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.
