This book of poetry looks at relationships in the African American community and how some black males choose women who are light-skinned or white over their dark-skinned female counterparts.

This book of poetry is a tongue in cheek look at dating relationships in the African American community. These poems describe how some black males are choosing to date or marry only women who are light-skinned or white over their dark-skinned female counterparts. The book also reflects the pain of how our society promotes this color struck image on TV, in movies, and in the corporate arena. Nevertheless, the spirit of affirmation with these dark-skinned African American women show that they are proud of the skin they are in and how their beauty comes in all shapes, shades, and sizes.

This book of poetry gives a view that had been on my mind for some time. The dating situation in the Black community does need to be looked at a little closer and I think this book has done that. The author covered some areas that most of us don't want to discuss. Thanks for giving this issue a voice.

I had to stop here and say something: Page 18 came back to haunt me for a minute. You see, I could identify, because I had two not one to enter my life and stay for a while, each staying longer than the other. Brotha #1 always had a sad story and he would always praise me for helping him and telling me what a good woman I was. I'm remembering the child support payments I paid for him, the vacation we took that was charge to my American Express Card, he was always traveling in my new car or my truck. This brotha would wine and dine us on my money. Put me up on display for other brothas to see and stand back and smile. Brotha #2 was younger, arrogant with a capital A, not only was he lazy, cheap, thoughtless, crazy, selfish and a bully he was a jail bird. Lots of money spent on this brotha and at the end I had lost everything I had. My question is I am a Beautiful Black Woman and these Brothas were high yellow Black Men or Light Skin/Black Men. What's going here?
