The Darker The Berry The Sweeter The Juice: Top Notch Mocha Colored Honeys

- By Bossip Staff

Gabrielle Union Kelly Rowland Venus Williams

When it comes to the standard of beauty in the African American community, Hollywood has one depiction- and it’s usually light. But Black women come in a variety shades and as the old adage goes, the darker the berry the sweeter the juice.

Hip-Hop Wired decided to count down some of the hottest mahogany colored honeys to show that caramel isn’t the only color in the crayon box. We don’t care what Yung Berg says, these chocolate honeys will definitely give you a tooth ache.

Check out the list here

      Hi Hannibal you must be black ,right ? But yet you defame our sisters.Read in the bible : Songs of solomon capter one fifth verse. When solomon’s daughter said ” I’am black but i’am comely “Black in the dictionary means “Beautiful”.Which are you ? A black Devil or a pale one.Hotep.Don’t mean to offend you just to open your mind like a xmas gift !!!!!!!!

    • Hannibal

      THERE ARE VERY FEW “BEAUTIFUL” DARK SKINNED WOMEN IN THIS WORLD. THAT’S EXACTLY WHY MOST DARK SKINNED WOMEN ARE SINGLE. I DON’T MEAN TO OFFEND YOU, BUT LIGHT IS RIGHT!

      Why do you even pay him any attention. He only does it to stir up some controversy and you people fall for it everytime. You already know he’s special. Why even waste your time?

      My best friend has a nice black wife, but says he wants a white or asian wife because he says they know how to cater to a man. Nothing against other races of women, but I just hope you all that think white is right get stuck with a WW that seems sweet and cute @ first, but gains 200 lbs and ends up being the bi@ch from hades.

    • Somali Ninga

      AGREE!!

  • chocolatedeluxe1

    Gabby looks like she has a GUT FULL OF HUMAN!!! All three women are beautiful.

  • Real Issh

    Foolish ,, Nia Long isn’t dark skinned . As ah hopefully black person ,, U should know that .

  • chaka1

    It’s all about smooth luscious healthy skin. White people are completely envious of it…

  • MissLaydee

    Beautiful Black Women Stand Up!! For all you dumbazzes that wants to continue to perpetuate the stereotype needs to off yourself….its disgusting how our own culture degrades one another just because the shade of our skin is different…every time we try to make strides forward you dipshitz bring us back…Grow Up!

  • nursedred

    Where is tasha smith and Jill Marie jones. They are gorgeous

    • ImaPC

      jill marie jones is there, looking really pretty in a bikini. But what i thought was strange was 90% of the women aren’t even ‘dark skinned’. I guess in Hollywood they rarely go beyond the caramel complexion, cuz thats what most of the women are–i.e. Sanaa Lathan & Megan Goode are dark skinned sistas? Compared to who, Gwyneth Paltrow?

      That and the wigs, lack of traditional african features like thick lips and wider noses let u know how whitewashed a Black woman has to be in H’wood.

  • Educated Goon

    Yumm… Gabrielle…

  • MissLaydee

    Thats the dumbest shizz i ever heard @ Hannibal i bet your darker than midnight and you wanna talk. Narrow-mindedness is an epidemic

  • Educated Goon

    There aren’t too many fine darkskin women in hollywood… The only time you see fine darskin women is in real life… like randomly when you at Publix.

    • tessa

      I agree and I should have been on that list!

    • Educated Goon

      naw yo ugly azz dont need to be on no list!

    • neosoleluva

      Unfortunately, I have to agree because they are slim pickings in the industry. So you see people like Karina from Dirty Money, Oprah, Whoopi, etc. When in real life, there are a million Gabbys.

  • THEQUEENBB

    At first I thought these women aren’t really dark skinned, but you know what I dont care they are beautiful anyway. It’s showing that there are so many shades that are more beautiful than light. I love my chocolate skin and there isn’t a day that goes by that someone doesnt stop me and say you are so gorgeous! Therefore I’m so not worried about what anybody has to say when it comes to skin complextion. I know who I am. Check N Mate.

    • Natalie

      Wat u sed!!:)The sistas rock point blank period!!!

  • nymphis
