An eye opening discussion that will not be sugar coated!
There are a variety of stigmas associated with the various shades of “black” skin, within the black culture itself! For example: “…she’s pretty for a dark skinned girl…or, she’s dark, but she got good hair...”Terms like: “high yellow, blue-black, burple, redbone…” these are all phrases and terms some folks use within the black community to describe different shades of black skin. Each respective shade has some associated stigmas. In many cases you’d think it was the 1940’s, 50’s, or 60’s, but no! This is still happening in 2015.
What kind of psychological impact does it have on a person and the culture as a whole? What about the beautiful woman who is pretty and has a deep dark brown complexion? Should she be made to feel inferior because of her skin complexion? Or the guy that is perpetually told he is “soft or pretty” because he is light? Skin bleaching, over aggressive toxic behavior, the list goes on and on.
This is not only happening in the black community, but other ethnic groups deal with ‘COLORISM.’ What affects do you think colorism has on society and on individuals?

Historical Perspectives of Colorism: Colorism in the Antebellum Period
Guest: Andrew N. Wegmann, Ph.D. (ABD)
The subject of colorism within the black community is orginated back in slavery. The slavemaster would rape African women and produce biracial children. The children were lighter skin tone and was treated better than darker slaves. The slavemaster established colorism but in 2015 we are still dealing with this issue. We are all black at the end of the day but this issue can't die. I notice colorism is more of a issue with the women in our community. We need to explore this issue on the show tonight.
