I understand what you are saying Marah. I'm mixed with many white relatives. And I also feel brown people are considered less. Just look throughout history. Even today. I dont think anyone can disagree with this Honestly who can??
An episode of Without a Trace comes to mind. Two kids went missing. One white, one black. They tried to get coverage for the black kid to no avail. They even attempted to incorporate the black kid into press conferences, but they would just ignore and ask about the white blond girl. At the end only one kid was found alive, they never revealed which one. Sounds familar?
