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?

As a black man, It'd be quite foolish of me to sit around and wait for someone else to do this.
I don't know a lot of guys in the city I live in, but online, I have some homeboys who aren't afraid to challenge systemic oppression and talk loudly and publicliy about Misogynoir.
We need to talk about intraracial rape culture.

The movie SKINNED, premiered January 9, 2016 on TV ONE cable. The movie raises the consciousness and concern around the International phenomenal known as skin bleaching. There are psychological, emotionally and mental ramifications and triggers for people that practice this lethal routine. The use of skin bleaching chemicals not only cause damage to the skin and skin cells, it also damages the self-esteem, self-respect and self-worth of the users. It is also known as colorism in some parts of the world.

And Happy New Year!
As we ae 2015 at this writing, I'm looking at this year in retrospect, with 2016 on the horizon.
On Critical Discourse, the first in 2016, we will review the significant stories of last year.
Where do we begin?
* Black Lives "Matter" (quotes mine), for previously, well-stated reasons
* The surprising rise (and) fall of Ben Carson (and the role of colorism and liberalism on black American’s rejection of him)
* Donald Trump
* Black Community and Police Relations
* The [attempted] Coronation of Hillary Clinton (and why I say, "if the black community’s reception of Barack Obama is "sleep", it's reception of Hillary will be a "coma")
* The high-tech lynching of Bill Cosby by the Ultra-Feminist, Blackman-Hater Gloria "Scottsboro" Allred
* Whatever else is on your mind.
TUNE IN THIS SATURDAY!
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.
