Honestly, the most powerful African American men in the world and in most industries are married to dark/brown-skinned women. Pay attention, and do your research. At the end of the day, mature and intelligent men marry quality; the complete package (Beauty, class, brains, dignity, depth, character and humility). Unfortunately, stereotypically, they can't find these qualities in most light-skinned women, since many of them lack substance. Society has done a "head job" on them. You can only have so much *** and try-out so many sexual positions and fantasies.
