What I experience growing up wasn't racism it was Colourism..
Colourism is not racism. It's defined as prejudice or discrimination against individuals with a dark skin tone, typically from people of the same ethnic or racial group. Often, light skinned people are deemed more attractive, more successful and smarter than dark skinned people. Can you imagine something like this exist? How on earth can someone think a person is not successful or smart because of the color or their skin?
