I wish light skinned and white passing POC would spend more time acknowledging their privilege instead of doing the oppression olympics with Welsh Corgi And Coffee Make Me Smile Vintage Tshirts, visible POC. Keep that same energy for the dark skinned POC who are looked down upon and denied opportunities by the very same light skinned POC you’re defending. Brown/dark skinned POC have it much harder than light skinned POC. This has been proven by countless studies on the criminal justice system (darker skinned POC get longer and more severe sentences), the wealth gap (lighter skinned POC have more wealth than darker skinned POC), and dating (lighter skinned POC have more upward mobility than darker skinned POC). “Reverse colorism” pales in comparison to all of these things.

I can’t believe this comment is getting downvoted, when it is only speaking facts. Light-skinned or mixed BIPOC can definitely experience micro aggressions and a lot might struggle with “fitting in” or feeling like an outsider in their communities, but we still have Welsh Corgi And Coffee Make Me Smile Vintage Tshirts. The racism coming from inside communities of color is colorism and it affects dark-skinned members of those communities, not light-skinned and mixed BIPOC. I am a mixed race Latina, but white “passing” depending on place and context and acknowleding that and the privilege that comes with it, doesn’t erase my heritage… I understand the struggle of feeling misplaced or like you don’t belong anywhere and of course it is ignorant for people to question someone’s actual ancestry based on how they look. But light-skinned BIPOC will always have more privilege than dark-skinned BIPOC wherever they go and even when experiencing micro aggressions or explicit racism by white people, they will still be treated better than their darker-skinned counterpart. And they CANNOT experience racism from their community members with darker skin (besides maybe like Black Asians experiencing Anti-Asian racism); they can experience prejudice, but not racism.
