Don't tell me the light skin negra never left. That awful House Of Payne series is Allen Payne's first steady gig since the 90s. Diddy is raising Al B. Sure's kid and Shemar Moore is hands down the C.O.A.T (corniest of all time) all across the ethnicity board.
Thankfully, I never had to worry about complexion coming up. By the time I started worrying about the girlies, Wesley Snipes (Free Him!)and Michael Jordan were in their prime. We haven't looked back since. If a dark skin vs. light skin war ever popped off, you yellow negras wouldn't stand a chance. We'd just baton the hell out of you guys. It doesn't matter how you wanna play it.
Best Actor: Sure, Will Smith is the Box Office G.O.A.T, but he's 0 for 2 with Oscar. With the exception of Morgan Freeman, who would fall into the light skin team in a Complexion Draft, every Academy Award Winner is on our team. Denzel Washington (twice), Sydney Poitier (Dos), Forest Withaker and Jamie Foxx. Plus we got Darth Vader.
Best Rapper: Kanye West is the best rapper alive and Lil' Wayne is the hottest rapper alive. You dudes may wanna have a huttle over there. Jay-Z is washed up, Nelly can't buy a hit, T.I. is going to jail and Ludacris is messing up Barak's campaign.
Basketball: Kobe is the best player in the world and Michael Jordan is the G.O.A.T.
Sex Symbols: Morris Chestnut and Idris Elba are still favorites with the ladies.
Funny Men: Chris Tucker, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Eddie Murphy, Jamie Foxx, etc, etc. You dudes never picked up after Red Fox and Richard Pryor. The Wayans brother don't count (they're caramel, but ya'll can have them).
I could list a bunch of other things, but you dudes are already trailing by too much, so there' no point in doing so. By the way, we'll let you guys have Michael Jackson. That individual clearly won't make any good contribution to our party.
Come on, homie. We major! But that's until recently. We just lost Bernie Mac and Isaac Hayes (R.I.P) this weekend. Wesley Snipes is about to go to jail for tax evasion and his punk ass is still putting out straight-to-DVD flicks like The Art Of War 2. Michael Vik was not a good look. And last but not least, Rick Ross allegedly lied about being a correctional officer. We're hurting, man. On the flip side, that kid Chris Brown is leading the light skin negra revolution at the ground level. As previously mentioned, Will Smith, who is not even 40 yet, is doing his damn thing.
But there's one dude in particular who is really killing us: Barak Obama. Should he be elected president, we're in trouble. Next thing you know, you hang out with a light skin friend and never get any looks. Then again, I'll pull out a technicality on you bums and petition for light skin negras to only be responsible for half of Obama. Still, the president of the U.S.> anybody else, so half could still do the trick. Damn! Is the light skin negra really making a comeback?
