Do Dark Skinned Blacks Face Greater Discrimination?


Black Is Beautiful, or Is It?

Are dark skinned Blacks included in the group of African Americans that comes to mind when we hear, "Black is beautiful?" It really all depends on the personal opinion of the one who makes the statement. He or she might be referring to the African American race in general, but excluding dark skinned African Americans.

Regardless of personal opinion, it is fair to say that some dark skinned Blacks do face a form of discrimination that lighter skinned members of the race do not. Notice that anti-discrimination statements appearing on forms such as employment applications mention not only race, but color also. There is a reason for this. The mention of both attempts to provide some form of protection against discrimination based specifically upon color, regardless of race.

Dark skinned Blacks are not the only ones who face "color issues" from within their race and from without. There is a very wide variance in skin color among the people of India. Some of them are virtually fair skinned while others are very dark skinned. Since many of these people also live in the United States, there was a genuine need for the specific mention of color in the wording of anti-discrimination clauses.

Light Skinned Blacks Versus Dark Skinned Blacks

One of the saddest realities is the existence of discrimination against dark skinned African Americans perpetrated by light skinned African Americans. Unfortunately, many of the attitudes that fuel this type of twisted discrimination stem from the past when the lighter the skin was, generally the better the person fared in society.

Also, certain textures of hair and facial features tend to be "grouped." Generally, the lighter the skin is, the straighter the hair is, and the finer the facial features are. Likewise, the darker the skin is, the kinkier the hair tends to be and the "fuller" the facial features tend to be. Perhaps beauty pageants have played a negative role in forming die-hard ideas about race an color in the United States. Perhaps the events of the past have caused discrimination against dark skinned Blacks. Perhaps it is a mixture of things that has sometimes caused color to become as much of an issue as race.

Everyone is allowed to have their personal opinion of what is beautiful when it comes to physical attraction. However, when it comes to friendship and fair treatment, character content is the only thing that a "color blind" person considers.

Christian Food for Thought

"...God is no respecter of persons. But, in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness is accepted with him" (KJV, Acts 2:35).

There is actually no such thing as a so-called "Light-Skinned
Black" person ... but rather ... such individuals and groups
are actually people who are of a 'Multi-Generational
Multiracially-Mixed' (MGM-Mixed) Lineage that some may
have been pressured or encouraged to ignore or downplay.
People of Mixed-Race lineage should NOT feel pressured to
'identify' according to any standards other than one's own.
The legal -application of the racist-'One-Drop Rule'
(ODR) was banned in the U.S. way back in 1967.
Listed below are related Links of 'the facts' of the histories
of various Mixed-Race populations found within the U.S.:
There is no proof that a 'color-based slave hierarchy'
(or that 'color-based social-networks') ever existed
as common entities -- within the continental U.S.
It was the 'Rule of Matriliny (ROM) -- [a.k.a. 'The Rule of Partus'
(ROP)] -- and NOT the racist-'One-Drop Rule' (ODR) -- that was
used to 'create more enslaved people' on the continental U.S.
This is because the chattel-slavery system that was
once found on the antebellum-era, continental U.S.
was NOT "color-based" (i.e. "racial") -- but rather
-- it was actually "mother-based" (i.e. 'matrilineal').
There were many ways (and not solely the sexual assault
and sexual exploitation of the women-of-color) in which
'white' lineage entered the familial bloodlines of
enslaved-people found on the continental U.S.
An 'Ethnic' category is NOT the
same thing as a "Race" category:

AllPeople: While there might not be such a thing as a light skinned black person, I think the article focused on what the eyes see - someone who belongs to the black race and who has dark or light skin. All the technicalities like differences between race, nationality, and ethnicity, really don't matter, people just know what attitudes exist in American society about skin color; it's that simple. And, the fact remains that dark skinned blacks have faced some forms of discrimination that light skinned blacks have not. We don't have to complicate the issue with technicalities or with going back into the history of the passing of laws that people never heard of, etc.
