22-year-old UK blogger Keith aka Mr Exposed has become quite the “controversial” figure on Twitter over the past couple of weeks thanks to his anti-dark skinned women tweets (Apparently all tweeted in jest).
Here are a few examples,
A Lighty Can Set Me Up Any day, l’ll Forgive Her. I Dare A Dark Ting To Try, I’ll Get Her Pitched
If I Was Captain Of The Titanic, We’d Let Lighties On The Life Boats 1st, Dark Skin Girls Get On After Men
Well as you can imagine Mr Exposed tweets didn’t go down too well in some quarters and in response to the backlash a dark-skinned Mr Exposed has posted the following blog post titled Lighten Up Ladies.
Via Pardon My Blog
I am a man that has never been the type to discriminate against women because of their skin colour, except for white women, solely because the last one I tried to sample, nearly died on me & we all know how cases like that end! A white girl dies, half naked, in the presence of a tough faced black man like myself & you think they won’t gift wrap an attempted rape & murder charge & hand deliver it to my front door? My muscles are for stunting, not prison. I am not involved at all mate, but as I was saying before I started discussing open cases, skin colour has never been an issue for me, but I recently decided to play ‘devils advocate’ and declare love for ONLY light skinned women and impose a zero tolerance policy on all dark skinned women just to see the reaction. Anyone that knows me will tell you that controversy is my middle name; I will push boundaries just to prove even the tiniest of points or to test out one of my many theories. Continue Reading….
Since posting this response Mr Exposed has been getting virtual pats on the back from his Twitter followers.
Interestingly enough many of those virtual pats on the back have also come from young dark-skinned women who shout he is “THE TRUTH” and totally agree with his views.
Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahha. Oh dear..oh dear… *shaking head*
And then you have London based Serbian comedian/actor The Vujanic also co-signing the post and tweeting
Is Vujanic just jumping on the bandwagon because today’s lost young black folk (his audience) are praising this article or does he actually understand and agree with the statements that have been made?
And what the HELL is “URBAN” TWITTER”??? Is there a black..oops sorry I mean “URBAN” only Twitter now that some how passed me by???
Willie Lynch is probably sitting in hell laughing his backside off at this mess.
Mad News readers your thoughts please……….

Yup I read this joke of a blog last night, whilst he did bring up some points his experiment wasn’t that he just said he preferred light-skinned women but he was bashing and out-right spewing vermin about dark-skinned women. He thought that the girls and boys who didn’t see the funny side to his ‘experiment’ were mad because he said he preferred light-skinned women, not the part where he was being straight-up ignorant. This sudden rise against black women have become a trend on twitter and slowly I’m starting to get turned off by it all and what angers me the most are the same dark-skinned girls who try to co-sign and laugh-off such tweets so that they don’t look like the ‘angry black woman’. Sorry but I was offended by those tweets and I failed to find his blog funny or ‘on-point’ either.
I think that the girls who have co-signed all this were actually offended and probably still are but like you say they don’t want to come across as being angry black women and lacking a sense of humour.
What is often said in jest …..
He offeres nothing new to the dark skin black male bashing of dark skin black women. Says it is a joke an experiment like throwing stones to hide your hands. These are the sort that probably use the n-word and are offended when others use it at them against them.
So what if there are angry black women. How about stop being a contributing factor to it all. Everywoman gets angry just some actually know how to vocalise it
Does he look nor read like the type of person anyone with even a modicum of sense would associate with?
22 years old? * puts on glasses and looks at twitter pic* Well its obvious he’s had a hard life from the distressed appearance he has.
Its sad to see that not only is he black and darkskinned but the girls agreeing with him, are, with long weaves and light shining on their faces so they look lighter. Its sad but to be honest these are not the type of black people i associate with online or in real life.
Leave these unintelligent, ill educated, going nowhere fast attention seeking tweeters, to return to the gutter, their natural habitat.
*looks at their twitters again*
I mean who would really want to know any of these lost creatures? Not I
The breakdown of the respect and relationship between black men and women are at the root cause of the problems of our community. People have their preferences yes, but to berate people that aren’t your type is a big probem for me and no-one does it more publicly than black people – our flaws as a people and our self -hatred is soo globally transparent it’s embarrasing and makes me sick…. In conclusion, any sensible woman would not want a guy who likes them just because they happen to be the right hue…so to assume that light skin women are flattered by often being preferred is just as ignorant as assuming that dark skins girls are mad at being passed over….
