Notes:
In the United States, as in many parts of the world, people are discriminated against based on the colour of their skin. This type of skin tone bias, or colourism, is both related to and distinct from discrimination on the basis of race, with which it is often conflated. Preferential treatment of lighter skin tones over darker occurs within racial and ethnic groups as well as between them. While America has made progress in issues of race over the past decades, discrimination on the basis of colour continues to be a constant and often unremarked part of life. In this book, Kimberly Jade Norwood has collected the most up-to-date research on this insidious form of discrimination, including perspectives from the disciplines of history, law, sociology, and psychology.
