Abstract

This paper overviews how colonization provided the foundation for ongoing white supremacy and discusses the numerous manifestations of colorism in several global regions. These include but are not limited to economic disparity, political injustice, and the vast and lucrative skin-lightening industry. By discussing how the culture of colonial hierarchy continues to influence beauty ideals, social stratification, and availability of opportunity worldwide, the permanence of white supremacy and the importance of reforming these standards is highlighted.