Never heard of this guy anyway so don’t think he’s gonna change my life in anyway….. If making comments like this makes him feel better as a black man (who in society is at the bottom of the ladder) then he’ll get a rude awakening when he finds out that whatever hue we are, we are in all in the same unfortunate boat and to succeed and elevate we need to work together!
For goodness sake his name is Keith LOL, i can’t.
Anyway what i am more appalled at is the internalised racist misogyny these girls/women are suffering from who are co signing him.
Please tell me none are over the age of 18.
The higher the monkey climb the more him expose – (old Jamaican proverb)
LOL at the experiment excuse. This was trolling, plain and simple. There was nothing controversial or ground breaking about those tweets because bashing black women is just reinforcing the status quo. And what has a preference for light skin women got to do with making offensive and derogatory comments about dark skinned women? Absolutely nothing.
Anyway I’m done with these attention seeking Twitter celebrities. I really hope he puts his energy into doing something constructive rather than trying to piss people off on social networking sites.
“Its sad to see that not only is he black and darkskinned but the girls agreeing with him, are, with long weaves and light shining on their faces so they look lighter.”
It is really sad. I forgot that some do that. Its depressing.
I remember a while ago when the vujanic made unfunny jokes about the African cup of nations and maybe a hand full of young African girls didn’t find the jokes funny at all and decided to tell him. Those poor girls were practically dragged on twitter called every name under the sun and who were the perpetrators of such insults? Young African people from London. ‘it’s 2012 who cares’ ‘it’s just banter, calm down’ and tweets to that effect and now you have him dancing in a Dbanj video and that’s given him more leeway for him to tweet more out of boundary African jokes. SMH.
Why does this not surprise me. Lol. Lost I tell you LOST!
But one day he might go too far with the jokes and those same ones who once defended him will complain and moan. If/when that happens I will laugh.
Why this impudent scoundrel Keith would even play “devil’s advocate” on such a topic is beyond me. The problem, and is always the problem, when chieftains like this run their chops, is YOU have to now deal with the aftermath of this guy’s sewage in normal everyday life when a member of the general public approaches you thinking that the majority of black people co-sign such garbage. This kind of nonsense goes far beyond banter.
As for this Vujanic character, he needs to step his Edomite self off to the side and remain there until summoned, his opinion is so not valid when it comes down to black people, light skinned or dark skinned, nor is his opinion a requirement. Why is it that white people always feel the need to jump onto bandwagons that involve the degradation of blacks? Because THEY DO NOT LIKE YOU NEGRO, get it through your head.
This Keith aka Mr Exposed needs to be strapped down, lashed with a whip 50 times at full strength and then have salt, chillies and pepper spray rubbed into his wounds. A dunder head and a pracatan in his prime. Light skin vs dark skin???? Wouldn’t surprise me if there was a JewISH hand involved somewhere in the re-drafting up of this controversial nonsense. Sorry punk, I’m not co-signing your nonsense, I do not hate myself or my people.
Cosign Miss Steele
Hit the nail accurately on the head, we are all in the same boat, its just that some stupid Negroes for some reason cannot seem to grasp this fact yet.
He’s suffering from status anxiety. The lighter you are, the higher the status.
Keith Dube, lets leave the thirstiness in 2011 and discuss more mature and intelligent issues. I know that somewhere in that pound of flesh between your ears is an ounce of maturity. A mind is a terrible thing to waste. FYI, there’s no playing the devil’s advocate in a topic like this because its not like history has ever documented light skinned black people facing soo much hardship because of their skn tone. Know the meaning of the words you use and know your facts.
Can i just say the “team” at pardon my blog, the blog hosting this nonsense should be held accountable. Why did they allow it to be published? I’m sure they are rubbing their hands with glee at the increased hits. They gave a format for someone who spewed hatred for weeks at darkskin women and have given him a platform for his nonsensical ramblings
@ lou that is disgusting thank heavens i have never heard of this vujanic gollum like in appearance “comedian”. I’m sure his black friends tap dance in their spare time anyway.
These people are truly lost causes.
unfortunately mr exposed represents the generation of crack babies that have unfortunately learned to use twitter to the fullest
When are black people gonna wake up KMT. I’m tired, tired tired of ignorant black people, and dickhead whiteboys who think because they have black friends that means they’re down and can take the piss out of black people, and the worse thing is some black people are so dumb and accepting they support these fools all we ever do is go around trying to please everyone but ourselves as for the light skin dark skin it’s just bulls*** dumb niggas.
