Colorism is real.

A new study from Villanova University found that white job interviewers viewed lighter-skinned blacks and Latinos as more intelligent than their darker-skinned counterparts. The study highlights the disturbing reality that the same biases that allow “white privilege” to flourish favor not only white people, but also those people of color who are in closer proximity to whiteness and white skin. We’re not doing enough to address it.

“Oh, God! I’m gonna die alone
Adolescence didn’t make sense
A little loss of innocence
The ugly years of being a fool
Ain’t youth meant to be beautiful?”

Please stop telling the following people that they aren’t black enough:

- Black people with vitiligo

- Black people that are albino

- Black people that are light-skinned and/or bi-racial

- Black people with light eyes

- Black people that do not have their hair natural

-Black people who are Latinx

Your black is so beautiful!
