Colorism: A History of Self-Hate
For years, I understood the undercover battle of light-skinned black folks versus dark skin black folks. I knew it existed; had seen it, heard it and even indulged in it, but never knew it had a name; not until recently.
Colorism — prejudice or bias against persons on the basis of their skin color or complexion, often among persons of the same racial identification.
Merriam Webster doesn’t even have a definition for this word yet.
