Light-skinned Privilege

June 9, 2017

Episode 10: Rico along with AK (co-host of WCW podcast) discuss light skin privilege. Is there such a thing? AK later recalls growing up light skin and the struggles of defining her blackness. We also talk house slave vs. field slave, brown paper bag test and skin bleaching. Does colorism hurt more than racism? 'If colorism is the child of white supremacy then light skin privilege is its grandchild.'
