There's a really incredible phenomenon of discrimination within communities of color based on the degree of "shade." I had heard of this before but had never heard an actual term for it: shadeism.
This video on "shadeism" was posted by a friend of mine, Aneesah Dryver, who runs a blog on relationships. Aneesah said when posting it, "I've had to deal with shadeism growing up. Thank God I grew to love my beautiful dark skin tone. I hope little girls learn that they are still beautiful even though they don't look like the girls in the videos, magazines, etc
