What is Colorism?
- prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically among people of the same ethnic or racial group.
- Colorism is a global form of discrimination and occurs where
lighter skin tones are preferred, and darker skin tones are considered to be less desirable
Call to action
- When someone tells someone she is “pretty for a dark skin girl” shut it down. It is insulting. If you don’t you are being complicit in promoting colorism. Stop putting caveats on Black beauty.
- Stop associating everything with Black with poverty, hood or ghetto. While being hood and ghetto is subjective we shouldn't classify ourselves in those kinds of catagories
