The Dynamics of Colorism
Series: The Historical Perspectives
Topic: Intraracial Colorism (Black vs. Black)

Hosts: Dr. Donnamaria Culbreth
Sarah L. Webb
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?

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.
Greetings to all our supporters (and detractors..what the hey)! Pull up a seat and listen to a new installment of our Mid Week in Review podcast airing this Wednesday at 7:30pm EST-courtesy of the Afronerd Radio machine. Join Capt. Kirk and Dburt as they attempt to shed light on the following topics: it appears that Dburt has additional thoughts about the recent racial controversies centering around the student body of the University of Missouri (the acronym SJW comes to mind); as expected, Black twitter appears to have a problem with not only director, Spike Lee's upcoming Chiraq film but his views on intraracial violence (sigh); Hollywood whitewashing continues with new The Gods of Egypt film (hint: no actual Egyptians were cast) and again, the cyberwebs react; and in a gross case of over-reaction, a 67 year old White woman gets arrested for pulling a gun on a Black man who was asking for a light and we will try to do some house cleaning by addressing issues we failed to tackle from previous broadcasts. Call the hosts live at 646-915-9620.
A plethora of factors impact the development of black girls including racism, colorism, education, negative stereotypes, identity issues, socioeconomic issues, opportunities, disparate treatment, invisibility and diversity and inclusion, recognition, and their voices among other factors.
Join Dr. Culbreth, Dr. Denise Davis-Maye and Ms. kYmberly Keeton for an eye opening and thought-provoking discussion on the factors impacting the development of Black Girls and strategies to help Black girls reach higher ground.
Historically the diversity of girls and women of color has been ignored, insulted, and
“We live in a society that does not always embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Research has thoroughly documented how negative stereotypes, negative perceptions, and standards of beauty do not include or embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Low values placed on girls and women of color with respect to their voices, emotional needs, abilities, and physical attributes (hair, skin color, body image, and other phenotypes) affect the psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being of girls and women of color.” (Culbreth, 2014)
Join Dr. Culbreth and guests, Professor Celeste Atkins, Professor LaToya Lee and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim for a thought-provoking discussion on standards of beauty and how girls and women of color are treated disparately in society because of their skin color, race, hair, weight, etc. Topics will include colorism, racism, weight, body shamming, the foundation of beautiful among other topics and suggestions for moving forward.
Social media has become the means of communicating, connecting, networking, sharing, and activism in the twenty-first century. We have witnessed social media as a medium for news, events, advertising, public shaming, and publishing, etc. However, the question of how social media impacts girls and women of color is one that promises to view social media in a different light.
Join Dr. Culbreth, Professor Charish Halliburton and Dr. Alessandra Rosa for an enlightening discussion on how social media impacts the lives of girls and women of color in the twenty-first century psychologically, emotionally, physically and socially. Topics include racism, colorism, and other isms, social justice, mixed race identity, movements, selfies, self-esteem, bullying, professionalism, education, politics, personal issue, bullying, dangers, risks, and the pros and cons of using social media among other topics.
