Why is it that in most afro-american movies the main female characters are medium to light blacks?

To mention some: Gabrielle Union, Nia Long, Thandie Newton, Paula Patton.


Well she's on the darker side but there is much darker out there. Plus she has somewhat "white features".

    You think gabrielle union is medium to light skin?? LOL. Someone needs to get their eyes checked. Also, who cares what their skin tone is? In a world with so many problems and issues that should be the least of your worries. It's irrelevant.
