Although slavery ended over 150 years ago, the effects of this mentality remain today. Research shows that darker-skinned African Americans are disproportionately disadvantaged in many areas. For example, one study found a hiring advantage for lighter-skinned African Americans, even when the resumes of dark versus light skinned applicants were identical (Harrison & Thomas, 2009).
Colorism and Beauty
These biases are particularly salient for African American women, as the American ideal of beauty is primarily Eurocentric. Women who have lighter skin, straighter hair, and more European facial features are preferred over those features considered more historically African. Thus, many Black women wrestle with their physical appearance and whether they meet the dominant culture’s female ideal. They may straighten and lighten their hair to be closer to the Eurocentric standard. Black women put more time and energy into their physical appearance, which may be in part to compensate for being considered less attractive than White women.
"Lord, if, as thou hast taught us, the woman is the highest form of humanity, and the last to be assumed, how comes it that thou, the Christ, art still in the lower form of man? Why comest thou not to lead the perfect life, and to save the world as woman? For surely, thou hast attained to womanhood." And Jesus answered, "I have attained to womanhood, as thou sayest; and already have I taken the form of woman. But there are three conditions under which the soul returns to the man's form; and they are these:--
"1st. When the work which the Spirit proposes to accomplish is of a
nature unsuitable to the female form.
"2nd. When the Spirit has failed to acquire, in the degree necessary
to perfection, certain special attributes of the male character.
"3rd. When the Spirit has transgressed, and gone back in the path of
perfection, by degrading the womanhood it had attained. - Essene Gospels
"Good morning. Straight forward question do you believe in God as in the God in heaven? Do you believe He's Supreme/Ultimate? I pray to that God a lot, it's what I was taught. But do you?"

Howdy, loyal citizens! Welcome to the latest edition of Afronerd Radio's Mid Week in Review broadcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm (EST). Join Dburt and Capt. Kirk as they wax politic and prophetic on the following topics: a brief pre-Grindhouse discussion regarding our visit to this past weekend's Black Comic Book Festival located at the legendary Schomburg Black History Museum; Dburt gives his last diatribe on the folly of intraracial colorism at the advent of the release of the Light Girls doc on the OWN network; and there's probably a similar rant as it pertains to Black investment in the Academy Awards; Tesla's Elon Musk is hoping to revolutionize public transportation with his Hyperloop transit system; analyzing actor Anthony Mackie's recent comments about race, Selma and racial profiling (now Anthony you know you can't have a non-tribal/individualistic opinion!); and speaking of Selma, why has Dburt delayed watching the film (and thankfully, Cap has seen it) and lastly, was MSNBC's Ronan Farrow awkwardly condescending toward a young Black attendee to POTUS' latest State of the Union address? You decide. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
