of a debate and more of getting to know personal view first.

now according to "NumNum theory of beautivity" which if I understood properly says that those who tend to be darker in skin tone are more likely to say dark is beautiful. Therefore posters here can be divided into fair versus dark
 
Fair
- Miss/Mr. Zephy
- Mr NumNum
- Miss Planet
 
Dark in skin tone
- Miss Laila
- Miss Aarya
- Miss Hades
- Miss Daisy
- Miss Moomin
- Miss Shweta
 
There are 9 members.
 
My request to each member is if they are okay then please state whether you are fair or dark in skin tone. We can then test in how many cases NumNum theory of beautivity holds true.
 
Note: Fair and dark here are relative to Indian sub-continent.
 
Note: Please take this as positively as being fair or dark is not an insult
