Chocolate me and Mixed me two children’s books by Taye Diggs…(my opinion)

I want to write children’s books maybe even a series of children’s books where the protagonist is a little black girl. Taye Diggs the author of Chocolate Me and of Mixed Me seems less happy with Chocolate Me! than he does with “Mixed Me” the children’s book he wrote for biracial and multiracial kids. I am very comfortable in my own chocolate skin and so I can bring analysis to these two children’s books that I admit to never have read and only to know about. I don’t know too many Chocolate brown skinned people who are as self accepting, self aware who are actually self love advocates other than myself. If I can be honest usually darker skinned brothers have a built in self hatred where they marry women who are lighter skinned or are of another race but this is because they are self loathing men. All black men are not self loathing but most are in my opinion. Kanye West is one of them. I have no problem with black men who date outside of their race. I’ve had relationships with white men but I don’t hate myself and I’m not trying to get with the lightest skinned man to have babies with. I have been told I was attractive by some white men who have been very nice to me. I wouldn’t marry a man that didn’t adore me and some white men are really handsome and very nice, while others are racist and mean! Most white men I’ve met are nice! When I think of “Mixed Me” I think that this book is for Taye Diggs and his biracial children he had with either a white woman or an Asian woman maybe both. This brother doesn’t really like himself. He is self hating in my opinion. I couldn’t even say this if I wasn’t the self love advocate and beautiful chocolate woman I am! I hope people comment on this post!
