Colorism/Neo-Colorism
Snell, Joel
Education, v138 n2 p205-209 Win 2017
There are numerous aspects to being non-Caucasian that may not be known by Whites. Persons of color suggest folks who are African, South Americans, Native Americans, Biracial, Asians and others. The question is what do these individuals feel relative to their color and facial characteristics. Eugene Robinson suggest that the future favorable color is "beige." It appears that even Caucasians seek out an orange or orange tan color by sunbathing, tanning beds or using chemicals to make themselves appear more attractive or hide skin allergies. Colorism can be hurtful and this article suggest that it is not going away. Further, changing one's appearance toward Caucasian is more accommodative such as Washington and Garvey positions (see below) On the other hand, W.E.B. Dubois suggest that NOT trying to change one's complexion and fighting for constitutional battle go together.
