Because Unkotare people of every race and class have been affected by class discrimination. I never understood how pervasive it was, until I read a story written by an Asian girl who "scrubbed" her dark skin daily trying to be white like her sister. I never HEARD of such a thing! In my family, some of my siblings have my dad's tanner darker skin and some of us have my Mom's light complexion. I always saw it as taking after Dad or Mom, not as a white privilege thing. Skin color isn't just an obsession with White Europeans vs. Black African descendants. The whole "light skin dark skin" obsession has people arguing if * Black people are selling out to look or act White for class privilege * Latinos are selling out or not not just European white people pulling the White privilege card. People are still arguing on both sides "whether Beyonce is selling out by lightening her skin" or if she is just like any other show biz person changing their appearance to be as marketable as possible. Until people get this resolved, apparently they won't get over it! It's a class issue, and skin color is how it manifests where people can see something going on, and question where did that come from???
