Show Notes

S2Ep2: Today on MProper Mimi we are taking a look at colorism aka blanquemiento, which is the discrimination on the color of one's skin. In many cultures colorism occurs within the same race or ethnic groups with some believing that lighter skin is better than darker skin. Tune in as Mimi Jacks is joined by Elisa Jaramillo to talk about the impact colorism has had on our families, our Black and Latinx communities and how we raise our kids through the intersectionality of it all. Preferential treatment can definitely lead to bias' and discrimination - so let's talk about it!
