I am fortunate in that none of the black men I associate with have this viewpoint.
Short answer: Because representation is important.
Long answer: The women in my family aren’t all model thin and lightskinned. The girls I’ve dated aren’t, not is the girl I am dating. The women I’m attracted to, the women I see every day, they aren’t all model-thin and lightskinned. Why would I perpetuate and spread only one image of black womanhood, and the image that is already widely perpetuated by most media, when there is more than that? If I have an opportunity and a platform to spread positivity, why would I do anything else? That’s not how my mother, a beautiful, short, brownskinned, woman, raised me.
Also, your question didn’t refer to black males, but everything in this answer can be applied to black males as well, who I also try to reblog as much as I can.
