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.
skin is pigmented.. and AINT NO SUCH THING AS A GREY PERSON UNLESS THEY AREN'T BREATHING..

The Effects of Colorism on Girls and Women of Color: An Interview with the Award Winning Filmmaker of Yellow Fever, Ng’endo Mukii.
Join Dr. Culbreth and Kenyan filmmaker Ng'endo Mukii for a discussion on Ms. Mukii's film Yellow Fever, a film focusing on the effects of colorism on the self-image and self-esteem of girls and women of color.
On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will be discussing two topics. The first topic we will discuss is colorism in the so-called Black community. Can someone not be "Black" enough? Can someone rap about "Blacker the Berry" while having a fiance' that represent the extreme opposite. Is colorism a real problem in Black America? The second topic we will be discussing is the the use of the word n*gga. Does that word hold Black people back? Can someone be revolutionary yet use that word? Those are some of the questions we'll discuss. Join us.
The issue of colorism in the black diaspora is as old as slavery and colonialism itself. Any discussion of the topic brings up many painful incidents of childhood and every black person seems to have a story to tell about how it has affected their lives in some way. The various issues that exist around skin shade have affected the way that black people view themselves and each other. Of particular interest is the effect and impact that colorism has had on dark skinned black women. Rashida Marie Strober is taking on the task of tackling the issue and speaking out against the discrimination that dark skinned women have faced and bringing to the forefront the impact it has had on their well being emotionally and psychologically. Join us for a lively discussion of her new book and the topic of colorism in the black community. CALL IN WITH QUESTIONS: 347.215.8933
On this episode of Field Afrikan Radio we will be discussing colorism and what is Black and what isn't Black. Does the lightness or darkness of a person's skin matters when dealing with Black militantcy? We will also discuss the continuous systematical murders of Black men by racist police.

Is White Better? The lighter you are does that make you prettier? Smarter? More desirable. Many women of color are using bleaching elements to make themselves lighter. And if they are not using the chemicals they may also be doing it by photoshopping to make them appear lighter aka whiter. What does this do for a woman's self esteem? Where is this coming from?
