Sorry you're going through this. Colorism dates back to slavery, when slaveowners pitted light skinned blacks against darker skinned ones and tended to give fairer ones jobs in the house and the darker ones jobs in the field. Also, those with fairer skin were given more positive attributes-they were smarter, prettier, etc. This crap has no place in the 21st century but unfortunately, some of us still cling to it. Personally, I don't see it disappearing completely until systemic racism ends in general and we know when that'll be