Sounds like Keith has been blown out been out by a few sisters before. Awww didums!! This idiot has the combined IQ of a raisin. He actually spent a month conducting an experiment to try and find out what the result would be if he sent out tweet insults to women who have the same skin tone (or darker) than him. What did he think would happen? The whole point of an experiment is to try and gain results that we didn’t know existed.
Err hello, if you read the history books, you will see that dark skin women have been insulted since the days of the slave trade (Willie Lynch your legacy lives on!!), so what exactly is the point of this foolish blog post. All this post has done is re-enforce what we all know has been happening in the black community for many centuries, that a section of black men hate themselves. They bang on about having a preference (which is fine), but if you have a preference, why do you feel the need to insult the people you may not be attracted to?
This is why many people over the age of 25 look at these kids like a bunch of simpletons, who’s sole purpose is to act like a bunch of FASSYS in their lame attempts to seem like “there down!” Question, who they trying to be down with? In order to be down, is it the done thing to disrespect your own? Funny, I don’t see no other race in the world do that. It would probably explain why other races can come into our culture so easily, sell it off and pimp us like the bitches we have become (ex:black music, we are responsible for creating it, but own none of it. Why don’t they do a blog piece on that? Is that not cool enough!)
Its shame as there are many under the age of 25 who do not think like this “wasteman”. Unfortunately, they will get tarred with the same idiot brush as this bwoy due to a sheer accident of birth.
They reckon that the site is “a ruthless approach to blogging”. They obviously haven’t tasted Verbs’s medicine. Come and challenge me O Keithy boy, you think you’re harsh, I’ll send you back to your cage with no seconds bub.
This blog post is yet another sad reminder of what happens when you don’t know your history and why parents need to have these conversations with their children, because this is beyond sad.
It’s interesting that the majority of his references to dark skinned women are derogatory, yet he claims that he’s not biased.
“I have dated light skinned girls & I would say to them “I don’t usually go for light skinned girls but …” << and they actually were cool with this?!
And then this:
"I've f**ked enough 10's" "a lot, not all, of the women commenting were all below 5/10's"
Let's forget about the dark skin/light skinned argument for a second and break down which person over the age of 14 uses a rating system to put women in, and that image?!
The 'it's my opinion' excuse seems to be his get out clause for this nonsense when anyone who knows even basic black history can see this man clearly has insecurity issues. I'm sick and tired of the increasing number of black men that feel no way to take digs at black women (light or dark skinned) and expect us to just sit their and take it, yet when we voice our opinion we're "haters" or have too much attitude.
Although his comments about people rarely getting offended when light skinned women are made fun off are fair the rest of his tirade is worrying. How is he comfortable to share his opinion but when people express theirs, it's a problem? Pure madness!
He needn't even have received any replies because he's snitched on himself, and to the women of a darker hue to supported this fool…I can't even begin to entertain what foolishness is going on in the vacant space where your brain is supposed to be.
All those misguided foolish black youngsters and comedians who embrace this Vujanic character and his piss taking of black culture need to understand that these Eastern Europeans are not your friends and are known for their racist views. Also they need to do their research in to Serbian history.
What’s up with the young dark skinned black females supporting this born loser’s article? SMDH
You’re on point.
The problem with so many black people is they want to look and be cool, but have got seriously confused with what being cool is. In the black community there seems to be a lack of men it just seems to be insecure overgrown boys.
Totally agree with what MissSteele said. It’s one thing to have a preference, it’s another thing to completely abuse the women you don’t like. It saddens me to see black people rip each other down as if we don’t have to deal with enough the moment we leave our door. This self hate is a sad, sad thing.
Instead of rehashing these backward and pathetic comments, black people in general need to start taking issue with our representation in the media irrespective of our complexion.
I also love that when these men profess their love of “light skin” women, they either reference overtly sexual women, or even better, they use what power they have and pick these women to continue the whole we-can-only-function-when-we-are-sexual theme in music videos, films, television shows, etc.
And supporters of this idiot and anyone like him, need to find a new argument. The assumption that anyone not agreeing with them is jealous, bitter, or angry is getting a little tired.
Someone needs to take that gutter troll Keith and his pasty goat sidekick Vujanic back to whatever cave they crawled out from.
