* InferioritySuperiorityComplex: Gail seems to deal with whatever insecurities she has about her dark skin by almost relentlessly bullying Kay because of her light one.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Hypocrite}}: Gail complains about the ill treatment she receives because of her dark skin, but treats Kay like crap because of her fair complexion.


Added DiffLines:

** On the flip side, Gail is often unapologetically cruel to Kay regarding the latter's skin tone, taunting her about supposedly thinking she's better than the others because of her light complexion and snarking that the only reason she's interested in Robby is to make herself blacker. For someone who has often faced taunts because of her dark skin, it's incredibly hypocritical for her to turn around and do the same thing to someone else.

* GenreShift: In-universe, David encourages the girls to switch from CountryMusic to Music/{{Soul}}, as he knows that's what the American [=GIs=] will prefer to hear (and, not coincidentally, he prefers it himself). It works.

Added DiffLines:

** She also feels it necessary to point out to Robby that she's black, she's just "pale black." Robby responds by saying he is too.

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory


Added DiffLines:

* VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory: Unusually for this trope, the end of the film acknowledges the differences between the film's story and the people it was based on--who were two sisters and their two cousins (one of whom's son is a cowriter on the film).
* WhereAreTheyNowEnding: For the women the story was based on--two sisters and their two cousins. It also reveals that the son of one of them was a co-writer for the film
