Is Lighter Better?

The $subject is quite different from what I usually text about. With my busy schedule, I found some time to read certain sections of the book "Is Lighter Better? Skin-tone Discrimination among Asian Americans" by Joanne L. Rondilla and Paul R. Spickard. I was more interested in authors findings abouts Asians themselves about this deep rooted phenomenon. Come to think of it, most of the things we, Asians, experience about colorism are very true in this book. Take movie stars, those in TV commercials, presenters, etc.

It's a good read up on "colorism" and to get to know about people's experiences with skin-tone.