He is just a fool i just have to say it. This is the problem i have with some Black people.. You think it’s cute to say degrading things about the Black woman. But you want the Black woman to remain silent. You put this kind of poison out there for the world to see. But you never once care that this kind of publicity could even more so hurt the Black woman image. Yes some may not care…but it is the perception and the negative imagery you are showing the world. The Black woman has a hard enough time just getting respect…just because of fools like you. Why not take a lick out of the white woman….i bet he would apologize profusely. I bet he would bend over backwards to make sure they are ok. See this kind of kooness behavior has to stop. He thinks he’s being cleaver….but he is being a tiny lil man…with no respect for himself or even his Black mother. These are the people you need to stop supporting. This fool is just that a fool…and he will never see it. And you Black women…stop playing to fool to all of these shiftless azz negros! You are worth more than that…why don’t you see it. Slave mentality ….light against dark!! Aren’t you tired of all this bullshit! Why do people put up with this kind of behavior? And this dude The Vujanice has the nerves to think that it’s ok for him to cosign this…he is not even Black!! Wow! Is this how you guys get down in the Uk?? This is some straight up BULLSHIT! I’m shaking my head because this seems to be the norm there… Say the hell what you like about someone Black and its ok…. I cosign everything Militant X said…..
Finally a bunch of intelligent people talking sense on the matter. The only people that are “co-signing” this foolishness are that peasant’s sheep on twitter, who probably all attend the same youth club.
I find it amusing that Keith has this page bookmarked in his favourites and keeps coming back to see what we have all said about his very badly written article. Of course he has to go and make a screen shot of some of these comments and post it to his twitter, because the insecure little boy wants his sheep to cuss us all out, as he needs some reassurance that he’s in the “right.”
However “big” he might like to think he is (or is trying to get)… by the comments he has made both in his blog and on twitter, you can tell he is still an immature, uneducated, insecure, ignorant little boy.
Have a seat Keith… both you and your friend, Vagina, who is probably laughing at your stupidness behind your back.
What I find funny is that so many of you complain about the vitriol spewed by the blogger, yet you mirror him with the remarks you’ve left on this blog page.
And to Mad News Blog, when blogging one should try and be objective and not subjective. Your blog reeks bias.
Thanks for the advice. But this is my blog and I will continue to blog how I damn well please. Now Galang!
To ‘mirror’ that douche we would have to hoid every dark skin black male accountable for his idiocy under the guise of our ‘preference’ for intelligence. BTW A blog, by its very definitiion is a personal journal or web-log. thus will always ‘reek of bias’ as it is a personal account. SMH (where do these fools come from?)
Itsnotserious proves why reading is fundamental.
In order for this blog to “mirror” Mr. Keith’s; mandatory comments regarding Mr. Keith’s complexion and calling out all his followers as jealous would be required.
Seeing as most posters have done no such thing and merely pointed out said comedian’s stupidity -which is no longer an opinion but a fact- I think it is safe to say Itsnotserious’s comment is poo. Just as Mr. Keith’s comments are poo.
Oh, and Itsnotserious? It’s not that serious.
“Objective and not subjective” according to who or what standard? This “suggestion” is straight out of Orwell’s 1984 and is a typical recommendation that comes under Group Think. See how you are NOT allowed to be an individual in this day and age according to the brainwashed zombie public who always perform their positions well as the useful idiots they are, to attempt to stamp out individual thoughts and actions when they arise from their free thinking brethren?
I challenge the young boy Kevin to dare show his face on here, I do not think the bredder has the bottle. And let him bring that Edomite comedian with him as a tag team partner. Won’t make a difference, they’ll both get buried and anyone else who decides to co-sign to this utter stupidity.
I wouldn’t be surprised if @itsnotserious was one of Keith’s friends. It’s sad that they’re not even reading the comments properly, instead, just wanna throw the word ‘hater’ around. It’s sad that I’m the same age as these people yet I feel like I’m the only one that’s not into this bandwagon urban culture where everything goes and it’s all in the name of ‘banter’. Keith seems to think its his blog that sparked outrage when in-fact, it was the so-called experiment used to back up such an inaccurate generalisation of a particular shade of woman. Lastly, it broke my heart to see girls saying ‘it’s not a big deal, I wasn’t offended and I’m a darkie’ DARKIE? Darkie! Lost I tell you! Lost!
My bad, Keith not Kevin. Come on down if you think you can deal with some intelligent black men and women.
It’s not serious……. no you’re not serious, where is the rule book for having a blog????? what the hell are you talking about, this isn’t newspaper journalism it’s a blog and having a blog is about expressing your own opinon. SMH.
