‘Colorism’ will change how you see

Did you look the way that you wanted to look as a child? Did people taunt you because of the way you looked? More specifically, did you or maybe even your family treat you differently because of the color of your skin?

 

Racism is not even close to a new topic on Americans’ minds right now, but the word colorism might be. Whereas we once saw racism is a black vs white or Latino vs black issue, the play, “Colorism,” (now playing) finally asks people – ALL PEOPLE – to look at race in a totally different way. Just consider how a tiny difference in shade of skin can cause massively different perceptions of people in society.
