In the 1980's I remember being at an Indian fashion Show in Liberia and there were clearly differences between the light skinned East Indian women and dark skinned East Indians. The history tells that the darker skinned Indians are akin to Africans.
There are dark and light skinned Italians, Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, and I could go on and on.
I was checking on You Tube for Liberian Music for my Face Book Page because I love Liberian Music and I came across this music video by Jessica Singh. I would guess that she is the mixed race girl of Liberian and East Indian heritage. The tune is catchy but the imagery is the same. The comments were interesting.
My question is why does color still matter? We now know scientifically that DNA, not color defines our ethnicity, and yet we still cling to color. Don't we?