I am an American and I am just disgusted . What is going on in the UK????
I checked out this Vujanic’s work on YouTube and young black people in the UK seriously need to wake up. This Serbian is mocking yall.
Young black beautiful dark skinned women you need to stop supporting that dumb mofo Mr Exposed. That fool needs to be thrown out with the rest of the trash.
I’m from the UK and sadly I would have to agree with you, the problem with some of the black people in the UK is they are afraid, they’re afraid of being called racist when it comes to white people so they accept all kinds of crap for example black people are too afraid to call something a black event so they have to say urban to please white people but then they have no problem being racist against their own it pisses me off
saw this video featured on Bossip. This dark skinned black guy dissing black guys and allowing his white girlfriend to do the same. shameful http://youtu.be/uPGi8o5w9nk
oops typo meant they are dissing black women. not black guys.
That video is actually hilarious. I couldnt watch all but the gist of it was fake hair & attitude? Noticing a pattern here. Most peoples attitudes are defined by how YOU treat THEM. I think some black men are missing that point. These are the very same people who are stereotyped as thugs or criminals by the way they dress.
Using the logic of that blog, if you get upset by this white girls comments you MUST be insecure…. but only a weak insecure women would feel good about herself hearing her man diss other women for no good reason. Go figure.
Viewed a bit of that video @SoFrolushes, I’m perplexed by it but not surprised. This goes back to what I said earlier – the relationship between the black man and the black woman is under attack… by ourselves and outsiders… problems in our community will never be solved unless we heal our relationship between each other.
Agreed, black men on the whole need to stop bredding whitey and man up and black women on the whole need to cease the stubborness, the pride and the arrogance and put down their blackberrys and Iphones for 5 minutes so that we can come to the table and start the healing process.
This guy in the video needs to slapped up and then given an education I watched 30 seconds when she started talking about black women’s hair and then I turned it off because I knew it would ruin my day, doesn’t this guy have a black mother???? I don’t get it. SMH does he really think a white women respects a man whose race she can easily tear down. SMH again.
I agree with both of you verbs and Miss Steele, the problem is alot of black men put white women on a pedestal and think white women will be less stress when the fact is women are women and men are men lol. I hear white men moaning all the time about their white wife it’s so bad some of them go to the Phillipines, why do black men think because they are black things will be different.In my experience black women are straight up white women aren’t at first they’re cool then they switich, I’ve seen it with my own eyes.
Barbie has filmed an “apology” …
She can keep it. Funny how her sidekick left her to deal with the backlash on her own.
As for Keith. I can’t be bothered to waste my time commenting on that misguided fool.
Wheres her side kick?? haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
Left you hanging, BYATCHHHHHHHH!!!!
Is that the type of black man she wants? Fool!
I’m reading the comments and I assume 99% of you are black women. Maybe some of the things he said could have been said differently, some of the points that were raised, were very valid. I’m not denying the fact that my mother is a “strong black woman” but I notice some behaviours that are described here, and half of you won’t see it in yourselves anyway. I observe a lot of black females who think its ok to insult another race, “white people need to season their meat” or “why do black men like white women when they can’t cook, can’t fuck and have no bums” like a black man isn’t allowed preference. When you have that kind of attitude, who wants to be with you anyway?
Hardly any of you agreed with at least some of the statements he made. You all got defensive and saw it as an attack instead of thinking that there was some truth in the article. People are allowed to voice their opinions, if you don’t fall into the category being described, why get defensive? If a black female wrote and article about black men saying we’re all useless, love white women and can’t look after children, which is what we hear from black women. I wouldn’t get offended because i don’t fall into this stereotype.
Bite my head off if you wish, but if he was looking for a reaction from black women, he clearly got it. Its a blog, people say things to cause reactions.
@someblackguy I previously said that he made points but its his alleged research that grinds my gears. Had he had just said ‘I prefer women of a lighter complexion’ I wouldn’t have been mad….its his preference and that doesn’t affect my life in any way. Its the fact that he was tweeting borderline hate-comments that didn’t need to have to be tweeted in the first place. His blog would have been worth some salt had his research been accurate but it wasn’t, so that’s why the outraged occurred….well at least that’s what my problem was.
@Some Black Guy
To quote reader Sacks,
“what has a preference for light skin women got to do with making offensive and derogatory comments about dark skinned women? Absolutely nothing.”
“Lighten up” – Not around these parts luv.
