    Eurocentric beauty standards. 

    lighter skinned black women are considered closer to european beauty standards so they are favored in commercials and movies 

    ever notice why so many black women get a weave? because they are pressured to conform to having straighter hair because their natural hair isn't considered ideal in their job 

    the sad reality is that many black men seem to prefer these type of women which is why every famous black male celebrities always has either a light skinned black woman or a lighter skinned woman from another race 

    black men aren't pressured to conform to a beauty standard the same way black women are considering the fact that men in general aren't judged by their physical appearance the same way women are

      I think most people are socially conditioned to believe lighter skin and european features are more attractive
