Portuguese started this nonsense.  Fishermen from a small coastal society who had never seen black men before.  You can imagine Portuguese peasant/navigators who saw their first black man indicating to themselves "geez, they're not even human."  Peasants.  The early Renaissance.  Do the math.

Do the math?  What on earth are you talking about?  I admit, I can't "do the math" on your above statement.  How about you show me your mathematical solution as it relates to what you've said.  Before you tell others to "do the math", you must first demonstrate that you are capable of doing so and thus worthy of making such a declaration.

White Colorism

First Published February 5, 2015 Research Article CROSSMARK_Color_horizontal.svg
 

Abstract

Perhaps reflecting a desire to emphasize the enduring power of rigidly constructed racial categories, sociology has tended to downplay the importance of within-category variation in skin tone. Similarly, in popular media, “colorism,” or discrimination based on skin lightness, is rarely mentioned.

 

When colorism is discussed, it is almost exclusively framed in terms of intraracial “black-on-black” discrimination. In line with arguments highlighting the centrality of white racism, the present paper contends that it is important for researchers to give unique attention to white colorism.

 

Using data from the 2012 American National Election Study, an example is presented on white interviewers’ perceptions of minority respondent skin tone and intelligence (N = 223). Results from ordinal logistic regression analyses indicate that African American and Latino respondents with the lightest skin are several times more likely to be seen by whites as intelligent compared with those with the darkest skin.

 

The article concludes that a full accounting of white hegemony requires an acknowledgment of both white racism and white colorism.

Abstract

Dark-skinned blacks in the United States have lower socioeconomic status, more punitive relationships with the criminal justice system, diminished prestige, and less likelihood of holding elective office compared with their lighter counterparts.

 

This phenomenon of “colorism” both occurs within the African American community and is expressed by outsiders, and most blacks are aware of it.

 

Nevertheless, blacks' perceptions of discrimination, belief that their fates are linked, or attachment to their race almost never vary by skin color. We identify this disparity between treatment and political attitudes as “the skin color paradox” and use it as a window into the politics of race in the United States over the past half-century.

 

Using national surveys, we explain the skin color paradox as follows: Blacks' commitment to racial identity overrides the potential for skin color discrimination to have political significance.

That is, because most blacks see the fight against racial hierarchy as requiring their primary allegiance, they do not see or do not choose to express concern about the internal hierarchy of skin tone. Thus dark-skinned blacks' widespread experience of harm has no political outlet — which generates the skin color paradox.
