"Seeing Color: Colorism and the Black Community" 

  “If you’re black, stay back;if you’re brown, stick around;

if you’re yellow, you’re mellow;if you’re white, you’re all right.” 

Colorism disadvantages dark-skinned people, while privileging those with lighter skin. Research has linked colorism to smaller incomes, lower marriage rates, longer prison terms and fewer job prospects for darker-skinned people.
