BlueBlack – Red-Bone – Yallah : Colorism and the Black Community”

OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham

LISTEN LIVE HERE

“If you’re black, stay back; if you’re brown, stick around; if you’re yellow, you’re mellow; if you’re white, you’re all right.”

In sum, colorism refers to discrimination based on skin color. Colorism disadvantages dark-skinned people, while privileging those with lighter skin. Research has linked colorism to smaller incomes, lower marriage rates, longer prison terms and fewer job prospects for darker-skinned people. What’s more, colorism has existed for centuries both in and outside of black America. That makes it a persistent form of discrimination that should be fought with the same urgency that racism is.

Starts LIVE in One Hour . . . Join us, with updates on Marissa Alexander’s persecution and my favorite Colored Governor, Bobby Jindahl’s “Greatest Country in the world” fantasy.
